Fuerteventura, an hourglass island, where hidden among its deserts, its white dunes stand out as the main attraction for the visitor. Serving as a nexus and refreshment from the incessant sunny days, the wind softens the intense light in a desert landscape, an exile for many, in the past due to its orography and apparent solitude, and home to many others due to its warm welcome.
Not without forgetting that it proudly holds the title of Biosphere Reserve, a history full of pirates, and a pleasant tranquillity today for those who seek to get lost among its sandy deserts, or in contrast, a great social life with its commercial surfaces and leisure in its most touristic enclaves.
Fuerteventura, brimming with tranquillity, is the home of good gastronomy with award-winning cheeses, always linked to the sea and its winds.
Caleta de Fuste
Caleta de Fuste is one of the main tourist areas in Fuerteventura. Two golf courses, spa centres, a wide range of stores and numerous leisure areas.
