Things to see
Fuerteventura is barely 100km from the African mainland, which is reflected in its balmy year-round weather. Second only in size to Tenerife among the Canary Islands, holidays to Fuerteventura are ideal if you like a slow-paced retreat or a beach break filled with family fun. With its balmy temperatures, white-sand beaches, cozy coves and avenues for watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and waterskiing, Fuerteventura holidays offer fun and relaxation. Beyond the beaches, the island is also pretty scenic with windmills, tiny cottages and dense forests.
Linger on the Beaches
Fuerteventura is home to Southern Europe’s most impressive beaches and with rolling sands blown in from Sahara, towel space is not going to be a problem. You'll always find a place to bronze, sway in a hammock, explore the solitary coves or take a dip in clear blue warm waters. The golden sands of Corralejo and El Cortillo in the north and Jandia in the south are the most visited by tourists, it's also worth noting that some of these strips also have nudist beaches.
When it comes to gastronomical delights, Fuerteventura is known for its delicious gourmet cheese which is sourced from Majorero mountain goats that roam the island. In fact, the cheese has won several international awards for its taste and texture. Depending on its freshness or curing, the cheese can be categorized as Fresco, Curado or Semi-Curado. The latter two have strong flavours and are matured between 20 to 90 days. You can also try out the goat milk liqueur while you're here!
Catch a Wave in the Canary Islands
All of the Canary Islands are hotbeds of watersports and breezy Fuerteventura is no different. In fact, the island is considered a surfer’s paradise, and a favourite among windsurfers and kite-boarders. Corralejo beckons with its high surf, but the more adventurous head to El Cortillo where the breaks and winds are more challenging. With clear warm waters, snorkeling to see the stunning marine life is a good idea.
The island has scenic mountain treks and rural roads that are best explored on a 4x4 SUV. Drive down the Villaverde in the south of Corralejo through a desert till you reach the sea. You can have magnificent views of the sea and the neighbouring isle of Lanzarote. Head to la Oliva for a close up view of a volcano then to Tindaya village, at the footstep of a mountain. You can choose to end the excursion at the fabulous beaches of Cotillo or Jandia.
