Beaches, beaches, and more beaches

Fuerteventura’s known as the beach capital of the Canary Islands – and it’s no wonder, with long stretches of fine sands. Don’t miss the awesome natural surroundings of Corralejo either – rolling dunes give way to clear blue waters and, from the water’s edge, you can spy Lanzarote in the distance.

Resorts for all ages

The island is a hive of activity, and great weather all year means the resorts are always super lively. Restaurants and bars catered for families, while clubs in most of the towns keep night owls happy. If you’re a keen shopper, hit the high-street stores, or bazaars to pick up little souvenirs.

Surf’s up

Every year, surfers flock to Fuerteventura for some of the best waves in the world, with Corralejo and El Cotillo proving particularly popular. Bring your board or rent one from one of the water sports centres and get ready to carve. You’ll also have kitesurfing, windsurfing and diving on offer.
