Find a beach apartment on Fuerteventura
Choosing an apartment on Fuerteventura for your holiday isn't quite as straightforward as it might be on some of the more developed Canary Islands. With a little patience though, it shouldn't be too hard to find suitable accommodation within easy reach of the beach on this windswept but welcoming island.
Breezing into that apartment
Fuerteventura is becoming more popular with British holidaymakers, especially now that EasyJet offer direct budget flights to the island from Bristol. Liverpool, London Gatwick and London Stansted.
A beachside apartment on Fuerteventura is an ideal accommodation option, especially for families. Part of the attraction of Fuerteventura is that it has been developed more sensitively than other islands in the Canaries. This means there is not quite the same volume of accommodation on offer, but there are still plenty of websites offering self-catering apartments and villas on the island.
Beach and nightlife in Fuerteventura
There are several popular beach areas on Fuerteventura. Where you choose will depend on the kind of holiday you are looking for. Fuerteventura's winds and waves make it a popular choice for water sports enthusiasts and windsurfers.
The area around the crescent-shaped cove of Cala de Fuste is ideal for those looking for active days, with local operators offering water sports tuition, boat and submarine trips.
On the south coast, the Costa Calma lives up to its name, providing idyllic beaches for sunbathers. Corralejo, on the east coast of the island, is similarly sheltered, but this is where most of the resorts and developments are based. This means there are plentiful restaurants and nightlife, but the beaches can get a little busy.
When searching for an apartment in Fuerteventura, bear in mind that booking directly with the apartment owner can involve considerable savings. It is also much easier to get a detailed description of the apartment's location and its features by dealing with the owner. If you like the apartment, it might be possible to obtain a discount for your future visits to Fuerteventura.
