The oldest of the Canary Islands, and the closest to the African coast, Fuerteventura also boasts the largest beaches and best water sports scene. Book a luxury Fuerteventura holiday and you can head to the coastal resorts for excellent beaches, golf courses, and fine dining and shopping. Inland, and on the windswept west coast, you can explore Fuerteventura’s wild side.


When To Visit

The most popular time to visit Fuerteventura falls between December and February when the average temperature is around 18 degrees. Hotter weather arrives in the summer months and with it Spanish holidaymakers and the Windsurfing World Cup.

Essentially, Fuerteventura remains an excellent destination year-round, with little rainfall and plenty of sun. In the autumn and winter, nights can be cooler, particularly in the mountainous regions, but the daylight hours are warm and pleasant.

Food & Drink

A luxury holiday to Fuerteventura lets you sample traditional Canarian food as well as dishes from around the world – and in some incredible settings. In the luxury resorts and hotels, you’ll encounter global cuisine, modern twists on Spanish favourites, and plenty of fresh local produce.

In the towns and villages, a number of authentic local dishes can be enjoyed. Make sure you try the local cheese, Majorero, the fish and seafood, and classic Canarian dishes such as papas arrugados con mojo picón (“wrinkled” potatoes with spicy sauce).

Passport & Visas

Before you book your holiday to Fuerteventura, make sure you check the entry requirements for Spain at GOV.UK. During your holiday, keep your passport on you at all times.
