Brilliant white sandy beaches, majestic dunes as far as the eye can see and - in the distance - the shimmering sea dotted with sailboats and surfers. ‚Fuerte‘ is particularly popular for holidaymakers looking to combine an active holiday with relaxation on the beach.
Small, picturesque villages, awe-inspiring mountain ranges, deserted landscapes and endless sandy beaches – Fuerteventura is known as the wildest and most unspoilt of the Canary Islands. Both sun worshippers and surfers will believe they have discovered paradise and every summer, the international speed surfing championships take place on the island.
‚Fuerte‘, as the island is often known, is made up of two distinct parts. To the north is the main part of the island, named Maxorata. To the south is Jandia, a peninsula created by the rim of an enormous volcanic crater. Fuerteventura lies about 120 km west of the Moroccan coast in the Atlantic Ocean. It boasts a pleasant mild climate all year round and, whilst it is not a party island, remains a favourite destination for German holidaymakers. The many small towns scattered around the island, such as Costa Calma, Jandia and Antigua, offer visitors a wide choice of restaurants and bars serving local delicacies and wines.
