Yesterday we decided to take a trip down to Faro de Punta Jandia, the lighthouse at the very southern tip of Fuerteventura. Although the weather on Sunday wasn’t brilliant, when we set off yesterday morning at about 9.30am it wasn’t too bad, just a few broken clouds.
We made it to Morro Jable when the heavens opened up and it absolutely chucked it down! So we were in a bit of a dilemma; having come this far do we carry on or turn back? We decided to carry on a bit further and were glad we did! As we rounded a bend we could see the lighthouse and the village of Puertito de la Cruz in the distance were both bathed in sunshine!
So we slowly continued along on the wet and muddy track, passing the turn-off for Cofete, passing Puertito de la Cruz and finally arriving at de Punta Jandia. We were lucky and the rain didn’t follow us. A good day for taking photos! As usual, the weather was windy, but still warm enough for t-shirts and shorts.
With the weather being so bad in Morro Jable, we expected to be the only ones daft enough to make the journey, but there were quite a few others who decided it would be worth the risk!
A word of warning for those who want to do this trip after it has been raining. The road was VERY slippery and, despite the sun and the wind, it had not dried out by the time we made our way back along it, so take extreme care!
