In addition to the many leisure activities offered, Fuerteventura offers many places of interest.
The places with their historical buildings and the small fishing villages rise like oases in the desolate landscape of the island.
The village, which is threatening to sink into ruin, now shines in new splendor, for which most of the capitalist foreigners who went to the village were responsible, as most of them preserved the old building fabric and upgradet it through renovation.
The small fishing village, quite exactly in the middle of the east coast of Fuerteventura, consists of only a few houses. In front of the wind-protected walled terrace of the fish restaurant "Los Pescadores" are chairs, tables and umbrellas directly on the rubble of the black lava beach.
Between Fuerteventura and the neighboring island of Los Lobos there is only a small seaweed. The six-square-kilometers island can be reached within 30 minutes by the glass bottom boat from Corralejo. Even the ride is a great experience, because through the glass bottom of the boat you can discover the fascinating underwater world of the
Atlantic. The only settlement on the island is the tranquil fishing village El Puertito. If you planning an excursion to the small island, you should take drinks and food with you, because there is only one restaurant on Los Lobos, where visitors can only dine with advance booking. A campsite provides
accommodation in the open.
Puerto del Rosario is the capital and at the same time the economic and administrative center of the island. about a third of the locals live in the metropolis, which is particularly captivating with Canarian, maritime flair. At the Plaza de Espana in the harbor quarter, tourists and locals meet to watch the lively activity from a shady place
Corralejo is located on the northern tip of the island and is slightly larger than Caleta de Fuste, which is also characterized by tourism. The old town has as its center the old harbor, which was used by the local fishermen as a fishing spot.
The former small fishing village of El Cotillo on the west coast of Fuerteventura is surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape. The center of the village is the small harbor, which is mainly used by local fishermen. The
The actual harbor, on which many boats moored, is relatively new. You get quickly from the new to the old port, since there are only separated by a small hill. At the old harbor there are several bars and restaurants. The view from the defense tower "El Tostón" is particularly worthwhile.
On the east coast of Fuerteventura lies the beautiful resort of Caleta de Fuste. With long sandy beaches, large holiday resorts and a beautiful beach promenade, this is an ideal destination for families with children. The place has numerous restaurants, which pamper their guests with delicious, island-typical dishes.
This place is located away from the sprawling tourist trails. It is true that this is why wealthy citizen of the island and the neighboring island of Gran Canaria have become a holiday destination here. The restored former fishermen are often idyllic on the slope. At the weekend and in the high season, this place is quite animated, otherwise only some curious people get lost after Las Playitas.
Ajuy is a remote fishing village on the west coast of Fuerteventura. It is reached by a road about 7 kilometers long. This is about 2 kilometers past Pajara from the road to La Pared to the right. The place has a small black beach with the eerie name " Playa de los Muertos" (beach of the dead). This fate can be avoided, however, with some caution when bathing on the streams of the west coast. In the village there are some excursion places. From the right side of the beach, a path leads along the rocky coast to the caves of Ajuy. These can be reached via several steps. The two caves are quite spacious. In rough seas the descent is not recommended.
