Fuerteventura, Spain

You do not need to fly to the other side of the world for pearly white beaches that lead to an azure blue sea!

This is why so many people fly to Fuerteventura. Waving palm trees, wide white beaches and clear blue water. The Canary Islands are not only the ideal destination for an extremely relaxing holiday in the sun, but it is also {i>the<i} place for water sports enthusiasts. After a lovely day of floating on the water, go to one of the delicious fish restaurants with a view of - what else - the beach.

The time to fly to Fuerteventura

A refreshing sea breeze means that this Spanish island is pleasant in the summer with temperatures reaching 25 to 30 degrees. Many people also fly to Fuerteventura in winter. And rightly so as the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees. A boat trip from Corralejo to Isla de Los Lobos is fun to do all year round. The boats ‘El Majorero’ and ‘Isla de Lobos’ have glass bottoms so you can admire the Spanish underwater life in the clear water.
