Fuerteventura

A special place for ocean lovers

Fuerteventura is a volcanic island in the Spanish archipelago of the Canaries, and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean for almost 220 kilometres of coastline. The long fine white sandy beaches, the cliffs, the lava reefs … there are so many sites bathed by the ocean that there´s no choice but to hang out and enjoy!

Fuerteventura is renowned throughout the world for its many and varied watersports spots. Whether you are here for the action, or here to simply relax, the sunny island and endless beaches and ocean will ensure an amazing holiday in paradise.

Discover the north coast of Fuerteventura

In the very north of the island, the Corralejo Dunes Natural Park and its ten kilometre long beach are a must. Kitesurfing and windsurfing enthusiasts are always present here when the conditions are right, which is most of the year.

Just across the road, two kilometres away, is Los Lobos. It is an unpopulated island belonging to Fuerteventura, known for both its underwater world and its fauna, such as rare sea birds. It is of course preferable to go around by sailboat to continue to enjoy the sea air of the Canaries, and various excursions are available.

For wave lovers, there is a very long right-hand line which operates mainly between November and March, the spot being accessible by ferry from the port of Corralejo.

Even further north, a completely different landscape is exposed. Cliffs, lagoons of turquoise blue water, tranquility and, especially in winter, nice wind and varied wave conditions. Lovers of kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, wing foiling or extreme stand up paddling will find happiness here!

Stop off in the village of El Cotillo and savour a good fresh fish caught in the morning, with the bonus of a breathtaking view of the ocean from the local restaurant. Pure happiness!

This is not the only unmissable village in the north of Fuerteventura and Majanicho is also worth a visit, a small beautiful fishing port, with a wild side as well as a calm beach which is little frequented, unlike other beaches of the island. You may want to rent an electric bike and ride the trails between the volcanoes and the ocean.

The advantage of coming to Fuerteventura is that you will need at least two weeks to appreciate it in all of its splendour. A rental car is essential, so let´s now head for the south of the island.

Discover the south coast of Fuerteventura.

In the south of Fuerteventura, the island continues to show off its natural treasures. Starting with the beaches of Risco del Paso and Sotavento, located not far from the southern tip, in the Jandia Natural Park. Whatever your level of windsurfing or kitesurfing, the spots are easy to access and the wind blows in summer and in winter.

There are several ION CLUB water sports centres open all year round, one in Risco del Paso and the other in Costa Calma. The teams of both centres are there to make sure that you enjoy the ocean to the max during your stay.

Depending on the tides lagoons form on certain beaches, and the spots become quite magical for beginners and children.

After a surfing session, enjoy a well deserved break with a good tapas and a cold drink. There is no shortage of restaurants and bars in Costa Calma and Morro Jable. Although the ideal place to enjoy a beautiful sunset is in La Pared, a village in the southwest of Fuerteventura, which is also famous for its surfing spots, from beginners to advanced surfers.

To see more of the stunning nature Fuerteventura has to offer, what better place to go than the small village of Cofete. The scenery is unsettling, leaving you almost speechless, and the road to get there is beautiful. With a clear view of the spectacular cliffs, this is a must-see place on the island of Fuerteventura. The road to get there is a bit chaotic but it’s worth it, don’t hesitate to go down the access road to discover a vast and breathtaking beach and some impressive waves!
