Last minute Fuerteventura deals for year-round sunshine
Sun, surf and sand
Literally meaning “strong fortune,” Fuerteventura is the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, situated off the north-west coast of Africa. With over 200 sunshine hours a month, it is best known for its stunning beaches. The strong swells of the Atlantic ocean make this island a surfer’s paradise, especially in areas such as El Cotillo and Corralejo on the more exposed northern and western coasts. Corralejo is also famous for its extensive sand dunes, where visitors can explore by sand buggies, quadbikes or even 4x4s. The clear turquoise waters of the island’s other coasts lend themselves perfectly to windsurfing, sailing, diving and fishing.
For those who desire a more leisurely holiday, beaches to the south and east of the island are calmer and offer more protection from the Atlantic Ocean’s strong swells. The Jandía peninsula is one of the most popular areas, famous for its striking white beaches such as Playa de Costa Calma, Playa de Cofete and Morro Jable. For something truly unique, visit La Concha, a cove in the shape of a half-moon that is a paradise for divers thanks to the natural lava reef that houses many rare sea creatures. Whatever your taste in beaches, with over 150km of coastline, there is something for everyone on Fuerteventura.
A unique environment
The fun doesn’t stop further inland, however. Named as a UNESCO biosphere reserve, the island’s sparsely-populated interior is home to a variety of rare flora and fauna, as well as important archaeological sites. Hiking, mountain biking and horse-trekking offer excellent ways to get off the beaten path, especially in the well-preserved national parks.
Golf is another popular pastime year-round on Fuerteventura, and there are numerous golf courses that boast high-class facilities set among scenic surroundings. If all this activity gets too strenuous, the island is home to a number of luxury spas that offer everything from state-of-the-art pampering to relaxing yoga retreats.
Explore urban delights
In addition to its beautiful countryside, the towns of Fuerteventura are well worth a visit, boasting handmade crafts, local delicacies and fascinating attractions. The capital city, Puerto del Rosario, is home to a captivating sculpture park, while the town of Antigua is a centre for traditional handicrafts, and Corralejo is known for its vibrant nightlife.
