MILES OF GOLDEN BEACHES
What was once a small fishing village with only 200 inhabitants, Morro Jable has now grown into one of the biggest holiday resorts for German tourists on the island.
It was during the early eighties that tourism first took off after the construction of the first Robinson club.
At that time you could only get to the resort via rough sand tracks and it wasn't until 1982 when the new main road was finished that things really started to happen.
WHAT TO DO:
Nowadays Morro Jable has something for everyone. The miles of golden beaches and clear blue seas, shops, bars and restaurants of attract thousands of tourists each year.
Morro Jable lies about 100km from the airport.
Despite all the tourism the old village still remains intact and there is a quaint harbour in the west of the town which is used by local fishermen and yachtsmen and you can still escape the hustle and bustle should you wish to take a leisurely walk along the promenade or check out one of the local beaches.
Some of the beaches here are the longest and most beautiful 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 neighbouring island of Gran Canaria.
