Fuerteventura is the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands and a brilliant holiday destination for all ages, offering brilliant family-friendly attractions as well as challenging hikes and busy bars for older explorers. Boasting gorgeous sandy beaches, a year-round great climate and a plethora of fun activities, the island is a favourite destination for many.
Check out our 6 top reasons why we absolutely love the island of Fuerteventura!
1. Year-round destination
As with nearly all of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura offers gorgeous weather throughout the year – it’s a holiday destination for any season you desire! Sitting in the Atlantic Ocean, the island boasts an average temperature of 24*C in the summer, with around 10 hours of sunshine. In the winter months, the temperature drops to a reasonable 19*C, still offering six satisfying hours of Spanish sun daily!
2. Beautiful beaches
Fuerteventura offers a rich diversity of beaches across its coast. The island truly offers a beach for everyone; from the family friendly Costa Caleta Beach, offering golden sands, turquoise waters and small pebbles, to the quieter, more secluded Gran Tarajal Beach, which is visited moreso by locals than holidaymakers.
The Parque Natural de Corralejo is hugely popular amongst beach-lovers, as an impressive 11-kilometre long sweep of dunes, offering brilliant sunbathing opportunities and gorgeous panoramic views. Whether you want to relax on soft sands or try out a watersport on your holiday to the island, the perfect beach is waiting for you.
3. Charming Betancuria
The small town of Betancuria is located in the western part of Fuerteventura, offering a charming taste of life on the island. The former capital of the island, Betancuria is a quaint town, home to the popular Museo Arqueológico y Etnográfico museum and a great place to wander around before sitting under Spanish sun with a drink in hand.
4. Great for animal-lovers
Fuerteventura is home to the popular Oasis Park, a fantastic day-out filled with entertaining shows, a safari and of course – animals! The park includes a huge amount of fascinating and exotic animals, from giraffes to hippopotami, as well as a beautiful botanic garden to explore. A visit to the park is sure to be enjoyed by all!
5. A cheesy museum!
Cheese-lovers are in paradise on a visit to the island’s cheese-themed Museo del Queso Majorero. The museum includes interactive displays (popular amongst children in particularly), tours and exhibits about the production of Majorero cheese. It’s an educational and tasty attraction for sure!
6) A magical mountain
Fuerteventura’s epic and sacred mountain, the Montaña de Tindaya, is a must-see on your holiday to the island. The mountain, located in the north-east of Fuerteventura, is said to be a ‘magical mountain’, which can explored by visitors on a well-marked route on its south-west crest.
