With subtropical landscapes and luxurious vegetation, desert areas, vertiginous cliffs and golden beaches, the Canary Islands have everything to offer you. Lanzarote, the land of lava and fire, Fuerteventura, with its nod to the Sahara, Tenerife, dominated by its fascinating volcano and Grand Canaria, with multitudes of magnificent beaches… they are all quite different. But each one of them offers a dazzling sun and a mild climate which guarantees a successful seaside holiday for all ages.
With only 23 inhabitants per square km, Fuerteventura is the least populated of the Canary Islands. Thanks to its dry climate and an exceptional amount of sunshine, it is a paradise for swimming and water sports. The fine sand beaches which encircle it gently slope down towards the sea on all sides, thus guaranteeing pleasant seaside activities, even for the children. The seaside resorts of Playa de Jandía and de Corralejo offer very lively nightlife too.
Corralejo is an old fishing village located at the far north of Fuerteventura in the El Río creek, approx. 40 km from the airport. In recent years, it has been transformed into a very popular seaside resort with the best tourist facilities on the island. The nature reserve, with its superb dunes and long sandy beach, is located approx. 5 km from the centre.
Costa Calma is located at the narrowest point of the island and approx. 63 km south of the airport. This tourist centre has several shopping centres with both shops and restaurants. This is the starting point of the magnificent sandy beach which stretches for approx. 20 km to Morro Jable.
The holiday destination of Caleta de Fuste is only approx. 12 km south of the island’s capital Puerto del Rosario and approx. 7 km from the airport. As well as the little marina, there are many restaurants, bars and water sports, as well as a shopping centre.
Thirty years ago, the inhabitants of Morro Jable, located at the southern tip of the island and approx. 90 km from the airport, all used to make a living from fishing. Today, the village is among the best tourist centres on the island, without having lost any of its original charm. The long sandy beach of Playa de Jandía on the peninsula of the same name has the reputation for being one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Europe.
Leaving the tourist villages of Jandia and Costa Calma, our excursion begins in the direction of Ajuy, a cute fishing village. Then, we will visit the emblematic village of Pájara and Betancuria, the historic capital of the Canary Islands, with its ancient Santa María church, full of interesting artistic details of the era. Afterwards, we will visit the ‘Pepe’ goat farm, where you can taste the country’s best goats’ cheese.
Our tour will then lead us on towards the Antigua ‘Craft Centre’, which will also surprise you with its marvellous cactus garden and windmill, built according to the plans by the famous Lanzarote architect, César Manrique. Taking the return road towards the south, we will make a stop to visit an aloe vera farm, a medicinal plant with many uses.
We reserve the right to change the itinerary, if needed.
