Colours of Fuerteventura

Of course, it seems very promising that we will soon be able to return on vacation abroad. With the increased use of the vaccine, confidence in the traveler is returning again. The Canary island of Fuerteventura proved to be a popular choice in the second half of the year. This Spanish island can conjure up images of vast white and golden sand beaches and sand dunes. However, there is still a lot to see on the island, and here are some of our favorites.

Fuerteventura is one of the 8 Canary Islands and the second largest after Tenerife. On the island you will find more than 50 km of beautiful beaches. The fact that it is only 100 km from the coast of Morocco has led to the fact that for centuries the sands of the Sahara have been deposited along the coast of Fuerteventura.

Corralejo

Although you may be tempted to relax by the hotel pool, a trip to the beach and the dunes of Corralejo will certainly be interesting and you will not be disappointed. Here you will find a very wide white sand beach about 11 km long. The sea is very clean, although due to the currents it is not suitable for children. The dunes are a nature reserve and are popular among beachgoers. You will find Corralejo on the north coast of Fuerteventura.

The beach with popcorn

You should wear shoes when you go for a walk on the beach with popcorn. This beach is located near Corralejo, and as you can see, the “sand” looks like popcorn. Neither soft underfoot nor relaxing, this beach is not a tourist attraction.

Many people thought that the unusual deposits were pieces of coral washed up on the shore. However, these are fossilized aquatic plants. It’s always worth a visit and it’s a great opportunity to take photos, but please don’t take them home.

On the beach of Handia, which is located in the southern part of the island of Fuerteventura, you will find many secluded places. Relax, walk along the vast, slightly shining sandy beach or swim in the crystal clear water. The sea here is suitable for the whole family, but this region of the island is also known for its Atlantic breeze.

Water sports

Fuerteventura offers excellent opportunities for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Head to the north of the island, to the seaside resort of El Cotillo, where the most experienced surfers discover the so-called “bubbles” where waves break on rocks and reefs. Playa de Sotavento in the south is the venue for the Windsurfing World Cup stage, known for its windy conditions and excellent waves.
