With three thousand hours of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast with only 100km separating the 'Punta de la Entallada' from Cape Juby in Morroco and is the second largest (after Tenerife) of all the islands.
The weather conditions of Fuerteventura are very similar to Florida and Mexico which are on the same latitude, which make this the ideal holiday location.
There is nowhere else in the Canaries with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches (more than one hundred and fifty). Even though most of the land consists of stone and rock, these are some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. Approx 98km long and 30km across at the widest point.
Water sports are very popular in Fuerteventura. Every year hundreds of surfers, windsurfers and divers descend on Fuerteventura and during July the island is host to the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south.
There are many new attractions inviting tourists to discover different aspects of the Island's landscape and culture such as the Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography and Tefia Craft Village to name but a few.
Without doubt Fuerteventura has some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe.
There is such a vast expanse of sand here. From the Golden sand dunes of Corralejo in the north to the miles of flat beaches in Jandia in the south. This makes Fuerteventura an ideal destination for the beach lover.
These are the beaches that charm thousands of tourists to this beautiful island every year.
With a wide variety of excellent bars and restaurants there's plenty on offer in Fuerteventura to keep you well entertained till the small hours, particularly in the resorts of Corralejo and Caleta de Fuste.
