Fuerteventura Island 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.

Fuerteventura’s residents are still affectionately known as Majoreros, which comes from the word mahos, a type of goatskin shoe worn by the original settlers. These days, Fuerteventura’s residents are of a more eclectic mix, with plenty of British Irish, German, and Northern European neighbours all rubbing shoulders nicely.

Corralejo is the busiest tourist resort on the Island, and is right on the northern coast. Pastel coloured homes sprinkled aaround the town give Corralejo a quaint almost toy-town feel to the place. But don’t be deceived. The bustling harbour, many water activities, and hopping nightlife mean that this town shouldn’t be underestimated. To the northeast – are the famous sand dunes.

Miles and miles of white sands along the coast, providing a stunning collar to the beautiful volcanoes behind them. Speaking of sand and beaches – Fuerteventura has more than 150 of them… and also boasts some of the longest beaches in the Canaries.

Either fine white sand, or the breathtaking black volcanic lava shingle. With the weather in Fuerteventura being stable all year round, it is no surprise that it is popular with travellers seeking warmer climes.

Puerto del Rosario is the administrative capital of the Island, and home to many thriving businesses. There is also a large shopping centre, containing High Street brands that you will recognise from the UK.
