The clear blue waters surrounding Fuerteventura serve as a beacon for travellers looking to experience a Spanish island paradise among the Canary Islands. On the land located within those waters, an enjoyable holiday awaits. It is easily attainable with the aid of ebookers to secure rooms in the many hotels in Fuerteventura.
Those who book their travels through ebookers will find that the crystal-clear blue water surrounding the island is hard to resist, especially with a climate that features pleasant spring-like temperatures throughout the year. With the winter Atlantic swells and the summer trade winds, the water is perfect for surfing any time of the year. Sailing around the area is also a popular attraction, with big-game fishing possible without venturing too far from the island's coast. For those who wish to remain closer to land, the conditions are perfect for scuba diving. You can even enjoy the water from land and watch for whales.
Excitement can be had in the island's interior by exploring the rugged beauty of the landscape. Tours are available for viewing the island from the safety of a 4x4. If an added thrill is desired, motorbike tours are also available. The tours are both for the safety of visitors and to add a bit of local knowledge while viewing the landscape. With a landscape of large plains against volcanic mountains and sprinkled with lavascapes, no visitor should find a lack of things to discover. Ebookers can help you find a hotel located near the inland attractions.
The island's residents haven't forgotten their Spanish roots. They still manage to enjoy the culture of the Canary Islands, celebrating festivals native to both regions. Carnival is a time for large celebrations during February and March. A specific theme is selected every year to help residents enjoy a series of galas and parades leading to the choosing of a Carnival King. Music festivals are also common on the island, with a large yearly festival held in the capital city of Puerto del Rosario that features the best of the local musical talent. Along with festivals and concerts, visitors to the island can enjoy several museums that are available for exhibition viewing. Museums open to the public include the Atalayita Archaeological Interpretation Centre and the Salt Museum. An open-air sculpture park, which is located in the capital and contains sculptures constructed by artists from around the world, may also entice art lovers.
For those who enjoy sports, matches featuring Canarian sports are viewable. These sports include the Canarian martial art Juego del Palo and Canarian wrestling, which is done within a ring of sand known as the terrero. The wrestlers attempt to knock one another down to win the match. There are 14 terreros on the island, one in almost every town.
All that's needed to begin enjoying everything the island has to offer is a quick reservation on ebookers to order airline tickets and accommodation at one of the hotels in Fuerteventura.
