From Corralejo to Morro Jable, Fuerteventura is a serene paradise just waiting to be discovered. Whether it’s your first visit to this enchanting place, or you’re already coming back for more, follow these tips one by one to earn your stripes as a true Majorero at heart.
In order for you to be able to enjoy all the best places in Fuerteventura easily, Iberostar offers the best hotels in Fuerteventura, where you can set your worries aside and enjoy a perfect few days’ rest.
1. Admire the unique landscape from the air. As you look out the plane window, study the scenery and imagine the treasures waiting to be found among the golden, winding terrain.
2. Touch down in Puerto del Rosario. Follow the footsteps of the acclaimed Spanish writer Unamuno, and explore his life in exile in this laid-back capital city.
3. Head north until the road is flanked by the rolling dunes of the Corralejo Natural Park. Park and walk through the infinite and undulating valleys of sand, then dip your toes into the sea on the wild beaches.
4. Be hypnotized by the kites that dance through the Corralejo skies on windy days. Dare to try kitesurfing—this is the best place in Europe to do it! You can even attend the International Kite Festival in November.
5. Cross over to the isle of Lobos. Tread upon its dormant volcano, explore its salt mines, relax on La Concha beach and bathe in the crystal-clear waters of its natural swimming pools, as the smell of freshly cooked fish whets your appetite.
6. Return to tradition in El Cotillo, a small sailing town in the north of the island whose houses, churches and docks resist the swell of the tides and modernity. Fall in love with its palette of whites, blues and greens.
7. Enjoy the solitude of the roads, the peace of every twist and turn and the lookout points, urging you to pull over each time you crest a mountain.
14. Relax in Jandía. It combines tranquil beaches with the island’s best hotels. Enjoy the glorious sunshine, either laying by the pool or strolling through the endless stretches of sand, where you’ll feel at one with the ocean. The Jandía Peninsula is highly regarded by tourists due to its location on the southern tip of the island and its excellent beaches. It is a magical place to be enjoyed in total comfort if you decide to stay at any of our Iberostar hotels in Jandía.
15. In addition to Majorero cheese, try other island delicacies like local potatoes with mojo sauce, chengue and ropa vieja (beef stew) at restaurants such as Betancuria, Atlántico or El Saladar. For dinner, sample international cuisine at Teppanyaki or Aventura.
16. Conquer the end of the world (or at least the south of the island) at Morro Jable. Start the adventure by walking along its beach and then drive to the end of the peninsula, where the Punta Jandía Lighthouse looks out on the infinite horizon.
