The name Fuerteventura in Spanish means 'very windy', and this describes the island perfectly. But, picture long sandy white beaches, blue sea and surfers, and that is Fuertaventura.
A Fuerteventura airport transfer, will convey you swiftly and in comfort to your chosen resort.
The capital of Fuertaventura is Puerto del Rosario - formally called Puerto de las Cabras (Port of Goats). It is relatively small but houses nearly half the island's inhabitants. It has a small port attracting cruise liners and inter-island ferries, a museum - Casa Museo de Unamuno, which was the home of the philosopher Miguel de Unamuno whilst he was in exile on Fuerteventura - a large new shopping centre, 'Las Rotondas, and numerous small shops, bars and restaurants.
The two main resorts on Fuerteventura are Correlejo and Morro Jable and they lie at opposite ends of the island.
Correlejo is situated at the north end of Fuerteventura. A Fuerteventura airport transfer to Correlejo costs from around £8.00 per person. The gleaming white beaches and gentle sand dunes are a protected nature park, which stretch 10km eastwards, so none of the natural beauty has been spoilt. The town itself is low rise. Apart from enjoying the shops, bars and restaurants, this is the area to book diving trips and lessons, hire surfing equipment, or arrange a day's deep sea fishing. Take a day excursion to Isla de Lobos, walk along the beach, have lunch at the quayside - but reserve your table as soon as you arrive, as it can get very busy - walk off the lunch, and then head back to the ferry which returns around 16.15hrs.
Morro Jable lies in the south of Fuertaventura. A Fuerteventura airport transfer to Morro Jable costs around £20.00 per person. A smart resort with magnificent beaches, not too crowded, but with a plethora of watersports for all to enjoy, such as diving, windsurfing, sailing, boat trips. If you're not into 'sea adventures', you can hire bicycles, go off road driving, play a round of golf, visit the local market (on a Thursday) or just stroll around the shops and then enjoy a lazy lunch in one of the Spanish restaurants. The nightlife mainly takes place on the seafront after dark - some good clubs, but be prepared to stay up late!
After you've had the sun, sea and sangria and fancy a day out, hire a car and go to La Oliva, which was once the capital of Fuertaventura. It's a nice little town, with an 18th century bell tower housed in the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria, and the fortress of Casa de los Coronoles. Then travel southwards to Antigua (something to tell your friends!) and visit the windmill and cactus garden, the Ermita de San Pedro de Alcantara at La Ampuyenta (to view the paintings in the chapel) and then on to Tiscamanita to view a working mill, with a snack of roasted wheat, barley and maize thrown in with the entrance fee.
There are numerous coves and beaches to explore. Fuerteventura is an island for the adventurous, energetic and who want something different to the normal sun lounging holidays. Venture further afield. Very much an active place, with a temperate climate!
