Fuerteventura is the ideal 'holiday get away from it all' choice. There's miles of yielding sandy beaches, far-reaching sand dunes and blue green sea.
Most resorts are a beach-lover's delight and nearly all holiday resorts have tons of water sports from scuba diving and snorkeling to para-gliding and jet skiing. Of course, if you don't want to do something more vigorous than lay down on the warm sands and bathe in the sun, why shouldn't you? The lengthy rolling expanse of lustrous white sand dunes that compose Corralejo National Park are an informal nature reserve with copious amounts of space to work on your all over suntan without being bothered.
The temperate winds which carry from the Sahara Desert to the south make for an unrivalled windsurfing environment. If you're still under pressure to get the mainsail up and avoiding going overboard in, the harmless, shallow waters and moderate winds of Caleta del Fuste are perfect for amateurs. If you're already proficient, join windsurfing fanatics from around the globe, putting your abilities to the test. Both Jandia and Corralejo are predominantly trendy with qualified water sport experts.
Fuerteventura can be a fantastic destination to unwind - days can very nearly grind to a halt and nightlife is relaxing and comparatively simple. The resorts have just enough shops, hospitable bars and some outstanding restaurants - if you enjoy fresh ocean seafood accompanied by cool white wine, you'll not be dissatisfied! Nightclubs and discos are a lower priority and most of the evening amusements will be focused around the hotels.
Of course, Fuerteventura isn't just beaches. Venture inland and discover the bleak, volcanic scenery or retrace the steps of old Berber pirates also make time to visit Betancuria, the previous capital, built on the slopes of an inactive volcano.
Fuerteventura is the definitive family beach holiday destination or couples get-away, and ideal if water sports are precedence
