The island

Fuerteventura is situated in the Canary Islands and measures 210 kilometres from one end to the other. It is outstanding for its magnificent white sand beaches and for the bright sun that shines all year round.
It is an essential destination for surfing, kitesurfing windsurfing, scuba diving and any other water sport lovers. Here you will find unforgettable spots. There are more than 150 beaches in the northern and southern part of the island, spread on a coatline of over 340 kilometres. Meanwhile, on the east coast you will find cliffs and small, hidden coves. The crystal clear waters are ideal for most watersports: sailing, water skiing, surfing, fishing... and, above all, wind- and kitesurfing: The island has had an important place on the Wind- and Kitesurfing World Cup for years. There is a long list of beaches where you can practise this sport: Corralejo, Cotillo, Jandía, Caleta de Fuste, Cofete... In the north of the island surfers will find their own little paradise in between Corralejo and El Cotillo. There is more than a dozen of high quality surfspots in a very short distance and, some of the lucky ones can even surf Europes longest right hand point break on a nearby island. If there happens to be a 4 mts. westswell with north wind you might check out the lighthouse of Jandía and find another big surprise.
This is also the case for scuba diving. Fuerteventura is an ideal destination for diving fans, thanks to the crevices, caves, tunnels, overhangs and rock formations to be found on its ocean beds. Its excellent climate, sandy beaches with dunes, stunning natural beauty and modern infrastructure make Fuerteventura a privileged destination for tourists. A good way to get to know the island's most hidden spots is to explore the tracks and trails that will lead you to areas of unspoilt countryside. This is the case of Tindaya Mountain and the Betancuria Natural Reserve, the island's largest area of protected countryside. Fuerteventuras International Airport is situated five kilometres to the south of Puerto del Rosario, and can be reached from most European countries. The island also has scheduled boat and ferry services to the rest of the archipelago, departing from Puerto del Rosario, La Oliva , Corralejo and Pájara.
