The waves that surf the beaches of Fuerteventura are powerful and consistent. Places like the beaches of Corralejo, Sotillo, Sotavento, La Pared or Esquinzo are some of the most interesting locations to dare to surf each of the waves that cross its coast.


If you have something to try on the island of Fuerteventura that is the majorera cuisine. If you have something to try on the island of Fuerteventura that is the majorera cuisine. Its essences, aromas and flavors come from the first settlers of the island: the maxos or majoreros. And before the arrival of the European conquerors, these settlers based their survival on livestock, fishing, shellfishing and an undocumented form of agriculture.

Some of the most traditional recipes of the island are sancocho canario, kid, gofio or papas arrugás. You can also taste the majorero cheese, leche machanga or frangollo. All this together forms a good example of the most outstanding gastronomy of the island.

Rural and nature tourism

Fuerteventura was declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 2009. More than a dozen protected areas, fauna unique in the world, more than twenty species of cetaceans and four species of sea turtles make up the animal kingdom present on the island.

A place whose landscape is dominated by the Tindaya Mountain, 400 meters above sea level. An almost sacred site with a very peculiar history. Did you know that the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida designed a project to turn Tindaya into a monumental work? The author of such recognizable works in Spain as the Peine de los Vientos or the Elogio del Horizonte chose this place to create a work, in his words, “useful for all mankind”. However, his project to empty the mountain inside and create a space that, despite being approved in 1995, ended up being discarded in 2019 by the Cabildo of Fuerteventura. Tindaya Mountain is today one of the most visited enclaves of the island and a place of silence, rest and spectacular scenery.

Would you like to walk around the historical capital of Fuerteventura? In Betancuria, a village founded around 1404 by Jean de Bethencourt, one could see the prosperity of an island besieged by pirates and which based its economy on rain-fed cereals. Declared a historical site in 1979, Betancuria also has an exceptional sample of religious architecture (Franciscan convent of San Buenaventura, churches of Santa Maria and La Concepcion or the hermitages of Santa Ines and Nuestra Señora de la Peña) as well as the museums of Sacred Art, Archaeological and Ethnographic Fuerteventura.

A movie set

Fuerteventura has been one of the most used scenarios in recent years by major film studios to shoot some of the most blockbuster movies of recent years. Filmmakers such as Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings), Robert Zemeckis (Allies), Ron Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Terry Gilliam (The Man Who Killed Don Quixote) or Álex de la Iglesia (30 Coins) have chosen the island as a set to shoot some sequences of these films. 

In addition, if you are looking for a unique place in the world, we recommend you to go to the beach of El Hierro, where you will find miniature rock formations that will surprise you… On the beach of Bajo de la Burra, some curious “pebbles”, which are nothing more than calcareous algae, in the shape of popcorn. These stones lived in the sea and were washed ashore by the waves. When they arrive, the effect of the elements around them causes them to slowly erode and acquire this peculiar shape.
