Fuerteventura holidays are all about relaxation beneath year-round sunshine. The miles of stunning sandy beaches, dramatic dunes and bright turquoise seas have to be seen to be believed. Fuerteventura isn't as developed as its Canarian neighbours, so it's the perfect place to chill out. The main resort of Corralejo is lively after dark, but not enough to attract crowds of revellers. Costa Caleta has crystal-clear waters, Jandia is home to a breathtaking beach and luxury hotels, while Costa Calma is as serene as its name suggests. The whole island attracts families, single travellers and couples – all of whom come here to unwind and soak up the sun. Thanks to Fuerteventura's wonderful climate, it's a great destination for a dose of winter sun. A paradise island – just 4.5 hours away from the UK - it's easy to see why holidays in Fuerteventura are so popular.
The beach is the focus of most holidays in Fueteventura, but there's plenty to keep active guests busy. Choose from a huge selection of water sports, from snorkelling to kite surfing. Set sail on a lazy boat trip, or take the ferry to neighbouring Lanzarote. On dry land, play golf, or try quadbiking adventures and fastpaced jeep safaris. Away from the coast, explore rugged landscapes and whitewashed villages. Don't miss Baku water park in Corralejo, home to a mini golf course, fascinating marine life shows and a regular arts and crafts market.
Fuerteventura's main resort Corralejo has a good choice of bars and restaurants, without ever getting too rowdy. The young and lively crowd would much rather head to Tenerife or Gran Canaria for their fix of allnight fun. For sophisticated bars and clubs, head to the island Capital Puerto del Rosario. In quieter resorts, entertainment tends to be lowerkey.
As well as traditional, Canarian restaurants, the main resorts of Fuerteventura offer a huge choice of international cuisine. Think fast food joints, Chinese, Italian, Indian and British. Try the local wine, Spanish tapas and local specialities. For convenience and value, choose a half board or allinclusive package and eat in your hotel.
