Puerto del Rosario

Puerto del Rosario (meaning Port of the Rosary) has been the capital of Fuerteventura for over 150 years and has over 40,000 inhabitants. It is conveniently located just 6km north of Fuerteventura’s El Matorral airport, and acts as the chief port of access to the island. Although considered to be traditionally more of an industrial town, Puerto del Rosario is continuing to grow into a touristic area thanks to recent renovations in and around the town, notably on the developed sea front where you will find the new tourist office. The capital boasts two impressive beaches, the smaller in-town Playa Chica which has special disabled access, and the further South Playa Blanca with blue flag status, which is ideal for water sports such as sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving, attracting many tourists.

Many people visit the capital to explore the wonderful Las Rotondas shopping centre, located on the southern side of the town and is open from 10:00 till 22:00 excluding Sundays. The centre includes a variety of fashion, jewellery, beauty, sports and electronic shops along with many cafés and restaurants, offering something for everyone. The centre is easily accessible too, with busses running daily. There is even a free weekly bus from the nearby resorts of Caleta de Fuste and Corralejo to Las Rotondas.

There is a lot of culture to explore in Puerto del Rosario, with the old harbour lined with Canarian styled houses, various museums and the Culture Centre; where plays, exhibitions and concerts are held. The famous museum honouring philosopher Miguel de Unamuno is located in Puerto del Rosario and offers an interesting insight into his life after being exiled from Spain. When you wander around this picturesque town you will find several statues, these form part of an open air exhibition and they have been produced for competitions held in the capital. Carnival season is important amongst the residents too, with the main fiesta taking place in the spring. Thousands of people line the streets and celebrate until the early hours in their impressive and exquisite costumes, a truly wonderful site to behold and be a part of.

There are a wide variety of restaurants in the town, offering traditional Spanish cuisine such as tapas and succulent seafood. Roads to nearby Caleta (c. 20 minutes) and the further afield Corralejo (c. 40 minutes) are easily accessible from Puerto del Rosario, either via your own vehicle or from the newly built bus station with busses running every half hour, offering you the chance to explore this magnificent island with turquoise waters.
