The weather in Fuerteventura is very similar to Florida and Mexico which are on the same latitude, which make this island the ideal holiday location for great weather and disabled holidays.
There is no other island in the Canaries with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches. Even though most of the land on Fuerteventura consists of stone and rock, this island has some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. Approx 98km long and 30km across at the widest point.
Fuerteventura is generally regarded as the oldest of all the Canaries and its strange contours come from various volcanic episodes. The last eruption occurred about 7,000 years ago so you're pretty safe! Should you wish to see some volcanic activity take a trip to the neighbouring island of Lanzarote, it's well worth the effort and you can travel by ferry which is accessible for disabled people.
Water sports are very popular in Fuerteventura. Every year hundreds of surfers, windsurfers, kite surfers, and divers descend on Fuerteventura and during July the island is host to the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south. Even if you canít participate itís a great spectacle to see.
There are many new attractions inviting tourists to discover different aspects of the Island's landscape and culture such as the Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography and Tefia Craft Village to name but a few.
