The Canary Islands have so much to offer, from subtropical landscapes and lush vegetation to desert landscapes to breathtaking cliffs and golden beaches. There’s Lanzarote, the land of lava and fire, Fuerteventura with its endless beaches, Tenerife with its imposing volcano, and Gran Canaria with its majestic dunes reminiscent of the Sahara desert... Each island is different, but they are all bathed by a generous sun and enjoy a mild climate, so you can be sure of a great beach holiday all year round!
Fuerteventura is the least populated of the Canary Islands with a population density of 68 inhabitants per square kilometre. Its dry climate and abundant sunshine make it a paradise for swimming and water sports. The island is fringed with huge, gently sloping sandy beaches, which offer countless seaside activities for all ages, but also provide the perfect setting to just relax. Playa de Jandía and Corralejo have plenty of entertainment, shops and nightlife all day and night, to the delight of holidaymakers!
Caleta de Fuste is located 12 kilometres south of the island's capital, Puerto del Rosario. You’ll find many restaurants, bars, shops and seaside activities nestled around the small marina, which is the beating heart of this little seaside town. Distance from the airport: 7 km.
Corralejo is a former fishing village located in the El Río cove in the north of Fuerteventura. Over the years, this small port has grown into a popular resort with excellent tourist facilities.
