The first bilingual school in Fuertevenura is soon to be constructed after planning permission was granted. The school will be located in the Tuineje municipality, a short distance from Gran Tarajal.
La Oliva is the latest municipality in Fuerteventura to officially designate a beach for dog owners to be able to legally exercise their pets. The town Hall has allocated the Bristol beach in Corralejo for this purpose, after campaigning by residents in area.
Tuineje promotes itself with the phrase authentic Fuerteventura, and it is certainly the case that the resorts in the municipality have a more Spanish feel than those to be found in some of the other municipalities.
It is the most southerly municipality, though the orientation on most maps of the island suggest otherwise. It has areas of unspoilt natural beauty, and its coastline consists of cliffs separated by the mouths of the large valleys. These tend to have towns based around them.
There is a new harbour at Gran Tarajal, and the beach consists of fine black sand. There are a couple of showers at the edge of the beach and its best to use them to get rid of the sand which tends to stick. There are many shops to be found in Gran Tarajal as well as many bars and restaurants.
Great food and very hospitable people. So helpful and everything is if a very high standard. The restaurant overlooks the beach on a very pleasant avenue where all the locals visit.
