ACTIVITIES
FUERTEVENTURA

La Lajita OASIS PARK, situated in the south of Fuerteventura, open all the year round, is a natural paradise of more than 780.000 m². Oasis Park offers a lot: zoo, camel safaris, a botanical garden with many tropical plants, animal shows and a great deal more. You will enjoy an unforgettable day visiting one of the most important projects created to protect and preserve the unique flora and fauna of the Canary Islands.

Oasis Park is divided into a zoo, a botanical garden, and a camel safari station. In the park there are 3 restaurants where you can have lunch, a souvenir shop, a garden centre, playgrounds for children and toilets with baby changing units. Furthermore, there's a free "Jungle Bus" for all visitors, which shuttles between the botanical garden and the zoo every 10 minutes.

The zoo harbours about 250 animal breeds. Special attractions of the "Oasis Park" are different animal shows such as the parrot show, the sea lion show, the reptile show or the bird of prey show.
If you love nature and plants, you must visit the botanical garden with its many palm trees, cacti, and tropical plants.

If you drive along Fuerteventura's main road (FV2), you can't miss the Oasis Park. On the FV2 between Tarajalejo and Costa Calma, there's one section where the central reservation is planted with colourful flowers and where you can see many palm trees, green bushes and trees on both sides of the road. Here is the Oasis Park in La Lajita. There's also a huge colourful sign, which shows the way.

A day trip to LANZAROTE by ferry from Corralejo (Fuerteventura) is a great experience. On a clear day you get a good overview of the neighbouring island Lanzarote. The landscape, which is similar to Fuerteventura’s landscape, fascinates by its lava areas and the large wine-growing district.

"Mirador Morro Velosa" is considered to be the most beautiful viewpoint on Fuerteventura. The unique panorama from a height of about 650 metres offers a view of the north of Fuerteventura with the dunes of Corralejo and Lanzarote - given the weather is good. The Mirador is situated between Valle de Santa Inés and Betancuria. It is located on the "Tegú" mountain.


SHOPPING
Puerto del Rosario
The two main shopping streets in Puerto del Rosario are Leon y Castillo and Avd Juan de Betancourt. Having said this it is worth a wander round Puerto as there are some interesting shops tucked away down the side streets. You need to bear in mind that the shops in Puerto tend to stick to the siesta closing times, being open in the morning and again in the late afternoon. The biggest shopping centre there is Las Rotundas, with many big name shops.

Corralejo
There are lots of shops on the main street of Corralejo. Shops tend to be located in the commercial centres that are dotted around the town.   The latest shopping centre to open is Las Campanario.
Caleta de Fuste
Besides the Atlantico Shopping Centre, where you might pop into Revolution for refreshments, there are several smaller commercial centres dotted around the town.   The shops include various jewellers and perfume shops, as well as gift shops, clothing retailers and electrical retailers.

Morro Jable
There are lots of shops along the main street in Morro Jable that cater for the needs of tourists. These are set back under a shaded walkway, and are a good option for getting out of the sun for a while. There are also a couple of commercial centres just off the main street. The old part of Morro Jable is much more congested, but has lots of shops that cater for the needs of residents.
Markets.

There are markets held in Corralejo, (Mondays and Fridays at the Baku waterpark). Caleta de Fuste (Saturday mornings) Jandia (Thursday) and Costa Calma (Sunday). All offer an interesting alternative to the shops.

Supermarkets
There are several supermarket chains that have stores in Fuerteventura. The Netto chain is most prominent in the tourist area, and is related in some way to the Hiperdino stores, which are to be found away from the tourist areas and are generally cheaper. The Spar stores in Corralejo and the Atlantico Centre in Caleta de Fuste are used by tourists and locals and the Inpecasa chain have stores dotted around the island, including some in relatively small villages such as El Mattoral and Lajares.


WALKING on Fuerteventura is a much more enjoyable pastime outside of the summer months, because although the weather in Fuerteventura does not vary a great deal throughout the year, it is warmer and much sunnier in the height of summer, and if you walk any distance you will need to carry plenty of fluids, and make sure you are protected from the sun.

The local government bodies in Fuerteventura have invested a lot of money into creating coastal walkways, such as the one that runs between Caleta de Fuste and Nuevo Horizonte, and these provide a way of going for a short stroll in whatever footwear you choose to wear, but for the more serious walks it is necessary to have some suitable shoes or boots. It rarely rains, but in the winter months the wind can be quite cool, especially in the mountains, so at least one additional layer of warm clothing is a good idea.


