A wish? Fuerteventura
A place to relax. A place to practice sport. A destination for the whole family. Fuerteventura is all of that. A wishful island on which you will enjoy over 150 kilometres of beaches, clear waters, exotic landscapes and more importantly, a mild climate that stays around 25 degrees Centigrade all year long. Isn't it the place you want to be?
What did the pictures accompanying this pamphlet arise in you? Peace, well-being, pleasure? Then imagine experiencing it in person. Here we help you to get an idea, but just know that this is only a small taste of what awaits you in Fuerteventura, in the Canary Islands.
Rest with sea views
Fuerteventura has 340 kilometres of coastline with beaches to suit everyone. Long beaches with white or black sand, unspoilt coves, vast expanses of sand dunes… And all lapped by crystal clear waters which enable you to see the sea bottom while you swim. Good examples are the beaches of Morro Jable, Costa Calma, Caleta de Fuste, or secluded spots on the Isla de Lobos just a couple of kilometres off the coast of Fuerteventura, which can be visited by frequent boat trips.
Water and wind sports
In Fuerteventura, two sports stand out far above the rest: windsurfing and scuba-diving. Its coastline is known by international windsurfers throughout the world thanks to its winds and waves, and the island has become established as a key venue on the World Cup circuit, held on beaches such as Sotavento. The crystal clear waters of Fuerteventura make this the ideal place for scuba-diving, with no need to dive deep, as you'll find brightly-coloured fish practically up to the seashore. And you don't have to worry about bringing your own kit, as there are companies on the island which will provide you with everything you need.
Other options for having a great time with sport include sailing, fishing, surfing and waterskiing. If you like golf, the island also offers you the possibility to practice your swing amongst amazing landscapes on courses such as those of the Salinas de Antiguo Golf Club and the Fuerteventura Golf Club.
Further inland, Fuerteventura possesses an enormous natural wealth that we propose you see – for example, by camel ride. You will pass through unique landscapes that mix vegetation with volcanic earth. Don't miss Mount Tindaya or the Corralejo and Jandía natural reserves. Travelling with children? In addition to the camel-riding experience, they will enjoy flying kites on the beaches of Fuerteventura.
How to get there...
Fuerteventura is perfectly connected by its international airport with important cities all over Europe. Also, several airlines and frequent ferry lines connect it with the rest of the Canary Islands, which will all you to arrive in just 20 minutes to Lanzarote, for example, which was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Will you settle for only imagining it?
