Where is Fuerteventura & When to Visit?

Fuerteventura is one of the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago off the coast of Morocco.  It is the southernmost Spanish autonomous community and is a great place to visit in Europe while being tantalisingly close to Africa. 

The climate here is warmer and drier than the rest of Europe, and is lovely to visit at any time of year – especially in the winter to escape the cold further north!  It does get hot in the summer, so if you’re sensitive to high temperatures then going to Fuerteventura in the shoulder or off-season in Spring, Autumn and winter might be best for you.  

I went to Fuerteventura in January, and we had some sunshine, some rain and quite a strong wind, which was unusually poor for the time of year.  Generally speaking, you can expect good weather all year round.

How to Get to Fuerteventura

Flights to Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura Airport, also known as El Matorral Airport, is close to the capital of Fuerteventura, Puerto Rosario. The airport has flight connections to over 80 destinations worldwide, including several airports in the UK.  If you are flying from outside of Europe you may need to change flights in Spain before flying to Fuerteventura.  

Ferries to Fuerteventura

If you are already in the Canary Islands, there are regular ferries from the other islands of Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.  The ferry from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura takes around 25-35 minutes, and Gran Canaria is about 2 hours away so it is easy to travel between the islands.   There are also ferries from Tenerife which take about 6 hours to get to Fuerteventura.

Transport on Fuerteventura

Getting Around Fuerteventura by Bus

If you arrive in Fuerteventura by air, there are buses from the airport to the main bus station in Puerto Rosario, where you can catch another bus service to a different part of the island. There are bus services running between Puerto Rosario and the other main towns on the island, although they are only around once an hour. 

The easiest option is to arrange a shuttle service to take you directly to your accommodation.  It is much quicker, as you don’t have to change buses, and is only a couple of euros more expensive.  I used Shuttle Spain, which worked well for me.   

For exploring the island, hiring a car is a better option so you have more freedom and flexibility and don’t have to schedule your activities around the bus timetable.   

The sea is where it’s at in Fuerteventura! Things to do in Fuerteventura

Hiring a Car in Fuerteventura

The best way to see Fuerteventura is to hire a car for a couple of days and explore.  We hired a car from Cicar in Corralejo town centre, which cost us 30 euros for 24 hours, including all insurance and an extra driver.  This seemed like a really good deal, especially when we split the price between four people. 

We only hired a car for one day, which was great for driving around, but I’d recommend at least two days to fully explore the Island, with time to stop off along the way.

Activities in Fuerteventura to Get Your Heart Pumping

Cycling in Fuerteventura

Cycling is a great way to get around parts of the island, in particular on the north coast.  There are various places to hire bikes in Fuerteventura and you can take several days to cycle around and explore.   

There are cycle paths that often run alongside the main road, and although there are a few mountainous volcanoes on Fuerteventura, most of the island is flat.   Bear in mind though that there is very little shade here, so plan your route carefully and take plenty of water and sunscreen with you. 

If you aren’t going to have access to Wifi, is a useful app which you can download in advance to show you the route and your GPS location, or ask your bike hire company for an old school paper map!  If you prefer to explore Fuerteventura with a guide and without the effort of cycling the whole time, you could also consider an e-bike tour.   

Roads and a Mountain in Fuerteventura

Hiking in Fuerteventura

There are plenty of trails around Fuerteventura to explore, but in between the towns there are large expanses of nothing, so plan your hike carefully and make sure you know where you are going. Also bear in mind that there isn’t much shade on the island, so take plenty of water, sunscreen, and wear a hat to protect yourself from the sun. 

Again, consider downloading to help you to follow the right path while you are hiking, or get a good quality map of Fuerteventura before you go.   

Hiking a Volcano

Fuerteventura is a volcanic island, so hiking up a volcano is a challenging and beautiful way to explore the island.  You can pick up a map of the hikes to the volcanoes at the tourist information centres. This guided volcano hiking tour including wine tasting also sounds like a great option!    

Fuerteventura is known for its beaches, but there are plenty of other things to do in Fuerteventura

Quad Biking Tours of Fuerteventura

One of the best ways to explore Fuerteventura is to go off-road.  There are various companies which organise quad biking or buggy tours of the island for an adrenaline-filled adventure – I didn’t do these myself but they get great reviews!  


Watersports on Fuerteventura

There is a wide range of water sports in Fuerteventura to enjoy, from sailing to stand up paddleboarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, and surfing.  All of these activities are easy to arrange; some hotels have their own instructors and can arrange classes or watersports sessions for you or just ask one of the operators in town how to book

Surfing in Fuerteventura

I came to Fuerteventura to stay at a surf camp in Corralejo and spent a week trying to learn to surf in Fuerteventura.   The location of the islands and its beautiful sandy beaches makes it a great destination for beginners to learn to surf, as well as more advanced surfers to catch some waves.  You can arrange individual classes or sign up for a week to give you more time to practise!  

Read all about my experience learning to surf at Planet Surf Camp Fuerteventura.

More Relaxed Activities in Fuerteventura

Spot the Windmills

Dotted around Fuerteventura there are several windmills in varying states of repair.  Originally built by farmers to grind their corn using the wind power that was so prevalent here, they are now mostly unused. 

Larger windmills or “Molinos” are two-storey windmills and were used first.  Smaller, single-storey windmills or “Molinas” came later and were easier to operate and maintain.  Keep an eye out for them all over the island.

