  • a Spanish archipelago situated in the Atlantic Ocean.

  • This island is famous for its stunning beaches

  • and picturesque villages

  • and, like the others in this group,

  • enjoys a climate that makes it feel like perpetual spring.

  • With an average of 365 days of sunshine each year and 160 miles of coastline,

  • Fuerteventura is the perfect place to escape.

  • Just half an hour north of the international airport is Corralejo,

  • once a small fishing village and now one of the island’s largest resort towns.

  • Claim a sun lounge,

  • or explore the incredible Corralejo Dunes National Park.

  • Take a day trip to the other end of the island to Morro Jable.

  • Although this is a very popular spot with tourists,

  • you can escape the crowds at the quaint harbour which is still used by local fishermen.

  • Enjoy a drink at one of the restaurants,

  • sample local seafood, or stroll to the Jandia Lighthouse,

  • the tallest in the entire archipelago.

  • Gorgeous beaches run the length of the Jandia Peninsula reaching all the way to Costa Calma.

  • For something a little different,

  • spread out your beach towel on the pitch-black sand of Ajuy Beach,

  • actually tiny fragments of volcanic rock.

  • In the unlikely event you ever tire of the Fuerteventura’s beaches,

  • head inland to gain a deeper understanding of this island’s amazing landscapes and

  • its picturesque villages.

  • Like the other Canary Islands,

  • Fuerteventura was formed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.

  • Take the winding roads up to Mirador Morro Velosa on

  • Mount Tegu for one of the best views on the entire island.

  • Or, take a bus to Puerto del Rosario, the island’s capital.

  • Quirky statues are dotted all around this town,

  • an open air exhibition that makes for a delightful stroll.

  • With its long Spanish history,

  • Fuerteventura is also home to many romantic buildings and

  • churches such as the parish church at La Oliva and the town hall in Pajara.

  • An old fishing village,

  • today El Cotillo is perhaps the most picturesque on the entire island.

  • Stroll the old harbour which is still used by fisherman or admire the original windmills.

  • In an archipelago famous for its beaches,

  • Fuerteventura has some of the biggest and most beautiful.
