Fuerteventura – Canary Islands

Fuerteventura is in the Canary Islands and measures 210 kilometres from one end to the other. It is outstanding for its magnificent white sand beaches and for the bright sun that shines all year round.

It is an essential destination for windsurfing and scuba diving lovers. Here you will find unforgettable spots. There are more than 150 beaches in the north and south of the island, spread over 340 kilometres of coastline.

Meanwhile, on the east coast you will find cliffs and small, hidden coves.

Their shallow, crystal clear waters are ideal for watersports: sailing, water skiing, surfing, fishing… and, above all, windsurfing: the island now has an important place on the windsurfing World Cup circuit.

There is a long list of beaches where you can practise this sport: Corralejo, Cotillo, Jandía, Caleta de Fuste, Cofete…

This is also the case for scuba diving. Fuerteventura is an ideal destination for diving fans, thanks to the crevices, caves, tunnels, overhangs and rock formations to be found on its ocean beds.

Its excellent climate, sandy beaches with dunes, stunning natural beauty and modern infrastructure make Fuerteventura a privileged destination for tourists.

A good way to get to know the island’s most hidden spots is to explore the tracks and trails that will lead you to areas of unspoilt countryside. This is the case of Tindaya Mountain and the Betancuria Nature Reserve, the island’s largest area of protected countryside.

Fuerteventura airport is five kilometres from Puerto del Rosario, with services by airlines from many different countries. The island also has scheduled boat and ferry services to the rest of the archipelago, departing from Puerto del Rosario, La Oliva and Pájara.

A place to relax. A place to practice sport. A destination for the whole family. These are all part of Fuerteventura, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve island together with the surrounding sea. A dream island where you can enjoy over 150 kilometres of beaches, clear waters, exotic landscapes and most of all, a mild climate with temperatures around 25 degrees centigrade all year long. Don’t you wish you were here?

Long sweeps of white or black sand, unspoilt coves, vast expanses of dunes… All lapped by seas so crystal clear you can see the sea floor while you swim. Good examples are the beaches of Morro Jable, Costa Calma and Caleta de Fuste, and the secluded spots on Isla de Lobos just a couple of kilometres off the coast of Fuerteventura, which can be visited by frequent boat trips.

Water sports and sailing In Fuerteventura, two sports stand out far above the rest: windsurfing and scuba diving. Its coastline is known for its winds and waves by windsurfers around the world, and the island has become established as a key venue on the World Cup circuit, held on beaches such as Sotavento.

The crystal clear waters of Fuerteventura make this the ideal place for scuba diving, with no need to dive deep, as you’ll find brightly-coloured fish practically up to the seashore. And you don’t have to worry about bringing your own kit, as there are companies on the island that will provide you with everything you need.Other options for having a great time with sport include sailing, fishing, surfing and waterskiing.

Camel rides Further inland, Fuerteventura has enormous natural wealth that is worth taking a trip to see – for example, by camel ride. You’ll pass through unique landscapes of lush vegetation and volcanic earth. Don’t miss Mount Tindaya or the Corralejo and Jandía Natural Parks. Travelling with children?

In addition to the camel-riding experience, they will enjoy flying kites on the beaches of Fuerteventura.How to get there… Fuerteventura’s international airport has flights to major cities all over Europe. Also, several airlines and frequent ferry lines connect it with the rest of the Canary Islands, so it takes just 25 minutes to reach Lanzarote, for example, another UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Will you settle for only imagining it?
