Ideal for families
Spectacular swimming pool area
The Canary Islands are a paradise of sunshine and beaches with attractive landscapes, rich cuisine and entertainment for all types of travellers, but what really attracts tourists is the pleasant climate all year round that makes it possible to enjoy a holiday at any time of the year. For those looking for tranquillity, the island of Fuerteventura is the best option of all for visits to the "Lucky Islands". Peace and serenity are the main appeal of this island in the Canary archipelago, and are echoed in most of the hotels in Fuerteventura.
Fuerteventura is also the island with the warmest climate and the most extensive beaches, making it an ideal place to enjoy all kinds of water sports such as surfing or windsurfing, and for an unforgettable family holiday with its fantastic choice of fun activities for all ages.
Fuerteventura is a land of contrasts, the setting offering a unique charm that differs from the forest landscape you can find on other nearby islands. Volcanoes such as Mount Tindaya along with beaches with either fine, light or coarse black sand make this extraordinary island a destination for travellers who want to enjoy unique settings during their relaxing break. One highlight is the beautiful dunes that are reminiscent of desert landscapes more typically found in parts of Africa, and another is the nature reserves that make up over 80% of the region.
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 and kid goat's meat are just some of the highlights of the cuisine of Fuerteventura, with a style of cooking that varies slightly from the Mediterranean diet that is commonly found in the rest of Spain. Also well-known worldwide are the local "papas arrugadas" (wrinkled potatoes) which you can find and savour 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.
