Discover the different coastal areas of Fuerteventura
Stretch out on the soft sandy shores of Playa Barca in Costa Calma. Strong offshore winds make this area a paradise for windsurfing and kitesurfing – with world championships taking place there every summer. Drink in glorious coastal views from one of the hotels perched high above the shoreline. An array of restaurants and bars offer plenty of dining and cocktail-supping options.
Correlejo is a bustling, vibrant town that has preserved the charm of its fishing village origins. Browse in the shops and stop for a refreshing glass of sangria at one of the many bars and restaurants that line the main street leading to the harbour. Or tuck into salty fresh seafood at a quayside eatery. Cruise by ferry to Lanzarote or glimpse exotic marine life on a glass-bottomed boat tour. Alternatively, simply unwind on Correlejo’s golden shores.
You will never be short of things to do in bustling Caleta de Fuste. Whether it be soaking up the Spanish sunshine on the sheltered beach, or sampling the lively nocturnal scene. Treat yourself to some retail therapy at the bustling shopping centre or practise your swing at two of the best golf courses in Fuerteventura. Those with a thirst for action can choose from an abundance of water sports, or take an exhilarating underwater journey by submarine.
Discover something for everyone in Jandia. Miles of white sands beckon to sun worshippers. While a gentle breeze invites windsurfers and kite-surfers to take to the tide. Overlooked by the dramatic Pico de la Zarza mountain range – excellent for hiking – the modern town hums with energy from a multitude of hotels, restaurants and nightspots. For those seeking a slower pace, the old town of Morro Jable is a delightful place to enjoy an al fresco seafood meal by the harbour.
