If you're looking for sun, sea and sand, there are few holiday destinations better than Fuerteventura. The oldest and second-largest Canary Island, Fuerteventura boasts over 150km of sandy coastline and sees 3,000 hours of sunshine every year. Pleasantly warm all year round, the island's idyllic beaches are ideal for summer travellers looking to avoid scorching weather as well as those in search of winter sun. While the white and golden sands are a great place to unwind, Fuerteventura offers much more than just relaxation. Holiday goers can combine sunbathing with boutique shopping, bustling nightlife, sightseeing and a wide array of watersports. Though the tourism industry only hit Fuerteventura in the 1960s, there are already numerous hotels to choose from across several resorts from the quiet Costa Calma to exciting Corralejo. There's something for everyone on this subtropical island, with enough activities for every member of your holiday party to create a unique experience. A trip to Fuerteventura is sure to be one you'll all remember for years to come.
Though it's hard to tire of relaxing on Fuerteventura's sands, there are plenty of activities to enjoy when you're done sunbathing. If you're a thrill-seeker, don't hesitate to try out diving or surfing. If you'd rather enjoy the water in a more relaxing way, a sailing tour will give you a unique view of the island. When the sun goes down, you can take a bus or a taxi to a nightclub or one of Fuerteventura's top-quality restaurants.
Fuerteventura's cuisine is built around fresh seafood from the surrounding waters as well as the island's speciality: goat's cheese, a.k.a. queso majorero. Whether you're a fan of fish, steak, or something else altogether, there are plenty of restaurants to suit every taste.
