Fuerteventura

Without a doubt Fuerteventura has some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. There is such a vast expanse of sand here. From the golden sand dunes of Corralejo in the north to the miles of flat beaches in Jandia in the south. Make is an ideal destination for the beach lover.

The white sandy beaches of Corralejo stretch far and wide along the east coast. Flag beach is one of the best places to try water sports such as windsurfing and kite-surfing.

If you look around Caleta de Fuste you will notice that it does not have a significant old town. This is because it is a purpose built holiday resort. There are beaches, shopping and walks to go on.

Jandia is the peninsula at the southern end of Fuerteventura. There are several resorts there meaning there is plenty to do and plenty of places to stay, the highest point on the island, 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 best beaches in the world. You will find German, Spanish and British owned bars and restaurants.

There are excursions to go on such as the zoo safari. You can ride a camel in the amazing lunar landscape of the Volcano Calderon Hondo. You can go on a glass bottom boat for a journey between Corralejo harbour and the enchanting island of Lobos. There are some wonderful sites to be seen through its transparent bottom as you near the shallow waters around Lobos.
