Destinations / Canaries / Fuerteventura
Famous for amazing beaches, where footprints are rare and wavelets lap the shore and beaches that lure surfers with huge breakers. The island is delightfully local and unsophisticated and all the more attractive for it!
Travelling with children? Don't forget to visit the animal sanctuary and theme park - Fuerteventura Oasis Park. With camel rides, sea lion shows and tropical birds - there's a whole world of adventure in store. Pet the huge collection of farmyard friends at the Kid's Farm - where goats, cows, ponies, horses, ducks, guinea pigs and rabbits can all be found. If your timing is good, you can even spend a magical night at the zoo - there are 8 days a year when you can camp under the twinkling stars, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the Botanical Garden!
