Fuerteventura Travel Guide
With golden sand, warm water and a gentle sea breeze, Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and attracts huge numbers of sun-worshippers and water sports enthusiasts every year.
The name ‘Fuerteventura’ translates to ‘strong wind’ and it’s an apt name for the island that is subject to a continuous cooling breeze. It’s a perfect place for families and couples and extremely popular with all water sports lovers. Fuerteventura is believed to have the best beaches in the Canaries and even boasts some of the best in Europe. The island has more than 150 beaches which cover roughly 120 miles of sun-drenched shoreline and crystal-clear waters.  
If you can drag yourself away from the shoreline during your stay, inland is well worth exploring. Wind-whipped lava fields and valleys of euphorbia give way to centuries-old villages that have missed the march of mass tourism. Corralejo, which is situated in the north is the most popular town on the island, it balances old and new. Visit while on holiday to Fuerteventura and you’ll find traditional tapas bars in the old town and karaoke bars in the resort centre. Further down the coast, Costa Caleta is a family favourite, with water sports and international restaurants easy to come by.