GOLFING
Golf is a very popular sport on Fuerteventura. The first golf course on the Island was created in Caleta de Fuste (Costa Caleta). This is a really excellent course, designed by Juan Catarineu, and which hosted the Spanish Open in 2004. Quite an achievement for a course, which only opened in Spring 2002.
Despite Fuerteventura's almost constant sunshine and little rain, the golf course has beautiful greens. The winds provide a challenge for all golfers. There are three lakes and other natural hazards.

The golf course also boasts a 5 star clubhouse, the Elba Palace Golf Resort Hotel, which homes the pro shop and the resident PGA professional. It has a driving range, chipping area, practice bunker and putting green. Practice facilities include a 50 bay driving range, club and buggy hire, a large putting green and a second green for chipping and bunker shots.
This course is designed around luxurious villa complexes many of these villas being available for rental.
 

Las Salinas Golf Course.
The second course to open was built alongside the first one in Caleta. This is very well set up as a course that is ideal for the holidaymaker type golfer, as well as experienced golfer, it being slightly less challenging than Fuerteventura Golf Course. This course is currently maintained in very good condition.
It is a par 70 course designed for Manolo Piñeiro, twice world champion golfer. The course has Amenities include a clubhouse, pro shop, buggy, trolley and club hire, a cafeteria, restaurant and changing rooms with showers and lockers.


Jandia Golf Course.
The course in Jandia, on the right as you enter Morro Jable, though open still has a few teething problems. The course is quite hilly and would be more suitable if the course had buggies, but at the moment there aren't any. The paths between tees aren't clearly defined and it can be difficult to find the next tee. It is well laid out and if the teething problems can be sorted out this promises to be a good course.


Las Playitas Golf Course.
In October 2008 the first nine holes of the Golf course in Las Playitas were opened. There is also a driving range, for around 30 golfers. It is a very well planned and challenging course and golfers will look forward to the opening of the final 9 holes very soon. The golf pro here is British PGA professional Murdo McCorquodale, who speaks English, Spanish and German. The Golf Course at Las Playitas Golf course is just a few moments away from Gran Tarajal.


DIVING
If you are considering coming to the Canary Islands for a diving holiday you should bear in mind that with its crystal clear waters and consistent water temperatures, Fuerteventura is a divers' paradise. The water temperature around the Canary Islands ranges from 18 to 22 degrees, and this range of temperatures is ideal for supporting the multi-organism ecosystem that exists around Fuerteventura's coast.

There are about a dozen dive centers, such as Abyss divers in Corralejo, around the coast of Fuerteventura. They all run courses for divers with various levels of ability, and a day spent taking part on a taster course makes for a very enjoyable day out. You are guaranteed to see a wide range of species. Diving in the Canaries is like taking a dip in your own zillion litre fish tank, and Fuerteventura offers some of the best diving in the Canary Islands.

Given that you are fit enough to dive, and that your time of your dive will leave sufficient time before you fly home, a typical beginners course will pan out in the following way. The first part of the course will include a theory lesson to teach you the basic theory including safety procedures, how the equipment works and the hand signals you can expect to use. You will then have a practice session in a pool to allow you to become accustomed to the equipment and allow the staff to correct your dive weights if they need to. Then it is off to the sea for a dive that lasts about thirty minutes. You will need to be careful because once you have had a taste in the shallows; you may become hooked and filled with a desire to head further out into the deep blue ocean.


SNORKELLING
Snorkelling is a popular activity that is suitable for everyone. The clear pure waters around the island means that there is an abundance of sea life. There are snorkelling excursions that take you to the best sites.


SAILING
To go sailing you need wind and water (and a yacht!). Fuerteventura has an abundance of these. There are lots of harbours around the island and some offer sailing and fishing trips.


SURFING, WINDSURFING AND KITE BOARDING
In the eighties Fuerteventura was discovered as a surfers' paradise. That’s why Fuerteventura is also called the "European Hawaii".

The best surf spots can be found in the northern part of the island between Corralejo and El Cotillo. There you can surf the so called "Reefbreaks", where the waves break on the rocks. Other kinds of waves you can surf are "Beachbrakes".

Another well known surf spot can be found to the south of El Cotillo. Because the best northern surf spots can only be reached through dustroads it is recommended to use a four-by-four to avoid damaging your (hired) car. You should also bring enough food and drinks with you because you won’t find any shops or restaurants there.

Those who want to learn to surf could rent a board, just start trying, but it’s better to take at least a few surfing lessons. With the instructions of an experienced surfing teacher you will learn a lot faster than when you try to find out everything on your own, and besides he will know the best surf spots and can give you inside information on, for example, dangerous currents. There are one day courses but you can also sign up for a surfcamp where you get several days of surfing lessons. You are provided with a board and a wetsuit, taken to and from the surf spots and it’s usually fully catered. The paddling through the waves is physically demanding so you should be reasonably fit. So exercise and swim a little bit before you take surfing lessons!

