Fuerteventura

The island of “Eternal Spring”. The climate on Fuerteventura is pleasant throughout the year. The sea adjusts the temperature making the hot Sahara winds blow away from the island. The island's name in English translates as "strong fortune, or luck", as the Spanish word for wind is viento.

Fuerteventura is the oldest of the Canary Islands, and was formed about 70 million years ago as a result of volcanic activity.

Fuerteventura, the island with the oldest history, has the longest beaches of all the archipelago, of wonderful fine sand.

Only a narrow channel separates Fuerteventura from the African continent.

It is a paradise equally for spending holidays at the beach as for fishing. There are great beaches even very close to the islands capital, Puerto del Rosario.

Fuerteventura is an ideal destination for surfers (the island has an important place on the windsurfing World Cup circuit) and for diving fans, thanks to the caves, tunnels, overhangs and rock formations to be found on its ocean beds.
