Tips

The beaches in Fuerteventura are generally considered to be the best in the Canaries and coupled together with its warm climate, makes the island a beach holiday heavyweight.  But do not just think that beaches are all this wonderful island has to offer; on the contrary, the resorts of Costa Caleta, Corralejo and the capital Puerto del Rosario offering plenty of options in terms of nightlife and family fun.

 

Fuerteventura has built its reputation as being a bit more laid back than the more in-your-face islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, so if you want to get away from life’s troubles, this island is a stand out option.

 

Best Beaches

 

  • Beaches here are rugged, unspoilt and somewhat wild. One of the prime examples is the beach at El Cotillo which is growing in popularity whilst retaining its quaint and traditional feel. Rugged coastlines is a characteristic of the north of the island and thanks to the many windswept beaches this is the best place to go for windsurfing

 

  • Head south if you want traditional beauty as opposed to rugged coasts. Playa de Mattoral on the Jandia peninsular puts most others in the shade in terms of sheer beauty. Playa de Sotavento has white sand and hosts the World Windsurfing Championships too which is well worth a watch every July

 

  • The sand dunes of Corralejo are a must see and the beach here is a real favourite with families who can take advantage of the many facilities located nearby

 

Sample Spanish Life

 

  • With large parts of the island remaining protected from development, there is the potential to sample local life and nowhere is better to do this than at Jandia market, where shoppers have the opportunity to find something to treat themselves or to buy a souvenir for family members back home

 

  • The capital Puerto del Rosario is the place to go if you want to sample local tapas and wine. There are plenty of restaurant and bars to choose from, many of which will be full of locals as opposed to too many tourists so you will get a real local vibe

 

  • Visit the island during Easter when the local carnivals are underway. They are loud, colourful and full of fun

 

Chilled Out Evenings

 

  • For the most action, head to Puerto del Rosario or Corralejo for late night bars and clubs going on well into the early hours

 

  • If you want something a little quieter, head to Caleta De Fuste where there are numerous family friendly and romantic restaurants where diners can unwind with a bottle and seafood meal under the stars

 

  • For a Spanish experience, take a trip to Costa Calma where tapas bars and restaurants litter the streets. You can even listen to some local music in one of the bars if you so wish

Hints & Tips

  • The horseshoe shaped bay of Costa Caleta is a popular resort which is favoured by families attracted by its calm clear waters

 

  • Hit Las Rotondas, a huge shopping complex in Puerto del Rosario. It has transformed Fuerteventura into a shoppers paradise with designer and High Street brands offering some great deals all year round

 

  • Fuerteventura is the capital of water sports so give it a go if you dare! If you have never hired a jet ski or wind surfed, this is the place to do it

Fuerteventura Holiday Hot Spots

  • El Cotillo

    Whilst other resorts on Fuerteventura may enjoy more of an established reputation, El Cotillo is quickly catching them up as people begin to realise this is an unspoiled resort with some of the best beaches on the whole island.

  • Gran Canaria

    Gran Canaria is a traditional Spanish gem of an island. The historical vibe results in the island feeling a little bit like you are deserted in the middle of nowhere. Gran Canaria has mountains, sand dunes, unspoilt beaches, parks, forests and culture in abundance.