The strong surf around some parts of the island make Fuerteventura one of the best spots in the world for surfing. The reliable winds and a variety of water conditions mean that the needs of wind and kite surfers of any level of ability are catered for.

There is surf to suit all standards of surfer from the novice to the most experienced and adventurous surfer. Lessons are available for any of the disciplines at various centres around the island.


ACTIVITIES
TENERIFE

JUNGLE PARK
Ecological Park (Las Aguilas Jungle Park) has tropical gardens, tigers, crocodiles, wildlife, birds of prey and parrot shows, and is on a smaller scale than Loro Park, but is also a little closer to home if you are staying in the South of Tenerife.

WHALE & DOLPHIN TRIPS
Tourists can alternatively take a sightseeing boat trip to view the whales and dolphins in their natural habitat, and because these creatures are so used to seeing us out there, they are not shy and can often be seen swimming next to the boats.  Some of the companies do offer to take you out again free of charge if you are not lucky enough to spot the whales and dolphins on your first trip! 


SIAM PARK
Europe’s greatest water-park, Siam park is a thrilling oriental adventure in Playa de Las Americas, and is filled with adrenaline pumping attractions, diverse animals, children’s play area, warm lazy river and golden beaches plus a surf school and wave pool like no other.

Siam Park brings together the exotic mystery and adventure of the ancient kingdom of Thailand with twenty first century know how - to bring you the biggest and best themed aquatic park in the whole of Europe.

For a more simple dining experience, the cafes and restaurants are in abundance, from simple cafes to lunch in, to top of the range French, Italian and Indian restaurants, to name but a few, where you can relax over a leisurely dinner and sample whatever type of cuisine takes your fancy.


BARRANCO DEL INFIERNO – ADEJE
One of the best-known tourist attractions in Adeje Town is the “Barranco del Infierno” (Hell’s Gorge in English), one of the most popular barrancos, or natural waterways, that there are to see in Tenerife.  Although it is not the most spectacular of them all, it has the deepest ravine, and is the only location you will find naturally running water. 

This barranco has become a walker’s paradise and takes around three to four hours to complete the 16km round trip. At wetter times of the year, the highlight of the walk is arriving at the waterfall, whose cascades fall into a natural pool.  This is a great place to relax before the walk back.  At hotter times of the year, the waterfall can be reduced to a trickle rather than a cascade, but is still a beautiful place to see. You should also take note of the caves high in the rock face, where in many of them were found Guanche mummies.  Cost of the walk is approx 3 euros, and free on Sundays if booked in advance.  You join the walk at the top of Adeje town, by the well-known “Otello” restaurant on the street “Calle Los Molinos”.  The opening times of the Barranco path are everyday from 0830 hours to 1730 hours, but access is not allowed after 1430 hours, or at any time of bad weather.


BEACHES
FUERTEVENTURA

The beach of CALETA DE FUSTE is a bay of approx. 600m. The sand is light-coloured and fine with some pebbles near the water. The beach is ideal for children since there are hardly ever high waves. You can do various water sports like surfing or jet skiing.

The FV 2 runs directly alongside Caleta de Fuste. Just leave the road at one of the roundabouts near Caleta de Fuste and look for a parking space in the village.



COFETE beach is not suitable for bathing. There's something mysterious in it. Deserted, solitary, lonely, and in the background you can see the 800m high mountains of Jandia where the clouds get caught. The weather is always breezy and the waves are very high.



South of CORRALEJO there is the 11 km long dune area of the National Park (Parque Natural de las Dunas de Corralejo). The sand is very light-coloured and fine. From the beach you have a fantastic view of the islands "Los Lobos" and "Lanzarote". The beach is suitable for children. In order to shield yourself from the wind you can use stone castles, which are big enough for two. There's also a marked off area for wind surfers and kite surfers.


The FV 1 leads directly through the dune area of Corralejo.



In Corralejo there are several small bays. The largest bay, which is situated directly in Corralejo, is about 200m long. There are many tourists with children and also locals on the beach. The sand is light-coloured, the left and right side of the beach is limited by different-sized black rocks. Next to the surfing school there is a long, concreted pier, which, goes about 20m from the beach into the sea. Lying on this beach, you have a good view of Corralejo Port and the island "Los Lobos". Further away you can also see the neighbouring island "Lanzarote".


Drive towards the sea in the town of Corralejo. You can park the car in one of the many side roads and walk the remaining couple of metres to the beach.

