Fuerteventura Holidays

Your Fuerteventura holiday

A volcanic island of golden sandy beaches, warm waters, and a climate that barely changes, Fuerteventura is a great holiday destination all year round.

Catch a flight to Fuerteventura where the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees Celsius, and the longest beaches in the Canary Islands are replenished with fine sand by Saharan breezes.

Spend a weekend in Fuerteventura, and pass the time in world-class resorts or on the island’s vast uninhabited expanses.

Although now a part of Spain, it was from nearby Africa that Fuerteventura’s first settlers are believed to have arrived. There was also an early visitation from the Phoenicians in the 11th Century BCE, before the Spanish took control of the island and the modern phase of its history began.

Fuerteventura's first defining encounter with Europeans came in the early 1400s, with the arrival of Juan de Bethencourt. A French explorer bankrolled by the crown of Castile, in 1402 he left La Rochelle, France, bound for the Canaries.

He first landed on Lanzarote, capturing the island from local tribes. While he was in Cadiz, asking for extra funds and reinforcements, his officer, Gadifer de la Salle, took Fuerteventura.

On his return, Bethencourt founded a capital and named it after himself, Betancuria, in 1404. The island’s name is attributed to the French explorer, who is quoted as saying: “Quelle forte aventure”, or “what a great adventure”, of his trip to the islands. A Spanish translation morphed into the current name, Fuerteventura.

With the boom in exploration later in the century, the Canary Islands became an important stopping point for journeys into the great, unknown Atlantic Ocean. Christopher Columbus sailed from the islands on his famous voyage of discovery of the Americas in 1492.

In 1859, the capital was switched to Puerto de Rosario, and a tourism boom began in the 1960s, remaining a pillar of the island's economy to this day.

Best time to take a holiday to Fuerteventura

  • The weather in Fuerteventura is tropical, though the temperatures tend to be cooler than other tropical islands, which makes it ideal for year-round visiting. The hottest month is August, with an average daytime temperature of 28°C. The coolest month is January, where daytime highs reach 21°C. December sees the most rain, but it is hardly a deterrent if you choose to visit during that month. Fuerteventura has activities that occur throughout the year, but the most popular events include Carnival and the Blues Festival, which occur in March, the kiteboarding and windsurfing world and speed championships, which are held in July, and the International Jazz Festival, which is held in September.

Fuerteventura holiday travel tips

  • By Boat

    With the Canary Islands so close together, it is easy to hop between them using ferry services. From the capital, Puerto del Rosario, there are five crossings a week to Las Palmas on Gran Canaria. There are also hydrofoil services from Morro Jable.

    You can get to Lanzarote from the capital, with ferries going to Arrecife. However, the easiest way to get to Lanzarote is from Corralejo, where regular boats leave for Playa Blanca, a journey of less than half an hour.

    By Car

    Fuerteventura is an island of isolated villages and uninhabited corners, so hiring a car is the best way to see all it has to offer. Some of the more remote attractions can only be reached by dirt road and the terrain can be quite rugged, so if you do hire a car, a four-wheel-drive vehicle could be a wise investment.

    Check out our Fuerteventura car hire offers for a more independent way to get around the island.

    Buses

    Buses link Fuerteventura's main towns and the airport. The main bus company is Tiadhe, which runs 17 routes. Frequency of service varies by route and at best is once every 40 minutes.

    For regular bus travel, pick up a Tarjeta Dinero. This card will give you a 30% discount on bus fares when you show it to the driver. Buses are a cost effective way of getting around the island and good for one-way trips.

    Taxis

    All resorts of a decent size are well-served by a fleet of white taxis. Usually old Mercedes saloons, they are a comfortable and convenient way of getting around. Although reasonably-priced for short journeys, rides between distant towns and other areas of the island can be expensive.

Insider tips for Fuerteventura travel

  • Hidden beaches in Jandia

    Rent a jeep and explore the beaches on the southern-most point of the island. The jeep is required because a regular car cannot handle the terrain. You will also have to trek down a hillside, but the destination is worth the journey.

    Antigua

    Visit this mountainside city and feed the friendly chipmunks, explore the oldest locations on the island and enjoy a meal at El Molino del Antigua, a restaurant located inside the island's last remaining windmill.

    Moro Jable Harbour

    Book a tour on a catamaran and enjoy a tour of the island from the Atlantic Ocean.

    La Marquesina

    Enjoy a fabulous meal at this small, intimate local restaurant that serves fish, seafood and chicken dishes.

    Rent a Car, Jeep or Driver

    To get the most out of Fuerteventura, renting a car or jeep is advised so you can visit the more out-of-the-way places on the island. You can also hire a driver to take you around the island and serve as an unofficial tour guide.

Where to stay in Fuerteventura

  • Found on the Jandia peninsula, the Iberostar Gaviotas Park Hotel is the ideal place for the beach-loving family. Located on the oceanfront, a couple of steps will take you onto the fine golden sands of Jandia beach.

Fuerteventura restaurants

  • Casa Isaitas (Guize, 7, Pajara) is a refreshingly homespun restaurant in the centre of the island, set in a house that was renovated in classical Canarian style in 2001, with parts of the building dating back to the 18th century. Located in the village of Pajara, the house is also a hotel. When it comes to the menu, the emphasis is on fresh local ingredients, cooked simply but well. Recommended dishes include the roasted local cheese served with spicy sauces and potato croquettes. The owners also make their own cakes and preserves.

    A barbecue hotspot, El Horno (Carretera General, 191, La Oliva) is the place to go for meat lovers. Set in the northern village of Villaverde, the restaurant's main feature is the big open charcoal grill, used to cook meat. Fish dishes are on offer as well. If you are organised, ring in advance to order the roasted goat.

    To sample all the delights the Atlantic Ocean has to offer, pay a visit to Gregorio, el Pescador (Calle Iglesia, 11, La Oliva). With a name that translates to “Gregory, the Fisherman”, it is no surprise what the big draw is at this Corralejo restaurant. Suso, the owner, is a fisherman himself and personally catches most of what ends up on diners’ plates. For something special, try the grilled octopus, which the waiters finish preparing at your table. As well as the wide range of fish and seafood, the menu features meat dishes and pasta as well.

Health & Safety

  • Vaccinations and Hygiene

    There are no obligatory vaccinations for a trip to Fuerteventura.

    Recommended vaccinations include boosters in the vaccination schedule, including polio, tetanus, diphtheria (a reduced amount of diphtheria toxoid in adults), pertussis, measles (one dose of trivalent vaccine suffices), hepatitis A (only for risky journeys), and rabies (just for stays in the rural and forested areas from spring to autumn).

    Water is potable, however for infants, bottled water is preferable.

    The Canary Islands have a good level of health infrastructure. Before leaving, request a local Social Security centre for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC – be aware this only covers emergencies).

    Safety

    Petty crime does exist on Fuerteventura. To be safe, bear the following advice in mind:

    - Only carry small amounts of cash on your person
    - Be discreet with valuable items like electronics or jewellery
    - Do not leave any important documents or valuables (like mobile phones) in vehicles
    - Refrain from walking unaccompanied at night or in darkened areas
    - Refrain from accepting drinks or food offered in bars

    Tip: It is highly recommended that you make photocopies of all your travel documents and keep the copies on you so you are prepared if the originals are stolen or lost. Keep the original documents in a safe place (such as the hotel safe) with a little money.

    When you travel, take a mobile phone with you and ensure you know the emergency telephone numbers. If you are assaulted, keep calm and do not resist or retaliate.
