Fuerteventura’s capital is the charming port city of Puerto del Rosario, but most visitors head for the beach resorts that pepper the eastern and southern coastlines. In Corralejo, in the north, you’ll find a charming old quarter, family-friendly attractions, a host of luxury resorts, and the stunning Corralejo Natural Park, an area of rolling sand dunes and picture-perfect beaches. The modern resort town of Caleta de Fuste is famed for its golf courses, lovely hotels, and vast sheltered beach, which is ideal for young children. Continue south and you can experience the charms of Costa Calma, Jandia and Morro Jable, which border the Jandia Natural Park. Enjoy shopping, dining, and sunbathing on the coast before venturing into the park to traverse volcanic landscapes and spot rare birds. Fewer resort towns are found on the western coast of Fuerteventura, but if you’re seeking a bohemian vibe head for El Cotillo, a former fishing village turned surfing hotspot. The west coast is also the place to go to find volcanic black sand beaches such as Playa Ajuy. In the centre of the island, enjoy scenic hikes and drives through the colourful mountains of Betancuria.