  

COSTA CALMA is a large bay of approx. 1.5 km length.  Southwards you can walk along the beach to Morro Jable for approx. 21 km. In the north the beach is limited by black rocks extending into the sea.


Take the FV 2 towards Costa Calma. In town, drive onto the road which goes parallel to the FV 2 (seaside), here you can park at the roadside. Now just walk through the hotel grounds and you are on Costa Calma beach.



EL COTILLO is a touristically hardly developed area. This is what makes this beach so lovely: few tourists. The whole bathing area consists of several bays separated from each other by lava rocks and stones in the sea. Although the bay is situated on the west coast, it is possible to bathe here. The beach is also suitable for children since the sea is very shallow.

Turn right in El Cotillo town (there's a road sign), and then follow the road for approx. 1 km.



ESQUINZO beach consists partly of light-coloured sand, partly of stones. Esquinzo is a tourist town, which was constructed near the light sandy beach only a few years ago. Though the beach is not very large, you can walk from one bay to the next. In some parts, the beach is bordered by dark rocks. Esquinzo beach is suitable for children.


On Motorway FV-2, take the exit 79 (Butihondo). On the next roundabout take the exit "El Salmo". Then turn left towards "Esquinzo" at the next junction. In town you go off the road and drive left. Here you can park your car and walk the last few metres. Another possibility is to follow the gravel road and park behind the beach bar.



The beach of the peninsula JANDIA runs from Morro Jable to Costa Calma for approx. 21 km. The whole beach is divided into different sections. You can walk from Morro Jable to Costa Calma (or the other way round) in 5 to 6 hours and return by bus. The beach section where the lighthouse is situated (tourist centre Jandía from the Iberostar hotels to Morro Jable) is also called "Playa de Matorral" and is ideal for families with children. Fine, light-coloured sand, clean and shallow sea. Between the road and the beach there are salt marshes, which are legally protected.



Tourists hardly ever go to LA LAJITA beach. Fishers depart from here to the sea with their fishing boats. La Lajita is a calm bay with dark sand. The sand is fine in the front; in the back there are many big and small stones. Since you find mostly locals here, you can't hire sunshades or sun beds. A thing, which is nice, are the palm trees on the beach.



LA PARED bay is 900m long, with light-coloured and fine sand. Since the beach is situated on the west coast of Fuerteventura there's always a torrential surge and a perilous current. Thus, the beach is absolutely unsuitable for bathing.



LAS PLAYITAS beach is a large bay where you (still) find few tourists. Luckily there are not so many hotels in Las Playitas. Many fishermen go fishing to the sea from here. The sand on the beach is fine and dark; partly there are black pebbles. There's a sailing school with catamaran, kayak and surfboard hire. You can park for free in the parking bays on the road. Unfortunately, the only access to the beach is through hotel gardens. So far there's no public way to the beach.



BEACHES
TENERIFE

PLAYA FANABE stretches from the upmarket Del Duque area of the resort to the more budget friendly Torviscas and is also home to the Iceberg Park, a big inflatable iceberg – the only kind of iceberg that isn’t going to melt in these temperatures.


Next along is PLAYA LA PINTA a small pleasant golden sand beach bordered on one end by El Faro’s mock lighthouse and cannon and the Puerto Colón Marina on the other.


A rocky coastline separates Puerto Colón from PLAYA DEL BOBO and PLAYA TROYA I and II (formerly Playa de Las Américas I and II until Adeje reclaimed and renamed this bit of the coast). Three more golden sand beaches with sun beds, thatched umbrellas and plenty of water sports to keep children of all ages amused.


PLAYA DEL CAMISON in front of the smart Sir Anthony hotel. It’s a relaxing golden sand beach backed by palm trees, which slopes gently into aquamarine waters. There are plenty of sun loungers and thatched umbrellas, but it can get quite busy.


El PUERTITO nestling between the resorts on the south and south west coasts, the bay at El Puertito is probably what Tenerife’s southern fishing hamlets looked like before the property developers moved in. Whitewashed buildings, a fish restaurant, aquamarine water, brightly coloured fishing boats and pale gold sand make you feel as though you’re on an island that hasn’t been discovered yet. It’s also popular with ‘unofficial’ campers during summer months. A simple, but picturesque spot to wiggle your toes in the sand; it’s close to resorts in geographical terms only.

A small sign points the way from the TF47 just outside Armeñime on the road west to Los Gigantes.