Get Lost in the Sand Dunes

The national park of Corralejo Dunas is an expanse of sand dunes that stretches for miles.  Look out for wild goats, or just wander around in the sand for a while.  You can also head down to the beach to watch kite-surfers battling against the wind.

Sand and more Sand in the Dunas National Park at Corralejo Fuerteventura

Visit an Aloe Vera Farm

I heard mixed reviews about these, so didn’t go myself, but there are several aloe vera farms and shops around the island, where you can learn about the production of aloe vera, and buy aloe vera products.  Aloe vera is great for sunburn, so if you overdo it on the beach this would be worth investigating!

Go to a Cheese Museum

We sadly ran out of time before we had the chance to visit the Cheese Museum, but I have read excellent reviews of it so wanted to include it here.  The Museo del Queso Majorero is more about the history of the island than cheese but also has a beautiful cactus garden and a shop where you can buy some delicious goat cheese to take home.

Enjoy Local Cuisine

OK so it’s not an activity per se, but eating is definitely one of my favourite things to do in Fuerteventura!  Food on the Canary Islands is delicious – so try to tear yourself away from the picture menus and pizza joints and try the local specialities. 

YOU MAY ALSO LIKE: How to Find the Best Local Food & Drink

Dishes such as goat stew, ropa vieja (meat or seafood stew), papas arrugadas (salty boiled potatoes with mojo sauce), goat cheese and delicious mojo (mo-hoe) red pepper sauce (which is seriously addictive!) are some of my favourite foods from Fuerteventura.  Unsurprisingly, seafood on Fuerteventura is also incredible! 

Papas Arrugadas (Wrinkly Potatoes) a Typical dish in Fuerteventura

Where to Eat in Fuerteventura

My favourite restaurants in Fuerteventura were Meson Las Tejas (Corralejo) which had spectacular seafood mixed grills, Bar La Lonja (Corralejo) which had an excellent range of good value tapas, and Bar Parada (Morro Jable) which had killer local specialities like goat stew.  

To satisfy your sweet tooth, don’t miss French bakery El Goloso de Lajares (Lajares) for beautiful and delicious cakes, quiches and sandwiches.

Other Places to Visit in Fuerteventura

As I said; I based myself in Corralejo but hiring a car to explore the island is a great way to see what else Fuerteventura has to offer.  If you have several days to explore you will be able to see much more than I did, but this is a taste of what to expect.

Explore Isla Lobos

On the north side of Fuerteventura, close to Corralejo, is Isla Lobos, named after the sea lions (lobos marinos in Spanish) who used to live there. 

The sea lions are gone, but the island is home to lots of seabirds, and a short ferry ride to the island gives you access to great places to snorkel or hike around the island in a couple of hours.  There are various ways to get to Isla Lobos, including a ferry, water taxi, joining a tour or kayaking to the island.

Kayak Fuerteventura offers a sea kayaking excursion to Isla Lobos, although I didn’t do this as it was very windy when I was in Fuerteventura, the trip gets great reviews on Trip Advisor, and sounds like fun for more adventurous types!

Check out these tours on GetYourGuide for other Isla Lobos excursions:


El Cotillo

El Cotillo is a tiny town on the coast, about 30 minutes’ drive from Corralejo.   The beaches are great for surfing, or you can just wander the streets, and eat some amazing food at one of the restaurants here.  It’s on the west coast of the island so is a lovely spot to watch the sunset – although it was quite cloudy when we were there!

El Cotillo Fuerteventura A great day trip from Corralejo or to surf

Morro Jable & Punta Jandia

On the southern tip of Fuerteventura, Morro Jable is a pleasant town with some excellent restaurants, a turtle nursery and one of the best beaches in Fuerteventura. 

The wide sand stretches out along the coast and is a wonderful place to soak up the sun or stroll along the beach.  It is on the edges of Jandia National Park which is also worth exploring if your hire car will handle it, or a quad bike tour might be a better bet so you don’t end up paying for damage to the car! 

Further along the coast is Punta Jandia Lighthouse which you can drive to along a dirt road.  There is a museum and a small shop there, but bring water and snacks with you in case it’s closed.      

Pozo Negro (Blackpool!) 

Pozo Negro is a tiny little fisherman’s village, south of Puerto Rosario.  Translated as Black Pool, it did remind a little of Blackpool in England, with biting winds on the day we visited in January! 

This is a black sand beach, common in Lanzarote but more unusual here on Fuerteventura.  On calmer days, have a beer or a coffee at one of the little cafes in the bay, or pick out your favourite black and white stones on the shore.

Where to Stay in Fuerteventura

Hostels in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura isn’t really a backpacker destination, so hostel options are limited.  In the south of the island, accommodation is mostly in resorts or hotels, or independently with Airbnb. 

However, in Corralejo in the north of the island, there are plenty of surf camps which offer hostel-style accommodation with or without the surf classes if you wish. 

However, as one of the best things to do in Fuerteventura is to learn to surf, I highly recommend booking a surf camp to have some lessons like I did at Planet Surf Camp.


Hotels in Fuerteventura

I stayed in the north of Fuerteventura in Corralejo which has more things to do than in the south which seemed to be more beach resort hotels.  If you are looking for fun activities in Fuerteventura, I’d suggest staying in Corralejo where there is more action! 

