This beautiful Canary Island is home to stunning white sand beaches, rustic little towns and ancient volcanoes. In the south of the island lies Fuerteventura’s previous capital, Betancuria, a quiet village with white washed buildings and picturesque squares. Follow the coastline down and you’ll find yourself in the National Park of Fuerteventura. With a backdrop of mountains, this six mile expanse of sand dunes and clear turquoise sea is a peaceful haven on the island.
For a bit of history, the Case de los Coroneles, an old fort is worth visiting. Now housing art exhibitions, the building has maintained its 18th century grandeur. There are plenty of opportunities to engage in water sports and take a trip out into the sea on a glass-bottomed boat. Make sure you sample some of the fresh seafood in one of the restaurants lining the beach.
