Fuerteventura is the second-largest of the Canary Islands, a string of volcanic islands belonging to Spain but lying in the Atlantic off the coast of Africa. The least populated of the Canary Islands, villas in Fuerteventura are highly popular amongst surfers in particular. The island's warm weather, its location in the Atlantic Ocean and the strong trade winds make it ideal for this sport, as well as windsurfing and sailing. The west and north sides of Fuerteventura are most popular with surfers, as waves are highest here. Scuba divers and snorkellers also tend to look for Fuerteventura apartments as a result of this ideal setting. Every year, Fuerteventura hosts the famous International Kite Festival, which is as popular as it's slightly bigger version on Fanoe island in Denmark.
The best of both worlds
Fuerteventura has a lot to offer as a holiday destination. Tourist oriented places like Jandia Playa and Corralejo are suitable for anyone who's looking to leave their Fuerteventura apartments and get active with watersports, banana boats and of course the nightlife. But Fuerteventura also offers quiet places and idyllic bays, such as the lovely Costa Calma, where it isn't as overcrowded as it is in the top regions. You can compare those regions of Fuerteventura with the Balearic islands of Formentera or Menorca. hence, Fuerteventura is an adequate travel destination for sunseekers, lovers of watersports, and those who just want to relax a little bit. Renting a holiday rental property here is also a great idea for families, as the beach in Jandia, Corralejo and on the Costa Calma are very child friendly.
Discover the amazing marine wildlife
An UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Fuerteventura is home to many animal species and a diverse population of marine wildlife. Migrating sea turtles, whales, and dolphins all pass by the Canary Islands on their annual treks. But the island of Fuerteventura has plenty to offer on land as well. The landscape is shaped by the volcanoes and lava fields – beautiful views of rocky and mountainous plains can be discovered on foot or by motorcycle, if you're up for the adventure. There are a number of tour operators that organise these expeditions. On an island as beautiful as this, wherever you go, you're sure to find your ideal villa here to suit your desires.
