Fuerteventura is the least discovered among Canary Islands and has up to 150 km of turquoise waters and sandy beaches. Year round warm temperatures, little rainfall and a volcanic landscape provide a treat to tourists whenever they visit. The life here is relaxed and gentle with clean streets and beaches. Apart from a serene calmness, Fuerteventura offers activities to tourists
Caleta has a horse shoe shaped beach that is safe for bathing and this is a major tourists spot for holidaymakers. There is also a south beach that is landscaped into smaller bays with circular brick structures providing privacy.
Corralejo town is a nearby spot visited by tourists. It has the charm of the early days. Views of Isle ob Lobos and Lanzarote can be seen from here. The life here is slower and more peaceful than that in Fuerteventura.
El Cotillo is a village to the north of the island. This village offers great beaches, nice restaurants and interesting lagoons. El Cotillo is preferred by surfers and lots of them can be seen here.
The Jandia Peninsula is to the south of Caleta de Fuste and has 20 km of white beaches. This region has exquisite shores, coves backed by cliffs, desert like areas, lagoons and huge dunes. The Playa de Sotavento, one of Europe’s most photographed beaches, is nearby.
The American Star
Tourists to Fuerteventura have more than just beaches in their list of attractions. The shipwreck of The American Star features in most of their lists. This ship is a huge ocean going liner but under mysterious circumstances, it ran aground several years ago in a deserted cove. The reasons for this may be deem as controversial but the mere sight of this wreck is scary.
There are an ample number of museums in Fuerteventura such as the craft centre in Antigua, the arts centre in La Olivia that features several works by Alberto Manrique and La Alcogida, a live museum build around a village with the sole purpose of showing the Canarian life as it was years ago. Even otherwise, there are sculptures almost throughout the island.
