Fuerteventura Holiday Guide

Fuerteventura one of the the largest of the Canary Islands, located just west of Morocco, and is well known for incredible beaches and excellent surfing. Enjoy the pleasant ocean breeze and relax on pristine stretches of white sand on this island of scenic parks and dunes. Visit the town of Corralejo, with its nature reserves and selection of water sports, ranging from diving to kite surfing.

To many, Fuerteventura is known as “the island of eternal spring” in recognition of its persistently pleasant climate year-round. It enjoys little to no rain in the summer, with only a few wet days between October and March.

Travel to Corralejo, appreciate its charming streets and alleys and dine in its delectable restaurants and cafés. Feed that shopaholic in you and pick up a souvenir a one of the many boutique shops. Just outside the town centre you’ll find miles of sand dunes in the Corralejo National Park. Stroll across the sand at your leisure, enjoy the scenery and forget the worries back home.

When you really feel like it’s time to chill, get yourself a lounger and sunbathe on Corralejo Beach. Or choose from the countess other beaches on the island, such as Cotillo Beach and Sotavento de Jania Beach. These serene beaches, with their sapphire blue seas, have very few buildings to interfere with nature on the great, sprawling areas of sand.

The island’s name developed from the Spanish term for “strong winds,” which explains its pull for windsurfers. Take your board out on the rough water and enjoy the view of the island’s rugged coastline.

For a change of scenery, head to Ajuy Beach, with its black sand formed from a volcanic eruption. Its yellow rocks combine well with the blue sea and sky for otherworldly photo opportunities. Explore caves and beautiful rock formations next to the beach.

The local language is Spanish, dating back to the island’s colonization many centuries ago. English is also widely spoken around the resorts and attractions.

To reach the island, get a flight to Fuerteventura Airport in the El Matorral area on the east coast. Take a shuttle bus from the airport to your desired destination. Corralejo is 24 miles (39 kilometers) north, which will take about 30 minutes in a taxi.

Choose Fuerteventura for a relaxing holiday with the family on white, sandy beaches surrounded by picturesque sand dunes and parks.
