Fuerteventura – paradise in the Canary Islands

Similarly to the other Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is known for its mild subtropical climate. Contrary to what you may think, the island isn’t boiling hot – the temperature amounts to 20°C in winter and 24°C in summer. On the other hand, it’s never too cold, thanks to the fact that Fuerteventura is the least mountainous Canary island. If you associate this destination solely with mesmerizing beaches perfect for lazy vacations, you couldn’t be further from the truth – the name “Fuerteventura” is translated as “strong winds” – it’s an ideal place for all aficionados of windsurfing, sailing and kiteboarding.

What to see in Fuerteventura?

If you’re an animal lover, visit one of the Canary islands’ greatest zoos – Oasis Park, located near Playa la Lajita. It’s an unprecedented opportunity to ride a camel or admire the impressive collection of archipelago’s cacti.

Want to spend time actively? Hike to Pico de la Zarza – the highest peak of the island, which reaches 807 m and is known for riveting views over Playa de Cofete. The trip takes approximately 2 hours, and it’s recommended to head out early in the morning as the sun is too strong later on. You’ll certainly be enchanted once you get to the top of Fuerteventura!

Once you get back from the hiking trip, dive in Piscinas Naturales Aguas Verdes, natural swimming pools in the west of the island. The coastline of Fuerteventura is full of sandy beaches, perfect for recharging your batteries before going back to work. Is there a better recipe for vacations? We don’t think so.

Fuerteventura is a real paradise abounding in unblemished relaxation spots. But what else can you do there if you become fed up with soaking up the sun and getting a fresh tan?

Explore nearby islands

Devote one day to explore Isla de Lobos, an island off the northeast coast of Fuerteventura. It used to be inhabited by sea wolves. Although it doesn’t abound in sightseeing attractions, it’s a perfect spot to unwind, let your hair down and see your life from a different perspective. Why don’t you benefit from the possibility to kill two birds with one stone and visit two islands during one vacation?

If, by some miracle, you get sick of the sun and captivating nature, consider going to Casa Mané, a local art gallery. La Oliva’s Casa Mané exhibits the most gripping paintings, photographs and sculptures. Enjoy peaceful walks through the garden and purchase some artwork souvenirs from the shop. The regular collection is complemented with temporary pieces created by local artists.

You can also visit Mercado de los Tradiciones, a food market in La Oliva open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 am to 2 pm. It’s a great opportunity to taste local delicacies such as sweet fruit, craft bread and homemade jams.

I highly recommend this company. The car for 6 people was waiting for us even before the scheduled time. The drivers were super nice and the car ( minibus) clean and comfortable. Good price too and you can pay in cash or credit card if you order via website.
