You can base yourself in the thick of it during your holidays to Fuerteventura by staying at one of the island’s all inclusive hotels among a bustling beach resort. On the north coast you'll find Corralejo, a popular sandy beach resort that is complete with a quaint town. Sip a beer and admire the scenery from one of the beach huts or simply doze on your sun lounger; you’ll find the pace of life is slow and laid back. If you enjoy combining beach bliss with some adrenaline, head to Playa de Sotavento for an introduction into the island’s water sports scene.

For those looking to escape the crowds, Jandia on the southern coast will suit your requirements. A relatively quiet resort that offers up an array of great hotels as well as bars and restaurants, staying here will give you the option to enjoy your Fuerteventura holidays at your own pace. If you’re travelling as a family, Costa Calma is home to a family friendly beach and plenty of top resorts, while Caleta de Fuste boasts beautiful coastal walks and enchanting coves, with secluded beaches and a golf course.

Action and Adventure in Paradise

The island naturally encompass an adventurous ethos, enforced primarily by the expansive coastline and the thrills that can be found along it. Holidays in Fuerteventura are hugely popular for wind surfing and kite surfing - as well as standard surfing - and you’ll find a variety of schools dotted around various resorts on the island that can help you hone your skills. The World Wind Surfing Championships are held here every July, just in case you want to see how the professionals do it!

If you need a break from the water, there are plenty of other action-packed things to do on this canary isle. If you’re really feeling adventurous, try dune jumping - a wild buggy ride across the volcanic bays and enormous sand dunes, or for something a little more laid-back, there is a great golfing scene across the island for those that have packed their clubs.

At the end of the day there’s nothing better than tucking into the wonderful cuisine of Spain, whether it’s a plate of delectable tapas or a hefty jug of sangria. The night doesn’t have to end once your plate is cleared – holidays to Fuerteventura boasts bustling nightlife, especially in Corralejo – so bring your dancing shoes.

Water Sports

You can enjoy a range of water sports while on holiday, from surfing and waterskiing to sailing and fishing. If you fancy delving deep into the world underwater then diving is a popular activity. You can explore colourful reefs, mysterious caves, canyons and underwater rock formations, all the while seeing some of the striking inhabitants along the way. If you'd prefer to stay closer to shore, snorkelling is also a great way to catch some stunning underwater life, with visibility being as much as 30 metres in some areas.

Sunbathing

With an average 320 days of sunshine per year, Fuerteventura is the perfect place to slap on the sun cream and top up that tan. With hot temperatures in the summer averaging around 30 centigrade, the refreshing breeze from the north helps to keep you cool while basking on the beach or by the pool. Winters are cooler but with temperatures still finding their way into the 20s, you can be confident of enjoying a winter break and still coming back to the UK with a healthy golden glow.

Boat Trips

Being an island, taking a boat trip is a fairly accessible thing to do. You can choose from an array of different excursions centred around various activities and sights. If you're interested in sea life, you can experience the watery world of the Atlantic, whether you choose to do it from the comfort of a boat with a glass bottom for seeing through the crystal waters or with a scuba diving, snorkelling or even a submarine-subcat trip, exploring the Jandi Peninsula. Failing that, you can take a dolphin-watching trip, travel across to Lanzarote to explore the volcanoes or visit Los Lobos, a small island nature reserve that is a tranquil retreat away from the holiday crowds.
