Fuerteventura

Travel Guide
Corralejo Beach featuring general coastal views, swimming and mountains

Windsurf on the gurus' favourite island and discover Fuerteventura's white sandy beaches, explore Puerto del Rosario and sample Majorero cheese.

Dive into the turquoise waters of this idyllic island, let yourself be caressed by the sea breeze and explore its volcanic landscape. Get active on its beaches, witness the story of a transatlantic ship that ran aground and watch the impressive sunsets from its view points. The combination of flight + hotel to Fuerteventura is the easiest way to spend a few marvellous days on this privileged island.

Sports lovers will have a ball on this island that combines desert and sea. There are more than 90 miles of beaches to surf, windsurf or kitesurf, as well as to explore underwater.

Fuerteventura holidays are always packed with adventure: hire a car to travel the 60 square miles of the second-largest island in the Canarian archipelago and discover the best corners of the six municipalities: Puerto del Rosario, Betancuria, Antigua, Tuineje, Pájara and La Oliva.

Explore the Corralejo Nature Reserve with its 2,600 hectares of white sandy dunes beside the bluest of seas. From Corralejo, you can make out Islote de Lobos and catch a glimpse of the volcanoes of Lanzarote in the distance. As the sun drops, make sure to arrive on time to see the sun set at Playa de Cofete in the south of the island.

Stroll through the main square of Betancuria and visit the Ajuy caves, in Pájara. Head towards Antigua and take a break in the capital, Puerto del Rosario. Enjoy a seaside meal at Caleta de Fuste, a tourist spot that still holds that Canarian charm, and sample Majorero Denomination of Origin cheese.

Don't miss the views from Mirador de Morro Velosa, from where you can make out the north half of the island, and stop off to discover the wreck of the American Star transatlantic liner, which ran aground in 1994.

Choose from one of our low-cost holidays to Fuerteventura and have an unforgettable few days of sun, beach and adventure. To get to the island, fly to the island's airport, only 3 miles from the capital. You can also get there by boat and ferry from neighbouring islands.

The saying goes that you cry when you reach Fuerteventura and cry again when you leave, so let the wind carry away your sorrows and spread your laughter in an echo as never-ending as Fuerteventura's eternal summer.

Spain's Canary Islands are some of the best destinations in the world for a beach holiday. If you like beach holidays in Fuerteventura then you're sure to love our cheap beach holidays to Gran Canaria or our Tenerife beach holidays. Book with Expedia and find out why for yourself.
