A little bit closer to Africa than its neighbour, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura’s towns are colourful, its volcano ridged landscape striking and it gets plenty of sunshine. The best places to stay in Fuerteventura can mostly be found in Corralejo or Morro Jable, which are the island’s two main resorts.
Most people are just interested in its beaches, arguably some of the biggest and best in the Canary Islands. Fuerteventura’s beaches aren’t just lauded by sun and sand lovers though, these are windy wonderlands much loved by windsurfers, kitesurfers and anyone who likes their waters wind-whipped.
If your idea of the best places to stay on Fuerteventura is more remote, then this UNESCO biosphere reserve won’t disappoint - some of it is very developed and some is untouched.
As well as the numerous beaches and stunning landscape, Fuerteventura offers plenty of cultural entertainment. There’s several beautifully restored local buildings, some of which house museums or art galleries, and some wonderfully ancient churches.
Don't forget that the Canary Islands are busy with sun seekers year round, so if you want to bag a bed in one of the best places to stay in Fuerteventura, you'll have to be organised and book early.
