Arrive and discover a pristine coastline with emerald green waters and over 150 km of white sand beaches. You’re in paradise and bathed in sunshine and relaxing negative ions from the sea breeze. The coast and the spectacular volcanic landscapes are why the island is a Biosphere Reserve.
Close your eyes and when you open them you’re a new person. A perfect moment to grab a board and hit the clear water. Or to explore the island’s cuisine in its villages. Try the fresh fish, wrinkly potatoes and the Designation of Origin cheeses.
The coast of Fuerteventura is sea and sand in its purest state. With beaches of all kinds there’s a perfect one whatever your plan. Forget everything and walk along along the shore, eat fresh fish right by the ocean, or just sit on the sand and watch the sunset. With 150 km of beaches the choice is yours.
Long sunny days, intense wind, and waves up to two metres mean that the island has a long tradition of windsurfing and kite surfing.
The immense volcanic landscapes and pristine beaches earned the entire island the honour of UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve status in 2009.
Betancuria Old Town
The island’s first city
Located in one of the driest parts of the island this archaic city, founded in the 15th Century, is history in masonry. Once the island’s capital it’s now its main cultural attraction with an archaeological museum that shows you how its ancient inhabitants lived.
Costa Calma beach
White sand and turquoise waters
These quiet beaches in the south of the island stretch for kilometres with white sand and calm turquoise waters. Sunbathe on the endless sand or relax in the clear, warm water. You’ll feel completely refreshed with 10 km of beach all to yourself.
The most famous virgin beach in the islands
You have to set aside a day to visit the most famous virgin beach in the Canary Islands. Stretching over 12 km with no development and as wild as they come, Cofete beach leaves you breathless.
La Concha beach, El Cotillo
Sheltered by a natural reef
Another of Fuerteventura’s stunners this half moon beach sheltered by a natural lava reef is pristine but conveniently close to a small town. Undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the Canaries with fine, white sand, calm, clear water and abundant marine life.
Corralejo Natural Park
9 km of big beaches and small coves
At first glance it’s hard to see how this desert landscape can hold some of the most idyllic beaches in the Canary Islands. Where the dunes meet the sea you get fine, white sand beaches and turquoise waters. A protected natural area almost 9 km long with almost endless stretches of sand and little sheltered bays.
La Concha beach on the Isle of Lobos
A serene refuge
This nature reserve, once inhabited only by monk seals, is today a serene refuge from the stresses of daily life. The boat trip across is worthwhile just to see the plants and birds that live nowhere else on Earth. The rest of this idyllic islet is a fantastic bonus.
