Fuerteventura island

Since the recession of 2008 Fuerteventura has been the less touristic isle of the canarian archipelago.
Even though the isle is quite the same size of Gran Canaria and Tenerife, the residents are one-tenth. For this reason has become the main goal for the tour operators starting from the touristic upturn in 2014, thanks to a big offer of services and amusements together with a wild atmosphere: it was a new world to discover.Fuerteventura is not still very touristic but it has an excellent road network usefull for safe and quick trips to all the breathless beaches.

Geography

Fuerteventura is 1.659 km²  wide and it is the second largest isle of the Canary Islands after Tenerife  (2.034,38 km²); it is also the nearest to the african coast, only  97 km.far.  The island is situated at the same latitude of  Florida and Messico, its temperature is quite never under 18°C. There are more than  152 beaches along the coast: 50 Km of white and soft sand and  25 KM of  black volcanic gravel.

The isle is also a paradise for surfers all year long,  thanks to an unchanging temperature, to the summer trade winds and to the Atlantic winter tides . Sailors, scuba divers and deep-sea fishermen love the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, because it’s not rare to meet whales , dolphins, swordfishes and turtles. A big part of the interior landscape, with big lowlands and volcanic hills, is a protected area that can be explored by off-roads, dirt bikes and mountain bikes.

The geographical position of the isle permitted to the Sahara sand to settle along the Fuerteventura coasts: this way many beaches were born. The most famous are:

  • La Concha in El Cotillo, white sand and long beach for surfers and romantic people who loves unforgettables sunsets.
  • The natural park named “Corralejo Dunes” , a fantastic desert made of white sand jumping into the ocean; some typical constructions made of black stones like little towers allow to protect from the wind.
  • The beaches of the little villages “los Molinos” and “Pozo Negro” made of black sand and stones.
  • Sotavento: the tides cover up and expose the big beach and create little lagoons where you can walk in shallow waters.
  • Cofete: one of the best places dominated by the wildest nature of the archipelago of the Canary Islands : for the eurpoean tourists it is the best beach in Spain. 12 km of white sands and tumultuous waters , a misterious landskape with a magic atmosphere: this place has inspired also novels and films.
