Holidays to Fuerteventura are first and foremost about the beaches, and once you see them you’ll understand why – they’re the best in the Canaries.
With more than 150 swathes of sand to its name, holidays to Fuerteventura, in the Canary Islands, are all about the beach. Its coast morphs from the empty sweeps at Cofete to the busy, bar-lined stretches in Jandia. Then there’s the Parque Natural de Corralejo to think about. Unravelling along the coast for 10 kilometres, this national park is a huge expanse of rolling sand dunes.
The big resorts
Corralejo, the most popular town on the island, balances old and new. Visit while on holiday to Fuerteventura and you’ll find traditional tapas bars in the old town and karaoke bars in the resort centre. Further down the coast, Costa Caleta is a family favourite, with watersports and international restaurants easy to come by. The Jandia peninsula in the south, meanwhile, teams up national park-protected beaches with duty-free shopping complexes and a clutch of cocktail bars.
Fuerteventura’s coastline gives the green light to some of the best watersports in Spain. Kite surfing is big business here. And Playa de Sotavento, on the island’s south coast, has cornered the market for windsurfing. Head here in July mean you’ll catch the World Championships.
Villages untouched by time
If you can drag yourself away from the shoreline during your Fuerteventura holiday, the interior is well worth exploring. Wind-whipped lava fields and valleys of euphorbia give way to centuries-old villages that have missed the march of mass tourism.
