The Island of Fuerteventura
The island of Fuerteventura measuring 1.658km2 is the flattest and also the second largest of all of the Canary Islands.
The island is divided into 6 county councils: Antigua,Betancuria, Pájara, Puerto del Rosario (capitol), Tuineje & La Oliva with the island of Lobos belonging to the later county council.
The last volcanic eruptions occurred more than 10.000 years ago, which helped to create the unique landscape & beauty of the island, which still remains greatly unaltered by man.
The natural areas, which stand out most for their beauty, are; the sand dunes of Corralejo, the mountain of Tindaya one of the most geographical landmarks on the island, the volcanic fields and of course without a doubt the impressive landscapes of Cofete in Jandia.
In Fuerteventura you will not only find beautiful beaches, but you can also enjoy a wide range of culture through the islands museums, religious architecture, watch & purchase local Canarian handcraft & participate in the local fiestas which specialise in local delicacies, music & traditional dancing.
The excellent climate and the coasts of Fuerteventura invite you to participate in a wide range of sporting activities throughout the year such as; windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, golf, cycling, trekking & tennis.
Fuerteventura is a symbol of Tranquillity, miles of sandy beaches & traditional picture postcard landscapes.
