Where to go on Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura has four main holiday areas which are :- Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste,Costa Calma and Jandia.

Corralejo is in the north of the island and has a selection of hotels which range from 3 to 5 star. There is also a good range of self catering accomodation from apartments to luxury villas. The resort is not just favoured by the British as people come from mainland Spain, France, Italy and more recently, the countries of Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. So it should be viewed as being multi cultural. There are lots of activities including the Baku Water Park and wonderful sandy beaches. Suitable for families and couples.

Caleta de Fuste has long been a favourite with the British and this is where the majority go.Here too, there is a good range of accommodation to suit all budgets. Good for families.

Costa Calma is favoured by the German tourists as is Jandia. Again, a good selection of accommodation.

If you want something different away from the main tourist spots, then Lajares, a village in the north 5 miles from the sea in three directions, is good choice. It has an excellent range of accommodation, restaurants and little shops to suit every taste and especially caters for those who want a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts. Villaverde up in the hills has a good selection of villas to choose from and some notable restaurants.El Cotillo is mainly apartment accommodation and has some good sea food restaurants.This is on the coast and is generally very quiet but avoid the music festival week in August as it can be quite noisy into the early hours.Unless of course you like the music!

The beaches all along the east coast are beautiful golden sands lapped by azure seas.Those on the west coast can be dangerous, as the are open to the Atlantic, so be careful if you go touring and bathing.

The weather is generally very good with a temperature range of 18-30C with the occasional spike of 40C+ but this does not last long.There is very little rain which usually comes for a day or two in November and February. It can also be quite windy but this helps the temperature to remain at a pleasant level.

I have lived on the island for 7 years so I have a feel for how it ticks.Come and stay, you won’t be disappointed but make sure you choose the area which is best suited to your requirements.
