Travel Destination: Fuerteventura


If you are looking for a relaxed, beachside holiday Fuerteventura is the perfect spot. It´s got amazing weather all year around and its cheap and easily accesible from Madrid by direct flight and from many other cities in Europe.

Fuerteventura is one of the seven Canary Islands and is often known for its Sahara like beaches with white sands. It can often be windy there, especially in the summer but it rains very little.  Corralejo is the largest resort town and many Brits, Scots and Germans find it the perfect spot for the holidays.

The best thing for me about Fuerteventura is that it´s very low key.  There are bars and restaurants but it´s really just a very relaxed time.  You can rent quads, snorkle, and of course with it´s winds, its the perfect place to learn how to windsurf or kite surf.  Try Lastminute Destinations on the main street, Calle Nuestra Señora del Carmen, to take a day trip to Lanzarote, or other fun activities.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Flag Beach.  Several kilometers of white, sandy beaches, the perfect spot to simply sun yourself, or kite and windsurf if you so desire!

El Cantante Restaurant-Bar

Perfect spot for a wine or coffee while you enjoy the beautiful ocean view!  They also have live music in the evenings.

Paseo Atlántico, 2, 35660 928 53 73 57 ‎

Calle del Nuestra Señora del Carmen

Bars, restaurants, places to rent cars and bikes, the main street in town!

El Campanario

A tiny outdoor mall with a huge grocery store, bowling alley, shops, and restaurants.  You can even climb the bell tower for amazing views!
