MORE ABOUT FUERTEVENTURA :
Welcome to the Fuerteventura island website - Fuerteventura.com.
With three thousand hours of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast with only 100km separating the 'Punta de la Entallada' from Cape Juby in Morroco and is the second largest (after Tenerife) of all the islands.
The weather conditions of Fuerteventura are very similar to Florida and Mexico which are on the same latitude, which make this island the ideal holiday location.
There is no other island in the Canaries with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches than Fuerteventura. Even though most of the land on Fuerteventura consists of stone and rock, this island has some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. Approx 98km long and 30km across at the widest point.
In the history of time Fuerteventura is generally regarded as the oldest of all the Canary Islands and its strange contours come from various volcanic episodes.
The last eruption occurred about 7,000 years ago so you're pretty safe!
Should you wish to see some volcanic activity take a trip to the neighbouring island of Lanzarote, it's well worth the effort. See our Ferry page for details on how to get there. You can also take a short boat trip over to the small island of Los Lobos (only 6sqkm) and really get away from it all.
Water sports are very popular in Fuerteventura. Every year hundreds of surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers, and divers descend on Fuerteventura and during July the island is host to the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south.
There are many new attractions inviting tourists to discover different aspects of the Island's landscape and culture such as the Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography and Tefia Craft Village to name but a few.