The south of the island is still easy to reach if you hire a car.  Corralejo Lodge is at the lower price range but it is clean and quiet and has a swimming pool.  Katis Villas Boutique Fuerteventura is more upmarket and has a pool, sauna and spa available, as well as various other activities.  You can browse all hotels in Fuerteventura here.    


Airbnb in Fuerteventura

There are plenty of options for Airbnb in Fuerteventura, such as this apartment close to the centre of Corralejo which also has a swimming pool, or this great value private room with private bathroom.  You can check all options for Airbnb here.   If you have never used Airbnb before, use this link to sign up & get up to $40 credit to use on your first trip.   Read more about how it works in my full Airbnb guide or click below for your Airbnb coupon:

Winter sun holidays to Fuerteventura with kids

There’s nothing like realising that I’ve got no trips booked to send me running for the nearest browser to check out the best low-cost deals (or idly spinning the globe pondering my very long wishlist) – and when it comes to winter sun, I often find myself pondering cheap holidays to Fuerteventura.

contains affiliate links*

The Canary Islands have been one of our regular destinations for winter sun with kids – my daughter’s first ever trip was to Lanzarote, we’ve also explored Gran Canaria and I’ve been to Tenerife several times, so I’m already sold on the idea of Fuerteventura with kids for October half-term (or February!).

So why choose Fuerteventura, the second biggest of the Canary Islands? As well as great villas and hotels which won’t break the bank, plus fabulous food even on a budget, this is what’s tempting me to book a holiday, the top things to do in Fuerteventura with kids.

The weather

Average temperatures of 24C in October are blissful compared to the UK…  and by February, when London’s average high is about 8C, I feel like I haven’t seen daylight for approximately 100 years.

You can be unlucky even off the coast of Africa, and Fuerteventura – as the name (‘strong winds‘) suggests – is a windy island. If you’re looking at summer holidays to Fuerteventura, that does cool the sun down nicely though.

The beaches

Is it a proper winter sun holiday with kids if you don’t visit the beach? And as well as having the longest beaches in the Canaries, there are 152 of them across the island.

Fuerteventura’s beaches are ideal for kids too – some have very shallow water such as Playa del Castillo and Playa del Matorral, as well as the beautiful Playa La Concha near El Cotillo.

If you’re looking for ideas of more adventurous things to do in Fuerteventura for kids than sandcastles, it’s also a great location for windsurfing and kitesurfing, thanks to the winds – ideal for teens and active tweens.

Playa de Sotavento, surrounded by sand dunes, is one good spot, while clambering on the sand dunes of Corralejo would definitely be a hit with my daughter too.

Acua Water Park

This big water park in Fuerteventura is the only one on the island. Previously called Baku, Acua Water Park is set in Corralejo, with wave pools and a children’s splash pool as well as scarier slides and rides.

There’s crazy golf as well, which my daughter loves (and is impressively good at) plus 10-pin bowling if you don’t want to spend all day in the water.

It’s open from April for the main summer season until around the end of October, so if you’re considering visiting Fuerteventura in February half-term, that’s one to save for next time though.

You can buy tickets online here

Take a boat trip

We’ve taken boat trips in Gran Canaria as we cruised along the coast to Puerto Mogan and now my daughter’s older, I’d love to try one of the dolphin and whale spotting trips.

This 90-minute dolphin spotting trip is family-friendly and sounds perfect – or this dolphin-spotting cruise is longer with time to snorkel and a spot of tapas as well.

Or you can combine a trip to Isla de Lobos with a chance to see dolphins: this option lets you spend around five hours out on the water, snorkelling and kayaks included (as well as lunch!), while a glass-bottomed catamaran trip  is also tempting. Watch fish through the glass base before heading into the water to snorkel.

There’s the Oceanarium Explorer glass bottomed submarine as well but that has more mixed reviews (and I’m always reluctant to recommend swimming with sealions) but it seems another popular option.

Visit Isla de Lobos

As well as the boat trips around Fuerteventura and near Isla de Lobos, it’s tempting to head to the island itself.

A nature reserve since 1982, there are no permanent inhabitants – the name ‘Wolves Island’ comes from the monk seals that once lived here, known as sea wolves.

There are walking trails all over the island, or you can chill out on Playa de la Concha, a small sheltered lagoon with a sandy beach. Bring everything you’ll need as there are no shops to pop to once you’re there.

There’s a speedy water taxi – waterproof bag advised for this 15 minute trip – or you can take the ferry for a slightly more sedate trip that takes about the same amount of time.

Head to Oasis Park zoo

Animals are always a hit with my daughter and while this Fuerteventura zoo isn’t the cheapest around, there’s an impressive amount to see.

Along with flamingos, hippos, monkeys and giraffes, plus birds, reptiles and sea lions, you can also join a camel safari (for an extra fee) and ride through the palm groves outside the park as well as an option to meet the lemurs (again, for an extra fee).

There’s also a botanical garden attached with over 2,300 types of cacti and free buses run to the park.

There’s a focus on education and conservation at Oasis Park, as well as a section on ethics on the website, which is reassuring to see as well.

You can buy entrance tickets with free cancellation, along with options including the camel ride, here

Discover Fuerteventura’s wild side

On every Canary Island I’ve visited, I love getting away from the tourist resorts on the coast to discover the wilder side – the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote, the black sands and lush green north of Tenerife (not to mention its own volcano), and the mountainous interior of Gran Canaria.

