A holiday home in Fuerteventura

A whole island that's a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve marks the point where the Canaries chain butts up to Africa. Like a crumpled piece of brown paper, it rises from the blustery seas in a medley of nutmeg-coloured mountains. They forge a rugged backdrop to some of the most celebrated beaches in the whole archipelago, running from the white dunes of Corralejo in the north to the wave-crashed coast of Cofete in the south-west. Fuerteventura holiday lettings are forever popular with sunseekers heading to the sands and adventurers with their eye on the oceans and the peaks.

Outdoor activities

Fuerteventura's wild outdoors

Adventure seekers will find plenty to like about Fuerteventura holiday lettings. Some sit along a wave-splattered coastline, where surfing spots are 10 a penny. It all starts in the island capital of Puerto del Rosalio, where some local instructors offer lessons to those looking to hit the rollers. There are more advanced places to conquer as you progress, up in El Cotillo, and in the more blustery town of Escaleritas, on the west coast. Staying on dry land is an option, too. You can don the hiking boots to scale the sinewy peaks of the Jandia National Park or either of the 2 miradors on the road between Betancuria and Antigua, for sweeping views of the countryside and the vast Atlantic Ocean.

Transport to and around Fuerteventura

Fly into Puerto del Rosario (FUE-Fuerteventura), the closest airport, located 11.8 mi (19.1 km) from the city centre. If you're unable to find a flight that fits your schedule, you might consider flying into Arrecife (ACE-Lanzarote), which is 46.8 mi (75.2 km) away.

How to get around

Travelling around your Fuerteventura holiday rental

There are just a couple of local bus lines running around the island of Fuerteventura. They conveniently link the main arrival point and capital, Puerto del Rosalio, with the most popular resort towns along the east coast. However, most travellers choose to rent a car. Doing that opens up the further-flung reaches of this Canary Island and means being able to choose villa rentals in Fuerteventura that are a little more off-the-beaten-track and secluded. It should be easy to find options that have a parking space on site.
