A Fuerteventura Holiday for Beach Lovers
The second largest of the Canary Islands a holiday in Fuerteventura guarantees gorgeous sunny weather, and miles of white sandy beaches. It’s the perfect destination for water sports like kite surfing and windsurfing, but if you’d rather let others do the wave breaking, a holiday to Fuerteventura is also great for simply relaxing on the beach. Besides, a lively nightlife means that you can always dance off any extra calories consumed or make up for the lack of exercise at the many bars and clubs on offer.
Soak up the sun in volcanic Fuerteventura
The beautiful beaches inevitably attract many tourists, but the good news about Fuerteventura holidays is that there’s plenty of sand and turquoise water to go around. In fact, there are so many beaches you may find it hard to choose. In the north, the breezy El Cotillo is much loved by surfers, and is particularly well-known for its windsurfers and kite surfers. The beaches of Jandia, popular for scuba diving, are also fantastic for a water sport holiday in Fuerteventura. For bathing, and for naturist-free beaches, you can try those around the town centre of the popular resort of Corralejo, or visit the Caleta De Fuste in the east coast of Fuerteventura. If you’re up for the nudist thing, Costa Calma may have the beach for you. Of course, the beaches are free, so a holiday in Fuerteventura can cost you as much as you like.

Fuerteventura’s incredible volcanic history stretches back millions of years, and you’ll see the evidence in the rugged, rocky coastlines and authentic, breath taking views of ancient volcanoes. If you want to explore further on your holiday to Fuerteventura, a 10 minute ferry ride from Corralejo takes you to the small volcanic island of Lobos, where you can explore the desert on specially made paths through the nature reserve.
You can enjoy various cuisines during your holiday in Fuerteventura, but as you’d expect from a seaside resort, the island is paradise for seafood lovers. A less obvious but equally delicious local specialty is Queso Majorero, a traditional cheese made of milk from the many, and we mean many, local goats you’ll see during your Fuerteventura holiday. Food is cheap, so you can indulge in gorgeous delicacies without eating up your budget.
There’s nothing like sitting down for a cold cocktail after a good day out on the beach. If you want to party on your Fuerteventura holiday, central Corralejo is the place for dancing and island bar hopping. It’s popular amongst tourists and locals alike, so whether you prefer a pint at a British pub or to listen to authentic Spanish music at an open air bar, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
