By taxi

Traveling by taxi is fairly convenient in Fuerteventura. Taxi operators practice low rates, which, from the very beginning, is a strong incentive for resorting to this means of transport, though for long rides taxis might not be the best choice. One thing tourists should keep in mind is taxis operate in a municipal system, meaning that a taxi pertaining to a certain municipality will not pick up clients wanting to travel to a municipality other than the one assigned to it. Taxis are also available at Fuerteventura Airport. In order to get around by taxi, the following telephone numbers might prove useful:

By car

Getting around by car in Furteventura is yet another excellent alternative of searching out the island. If decided to get to Fuerteventura by sea, people should know they have the possibility of bringing their own personal vehicle, depending on the offers and rates put forward by the sea line company of their choice. On the other hand, getting around by car is enabled by the some 30 car hire companies on the island which offer a vast range of options in terms of vehicles, facilities and services. Puerto del Rosario, La Oliva and Pajara feature the highest density in terms of car rental companies. Tourists should keep in mind the tourist platform of Antigua, Betancuria and Tuineje too is serviced by car hire operators.

By motorbike

Riding a motorbike (or a scooter, for that matter) is one of the most rewarding manners of discovering Fuerteventura. Some of the car rental companies also make available motorbikes for hire, but Fuerteventura is also serviced by companies specialized in renting such vehicles. East Coast Rides, for instance, offers a large range of two-wheel vehicles to clients’ satisfaction. Bike-Point Fuerteventura is another reliable alternative.

By sea

The sea line companies servicing Fuerteventura do not necessarily operate internally, which means tourists can only use their services only to get from one island to another. Ferries are, thus, best resorted to as means of island hopping. Trasmediterranea, Naviera Armas and Fred. Olsen Express are the main sea line operators in Fuerteventura. Boat, yacht or catamaran rental is also possible on Fuerteventura, to tourists’ satisfaction of being able to make extensive trips and island hopping at their own pace.

By bike

Getting around by bike is, as compared to other Canary Islands, best practicable in Fuerteventura given the somewhat milder topography of this island. In case tourists do not bring their personal bike and if they really want to discover the island on two wheels while also working out, they should resort to the few bike hire companies located in Fuerteventura. Bike rental services aside, these companies also provide guided tours and group trips. Easy Riders and Bikestation are some of the most notable companies of this kind.
