About Fuerteventura

Nearer to Africa than neighbouring Lanzarote, Fuerteventura’s dramatic volcanic landscape is striking, and its string of seaside towns are lively and colourful. The beaches, widely regarded as amongst the best in the Canary Islands, are a big attraction — as are the vast array of water sports which come with them. Whether you’re dreaming of sunbathing on golden sands, playing a round of golf in Caleta de Fuste or exploring this fascinating biosphere reserve on foot, you can be assured of a warm welcome at our Gurus’ selection of the best places to stay in Fuerteventura.

The island’s liveliest resort towns are undoubtedly Corralejo or Morro Jable, where you’ll find buzzing bars and eateries, as well as late-night party spots. Both seaside destinations — one near Fuerteventura’s southern tip and the other to the far north — also have lovely beaches and offer opportunities to sail, kitesurf and windsurf. If you choose to base yourself in Corralejo, day trips to beautiful and uninhabited Isla de Lobos come highly recommended.

Wind your way through the charming villages of the interior and the fishing ports which dot the coast, delving into Fuerteventura’s farming roots at the Centro de Artesania Molino de Antigua, the Salinas del Carmen and the Ecomuseo La Alcogida. The Centro de Arte Canario has an impressive collection of modern artwork. Nature lovers, on the other hand, will adore the Parque Natural de las Dunes de Corralejo and the Oasis Wildlife Park Fuerteventura’s dazzling botanical gardens. The island has been a UNESCO biosphere reserve since 2009. Speak to the teams at the best places to stay in Fuerteventura for a sense of how to make the most of the island’s natural beauty whilst protecting it for the future.