The island is only around 60 miles long and under 20 miles wide, and only takes two hours to drive from end to end, so you could hire a car to explore the island’s quiet roads – there are more goats than people on Fuerteventura.

Discover the historic town of Betancuria, its white buildings sitting in the shadow of the mountains, or secluded stretches of sand like Juan Gomez beach towards the south-western tip of the island.

I love the idea of discovering the traditional windmills dotted around too – apparently those which are one storey high are ‘female’, called molinas, and the two-storey versions are ‘male’ known as molinos, with lots near the oldest village on Fuerteventura called Antigua.

There is car rental at Fuerteventura’s airport but you can also rent cars in most of the major tourist centres if you want to do a day trip – I found options for £23 for a day.

If you don’t fancy driving at all, there are day tours to explore – this off-road tour of Fuerteventura is definitely on my list, heading to Jandia National Park and stopping at one of the island’s secluded beaches.

Visit Lanzarote

The two islands are so close that I’ve seen Fuerteventura when we’ve stayed in Playa Blanca on Lanzarote – I’ve contemplated taking the ferry to Fuerteventura quite a few times but have never quite managed to.

So while there’s plenty to entertain on Fuerteventura for kids, I love the idea of a quick hop back with the ferry to Playa Blanca, wandering along the waterfront with the beach on one side and restaurants on the other – you can see some of my favourite places to eat in Playa Blanca with kids here.

Or further down is Marina Rubicon with its market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The crossing takes around 30-45 minutes with three to four boats per day.

Planning a family holiday in Fuerteventura

If you’re looking for cheap flights to Fuerteventura, there are some great options from the UK, especially if you’re looking for a package deal.

As well as TUI and Jet2, you can also find some of the low-cost airlines with flights to Fuerteventura from the UK, including easyJet out of Gatwick and Ryanair from Stansted – although after my last experience, personally I’m not convinced that particular airline will top my own list…

Plus if you’re looking for the extra protection from a package deal, there’s a choice of family-friendly hotels in Fuerteventura as well as villas and self-catering apartments to choose from.

Top Things to do in Fuerteventura

1. Laze on the beaches

Fuerteventura is home to some of Europe’s most impressive stretches of sand. With soft sands from white to gold and waters a stunning shade of teal, a day on the beach is no doubt the best thing to do in Fuerteventura. Although it has often been hailed as the windy island, many beaches now have man made wind shelters making them ever more enjoyable. Here are some of the best beaches in Fuerteventura


Stretching 11km along the north coast, Corralejo is best known for its shapeshifting sand dunes and views out to Isla de Lobos. You’ll find this beach is always peaceful, clean and well maintained as it’s protected within a national park.


Playa de Cofete

This remote beach is well worth the hair-raising drive to get there as breathtaking scenery and an edge-of-the-world feel awaits. The waters here are wilder making them more suitable for surfers than swimmers, but the beach itself is a great place to enjoy serenity. You’ll also find Villa Winter located here.


Playa el Castillo

Playa el Castillo is a horseshoe shaped bay in Caleta de Fuste. Its calm waters and sheltered feel make it excellent for families and light swimmers.

Morro Jable

Approximately 4km long this lovely beach boasts white sand and clear waters. The gentle waves and soft sands make it excellent for relaxing.


2.Try some watersports

Fuerteventura is legendary amongst watersports enthusiasts due to many of its beaches benefiting from superb waves and great conditions for kitesurfing and surfers. There are also many calmer beaches providing opportunities for jet skiing, paddle boarding, snorkelling and many more water sports. Throughout the island are sports centres offering classes and tuition for all sports, at all levels such as sailing, scuba diving, catamaran, water skiing and much more.

3. Discover the many things to do in Corralejo

Corralejo and its sand dunes are undoubtably Fuerteventura’s top attraction. Located on the northern tip of the island, this 11km long stretch has been a national park since 2002. Well maintained and scarcely crowded, the dunes are a great place to relax and uncover a plethora of indigenous animals. As well as relaxing on the dunes there are many things to do in Corralejo including jeep safaris, aquapark, restaurants, cafes and a wonderful selection of bars.

4. Take the ferry to Isla de lobos

Opposite Corralejo and just 10 minutes by ferry, Isla de Lobos is a small island with a plethora of plants, indigenous animals and stunning landscapes to explore. With 13km of coastline you can walk, explore, or simply relax on its wonderful beaches, gazing back at Fuerteventura. The last inhabitants were the lighthouse keeper and his family who left once this became automated in the 60’s making the lighthouse well worth a visit. Its uninhabited feel and volcanic caldera certainly provide enough beauty to occupy hours.

5. Explore Betancuria

This charming interior village nestled in a valley was founded in 1405 and originally intended to protect inhabitants from intruders. It was tragically destroyed in 1593 before being rebuilt and becoming the island’s capital until 1834. Here you’ll find quaint low-rise buildings made of volcanic stone and palm tree lined cobbled streets in which to wander. A day trip here offers museums, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and beautiful buildings such as the Santa Maria 17th century church; or you can simply absorb the slow pace of life.

6. Spend the day at Oasis park – things to do for families

Fuerteventura offers many things to do for families, the most popular of which is a day trip to Oasis Park. One of the Canary Islands’ largest zoos, the park is home to fascinating animals and wonderful botanical gardens with an impressive cactus collection. The park is also dedicated to conservation of wildlife and biodiversity making it a great place to learn. Open Monday to Sunday 9am – 6pm. Zoo entrance from 35€ per adult and 20.50€ per child. Camel safari 12€ per adult and 8€per child.

