If you’re coming to Fuerteventura, you’re bound to be spending some time on the coast. The island’s main resorts are Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste, Costa Calma, and Jandia.
Costa Calma in particular is a fantastic area for snorkelling, but if you are feeling more energetic, travel to Risco del Paso and try a spot of windsurfing.
Discover Fuerteventura’s History
There are a wealth of museums dedicated to teaching tourists the history of Fuerteventura. Museo de la Sal for example covers the history of the El Carmen Salt Pans which date from the early 1900’s.
The Museo Arqueologico de Betancuria, on the other hand, houses displays and artefacts relating to archaeological digs on the island.
Golf Holidays on Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura isn’t currently recognised as a major golf destination but there’s plenty of work being done to change that. With Spain’s reputation for course design, it’s safe to say the courses they're developing should be pretty good. At the moment, you can take your pick from Fuerteventura Golf Club or Salinas de Antigua in Caleta de Fuste or the smaller La Pared Golf Academy in the south west.
Things to See and Do in Fuerteventura
Home to some of the best windsurfing spots in the world, Fuerteventura is a fantastic spot for beginners to learn the ropes. The World Championships are held at Sotavento Beach every year but the Costa Calma’s sheltered position also makes it a great place to start.
If you’re looking for a tour with a difference, head out on a donkey or camel safari from Lajares. You’ll get to explore the Calderon Hondo Volcano in a way unlike any other!
If it’s wildlife you’re after, the Jandia Natural Park is a great day out for both nature enthusiasts and photographers. If you’re up for it, take on the highest mountain on the island; the 807m high La Zarza, the views from the top truly are breathtaking.
