Why Holiday in Fuerteventura
There is also plenty for adults to get involved with and for the keen golfers, there is one 9-hole course and three 18-hole golf courses on the island. Holidaymakers who want to experience the more traditional side to Fuerteventura are welcome to visit the rural areas further inland. In Betancuria, the former capital, you can explore the Spanish history and culture by visiting the Santa Maria Church and a number of museums.
The island is just 100 km from the African coast, showcasing a rugged volcanic landscape and impressive natural attractions like the sand dunes of the Corralejo National Park. The dunes stretch far along the coast, in front of the Montana Rojo known as the red mountain, with some dunes reaching heights of 50 metres. There are plenty of hiking trails and opportunities for adventure in the National Park.
The name Fuerteventura translates to ‘strong winds’ making the island an ideal spot for windsurfing, especially at Ezquinzo beach. The more sheltered and shallow lagoons and bays along the coastline are ideal for swimming. For gentle waves, perfect for paddling, head to the tranquil Playa Esmeralda beach. Snorkeling and scuba diving are also popular as the island boasts clear and warm waters.

The currency used in Fuerteventura is the Euro. As always, we advise you to shop around for the best conversion rate.
