Holidays to Fuerteventura
A Fuerteventura holiday offers the chance to take things easy or lively, depending on your mood. The oldest of the Canary Islands and like Lanzarote and Tenerife, volcanic in origin, Fuerteventura boasts over 50 km of stunning gold and silver beaches. Located just under 100 km from the north African coast, Fuerteventura package holidays are a relatively new phenomenon, yet despite this the island has a number of splendid resorts and tourist attractions. We at Co-operative Travel have bargain holidays to Fuerteventura throughout the year.
With a temperate spring-like climate, little rainfall and the longest and finest beaches in the Canary Islands, bargain holidays to Fuerteventura are extremely popular with families from the UK, who flock here for the beaches. The interior also has much to offer. An arid, rocky landscape dotted with flat-roofed villages, rising into weathered volcanic mountains, this Sahara-like landscape is popular with mountain-bikers and hill walkers.
The main attraction of booking last minute Fuerteventura holidays, is its beaches, of which there are no fewer than 152 – two thirds of them composed of fine, white, natural sand, and the rest of black volcanic shingle. Fuerteventura holidays offer more than beaches and turquoise seas, however. The island also has a zoo, golf courses and water park. Game fishing, and whale, dolphin and turtle watching excursions are also popular. Fuerteventura can be quite windy in places, but this doesn’t deter the water sports enthusiasts, who book late deals in Fuerteventura to go surfing, scuba diving and wake boarding. They’re quick to take advantage of the swells on the western side of the island. El Cotillo and Jandia are both chic and lively resorts with splendid watersports and surfing facilities.
We at Co-operative Travel offer cheap holidays at numerous family resorts on the sheltered western coast, too, among them Morro Jable, Costa Caleta and Corralejo – the island’s largest resort, and a hit with families.
