Quick Guide to Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the Canary Island most frequently visited by water sports enthusiasts and there's a very good reason for that. Strong winds on some coastlines and some great surfing spots bring windsurfers, kite surfers and surfers to the island. Don't worry if you prefer dry land though, Fuerteventura holidays are not exclusively for water sports nuts, there's plenty more to offer. In fact, why not party with the locals at one of 2014 and 2015's biggest events? The February Carnival, November's International Kite Festival and New Year's Eve are the main events in the calendar - but it's a great choice for sunshine all year round, whether you're after winter sun or a summer holiday.

What to do in Fuerteventura

You can guarantee that your cheap holiday to Fuerteventura won't be short on sand! The island has 152 beaches and pretty much the whole of the rest of its surface is made up of the golden stuff too. One of the main attractions is the sand dunes and you can see plenty of them in the Corralejo Natural Dunes Park which you can explore on foot or by camel. For those looking for a party, Fuerteventura may seem a little tame thanks to the conservative Catholic standards, however, that's not to say you can't let your hair down. The main resort centres offer plenty of nightlife although it's more laid back entertainment aimed at the water sports bunch rather than the excesses of the Tenerife clubs. Plus, if you bag a last minute deal you'll have more cash in your pocket to spend on having fun!
