Costa Calma lies about 80km south of the airport on the edge of the national park area of Jandia. It is a relatively recent resort and only started expanding in 1984.
The beaches here have fantastic, white sand, and are large so there is always enough space to find a peaceful spot. Watersports are very popular here, and windsurfers love the off-shore winds during the summer months.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants, but many are tailored towards the German market
