Fuerteventura at a Glance

Visiting Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and enjoys a widely varied landscape – from white sandy shores to black beaches, extinct volcanoes to rolling dunes and oceans teeming with wildlife. Get revved up and explore on a 4x4, or relax into a laidback Spanish pace and stroll through Corralejo’s protected National Park.

Feel Fuerteventura

Known as ‘the windy island’, you will certainly feel the wind in your sails here. Fuerteventura is the ultimate place to try out windsurfing across the turquoise ocean, or maybe you’ll simply wave from the comfort of the island’s white sandy shores. 

Taste Fuerteventura

Taste Fuerteventura

An island with an Atlantic coastline this epic means one thing... seafood! And what a delight it is. For the perfect flakes of fish and seafood head to the humble town of Gran Tarajal and coastal villages where you’ll find dishes as fresh as they get. Or if you’re just after a quick snack with your ice-cold beverage then there are tons of tapas bars around the island. And don’t leave until you have tried the island’s famous goat’s cheese.

Explore Fuerteventura

Even before the sun rises over Fuerteventura the coast is alive with fishermen, and when the sun gets his hat on the waters swarm with people riding the waves on surfboards, jet skis and sail boats. Drift back to dry land and you’ll discover 340 km of stunning beaches to bury your toes in. Sunset is your time to take in the island’s warm pinky tones from one of the restaurants lining the shore or bustling bars that call your name.
