Ideal for families
Spectacular swimming pool area
The Canary Islands are a paradise of sun and beach of great scenic appeal, gastronomic wealth and entertainment for all types of travelers, although the biggest tourist attraction lies in the pleasant average temperature that is maintained throughout the year, making it possible to enjoy a perfect holiday at any time of year. For those looking for tranquility, the island of Fuerteventura is the best option of all possible when travelling to the so-called "Fortunate Islands", as calm and serenity are the main attractions of this island of the Canary archipelago, a quality that is reflected in most of the hotels in Fuerteventura.
Fuerteventura is also known for being the Canary Island with the warmest temperatures and the longest beaches, which makes it an ideal place to practice all kinds of water sports, such as surfing or windsurfing and to enjoy an unforgettable family holiday thanks to its wide range of leisure activities for children and adults.
Fuerteventura is a land of contrasts, with a unique charm in the environment, although it is far from the jungle landscape of other nearby islands. Volcanoes such as the mountain of Tindaya, together with its beaches of fine light sand or coarse black sand, make this island an extraordinary destination for those travellers who want to enjoy unique and unrepeatable enclaves in their days off. It is worth mentioning the beauty of the dunes, typical of the desert landscape that in many areas reminds us of a typical African picture, and the natural reserves that dominate more than eighty percent of the entire landscape.
When it comes to booking a getaway in Fuerteventura, it is really worth booking a hotel that offers all the comforts and services of holiday accommodation that will please the most discerning guests. To choose the right location for your hotel in Fuerteventura, it is advisable to stay in the island's best-known tourist centres such as the Corralejo area in the North of the island, or Playa de Jandía in the south.
The peace and relaxation that the island offers visitors make it a great place to enjoy the health, beauty and hydrotherapy treatments offered by the spa in the hotels in Fuerteventura that are most highly rated by travellers. Hotels such as the Occidental Jandía Royal Level, with a new concept of exclusive adults-only service that is perfect for couples, or the Barceló Corralejo Sands, a modern, centrally-located hotel that offers free transfers to Grandes Playas, are just two examples of hotels offering luxury and relaxation at great prices. Some of the hotels in Fuerteventura of the Barceló Hotel Group offer enriching beauty, health and wellness treatments, not forgetting the modern, fully-equipped fitness centres in these holiday complexes.
Cheese, fish or goat meat are some of the referents of the gastronomy of Fuerteventura, with a style of cooking somewhat different from the typical style of the Mediterranean diet that predominates in the rest of Spain. Also internationally known is the fame of the "papas arrugadas" (wrinkled potatoes) in the Canary Islands and this type of potato can be found, eaten and tasted in any corner of Fuerteventura.
There's a great deal of variety among visitors that choose Fuerteventura for their holiday, as this beautiful, peculiar island in the Atlantic is particularly attractive for those travelling with children. There's plenty to prevent the youngest members of the family and teenagers from getting bored as Fuerteventura offers a range of sports such as surfing, kitesurfing, scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing. Hotels such as the Barceló Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa or Barceló Castillo Beach Resort are fantastic options for a holiday with children in Fuerteventura. Guests can take advantage of spectacular swimming pool areas, children's playgrounds, bike hire and an endless array of activities for the whole family.
