One of the largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is garlanded with sweeping beaches, making it a sumptuous alternative to the more famous islands of Lanzarote and Tenerife. Think smooth, scenic sands, and crystalline waters on which yellow glints of sunlight dance all day. The year-round warmth makes it a favourite holiday destination no matter when you’re thinking of coming, while anyone who fancies doing more than just working on their tan can get stuck into everything from kite-surfing and windsurfing to cultural exploration and glass-bottomed boat tours. Holiday villas in Fuerteventura are plentiful, so you can pick the perfect place for your Canary Islands adventure.
Going the classic route and staying in a hotel is one option when on this pretty island. But you can take things up a notch by opting for one of the Fuerteventura holiday rentals, which will offer far more space and serenity for lower nightly rates. Imagine having all the privacy and comforts of home, complete with large living areas, separate bedrooms and a proper kitchen, but in the tropical context of the Canary Islands. With ebookers, you can find stylish Fuerteventura holiday villas all over the island, and many feature outdoor pools where you can splash and relax on those endless sunny days. That means, even when you’re not by the beach, there are watery frolics to be had steps from the bed.
For those hankering after balmy nights on the town, hitting the bars of Corralejo ranks as one of the top things to do on the island. Whether you want to sip mojitos while watching a live band, or show off your karaoke skills, it’s all happening here. But there’s a more tranquil side to Corralejo as well, with a quaint old town quarter, and miles of rippled sand dunes on the outskirts. On the southwestern peninsula of the island, you’ll find the sprawling white beaches of Jandia, close to a dramatic mountain range. Want to discover the history of the island? Pay a visit to the 15th-century town of Bentancuria, which is dotted with Spanish colonial architecture and museums. For an unusual day trip, take one of the boats out to Lobos, a small island off the coast of Fuerteventura, where hikers will discover a volcanic landscape of rocky coves, salt marshes and inland pools.
Many visitors may simply want to stick to one part of the island, and that means you won’t have to concern yourself with transport options. However, if you want to go beyond the nearest beach and see other attractions on the island, you can make use of the many bus networks that criss-cross Fuerteventura. Alternatively, hiring a car will give you complete freedom to seek out different towns and resorts, not to mention the rustic splendour in between the coastal hotspots.
