When going to the Canaries, you don’t have to limit yourself since island hopping between the various Canary Islands is really fun and so easy.
While most visitors pick just one destination for their beach vacation, you can have it all: Hop on a ferry or go on a plane and travel crisscross between Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote as much as you please.
Since some of the best things the island of Fuerteventura has to offer are its endless sand beaches, wild waves, and picturesque villages, you’re in for one week of relaxation as well as activity and great inspiration.
Although the net of buses is not as close-meshed as for instance in Gran Canaria or Tenerife, it’s still possible to visit most places comfortably by public transport. I’ll supply you with all the information necessary.
El Cotillo is particularly popular among surfers. The long beaches and the surge of waves are just perfect for lazy bathers and avid sportsmen alike. However, El Cotillo is also Fuerteventura’s most beautiful village and the perfect destination for a day trip.
There are actually still a couple of majestic structures reminding the visitor that the small yet picturesque town of La Oliva used to be of high significance for Fuerteventura in Ye Olden Days.
Whether the coronel’s former mansion Casa de los Coroneles, the old granary Museo del Grano La Cilla, or the church Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria – the little town between Corralejo in the west and El Cotillo on the east coast is basically like an outdoor museum.
While most visitors are landing at the island’s international airport, I entered Fuerteventura through its south gate at Morro Jable.
This way, I found myself in one of the most intriguing spots the island has to offer: A pleasant small town, the island’s largest nature reserve Parque Natural de Jandía, as well as some of the broadest’n’best beaches the entire archipelago has in store.
