Things to do in Fuerteventura
A watersports paradise for many, Fuerteventura is the go-to place for riding the waves and even hosts an annual windsurfing championship.

Plus, with 3000 hours of sunshine per year, there’s never a bad time to rent a villa in Fuerteventura.
Fuerteventura tops the Canary Islands league table when it comes to beaches. Some believe that the island’s name originates from the term ‘strong winds’, because of the sands that are carried over from the Sahara and have rested on its shores. Caleta de Fuste has a man-made sandy beach perfect for relaxing, whereas Corralejo is home to over 11 kilometres of golden sand dunes – enough space for complete tranquillity. If peace and quiet is what you’re after, there is plenty to be enjoyed on a villa holiday in Fuerteventura.
