Vacation in Fuerteventura

 

Wonderfully contrasting landscapes

 

With subtropical landscapes and impressive 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 multitudes of magnificent beaches, Tenerife, dominated by its fascinating volcano and Grand Canaria, with its majestic sand dune reminischent of the Sahara… 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.

Fuerteventura

 

Seafront paradise

 

With only 68 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. Huge, gently-sloping sandy beaches surround the island and offer countless possibilities to experiment water activites, relaxation but are also perfect for children. Playa de Jandía and Corralejo are enliven with entertainment, shops and nightlife... A delight for holidaymakers!
