The Fuerteventura area guide

Things to do

Floating 100km off the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, Fuerteventura belongs to the Canary Islands – a volcanic archipelago that's part of Spain. The islet is home to an expanse of idyllic white sandy beaches, a unique volcanic terrain, which has created an interesting almost Martian-like landscape and a subtropical climate that unsurprisingly lures visitors in.

Though Fuerteventura is a tourist hotspot, it is not overdeveloped like many of the other islets in the archipelago, meaning that the stunning isle retains many of its interesting natural features. Features such as sand dunes like the ones found in Dunas de Corralejo National Park in the north. This magnificent natural wonder features acres of pristine white sand dunes and the perfect vantage point in which the other islands – Lobos and Lanzarote – can be seen peeking out in the distance. Plus, the emerald green waters coupled with the warm but windy climate lends itself well to those looking to master the waves. It's also the perfect spot for those seeking peace and quiet

Away from the picture-perfect shore, Fuerteventura has a mixture of picturesque towns and pretty villages to discover. The lively town of Corralejo in the North is typically frequented by watersports enthusiasts as well as adrenaline junkies. The town is also home to a buzzing nightlife scene – ideal for night owls. Whereas in Tiscamanita, you can marvel at Aloe Vera farms and witness the impressive windmills, which form part of the volcanic, near barren backdrop. It's, therefore, certainly easy to see why so many people adore the slightly odd beauty of Fuerteventura and never quite want to leave.

Places to eat

The local cuisine of Fuerteventura is simple yet flavoursome. With a gorgeous stretch of coastline, the island, naturally, has a healthy helping of fish and seafood based dishes. Another local speciality is Papas Arrugadas, Canary wrinkly potatoes typically served with mojo - a fiery pepper sauce. Goat is the most popular meat dish on the isle and its milk is utilised to make Majorero cheese – another local delicacy.

A stomach-pleasing mix of wallet friendly and upmarket restaurants can be found scattered throughout the island serving such specialities as well as international favourites for the less adventurous. The beautiful setting of each eatery further enhances the dining out experience. Bar Nuria, a tapas bar, in Antigua is one spot popular with locals and tourists alike for the appetising starters on offer. And for special occasions, the charming Hotel Rural Casa Vieja in Villaverde prides itself on its exquisite menu.

Shopping

The major cities and resorts of Fuerteventura are home to shopping districts that boast the biggest names in high street fashion, quirky independent boutiques, artisan stores and farmers’ markets. Morro Jable, Corralejo and Puerto del Rosario – the capital – are, therefore, ideal locales for shopaholics. The best way to shop is to venture through the area’s ancient streets as they slowly reveal a plethora of stores waiting to be frequented. Backstreets often hide some of the best boutiques selling all manner of items!

Getting there & around

Getting to Fuerteventura is pretty straight-forward. Catch a direct flight from London Gatwick straight into the island's airport in under 4 and half hours. As the airport is situated near the capital, Puerto del Rosario, you can catch a taxi and arrive into the bustling city within minutes.

Once on the gorgeous isle, you can rely on the convenient bus service to travel to any of the major towns or villages. For instance, from the capital you can arrive in Corralejo in around 40 minutes. If, however, you prefer to drive, the road network is excellent and allows you to discover hidden natural wonders off the beaten track.

There is also the opportunity to visit the other isles in the archipelago from either of the five ports: Puerto del Rosario, Puerto de Corralejo, Puerto del Castillo, Puerto de Morro Jable and Puerto Gran Tarajal – which makes for a great weekend away!
