For many visitors, Fuerteventura holidays are all about the beach. But don’t just ‘settle’ for lazy days by the coast. The second-largest Canary Island is also one of the archipelago’s least developed, and it’s ripe for exploration. A spectacular landscape and unique culture are waiting to be discovered.
Whether you’re looking for large family-friendly beaches with rows of sun-loungers and restaurants, or impossibly idyllic deserted stretches of sand with mountain backdrops, days by the coast are at the front and centre of any holiday to Fuerteventura. If you’re at a beach where the water’s safe, jump in – the ocean is pleasant year-round.
The warm sea is one reason the island is a haven for watersports. The other is the regular winds that gave Fuerteventura (meaning “strong wind”) its name. The intense gusts are ideal for powering wind and kite surfers, and wave surfing is also popular thanks to those big Atlantic waves.
The natural wonders continue away from the coast. Volcanic landscapes and remote islands made Fuerteventura a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Swap your flip-flops for hiking boots to discover sand dunes in a desert, a tiny island rich in flora and fauna, and reddish landscapes that could be from Mars.
Fuerteventura’s lack of development means you can still find windswept villages with chilled-out charm, such as the island’s 15th-century former capital, Betancuria. The authentic feeling continues in the island’s cuisine, with dishes like roast kid and “old clothes”, a stew that tastes better than it sounds. The renowned goat’s cheese, queso majorero, is a must try.
When the sun goes down, one of Fuerteventura’s best sights is its star-filled skies. Head to one of the observation points to stargaze. You’ll have some of the best views in Europe of the Milky Way and stars twinkling brighter than you’ve ever seen them.
