Apartments on Fuerteventura
If you are looking for a beautiful vacation rental on the second largest island of the Canary Islands, you can look forward to a large selection of dreamlike holiday homes. Most of the properties can be found in and around the capital Puerto del Rosario on the west coast and in Corralejo on the northern tip of Fuerteventura. The modern holiday apartments in Castillo Caleta de Fuste south of the international island airport also offer a particularly beautiful and at the same time central location. The holiday apartments, which are often located directly on the palm-lined coastal road, offer you an impressive ocean panorama as soon as you get up.A vacation rental in a quiet location
If, on the other hand, you like it a little quieter and are looking for a vacation rental in a suitable location, you will find it both in the centre of the island and on the east coast of Fuerteventura, which is rather sparsely populated by tourists. On the hills around La Oliva, Tuineje and Antigua there are sometimes magnificent vacation rentals and villas, which not only have their own pool, but also sometimes huge plots and thus more than enough space for you and your whole family promise. An absolute insider tip are the lonely vacation rentals in the National Park Parque Rural de Betancuria on the west coast, where they get to know the island far away from the tourist streams from its most original side.
Holidays in Fuerteventura
Travelers and Activities
Thanks to its many wide sandy beaches, the Canary Island is one of the dream destinations for families who want to enjoy their holidays by the sea and under the southern sun. Wide dunes, fine sand, dreamy bays and last but not least the shallow shores make every beach day an experience for young and old and are only a stone's throw away from your holiday home. In the Oasis Park between Tarajalejo and Costa Calma you dive on over 800,000 square meters into a varied nature paradise, which offers a botanical garden, an animal park as well as a camel safari station. A special highlight for adventurers are the popular off-road jeep tours to the picturesque beach of Cofete.Fuerteventura for surfers
Fuerteventura is a Mecca for water sports. Especially windsurfers and kitesurfers get their money's worth on the east coast thanks to the constant wind and the sometimes deserted sandy beaches. While the east coast is particularly popular with windsurfers between mid-May and mid-September, surfers are drawn to the west of the island, where the surfing areas facing the open Atlantic attract with constantly high waves. Even if you want to learn how to surf, Fuerteventura is the perfect place for you, because in the numerous surf schools not far from your vacation rental you can learn in no time at all what this fascinating sport is all about.
Some theories say that Fuerteventura, together with the other Canary Islands, is the last visible testimony of the extinct island kingdom of Atlantis.
