Fuerteventura Holidays – Enjoy the Sunshine
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 the ideal holiday location.
There is nowhere else in the Canaries with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches (more than one hundred and fifty). Even though most of the land consists of stone and rock, these are some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. Approx 98km long and 30km across at the widest point.
Fuerteventura Holidays – Resort guides
Fuerteventura has kept the mega resorts and mass summer package holiday trade at bay, but it does have a fair share of day-trippers from the resorts of Lanzarote and Gran Canaria who come seeking a respite from the crowds. The island's two main resort towns are Corralejo and Caleta del Fuste. Fuerteventura is easily accessible from the other islands in the archipelago by ferry or air. The airport is situated close to the island's capital of Puerto Del Rosario.

La Lajita Zoo - The little fishing village on the east coast of Fuerteventura has been put on the tourist map because it offers one of the island’s main attractions, the ‘Oasis de Los Camellos’ zoo.
Oasis de Los Camellos - This animal park in the small village of La Lajita has one of the most important botanical gardens in Europe with over 2,300 varieties of cactus. The local fauna is well represented too, with four demonstrations per day
