Fuerteventura, the second largest Canary Island and the closest to the African coast, is drenched in sunshine all year round.
A volcanic island, it boasts enormous sand dunes and sprawling beaches along its 340 kilometres of coastline. Becoming increasingly popular, Fuerteventura holidays offers a more laid back experience than its neighbouring islands, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife.
The island is ideal for couple and family holidays, with plenty of low key and relaxed resorts dotted along the coastline. The atmosphere is peaceful and the nightlife is generally quiet, but late-night fun can be found in the largest resort of Corralejo. It is also a culinary heaven, with all types of international food available, as well as local seafood specialities.
A perfect place for those looking to relax and unwind, Fuerteventura is also a watersports paradise. Famous for its windsurfing, it plays host to the World Windsurfing Championships every year. The small island is easily explored by car and day trips by ferry to neighbouring Lanzarote are very popular.
With world renowned beaches and amazing attractions, such as the National Park, there are many reasons to choose Fuerteventura for a sun holiday.
