’Break the mould’ with a weekend in Fuerteventura
Table of contents
Long sandy beaches, year-round sunshine, mountainous terrain, thrilling water sports, a rich heritage and luxury resorts are all awaiting you on a Fuerteventura weekend break.
Fuerteventura is regarded by many as the “hidden gem” of the Canary Islands, despite being the second largest after Tenerife. Its proximity to the North West African coast, volcanic landscape and magical sand dunes of Corralejo Natural Park make it an exotic getaway within easy reach, which is why Fuerteventura weekend breaks are becoming increasing popular amongst UK holidaymakers. From white sand beaches to 200 year old flour-producing windmills, it is an unforgettable destination with something for everyone.
Fuerteventura (translated as “strong winds”) benefits from the combination of year-round sunshine and high temperatures that are made bearable by cooling breezes, making it the perfect destination for a relaxing weekend break on the beach or hiking in the mountains. However, if relaxation is the last thing you’re looking for from your weekend in Fuerteventura, the wind also creates the perfect conditions for exciting water sports like wind surfing. In fact, the island attracts surfing fanatics from all over the world, who know it as the “Hawaii of Europe”. Various surf schools offer courses and day trips around the East Coast for surfers of all abilities.
If you’d rather spectate than participate, head to the rustic sandy planes of Playa De Sotavento on the south coast near Jandia, where the Windsurfing World Championships are held, to watch the professionals in action.
For those looking to really get away from it all, a boat trip from the resort of Corralejo to the island of Los Lobos is a must-do during weekends in Fuerteventura. An almost deserted island, Los Lobos offers a stunning perspective of the island and neighbouring Lanzarote from a secluded haven. This is the perfect destination for a lazy Sunday walk.
