Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura holidays

Fuerteventura’s famed for its dreamy line-up of Caribbean-esque beaches, wonderful water sports and relaxed seaside resorts, so it’s set to impress on the R&R front. And the resorts range from go-slow to get-up-and-go. By day, firm favourites Corralejo and Caleta De Fuste are two top choices for old-fashioned family fun, thanks to their mix of striking sands and attractions galore. By night, it’s all about the al fresco restaurants and live shows. Down in Jandia, we’re talking total tranquillity with an upmarket twist – not to mention some of the island’s most knockout beaches, best waves and finest seafood.

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. Did we mention the hiking trails? There are lots of flat routes winding around the island!

Resorts for all ages

Fuerteventura’s a hive of activity and great weather all year means the resorts are always super lively. Restaurants and bars cater 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 two must-visits. Rent a board from one of the water sports centres and get ready to master the waves. Stick around for sunset at one of the on-the-sand bars and you’ll be treated to epic pink-tinged views.

Sights

Fuerteventura’s volcanic landscape makes it a natural wonder, studded with mountains and epic reserves. Just off the coast of Corralejo is Lobos Island.
