Holidays to Fuerteventura are first and foremost about the beaches, and once you see them you’ll understand why – they’re the best in the Canaries.
Fuerteventura has more than 150 different beaches to shout about. The island’s stretches of sand range from deserted bays to well-equipped bases for families. Some of the island’s coves and bays are held in such high regard, they’ve been given natural park status.
The island is known for shallow-water beaches, like Sotavento Beach,
which hosts international water-sports events. Northeast, La Lajita village is home to
Oasis Park zoo and its adjacent Botanical Garden. Jandía Natural Park dominates the peninsula
to the southwest, with rich birdlife and volcanic peaks.
When to Go?
Temperatures in Fuerteventura rarely drop below the mid-teens in winter and 25°C in summer. In August, it can get as hot as 30°C. Fortunately, the island feels the benefit of trade winds, so it’s never unbearably warm. It’s also one of the drier Canary Islands. The most rain falls on the north of the island between October and March, but even then you rarely get more than 1.5 centimetres a month.

Costa Caleta, or Caleta de Fustes as the locals call it, sits on the east coast of Fuerteventura. It’s been purpose-built, so you won’t go wanting for shops, bars and restaurants, which are all to hand on the main street. And while the nights are just the right side of lively, days are all about lazing on the sheltered beach.
It’s set in a curved bay, so you’re nice and sheltered here with a few beachfront cafés on hand.
Enjoy the peace of Caleta Harbour with its gleaming yachts, fish-filled waters and views out to the ocean. It's a great spot for a stroll before heading off to one of the restaurants nearby.
On Fuerteventura’s north coast, Corralejo is a place that likes to keep you on your toes. It’s got some of the best surfing in Europe, an unmatched nightlife, and tonnes of shops and restaurants. Though if it’s down time you’re after, there are sweeping dunes as deserted as the surface of the moon.
If you're thinking of trying Fuerteventura but are unfamiliar with all its delights,
then a holiday in Costa Calma will certainly introduce them to you. Known as the Calm Coast,
the town lies on the southern part of the island and is known the world over for providing
great holiday activities along with plenty of peace and relaxation. If you're looking for a
family break in a safe and pleasant Canary Island town, then a cheap Costa Calma holiday is
definitely the place for you!
Costa Antigua is situated on the east coast of Fuerteventura, close to Caleta de Fuste , and only a short distance from Fuerteventura airport. The area is very "up and coming" and has improved a great deal recently, mostly due to pressure from the Neighbourhood Association on local polititians. The area was originally developed with tourism in mind
The visitors that appreciate Costa Antigua most are those that are looking for a relaxing break, a short distance away from the more touristy town of Caleta, it is very friendly as there is a community of residents, rather than just tourists. However, these days Costa Antigua is fast becoming the place to be!
Jandia is the peninsula at the southern end of Fuerteventura. It includes the resorts of
Costa Calma and Playas de Jandia, as well as the port of Morro Jable and several smaller
resorts. The highest point on Fuerteventura, Pico de Zarza, is to be found there, and once
upon a time Jandia was separated from the rest of Fuerteventura by the sea. The deposits of
sand that linked the two have resulted in some of the bestbeaches in the world.