Fuerteventura’s Acua Water Park offers another great day out for families. The park in Corralejo offers plenty of water slides, pools and restaurants as well as kids clubs and relaxation areas.

7. Go Jurassic at Cuevas Ajuy

Cuevas Ajuy are a collection of coastal caves formed over millions of years. These Jurassic style caves display several layers of rock types and unique shapes made by solidified lava. The caves are the oldest rock formation in the Canary Island and once a secret hideout for pirates. The caves are now a great place for a brisk afternoon walk and an exciting exploration opportunity for geology enthusiasts.

8. Shop for souvenirs in a local market – shopping in Fuerteventura

The best part of any Canary Islands holiday is shopping in wonderful local markets, and Fuerteventura is no exception. Mercado de Los Tradiciones is the most popular market in Fuerteventura and hosted in a unique location at Colonels house in La Oliva. Buy homemade jams, organic produce, Majorero cheese and locally made souvenirs (runs Tuesday and Friday 10am – 2pm). There is also a more low-key market hosted at Acua Park car park in Corralejo which operates Tuesday and Friday 9am – 2pm.

For additional shopping in Fuerteventura there are some fantastic shopping centres in many of the resorts. Centro Commercial Atlantico Fuerteventura in Caleta de Fuste is one of the largest offering popular clothing brands.

9. Taste the local Majorero cheese

Rumour has it there are more goats than people in Fuerteventura, whether you believe it or not, the goat’s cheese here is second to none. Nearly as protected as France’s champagne, it is the only place you can find this wonderful cheese. You can find it in many local shops and restaurants who often serve it grilled with a little honey – perfection!

To take your cheese obsession a little further, a visit to the museum of cheese where Majorero is made, is one of the best things to do in Fuerteventura. The museum shows how the cheese is produced as well as giving a fascinating insight in to the island’s history. There’s also a pretty windmill and tranquil botanical garden making for an excellent photo opportunity. Open 9.30am – 5pm.

10. Go for a hike

Fuerteventura is blessed with plenty of natural beauty and hiking is a rewarding way to experience it. You’ll find 86 hiking trails which include volcanic paths, coastal trails and hikes to stunning view points. Popular walks in Fuerteventura include the 8km trek from Corralejo to Lajaras through volcanic terrain, the challenging hike up to Pico de La Zarza (the island’s highest point), and the ramble up to Mirador Morro Velosa viewpoint. Trails are well marked with coloured stripes rated by GR (great routes), PR (small routes) and SL (local Trails). With special permission you can also climb the sacred Montana de Tindaya. It is the oldest mountain on the Canary Islands and considered sacred by the indigenous Majorero people.

More Fuerteventura attractions – unusual things to do in Fuerteventura

Villa Winter

This intriguing building, located on Cofete beach, is worth visiting for the stunning views from its watchtower. Shrouded in mystery, the building was rumoured to have been a secret Nazi base, although this is not confirmed. Built by German engineer Gustav Winter in 1937, the building houses a winding network of cellars, a watchtower and terrace where stunning views await. The villa is now privately owned, and visits need to be pre-arranged.

Finca Canarias Aloe Vera

One of the more unique things to do in Fuerteventura, a visit to Finca Canarias is a memorable experience. The plantation at Gran Tarajal is home to over 4000 Aloe plants, hundreds of cacti and various olive trees. A guided tour will display the farming methods used to grow the plants as well as the factory processes to make it into wellness products and skincare. The gift shop offers a huge array of skin care products all organically and naturally produced. Open Monday – Saturday 9am – 6pm. Official website.

Poblado de la Atalayita

Poblado de la Atalayita is an archaeological site located in the Pozo Negro valley. The large site showcases preserved aboriginal houses which were built in to caves. There are now around 115 building remains with more still to be uncovered. The site offers a fascinating insight in to the history and anthropology of Fuerteventura and the Mahos natives. The site itself is open to public visitors and you can freely walk around. There is a visitor centre offering a great source of information and a useful insight in to how residents would have lived.   Visitor centre open 10am – 6pm Tuesday to Saturday.

Natural Pools

Natural swimming pools are a great place to relax in a natural environment. These pools are formed by seawater flooding in to natural rock formations usually created by volcanic activity. As the water is constantly recycled the waters are always, clear, clean and refreshing. The surrounding rocks are also a great place to dry off and catch the sun. Most of these natural pools now have man made steps and walkways to make visiting much accessible.

American Star

For any naval enthusiasts the shipwreck of SS America is a real treat. Built in 1940 by naval architect William Francis Gibbs, this ocean liner ran aground during a fierce storm in 1994 where it found its resting place on Playa de Garcey beach on Fuerteventura’s west coast. Only a small section of the bow remains, and this can only be visited during low tide, but a fascinating site to behold.

Colonels House

This lovely 18th century hacienda was declared a site of cultural interest in 1985 and one of the best free things to do in Fuerteventura. Once a home to military officials it is now the longest preserved home on the island and a truly beautiful building. Located in La Oliva, it houses an historic exhibit and a market every Tuesday and Friday with a tempting art gallery just a short walk away (Case Mane).

