Caleta de Fuste is a purpose-built holiday resort situated on the east coast of the island, approximately ten minutes from the airport. The town has been developed around a cove, Caleta being the name for Cove in Spanish, and Fuste is a type of fishing boat.
The busy town is growing fast to accommodate the growth of tourism in the area. There is one main street where you will find the town’s popular bars and restaurants.
Within the town you will find all the amenities and services needed for your holiday; aside from dining options, there are supermarkets, banks,
chemists, a multi screen cinema, shopping centre, boutiques and much more.
Wander off from the main street and you can enjoy a lovely stroll around some of the quieter tree-lined streets of the town.
There is also a marina where you can book excursions to explore other parts of the island and the resort has an excellent choice of bars, restaurants and shops.
The superb sandy beach which slopes gently to the sea is one of the safest on the island for children. The pale golden sand was imported in for the purpose of developing the resort, and over time, unlike many man made beaches, has fused with the natural surroundings.
There are other beaches outside of town, close to some of the hotel resorts, which are also man-made, created from lagoons by taking away rock and replacing it with sand.
Caleta de Fuste is home to its own golf course, with clubhouse and restaurant.
