Fuerteventura, the island with the oldest history, has the longest beaches of all the archipelago, of wonderful fine sand.

Only a narrow channel separates Fuerteventura from the African continent.

It is a paradise equally for spending holidays at the beach as for fishing. There are great beaches even very close to the islands capital, Puerto Rosario.

Fuerteventura is an ideal destination for surfers (the island has an important place on the windsurfing World Cup circuit) and for diving fans, thanks to the caves, tunnels, overhangs and rock formations to be found on its ocean beds.