Casa Mane art gallery

For art lovers, this wonderful gallery houses an exceptional collection of Canary Islands’ art. That includes paintings, photography, pottery and sculptures both old and new. Open Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturdays 10am – 2pm. Official website.

Children bathe in the so-called natural pool, a limited area of ​​the coast with natural sea water, where complete protection from possible waves is provided

Experienced surfers catch a 4-meter wave. Surfing on the islands can be practiced all year round, and it is better to rent a board and a wetsuit on the beach for 20-30 euros per day

Apartments overlooking the Teide

By sunset, the beaches are empty and everyone moves inside the city to have dinner and relax further

The sun sets very quickly, almost vertically, and immediately becomes dark, in December at about 6 pm

But there are natural pools

We return home along the motorway, where you can comfortably move between cities at a speed limit of 120 km/h. Ring traffic is organized almost everywhere

In the morning we leave for the highway to get to the Teresitas beach with imported Sahara sand. We pass through the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife along the coast. There are already traffic lights here

The beach and the fishing village of San Andres on a hillside just 10 kilometers from the capital

Low tide

In winter, you need to carefully monitor the weather to enjoy this place. And then you can come and it will rain and +14. Lucky 9 today0005

An oil rig is visible not far from the shore. Recently, oil deposits were found here, but the locals are afraid of a leakage of raw materials, as was the case in the Gulf of Mexico, and against such a neighborhood

I still don’t understand whether they are extracting something there or just developing it

In order not to return along the same road back , we make a detour through the mountains and climb higher along the serpentine

At an altitude of 900 meters, the temperature dropped from 22 to 9 degrees. At the top, a riot of vegetation and a view of Teide

There are only a few houses in the village. Here the hostess dries the cobs of corn.

The next day, we start climbing to Teide along the two-lane winding road TF-21. Having passed the village of Vilaflor, at an altitude of more than 1.5 kilometers, we drive into clouds

We continue our way through coniferous forests

There are no roadsides on such roads, so for rest and admiring the views we have to stop only at observation platforms. Red volcanic soil

And if you look towards the ocean, you will see mountain slopes planted with vineyards

In the background, near the coast, you can see greenhouses, which at the beginning were photographed from an airplane

On the territory of the Teide National Park. The landscape changed to almost deserted

Due to the unique natural conditions, many directors shoot their fantasy films here, including Star Wars. Now a German film crew has settled here.

There is very little left. You can already see the lift legs

A cable car in both directions costs 26 euros. But this is not yet the Teide peak

To climb to a height of 3718 meters, you need to overcome 160 meters on foot. Moreover, permission to climb must be issued in advance and presented at the top along with a passport

Volcano crater. You can see equipment that probably registers activity

Warm and smelly jets of gas sometimes burst out from under your feet

It’s quite windy at the top and +8. But a 360-degree panorama opens up, the entire island is visible. And it could be snow. On the right you can see the road we were on. As always, the photo does not capture the full scale

On the way back, we accidentally stop by the alleys of Vilaflor. No fences! A tangerine tree grows near the entrance to the house (very tasty, by the way), and there are vineyards around

Punta Brava, a village in the north of Tenerife

Here you can endlessly stand on the shore and watch the waves break on the rocks

View to the left

Outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz near Loro Parque. It was hard not to come here, because this park is advertised all over the island and on every trash can. I even thought that it was state-owned

But I googled it, no – private. And it was founded many years ago by a visiting German who fell in love with this island. Loro is Spanish for parrot. It used to be a parrot park that has grown into a virtual zoo with many animals. Main entrance

King penguins. We slowly drive along the moving path and look at everything inside. One dived below

Everything is very well organized and after one show you immediately unobtrusively get into another. Dolphins ride a girl from the audience

A pool with killer whales. Nothing special was shown, but in itself it is amazing how a person could tame such huge predators. Where there are white stickers on the seats – this is a splash zone, where it is better not to poke your head without a raincoat

At some point, you get to a 15-meter high wooden staircase where birds fly almost in their natural habitat. The space around the perimeter is limited by a grid


There is not only a zoo, but also laboratories that care for animals and conduct various researches

Candelaria, a small town near the capital

Beaches with black volcanic sand 9003 9003

Narrow cozy streets with cafes and colorful houses

But most of all, Candelaria is known for its basilica

Where to go in December 2020? in 2020?

The question of where to go on vacation in December is asked by much fewer tourists than in November or January. Most of our compatriots at this time are preparing for the main family holiday of the country, which means that even at the most expensive seaside resorts at this time there are still quite loyal prices. At the same time, in most of them, the climatic conditions are already the most suitable for recreation.

Where to go to the sea in December

If you already throw New Year’s affairs, then for the sake of the hot sun and warm water in the cleanest ocean. This is how travelers think and, first of all, consider destinations that are ready to provide an opportunity to sunbathe on the beach. Most of them are located in Southeast Asia, so it is better to plan your tour thoroughly.


Tourists who prefer to go to this exotic country have become more and more in recent years, so at the beginning of winter the influx of tourists here is impressive. But Vietnam is not as small as it might seem at first glance, and is ready to receive guests on the island of Phu Quoc and in the cities of Mui Ne, Phan Thiet. Here, the air temperature during the day does not fall below +26 degrees, and the water warms up to at least +24.

