Recently, my parents and I spent a wonderful week on the Canary Island Fuerteventura. We hope the 10 pictures selected above do the island enough justice and that further words are not nessecary to fortify its stunning beauty consisting of vast volcanic landscapes and majestic coastlines.

 

Mommy and daddy rented a car -as you might have guessed- to see as much of the island as possible during our stay. Our homebase was a wonderful resort in Costa Calma. When we weren't exploring the island, we were chilling by the pool or at the beach. Costa Calma itself is a very peaceful place, although it might be a tad too boring for adventureseekers.

One of the many pools at SBH Costa Calma Beach Resort. 

Yep, this is what I love: the water.

The beach is right on the resort's doorstep.

A lot of things to explore on the resort's grounds as well. 

 

After a day or two, we rented a car for four days to see more of the island. As I already mentioned before, the 10 pictures that start this article were taken during this intense period of touring. We highly recommend anyone visiting the island to rent a car and discover the beauty Fuerteventura beholds. Let's go back to the 10 sites of our selected pictures and see how I was doing. 

 

1: AGUA OVEJA VIEWPOINT

It might be good to know that Fuerteventura is a bit windier than the other Canary Islands. This was particularly noticable while driving around the Jandia peninsula, going from Morro Jable to Playa de Cofete. The Agua Oveja Viewpoint gives you perhaps the most spectacular panorama Fuerteventura has to offer, overlooking the Western coastline. Of course we just had to get out of the car to make pictures and I especially enjoyed the strong winds. 

 

2: CORRALEJO SAND DUNES

The Sand Dunes at Corralejo are part of Parque Naturel de Corralejo and it is SPECTACULAR. Although it took me some time to get used to the sand, the moment it felt comforable to me I was overjoyed! I hope the pictures below show how much I was intrigued by the dunes.

 

3: MIRADOR SICASUMBRE

On our way to Ajuy, we passed Mirador Sicasumbre, and the view was stunning. It took some walking uphill to reach the viewpoint so daddy hoisted me up in our new Deuter child-carrier, clearly the best seat in town.

 

4: CALETA NEGRA, AJUY

Ajuy is probably best known for the riff caves of Caleta Negra (Spanish for 'Black Bay'). It was quite an adventure reaching the caves, but we did it!

5: PLAYA DEL CASTILLO

The grand coastline of Playa del Castillo is best seen from the small and enchanting fisherman's town El Cottilo. We went there just before we headed towards Corralejo and boy were we in for a surprise! We spend at least 15 minutes trying to grasp the overwhelming beauty. 

6: PLAYA DE COFETE

Playa de Cofete is one of the harder beaches to reach since it's situated on the Westside of the Jandia peninsula, but it's worth it. I really enjoyed the time we spend on the beach and the surroundings were amazing.

7: PUERTO DE LA PEÑA, AJUY

Puerto de la Peña is a small settlement located about 2 kilometers from Ajuy. The view of the coastline is yet another one to remember. This picture was taken after we came back from visiting the riff caves of Caleta Negra. 

 

8: VEGA DE RIO PALMA & 9: NEAR PÁJARA

Yeah, these pictures were quickly taken on the road by mommy and daddy while I was comfortably buckled up. So how do I do in the car during long and intense drives? I do great. I love cars. And check out my Star Wars socks. 

 

10: PLAYA DE JANDIA

Jandia Beach actually rus for over 20 kilometers from Morro Jable all the way to Costa Calma. We stopped several times and it was simply wonderful.
