About Fuerteventura

 

Fuerteventura is the longest, and the second largest of the Canary Islands. Despite its size it still remains sparsely populated, and has not undergone mass tourism development. The 265km of coastline offers beautiful fine sandy beaches that transform Fuerteventura into a paradise island. There is a wide range of leisure and cultural activities on the islands and many protected natural landscapes that can be visited.

Coast/Beach:

The beaches at Caleta de Fuste are simply marvellous. The nearest beach is approximately 10 minutes walk and there you will find 2 man-made lagoon beaches, with fine golden sand which are safe for swimming. You will also find a stylish restaurant and bar that is located off the coast between the beaches, reached via a bridge/walkway 10 mins stroll from the villa.

There are many picturesque beaches north and south of Caleta de Fuste which can be accessed by car between 15 to 50 minutes.

Travel:

Fuerteventura Airport is approximately 8 km from the Villa. You can arrange a taxi from the Airport for 12 to 15 Euro. As a result car hire is not essential. However we would recommend hiring a car for part, if not all of your stay to fully appreciate the beauty of the island.

A free courtesy transport is also available from the 5 star Elba Palace Hotel.
