Cycling in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is certainly a cycle-friendly hub. A stay in the island’s major resorts is seriously appealing, and that’s without mentioning the waterparks, pristine coastlines and zoos you can enjoy when you’re taking a break. Get on your bike and explore!

Sand between your toes

Take time to discover Corralejo and visit the rolling sand dunes that make up its Natural Park. This resort’s also an excellent place to enjoy live music. Further south, Costa Calma’s a big hit with windsurfing crowds, so don’t miss a wave.

Short and speedy routes

Overlooking Lanzarote on the island’s northern-most tip, Corralejo is Fuerteventura’s most popular resort. Despite the backdrop of volcanic peaks, many routes from the resort encompass flat, clear roads. Offering short bursts of fun, they’re ideal for beginners and budding professionals.

Windy weather

Fuerteventura’s well known for its strong winds. Although they can sometimes make things a little more difficult, they’re usually a great addition when you’re cycling and provide a constant cool breeze! As with all other Canary Islands, Fuerteventura still remains bright, warm and sunny in every season, too.

The Route: This long route runs nearly the entire length of the island’s east coast.