In addition to excellent weather, tourists are attracted by the unique nature of the country, clear water and ancient architectural sights. Special attention should be paid to the original fishing villages, which have preserved the traditions of the Vietnamese. If you prefer a “lazy” holiday, head straight from the beach to the local spas. They carry out treatment with acupuncture, herbal medicine and, of course, massage.


  • Prices for entertainment and accommodation are still low compared to other similar destinations, although they are growing every year.

  • One of the safest countries in the region.

  • Wide selection of fresh fruits and seafood.


  • The number of tourists is quite large.

  • The local cuisine is very different from the European one and is often not liked by visitors.

  • Long flight. Direct flights from Moscow last at least 9 hours, connecting flights can take up to 16 hours.

Every city in Vietnam is beautiful in its own way. The clear sea water around Phu Quoc makes it possible to engage in inexpensive but very spectacular diving or snorkeling. In Mui Ne and Phan Thiet, there are many schools of kiting and windsurfing. Where it is better not to go at the beginning of winter is the popular Nha Trang. The risk of heavy rains here remains almost until the end of the month, as well as storms on the best beaches.

Sri Lanka

The tourist season at this time of the year in Sri Lanka is in full swing, especially in the southwestern part of the island. Prices for tours to Colombo, Tangalle, Hikkaduwa, Bentota are increasing dramatically, so it’s better to plan your trip in advance. The weather conditions here are the most successful in order to peacefully sunbathe on beautiful beaches: the air and water temperature rises to +28 degrees and above. It can still rain at night, but in the second half of December the situation will stabilize.

The landscapes of Sri Lanka at the beginning of winter become even more vivid and unusual. At the beginning of winter, hundreds of migratory birds fly here, whales swim to the shores of the island, and turtles gather on the beaches of Tangalle. Add to this a good infrastructure and a wide variety of hotels (from budget hostels to five-star chain hotels) and you will understand that any company is provided with a comfortable stay.



  • In the first half of December, the weather can bring unpleasant surprises.

  • Expensive and limited internet.

  • Even at the height of the tourist season, the waves of the ocean remain quite large, but this fact will only please surfers.

As for prices, with the influx of tourists, they are expected to rise. And the entertainment program here is quite limited. Mostly people come here for a good excursion program and viewing the most beautiful sights, as well as for the sake of the actual seaside vacation.

Goa, India

The beginning of winter in the state is characterized by dry, hot weather. The sun shines brightly every day, and the air temperature rises to an average of +32 degrees. The water is also very comfortable for swimming – about +29 degrees at any resort and beach in the state. Naturally, in such conditions, a beach holiday becomes the main entertainment, but in addition to it, you can visit the most beautiful national parks, see colonial architecture or visit one of the health centers.

The last month of the year is also good because literally every week the locals celebrate their traditional holidays and organize festivals. Most of them have remained since the days of colonial India, so they will also be close to European tourists: the day of Francis Xavier, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, Catholic Christmas – all this is complemented by national flavor and acquires unique features.


  • Low prices for groceries, accommodation, shopping.

  • Comfortable weather conditions.

  • Good knowledge of English by the locals.


  • Some sanitation issues, for example tourists are better off buying clean bottled water.

  • Internet problems.

Holidays in the state of Goa can be called a classic tropical vacation. Delicious fruits, green palm trees, warm waves and fresh sea breeze are available literally on any beach. But if you want a more intense program, go on an excursion to the jungle, to waterfalls or to national parks.

Where to go in December without a visa

Obtaining a visa, even in a simplified regime, can require a waste of time and money. Therefore, some prefer to go to one of the visa-free countries. Some options may even seem exotic, although in reality they are simply not advertised enough and the situation can change at any time.


This country scares young tourists, but experienced travelers already know that the beaches of Mauritius are a great option for an exotic vacation. The weather on the island is great! The air temperature does not fall below +30 degrees, and the water warms up to at least +28. At the same time, humidity remains quite high, so that all vegetation blooms in abundance: from lush bushes to fruit trees.

What can overshadow the holidays of a simple tourist, but will definitely please surfers, are the high waves on most beaches. Their height can be up to seven meters, so if you know that you won’t risk entering the water in such conditions, look for a hotel with a good pool. For those who prefer scuba gear or a snorkeling mask to surf, there is also something to do. The Indian Ocean is home to a huge number of fish and marine animals.


  • Good transport accessibility throughout the island. City buses run according to the schedule, never late.

  • The absence of a difference in hourly trains allows you to acclimatize faster.

  • Great beaches!


  • Quite high prices not only for tours and flights, but also for everyday goods.

  • Weak Internet, which is hardly enough to work.

  • The high cost of gasoline makes car rental expensive.

In addition to the beach and the gentle Indian Ocean, other surprises await tourists. What are only the Black River Gorge National Park, where the most beautiful waterfalls and lakes are located, and Kazela Park – a habitat for wild predators and turtles that you can feed.


If Southeast Asia has had time to get bored, you can go to the Caribbean, where the weather is also comfortable in December. In Cuba, you can choose to stay at several resorts at once: Santiago de Cuba, Havana or Varadero. In any case, the air temperature will not go below +27 degrees, as well as water. It rains only a few times at this time of the year, although cloudiness is much more common. The only thing you need to be prepared for is cool evenings, when it becomes uncomfortable without a light jacket.

