Fuerteventura Tourism - Hotel Reservations and tourist attractions

Known from ancient times as the Island of the Fortunate, FuerteventuraFuerteventura does not fall short of this quite adequate description. The island is, indeed, a place of leisure and idleness, of never ending sunbathing and golden beaches. A particularity of Fuerteventura is that it stands out as one of the few places on earth were flying kites has managed to turn into an international festival (given the strong winds blowing in certain regions of Fuerteventura).

Being the second largest island in the Canary Islands Archipelago, Fuerteventura is, from a tourist point of view, one of the most successful resort islands of the respective archipelago. A tourist paradise, one might say. And they wouldn't be wrong.

Short History of Fuerteventura

Geologically speaking, Fuerteventura is allegedly the oldest of the Canary Islands, though its formation took place in time, being boosted by an eruption 20 million years ago. However spectacular the natural history of the place might be, the human history is just as significant. Thus, the fact that Phoenicians, the Spaniards and the Portuguese, as well as the French alternately tried to hold dominion over the island is a reason enough to believe that the place is indeed one rightfully coveted for. Nowadays Fuerteventura is a part of the province of Las Palmas and, hence, a part of Spain.

Accommodation in Fuerteventura

The numerous hotels thriving on the exploitation of the 150 beaches on Fuerteventura are to be found throughout the resorts developed on the island, of which the the most notable are Puerto Rosario, Betancuria, Corralejo, Morro Jable, Caleta de Fuste, Tuineje, and Antigua. However, the mainstream hotels are occasionally ruled out by tourists who, for instance, are willing to self cater, their first option in terms of accommodation being represented by apartments for rent. Another solution is put forward by the rural homes which feature an additional upside: they offer splendid countryside views and they are somewhat secluded, which guarantees peace and calm for tourists in search of such elements.

Canary Islands Cuisine in Fuerteventura

The gastronomic picture of Fuerteventura is nothing different from the overall offer put forward by all of the Canary Islands. Thus, one should always expect to find an extremely loyal representation of many international cuisines in Fuerteventura, ranging from Chinese to English food, the latter being vigorously served as an almost traditional habit (given the special tourist relations between the Canary Islands and England). Spanish dishes, such as paella, tortilla, tapas or kebabs could never miss from the many restaurants and eating venues scattered throughout the resorts in Fuerteventura. Canarian cheeses, such as cottage cheese and cured goat cheese also represent a culinary particularity of the place, along with the wrinkly potatoes (papas arrugadas) and pastry specialties made of gofio.

Tourist Attractions and Objectives in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura hosts two art galleries, namely, the Casa Mane Art Center and the Museum of Sacred Art. The Unamuno Museum, the Archeology Museum, the Betancuria Museum and the Alcogida Eco-Museum are the most notable establishment of this kind. The SS American Star Shipwreck and the Antigua Windmill are yet two other attractions which may entice the tourist interest, but one should never forget to visit La Lajita Zoo (or Oasis Park) and Baku Water Park. Eventually, the Los Lobos Island is a further attraction, provided that the tourist cares for a short boat trip to the respective island.

Events and Festivals in Fuerteventura

The eventful calendar of Fuerteventura is replete with religious festivals, of which the most notable are the Three Holy Kings, the Holy Week, the Day of the Cross and Corpus Christi. Yet, Fuerteventura also hosts a series of rather secular events, such as the Carnival of Fuerteventura, the National Day Festival and the International Kite Festival, as well as some musical events, like the Fuerteventura Music Festival and the International Jazz Festival.

Other Tourist Hotspots within the Canary Islands

A stay in Gran Canaria will surely come as an enlargement of the insight into what the Canary Islands mean, from a tourist point of view or otherwise. Gran Canaria is dubbed the Hawaii of the Atlantic for the easily conceivable reasons. The tourist resources of Gran Canaria are a definite closer for visiting the third largest of the Canary Islands.

For a formula which combines untamed natural diversity and anthropogenic peaks in terms of tourist opportunities, Lanzarote should not be missed out by those used to make their holidays on the Canary Islands.

Tenerife, on the other hand, is priceless in terms of the tourist circuit of the Canary Islands. The largest island of this archipelago is, indeed, as big as to be home to an overwhelming natural abundance and to tourist leisure opportunities alike, combing rough mountainous experiences with seaside calmness and mildness.
