One of the newer resorts on Fuerteventura, Caleta de Fuste (also known as El Castillo and Costa Caleta) lies 8km south of the island's airport on the east coast and 12km south of the capital, Puerto del Rosario.
Purpose built around an existing bay, choose from amusement arcades, mini-golf, or summer bouncy castles – there’s plenty of family friendly activities here.
Things to See and Do in Caleta de Fuste
Play a round or two of golf at Fuerteventura Golf Club. The first 18-hole course on the island, it features 3 lakes, 67 bunkers, and beautifully maintained fairways and greens. There’s also a 50 capacity driving range and large putting area on which to hone your skills.
If you’re holidaying on Fuerteventura, it’s fairly likely you’ll spend a few days on the beach soaking up the sun. Caleta de Fuste is built around a wonderful golden bay with a huge beach and promenade. As a natural cove, waves are small which make it perfect for small children. With regards to water sports, scuba diving, snorkelling, and windsurfing is all available here. You can also hire jet-skis and canoes should you wish.
Take a step back in time by visiting Cueva del Llano; a one million year old lava cave. Home to the Opilion, a type of harvestman spider that doesn’t spin a web, there is also a museum here detailing the history of the island.
If you have the kids with you, drive to Corralejo in the north of the island. Home to the Acua Water Park, you’ll find Jacuzzis, wave pools, slides, and solariums in which to relax.
Whilst in the area, take a ferry to Isla de Lobos. Home to seals and a huge variety of birdlife, it’s a great trip for naturalists.
