A Guide to Fuerteventura – Canary Islands, Spain
Fuerteventura, the Old Canary country, is the island with the longest coastline, wide plains, gentle valleys and huge beaches.
It is a geographical no man’s land; a place for those who wish to escape from the pressures of today’s life. Fishing here is popular due to the unbelievably transparent waters and is a special attraction for a growing number of tourists who refuse to spend their holidays without any activity.
The island is separated from Africa by a corridor where sardines, tuna and sword fish are the objects of mortal persecution. The fishing sportsman can easily get his share of the booty here.
Fuerteventura has a magnificent airport with a 2,400m runway where national and international flights land and planes arrive from mainly European countries.
Fuerteventura has lovely beaches within close vicinity of its capital, Puerto del Rosario. But in the very North and South, there are two areas with beaches that can be compared with the best in the world. Especially outstanding are those of Jandia in the South and those of Corralejo in the North.
At Playa Blanca in Puerto del Rosario, there is a Parador belonging to the Office of the Secretary-General for Tourism.