PLAYA DE ABRIGIUTOS
The road to this beach leads through a new housing development, which looks completely out of place in the barren pumice landscape. Fear not, a series of pale golden sand coves lapped by turquoise waters too tempting to resist dotted along the coast at Los Abades make for a heavenly spot to top up the tan and frolic in the surf.

Take exit 18 sign posted Los Abades from the TF1 and follow the road to the coast.


PLAYA GRANDE
The nearby wind farm might suggest that Playa Grande at Punta de Abona might not be the most comfortable spot to go for that golden glow, but the quiet cream coloured sloping beach is protected by the headland which curves into the sea around the beach, keeping the water and the wind relatively calm. Paths lead to the fishing hamlet above the beach, the Abona lighthouse and a small jetty with an unusual fish sculpture.

Take exit 17 from the TF1 sign posted Poris de Abona.


PLAYA DE LAS TERISITAS
The jewel in the crown of Tenerife’s beaches and without doubt the most spectacular. It’s many people’s idea of what a tropical beach should look like. A crescent shaped, lagoon-like bay with golden sand lapped by aquamarine waters teeming with tropical fish. Add palm trees and a dramatic mountain backdrop and you’ve got a perfect setting. There are changing rooms, toilets, bar restaurants and a large car park discreetly hidden behind the line of palms at the back of the beach. The man made reef makes the enclosed calm water ideal for families with young children. The only downside is that, being the east coast; it can be a tad breezy sometimes. Okay it’s a man made beach, but it looks great.

Approx 8 kilometres beyond Santa Cruz.


PLAYA DEL DUQUE
Another man made affair, which has been developed with panache and imagination. If a beach could feel upmarket, it’s this one. Small enough to feel intimate, it’s striped beach huts and palm frond umbrellas give it an air of St Tropez meets the Caribbean. The large volcanic rock, which borders the beach’s southern side blocks out the concrete vista beyond.

Located at the very western end of Playa de Las Américas, (or as the PR people would say, the ‘exclusive’ resort of Costa Adeje).

PAYA DE LA TEJITA
Another pale golden beach so long and wide you could land a jumbo jet on it, which isn’t beyond the realms of possibility considering it’s right next to the airport. It’s another windy beach, which makes it the ideal location for Granadilla’s annual kite festival in September. The Montaña Roja end of the beach is popular with nudists.

Situated beyond El Médano, on the other side of Montaña Roja.


EL MEDANO
A rarity for a beach on Tenerife, a golden(ish) beach that isn’t man made. One of the longest beaches on Tenerife, book ended on one side by El Médano and Montaña Roja on the other. A bleached wooden boardwalk runs almost the length of the beach passing surreal pumice rock formations and scores of rainbow bright windsurfers and kite-boarders. The presence of these ‘surf dudes’ should warn you that the wind is a constant companion here. It might make pretty patterns in the sand, but it isn’t always ideal for sunbathing. One of the most interesting beaches on Tenerife.

Situated right beside the town of El Medano.


LOS CRISTIANOS
Around the corner from Playa del Camisón is arguably the south of Tenerife’s best beach, Playa Las Vistas, a long golden sand beach which links Playa de Las Américas with Los Cristianos. There are rows upon rows of sun loungers, but the size of the beach absorbs them. A huge fountain at the shoreline near the midway point of the beach keeps sunbathers cool when temperatures go ballistic.

One of the most commendable qualities of Playa Las Vistas is that facilities include specially developed areas for people with mobility problems which include amphibian chairs – part of Arona council’s commitment to creating a barrier free paradise which can be enjoyed by all, able bodied or otherwise.
Los Cristianos boasts not one, but two good beaches. The town beach of Playa Los Cristianos is only marginally less impressive than Las Vistas, but it does overlook the harbour so it’s a great spot for watching the comings and goings of the inter island ferries, pleasure cruises and fishing boats. There’s a volley ball court at the rear of the beach as well as a sailing school for anyone who fancies a bit of tacking and jibing.

The further along the beach you travel, the less people there are and the less developed it is until you reach Playa Callao below Montaña de Guaza, a real get-away-from-it-all beach hardly a stone’s throw from one of the south of Tenerife’s main tourist resorts.


PLAYA SAN JUAN
A pebbled beach set in a sheltered bay beside the town’s harbour. Maybe once, but nowadays a facelift has transformed it into a sandy beach. Whether nature will leave it that way is debatable; it's already taking on a distinctly two-tone look. Although barely a half hour’s drive from the sprawling main southern resorts, this is more Canarian cool, than ‘kiss me quick’in character. Playa San Juan has a quiet style, which will suit people who don’t like their beaches packed.

 Situated on Tenerife’s southwest coast, on the road linking Los Gigantes with Playa de Las Américas.
