Costa Calma & Jandía areas
Costa Calma lies about 80km south of the airport on the edge of the national park area of Jandia.
The highlight of Costa Calma has to be the long sandy beaches where it is always easy to find a quiet, sheltered spot.
Jandía has the longest and some of the most beautiful beaches in the Canary Islands stretching 35km and there's plenty to do for the water sports enthusiast from jet skiing to windsurfing.
Its also possible to take a jet foil from here over to the neighboring island of Gran Canaria.
Costa Calma & Jandia are largely tailored towards German-speaking visitors although there are now both English, Spanish & French companies that deal with this area.
The south has something for everyone, with miles of golden beaches, clear blue seas, shops, bars and restaurants that attract thousands of tourists each year.
