Fabulous Fuerteventura

Who would have thought that one day we would actually agree with Belinda Carlisle? No. Really. Heaven is a place on earth.

Without doubt one of the most beautiful of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura’s only drawback is that its name is a little tricky to type at speed. With over 150 beaches, complete with dunes and ‘Oh my God!’ stretches of water, this is the perfect place to relax, explore, eat, drink or just watch as the locals go about their days.

Then when you’re done surfing, or sunbathing or soaking up everything else on offer, head off to explore the suburbs of Antigua, Betancuria, La Oliva, Pájara, Puerto del Rosario and Tuineje to find something new to entice and excite everywhere you step. That’s the beauty of the place. Well, that and the sheer beauty of the place!

Fuerteventura’s Top 10

10. Parque Natural de Betancuria Simply adorable. Mountains, parks, cottages and general charm.

5. Isla de Lobos Take the El Majorero for a day trip or mini-cruise.

9. Casa Museo de Betancuria Even if you’re not into Guanche artefacts (and who isn't?), you’ll still love the collection here.

4. Playa del Mattoral More water sports around this often deserted and under-rated natural beauty.

8. Museo de Arte Sacro Paintings, silverware and general treasures. Get a combined pass for this and the Santa Maria.

3. Museo Artesania Museum and crafts! Take Granny. But don’t give her too much of the yummy local cheese or booze!

7. Iglesia de Santa María Arrr, me hearties! Watch your back for pirates in this renovated Gothic mansion.

2. Casa Museo de Unamuno It’s like going over to your mate’s house. If your mate is a famous philosopher and speaks Spanish.

6. Castillo del Tostón Climb right to the top to see the best views of the surrounding beaches, before taking part in the sight and sound show.

1. Parque Natural de Corralejo Windsurf or kiteboard your way up the 10km of perfect dunes and coastline. Bonus features include hunks in trunks and babes in bikinis.

Fuerteventura Events

The skies over Dunas de Corralejo Natural Park come alive in November during the annual Kite Festival.

When To Go

Basically, we’re glad to tell you – it’s always delightful! It’s warm and sunny for around 300 days in a year. Bliss!

Fuerteventura experiences the least rainfall of all the other Canary Islands, while the summer months of July, August and September are the hottest, with temperatures averaging 29°C (84°F)

For the rest of the year, it’s still very pleasant, only dropping to around 15°C (59°F) in January and February.

Getting Around

Hiring a car is the best way to discover the more remote areas. It’s not too expensive, especially if you’re in a group and are not planning to dent the bonnet!

The bus lines from Puerto del Rosalio (via airport) to Correlejo, Caleta de Fuste, Morro del Jable and Cotillo are cheap and very reliable. The buses also make it easy to get from Correlejo to the brilliant southern sand-dune beaches.

General Information

As a member of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura belongs to an exclusive club. Few resort archipelagos in the world can compete head to head with the Spanish island chain off the west coast of Africa. Fuerteventura may be second in size in the Canary Islands, behind busy Tenerife, but is no small fry when it comes to vacation appeal. At 100 km long and 30 km wide, the Atlantic Ocean island offers many sweet escapes under the hot sun. Known as the "Island of Eternal Spring", the mercury rarely dips below 15°C on Fuerteventura and the island as a whole boasts over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year. No small wonder then that as of 1965, resorts have sprung up all along the pristine coastline, from Corralejo in the north, with over 11 km of fine sand, to Cofete in the southwest, with believe it or not, 35 km of beautiful beach.
