From watersports opportunities on the warm, clear waters to exploring the island's volcanic landscapes and UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Fuerteventura offers a wealth of natural wonders. The island's natural landscapes are also ideal for hiking, with trails winding through deserts and past dunes, and even a chance to explore small, remote islands.

Fuerteventura is a destination that offers a unique blend of natural beauty, cultural heritage, and adventure. Whether you are looking to relax on the beach or explore the island's many wonders, Fuerteventura holidays have something for everyone.
 

Why go on Holiday to Fuerteventura?

 

Fuerteventura is the perfect destination for a budget-friendly holiday in the sun. With over 150 beaches and 3000 hours of sunshine annually, this Canary Island is a paradise for sun-seekers. Holidays to Fuerteventura offer a variety of activities for those looking for a more active holiday, such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and hiking through the island's volcanic landscapes.

 

Dunas de Corralejo Natural Park is a must-see destination for nature lovers visiting Fuerteventura, with the park covering a vast area of 6,400 acres and is home to the island's iconic dunes, which stretch for miles and offer breathtaking views.

 

The island's traditional villages and authentic cuisine offer a glimpse into Fuerteventura's rich cultural heritage. And with many all inclusive holidays available, you can enjoy all of these experiences without breaking the bank.

 

Fuerteventura’s year-round climate is one of its biggest draws and why it is a leading winter sun destination for Brits. If you're looking for the warmest weather and the best beach conditions, the peak tourist season is between June and September, with average temperatures around 27-30°C. For a less crowded and more budget-friendly holiday, consider visiting Fuerteventura during the shoulder seasons of spring (April-May) or fall (October-November). The weather is still pleasant, with temperatures around 24-27°C, and there are fewer tourists which means more room on the beach and by the pool!

 

Finally, if you want to avoid the crowds and the heat, you can visit Fuerteventura during the winter months (December-February) as the temperature is around 20-24°C and is ideal weather for exploring the island's walking trails and volcanic landscape.
