Fuerteventura’s locals like to refer to it as ‘Sunny Fuerteventura’, and to that title you could add windy and sandy and you’d sum the place up pretty well. Volcanic by birth, the lava formed rocks have been weathered over time by the wind herding tonnes of sand in from the nearby coast of Morocco and the Sahara creating long aprons of beach around much of the coast. Conditions are perfect for wind and water sports like windsurfing, kite surfing and surfing. Sailors, divers and big game fishermen are also drawn to the warm, sunny waters, home to whales, dolphins, turtles and marlin.

Second largest Canary after Tenerife, Fuerteventura has the longest, smoothest beaches, but the interior is a rocky, volcanic moonscape best explored on a dirt bike or in a four wheel drive, dune buggy style.
