Introducing holidays to Fuerteventura
Picking a holiday destination that is fun for all the family is no mean feat. Often you are hard pushed to find a destination that caters to all tastes and one member of the family may end up feeling short changed. Fuerteventura is different. With over 150 beaches, spectacular sand dunes, wind surfing galore and more than an unbelievable 3, 000 hours (yes you did read that right) of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the perfect destination for all the family.
So what is it about Fuerteventura that sets it apart from other holiday destinations? For one it has a stunning location. Located amongst the beautiful Canary Islands Fuerteventura is the perfect middle ground for beach bums and holiday adventurers alike. The coast line is beautiful and is perfect for exploring. The beach is the perfect location for avid water sports fans and is an excellent place to brush up on your surf boarding skills.
Life’s a Beach
Here at Fuerteventura, life really is a beach. If you like being right in the thick of it then you can stay in one of the island’s all-inclusive hotels in a bustling beach resort. What better way to wake up then to head straight for the beach for some early morning rays? Along the North coast lies Corralejo that has not only a beach but a lovely little authentic Spanish town to explore. This is the perfect place to enjoy an ice cold beer by the beach hut and then enjoy an afternoon siesta on the sun lounger. After all, when in Spain do as the Spanish do! If sunbathing alone simply won’t do, then fear not, there is a beach for you. The Playa de Sotavento is the perfect introduction to the islands vibrant water sports scene. You’ll be a surfing pro in no time.
Fuerteventura is a popular holiday destination and is often a hub of activity. If you are wanting to avoid the crowds, then we suggest you head to the more secluded Jandia on the southern coast. Jandia offers a beautiful and quieter retreat that is perfect for families. Relaxation is the name of the game down on the southern coast and Jandia will allow you to holiday at your own pace, leaving room for plenty of judgement free siestas. Other firm family favourites are the Costa Calma, or the Caleta de Fuste which has beautiful secret coves and coastal walks, as well as a golf course.
Those of you with adventure on the brain need not fear, as Fuerteventura is a water sporting haven. Wind surfing and kite surfing are the most popular sports here and there are a number of surfing schools located around the beach to help you become a pro on the waves in no time. If you’re in need of a little motivation, The World Wind Surfing Championship is held here every July. Take some tips from the pros as they battle it out on the waves.
Days packed full of beaching activities followed by nights enjoying the bustling beach nightlife are all waiting for you in Fuerteventura. Let the adventure begin!
