The Island of Fuerteventura
The island’s name is a compound word formed by the Spanish words for “strong” (Fuerte) and “winds” (Ventura).
Fuerteventura has Kilometres of heavenly white or golden sand beaches with turquoise waters. This is the perfect snapshot for anyone who loves feeling the sun, the sea breeze, and taking revitalizing swims in calm, transparent waters. You don’t have to go far to make this dream image a reality any day of the year. It’s right here, in Fuerteventura, to enjoy intensely and without hurrying, just a few hours away from the main European cities.
‘Wind and wave’ sportspeople from around the world appreciate the excellence of this island for surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing because of its extraordinary climate, long days, sun every day of the year, perfect wind and wave conditions, full range of services, and facilities… Everything a sportsperson of any level could possibly need.
And if we get tired of enjoying relaxing days at the beach, which is unlikely , Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands biosphere reserves, also has other unforgettable things to do.
Explore the austere landscapes inland and be amazed by the beauty of its rolling hills; stop in villages where time moves at a different pace and discover the island’s history; visit small, picturesque coastal towns where we can enjoy delicious fresh fish and other delicacies of local cuisine, such as the prestigious cheeses, which have a designation of origin, are internationally renowned and have received countless awards.
There are miles of beaches on Fuerteventura that are nearly empty. Even those with well-developed tourism infrastructures, there are still many uncrowded. Surfers love the northern beaches, which are windy and have heavy surf.
The Port Fishing of Corralejo
Corralejo is a fishing port located on the north coast. It has a surfing school, rentals, and strong watersports culture. Playa el Pozo has moderate waves, safe swimming waters, and various kiosks rent water sports equipment, sun umbrellas, and beach chairs. There are also many other options along Corralejo’s almost 16 km of sandy shore.
Fuerteventura’s reputation as a paradise for beach-lovers is due to Playa Sotavento. It runs along the entire south coast, just at the tip of Fuerteventura. Nearly 30 km of golden sand are available to you, surrounded by turquoise waters. Tourists flock to these uncrowded beaches because of the many amenities available in towns and tourist enclaves.
El Cotillo is located in the island’s northwest corner if you want a relaxing day on the beach. You can relax on the beach, or you can board and ride the waves.
This must be one of Europe’s coolest kite festivals! Every year, hundreds of kites take to the skies from Fuerteventura’s dunes.
Two kings overlook the stunning mountains of Fuerteventura. If you stay up until 1 a.m. You can count the stars and capture the Milky Way high up.
You can also take a look at how to use the camera settings at the Morro Velosa Statues. It is stunning.
