Fuerteventura

Over 150 soft golden sandy beaches

With a beautiful coastline of over 150 sandy beaches Fuerteventura is the second largest island in the Canary Islands.  The interior has extinct volcanoes, traditional villages and old fashioned windmills.  The closest Canary island to the African continent, Fuerteventura has nearly constant sunshine and excellent weather conditions for both windsurfing and surfing.  Highlights include:

  • The Dunes Nature Reserve with a 10 km stretch of desert like sand dunes.
  • 4 km from the Dunes Nature Reserve is Corralejo an excellent resort for windsurfing, surfing and a host of other watersports. It also has a waterpark.  
  • The Jandia Peninsula in the south has a series of beach resorts varying from the tranquil Playa Barca to the bustling Morro Jable.

  • Isla de los Lobos is a tiny island offering clear waters for diving, snorkelling and sport fishing.

Walking

With a low lying semi-desert landscape very different to other Canary islands, Fuerteventura nevertheless has over 250 km of marked hiking trails which include volcanic paths, coastal trails and hikes to stunning view points.  A decent map showing walking trails is available together with a walking guidebook.
