Fuerteventura is often associated with adjectives like ‘fabulous’ or ‘fantastic’, and to regular visitors, that’s no surprise. But to those who aren’t in the know, the question still remains: what’s so fabulous (or fantastic) about holidays in Fuerteventura?
The answer is, plenty! For starters, as holiday destinations go, Fuerteventura has the advantage of being a year-round haunt. It’s part of the ever-popular Canary Islands, an archipelago cast out into the Atlantic Ocean not far from the coast of West Africa.
Come in summer for scorching temperatures with a refreshing coastal breeze, or opt for a visit during Christmas or the New Year for a winter warmer, when the temperatures are often pleasant enough for a t-shirt and cardigan.
So that’s the climate sewn up. But what about things to do? That all depends on where you go, but when it comes to holidays in Fuerteventura; you can certainly expect to find some fantastic beaches. In fact, Fuerteventura is renowned for being the ‘quiet’ island.
Compared to its livelier neighbours of Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura is a relatively laid-back affair which makes for a cracking beach break. It’s home to some fantastic beaches, where mile upon mile of golden sands glitter under cloudless blue skies, and the refreshing coastal breeze and cool chill of the Atlantic offers a welcome respite from the sizzling Canarian sunshine.
In Corralejo you’ll find a popular resort with fantastic beaches and a water park, along with plenty of watersports and family-friendly activities. Then there’s Costa Caleta, which offers a sheltered bay with calm areas for little paddling feet.
Jandia is another popular resort, which is a great spot for water sports enthusiasts and offers a superb range of accommodation with a number of luxury hotels. Take a look at Thomas Cook’s Fuerteventura offering. As you’ll see, there are plenty of cracking resorts to choose from and a long list of things to see and do.
