8 beaches on Fuerteventura have been awarded Blue Flag status in the 2018 list:
Puerto del Rosario: Playa Blanca, Puerto Lajas, Los Pozos.
La Oliva: Grandes Playas, La Concha (Chica), Charco de las agujas, Corralejo Viejo (la Goleta).
The Ayuntamiento of Pajara which has beaches in the south of the island chose not to submit any applications for Blue Flag status even though the beaches meet all the cleanliness/facilities requirements. They do not like the restrictions on limiting sea fishing which would affect the local fishermen.
