Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands. The capital is Puerto del Rosario and is in the north. The beach landscapes on Fuerteventura are great - a paradise for beach vacationers.


The liveliest place on the island is Corralejo, a former fishing village, also located in the north. From here you can take the ferry to the neighboring island of Lanzarote and to the small island of Los Lobos. However, a permit for Los Lobos must be applied for in advance. The number of visitors is limited as the entire island is a nature reserve. Those who like to party are better off in Corralejo than in the south of the island. In some beach bars on Playa de Corralejo, DJs play relaxed music in the evenings. So you can end the day comfortably.The popcorn beaches are also known in the north. There are a lot of calcareous algae here that look like popcorn. There is also a section with white calcareous algae at Playa de Corralejo.


The fishing village of Gran Tarajal in the southeast of the island is an insider tip. This place was my home for a while. There are hardly any tourists here. Relaxation is guaranteed at Playa de Gran Tarajal. Early risers can enjoy the sunrise on the beach. About 5 km from Gran Tarajal is the fishing village of Las Playitas. This is where the Playitas Resort is located, the leading sports resort in Europe.


In the south, the quiet resort of Costa Calma is very popular. An endless sandy beach stretches from here to Morro Jable, a former fishing village on the south coast - Jandia Playa. A perfect beach for long walks. The lonely beach of Playa de Cofete is located on the north coast. The drive there is on a gravel road, approx. 20 km from Morro Jable. The small village of Ajuy is on the west coast. There the Cuevas de Ajuy, the alleged pirate caves, can be visited. The highest mountain is Pico de la Zarza, with 807 meters and is located in the southwest. The former capital Betancuria in the west is worth seeing.


A rental car on Fuerteventura is highly recommended. Little traffic, no curves, no stress; Here you can relax and drive a car and enjoy the great volcanic landscape.


Attention: Unfortunately, robberies often occur on Fuerteventura at night. Always close the balcony door before going to bed!
