Meaning strong wind, the Canary Island of Fuerteventura is almost the new kid on the block for Irish holidaymakers or maybe just a well-kept secret. Calling cheerfully to wind surfers for years, beach conditions are superb for watersports of all kinds. Swathes of perfect sand, sheltered dunes and crystal seas are hallmarks of Fuerteventura where the resort towns of Corralejo and Calete de Fuste provide sustenance for relaxing, drinking and dining.

Visit nearby Lanzarote on the daily ferry for a fun trip or just enjoy the intrinsically local feel in Fuerteventura which is very attractive in our commercial world. Spanking fresh seafood served waterside, a leisurely browse in the shops, or a camel ride on the dunes mean that, nautical pursuits aside, Fuerteventura is a force to be reckoned with.
