Ideal for families
Spectacular swimming pool area
The Canary Islands are a paradise of sun and beach with a great scenic attraction, gastronomic wealth and entertainment for all types of travellers, although the greatest tourist attraction lies in the pleasant average temperature that is maintained throughout the year, making it the perfect place for a holiday at any time of the year. For those seeking tranquillity, the island of Fuerteventura is the best option of all when it comes to travelling to the so-called "Fortunate Islands", as calm and serenity are the main attractions of this canary island, a quality that is reflected in the majority of the hotels on the island.
Fuerteventura is also known for being the Canary Island with the warmest temperatures and the longest beaches, which makes it the perfect 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 its surroundings, although it is far from the jungle-like landscape of other nearby islands. Volcanoes such as the Tindaya mountain, as well as its beaches of fine white sand or coarse black sand, make this island an extraordinary destination for travellers who want to enjoy unique and unforgettable spots during their days of rest. It is worth mentioning the beauty of the dunes, typical of the desert landscape, which in many areas is reminiscent of a typical African landscape, and the nature reserves that dominate more than eighty percent of the entire landscape.
When planning a trip to Fuerteventura, it is worth booking a hotel that offers guests all the comforts and services of a holiday accommodation that meets the needs of the most demanding travellers. In order to choose the right hotel location in Fuerteventura, it is advisable to stay in the most popular areas of the island, such as the Corralejo area, located in the north of the island, or the Playa de Jandía area, in the south.
The tranquillity and relaxation that the island offers its visitors make it a great place to enjoy health, wellness and hydrotherapy treatments, such as the spa available at the top-rated hotels in Fuerteventura. Hotels such as the Occidental Jandía Royal Level, with a new concept of exclusive service for adults only and perfect for couples, or the Barceló Corralejo Sands, a modern and central hotel that offers free transfers to Grandes Playas, are some examples of hotels that offer luxury and relaxation at a very good price. Some of the Barceló Hotel Group's Fuerteventura hotels also offer enriching beauty, health and wellness treatments, not forgetting the modern, fully-equipped fitness centres located in the holiday complexes.
Cheese, fish and goat meat are some of the main specialities of Fuerteventura's gastronomy, with a style of cooking that is somewhat different from the typical Mediterranean diet that prevails in the rest of Spain. The "papas arrugadas" (wrinkled potatoes) are also internationally famous in the Canary Islands and can be found, eaten and tasted in every corner of Fuerteventura.
Many travellers choose Fuerteventura for their holidays, as this marvellous and unique Atlantic island is a particularly attractive destination for those travelling with children. The youngest members of the household and also teenage children will never be bored, as Fuerteventura is perfect for sports such as surfing, kitesurfing, scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing. Hotels such as the Barceló Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa or the Barceló Castillo Beach Resort are fantastic options for holidays with children in Fuerteventura. Guests can enjoy spectacular swimming pool areas, children's playgrounds, bicycle hire and a host of activities for all the family.
