place for your holiday
Ask our advice

With more than 300 sunny days a year, the Spanish island of Fuerteventura is a great destination at any time of the year. While in many countries it gets cold and uncomfortable during the winter season, travellers to Fuerteventura can enjoy great beach days with lots of sun. For many the warm temperatures and the dreamlike sea are already arguments enough for a trip to Fuerteventura, but there is one thing that attracts us most of all to the Canarian island: While your neighbouring islands are mostly overcrowded by tourists, on the second largest island of the archipelago we still have the chance to find secret places and wonderful natural landscapes.

Our tip: Head to the oldest village of the island - Betancuria. With approximately 700 inhabitants it is very sparsely populated and extremely quiet, but an absolute insider tip. Between large palm trees you will find beautiful houses, artistic and historical sights and numerous restaurants offering Andalusian dishes.

The most beautiful hotels in Fuerteventura

The hotels and accommodations in Fuerteventura are just as fabulous as the surrounding landscape. From luxurious hotels to cosy apartments, you will find a wide range of accommodation options to suit every need. We will be happy to help you find the right accommodation for your holiday.

Gastronomy experiences in Fuerteventura

For us, a holiday also includes tasting local specialities and delicacies from the village. In Fuerteventura we have experienced some incredible local dishes, which of course, we will share with you.  

Papas Arrugadas are small, salty potatoes, which can be wonderfully combined with "mojo", a spicy sauce made from fresh garlic, vinegar and oil as well as local spices. The potatoes are usually served as a starter, snack or side dish.

In the main course on Fuerteventura we often find fresh catch fish, such as the parrotfish Vieja. For desserts we recommend a fine almond cream, caramel pudding or a piece of almond cake. Admittedly, they are small calorie bombs, but we are also on holiday after all.

A paradise for active holidaymakers

High waves and a strong breeze make Fuerteventura a true paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Whether kite- or windsurfing, sailing or water skiing: the Spanish island offers a wide range of sporting activities.

If you prefer swimming in calm waves or long walks on the fine golden sand, we recommend the beach Playa de Esquinzo in the south of Fuerteventura. There are also a number of beautiful paths through the beautiful countryside away from the inland beaches, ideal for long walks or bike rides.
