Perfect for practising outdoor or water sports
The second largest island of the Canary Islands has been considered a Biosphere Reserve since 2009, thanks to the variety of ecosystems and their valuable species. An island made for sports and relaxation between natural scenery, miles of beaches with clear water and the pioneering services of Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Fuerteventura.
An original way to get to know Fuerteventura is to cross the island through the paths of the Parque Rural de Betancuria or along the Tindaya Mountain, two routes with colourful roads and pure air. To delve into the more traditional past, it is worth visiting the Alcogida Eco Museum, where rural life and the typical houses of the island are recreated.
The wild and impressive beaches of the Jandía Nature Park, Costa Calma and Morro Jable are interspersed with the towns of Bentacuria, Puerto del Rosacio or La Oliva, whose churches, chapels and even a castle are part of the World Heritage Site. The extensive dunes of the Corralejo Nature Park, a stone’s throw from the Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Fuerteventura, are also one of the most popular natural attractions.
The waves and the blue water that bathe the coasts of Fuerteventura make scuba diving, kite surfing and windsurfing the star sports. In fact, every year windsurfers from all over the world gather at beaches such as Sotavento to take part in the Surfing World Cup. Another ideal place to practice water sports is Playa del Castillo, in La Caleta de Fuste, a coastline where you can enjoy the calm of the sea without any wind.
Every corner of this island is ideal for relaxation and excitement in equal measure, so do not miss out on thehotels in Fuerteventura of the Barceló Hotel Group to enjoy the island as a unique experience.