In general, spending a vacation in Cuba means making it bright, incendiary, noisy and fun. A variety of entertainments are available to tourists: diving, snorkeling, fishing in the open sea, excursions to ancient sites and national parks and, of course, daily Caribbean dances with a glass of delicious cocktail in hotels, restaurants, clubs.


  • A unique flavor that does not leave indifferent guests of the country.

  • Wide range of entertainment.

  • The cleanest beaches and water.


  • Shopping in local stores will be scarce, and in some places also inconvenient.

  • A large number of insects, snakes and other unpleasant creatures.

  • A large time difference makes it difficult to quickly adapt.

More recently, Cuba was closed from most of the world, but today it is a real tropical time, where there is a huge number of hotels of different stars and orientations, a huge selection of entertainment, a unique culture, cuisine and the endless goodwill of the locals. It is pleasant to spend time here both with family and a noisy group of friends.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic at the beginning of winter is not only comfortable weather, clean beaches, high service, but also relatively low prices, at least compared to other months popular with tourists. The most pleasant vacation can be spent in the resorts of Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, Santo Domingo. The air temperature during the day here is kept within + 28-29 degrees, and the water in the sea warms up to + 27-28. Rains are still a possibility, but their frequency and duration are noticeably reduced.

The main attraction of the country is the white-sand beaches, but besides sunbathing, there is something to do here. Surf and catch a cool wave, dive into the waters of the Caribbean Sea to explore underwater reefs or view shipwrecks, fly over the endless water surface on a parasail – the choice of entertainment for any age is simply huge. Special attention should be paid to the rich excursion program.


  • Excellent level of service.

  • Large selection of hotels.

  • At the beginning of winter, many holidays are celebrated in the country and national festivals are held.


In addition to the entertainment already listed, it is at the beginning of winter that you can see the migration of humpback whales off the coast of the Dominican Republic. This spectacle impresses even experienced tourists, so the opportunity should not be neglected.

Where to go with children in December

Parents of young travelers have to be as picky as possible when choosing a winter holiday destination. It is not enough to find good weather. It is important to think about what to feed the child during the holidays, where to take them and how to swim safely in the sea, where the waves are splashing.


Almost throughout the kingdom, comfortable weather is established for relaxing on the beach. The sun during the day heats the air up to +32 degrees, and the water in the sea up to +29, although most of the time it is still hidden behind thick clouds. Rains are unlikely, but if they happen, then at night and for short periods.

The best resorts for families with children of different ages are Hua Hin, Khao Lak, Koh Samui. If you want to go to Phuket, rich in infrastructure and entertainment, Karon and Kata beaches are suitable.

In addition to clean sand and water, young guests will appreciate water parks, zoos, small farms and aquariums. Each city has its own set of adventures, and you should not forget about the age of the traveler. The student will be able to master long-distance travel and boat trips, which means there is a chance to visit several islands. Babies will like a little Hua Hin more.


  • The friendliness of the residents.

  • Good knowledge of local English, and in large resorts – and Russian.

  • Clean beaches and calm sea.


  • Thai cuisine is quite specific, but for a child, you can always ask for simple rice and chicken without spices.

  • Tour prices are quite high.

What can be found at any resort in the country is blood-sucking insects, stinging arthropods and other creatures. We will have to try to protect the baby from them as much as possible.

Tenerife, Spain

This sea direction at the beginning of winter can be called the coolest. During the day, the air temperature in the south of Tenerife rises on average to + 21-24 degrees, the water in the sea is still at +20, but it is already starting to cool. But the acclimatization of the child is quite calm, and the price tag for the tours will definitely please mom and dad. The number of tourists is significantly reduced.

Warm comfortable weather is conducive to long walks, but if the child is still very small, you can rent a car and drive around various attractions. Older travelers can be taken to the water park or ride the rides. There are a lot of them on the island, so any family can choose the right option.


  • At the beginning of winter, Tenerife has a calm, cozy atmosphere.

  • Excellent local cuisine.

  • Low prices for accommodation and all entertainment.


There are really a lot of hotels in Tenerife, including family ones. If you pre-book a hotel room with children’s animation, a heated pool and a babysitter, you can ensure yourself a great vacation, regardless of the weather.


The resorts of the United Arab Emirates can offer their guests not only clean beaches, good sea water, but also a huge amount of modern entertainment. Dubai will be the most suitable for families with children. The temperature here is kept at around +20 degrees, which means that the baby will not have to languish in the heat. The water cools down to about the same level, but every good hotel has a separate pool for children.

As for entertainment, it is unlikely that you can get around them all in one vacation. Start with popular amusement parks, an aquarium, malls with playgrounds for kids. If your family travels a lot and often, you can go on a desert safari. Especially for tourists with children, one-day programs have been developed that are not too tiring and interesting even for preschoolers.


  • Accessible environment for parents with kids.

  • Cleanliness and order in the cities and on the beaches.

  • A wide variety of entertainment.


Holidays in Dubai are very easy to make interesting for every member of the family. It is enough to plan visits to specific places in advance and follow the plan. At the same time, children’s parks are best visited on a weekday. At this time, there is a minimum number of people, while on weekends you will have to defend many hours of queues for each attraction.

December does not have to be snowy, gray and chaotic due to the endless preparation for the holiday. It is much more pleasant to leave business and go to the sea, and when you return, you can also enjoy the New Year holidays at home. Try to make the vacation itself as long as possible, in case of difficult acclimatization, so as not to lose precious vacation days.
