Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the hidden gem of the canary islands with stretches of crystal clear waters and pure white sand beaches to rival ones found in the caribbean. It lies just to the south of Lanzarote, and is close to the equator, hence the fantastic holiday weather.

Fuerteventura airport is a few miles south of the island's capital Puerto Del Rosario, and a few miles north of Caleta de Fuste, in the northern half of the Fuerteventura.

The north of the island is where most of the English-speaking tourists are to be found, and the main resorts in this part of the island are Caleta de Fuste and Corralejo. The transfer time between the airport and Caleta de Fuste is around 15 minutes, and to Coraralejo is about 40 minutes.

Fuerteventura attracts visitors that are generally interested in a quiet relaxing holiday, and it lacks the crowds of drunken youths that are to be found in some of the busy resorts on other islands. The scenery is spectacular with volcanos, mountain ranges, quaint canarian villages, great food and drink, and outstanding beaches. There are many water sport and diving schools. Windsurfing and waterskiing are particularly popular. There are also many Catamaran and deep sea fishing excursions available.

Fuerteventura has a sub tropical climate and is on the same latitude as Florida. The temperatures during the day never drop below 22 degrees all year round and in summer the cooling breeze is very welcoming .
