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.

 Say Cheese!

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.

Go Off-Roading

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.

Dip into Canarian Culture

 

Dip into Canarian Culture

If you can tear yourself away from the sun-drenched beaches, then head further inland to explore some of the traditional Canarian villages. A visit to the old capital of Fuerteventura, Betancuria, is an ideal way to get a burst of history and culture in one. The traditional town has been incredibly well preserved and remains immaculate.

 
Taste The Canaries

 

Taste The Canaries

Fuerteventura produces its own unique cheese called Majorero. It is made from the milk of the goats that famously roam the island and you may find yourself wanting to take it all home with you. The goats themselves can also be found in many traditional Canarian dishes, such as goat stew. Fuerteventura's fresh seafood is not to be missed either.

 
Explore Volcanic Wonders

 

Explore Volcanic Wonders

The volcanic island of Fuerteventura is one of the few places where you can see hot rocks, geysers, craters and vast lava fields. With such a unique landscape, it’s no wonder there are a host of excursions and tours by foot, bike, camel or quad bike enabling visitors to experience the stunning natural surroundings. El Golfo - known as the Green Lagoon - will amaze you with its striking green tint, a phenomenon caused by oxidation in the rocks.

 
Have a Pirate Adventure

 

Have a Pirate Adventure

Pick up your parrot and hop aboard The Pedra Sartaña, a Spanish schooner that’s ready to sail the seven seas. Equipped with pirateworthy woodwork, barrels and high masts towering above, the schooner will make for a spectacular day out where the kids can take part in a host of fun activities including treasure hunts, games and learning to hoist the sails. Parents can choose to chill on deck or walk the plank and go for a dip in the warm waters!

 
Visit the Oasis Park

 

Visit the Oasis Park

Oasis Park faithfully recreates natural habitats for a range of reptiles, birds and mammals. The park houses over 3,000 animals and includes the animal park, an African savannah, botanical gardens and reptile centre. Visitors can see giraffes, hippos, sea lions and more. If you fancy a closer look, head up to the viewing platform where you can see the giraffes at eye level and don’t forget to check out the park’s reptile, sea lion, parrot and bird of prey shows.

 
Mountain Bike Fun

 

 

Mountain Bike Fun

If you’re fed up of exploring Fuerteventura by foot, go one step further and hire out a bike to experience some of the best parts of the island. Put your fitness levels to the test and peddle out to calming rivers, coast along craters and make your way up mountains where you’ll discover more of the island’s magical sights.
