Located in the north part of the coast, this resort town is an oasis of sugary sand dunes and blue crystal water! 

Honestly, the road from the airport to Corralejo has some of the best views! Just picture a long highway (the trip takes around 30 min by car) with sand on both sides and the bluest sea, what a dream.

With its laid-back atmosphere and lively harbor, Corralejo is your traditional Spanish vacation spot. It makes a fantastic location for first-time visitors as the town offers lots of fun water sports, plus easy access to the North side of the island and also to the stunning Lobos island. 

Corralejo is home to some of the best beaches on the island like Playa de los Verilitos, Playa Vista Lobos and Grandes Playas Corralejo, the most famous beach in the area that is giving off Maldive vibes!

Fuerteventura is big on water sports, so you can definitely count on catching some fabulous waves here in Corralejo! You can also try kiting, parasailing, jet skiing and stand-up paddleboarding! 

You’ve got lots of cool attractions here, including Parque Natural de Corralejo (map), which boasts expansive stretches of sand dunes and some gorgeous beaches! 

Then there are the things right in the central area of the town like the Acua Water Park, the perfect place to visit if you’re coming with the family.

You should also check out the harbor, the perfect spot to grab a bite and something to drink! There are lots of restaurants and bars there! Tapas Oscar (map) is a great spot to start the night! 

But if you want to continue the night, know that Corralejo is the best area for nightlife on the islands! There are lots of clubs here, like Sunset Lounge (map), where you can listen to live music and dance the night away!

Its tranquil atmosphere and calm beaches bring families from all around to enjoy a fun holiday with their little ones!

The main sandy beach here, Playa del Castillo is protected inside a cove, and luckily, the winds aren’t so strong here, making the beach perfect for swimming with your kids. 

Playa del Castillo also has some sunbeds, umbrellas, toilets and, of course, great restaurants and bars on its seafront promenade where you can go and grab a bite with your family when the sun is too strong! Restaurante La Frasquita (map) is an excellent spot to eat some fresh seafood!

Although Caleta de Fuste doesn’t have as many charming beaches as the other towns on the island, you’ll find plenty of cool attractions that will make your holiday unforgettable! Puerto Castillo Aquarium will probably be your kid’s favorite spot! They offer lots of fun shows and activities!

Then there’s also the Castillo de San Buenaventura (map), a historic site where you can learn more about the town’s past! All these are set in the port area, where you can enjoy some scenic sunsets at one of the cafes. 

Parents, don’t worry, you’re covered too! Golfing is big around Caleta de Fuste, and there’s a fun place called Fuerteventura Golf Club where you can play all day while admiring the stunning mountain views!

3. Morro Jable – nicest part of Fuerteventura

Spacious sandy beach in Fuerteventura with turquoise waters, visitors enjoying the sun, and a palm-lined promenade with white resort buildings on a sunny day

Located right on the southern end of the coast, around a 75-minute drive from the airport, lies Morro Jable, tucked away between the cliffs!

This lovely fishing village has managed to keep its authentic local atmosphere even though it’s a popular holiday spot on the island, especially among German tourists. 

Unlike its sister towns, Morro Jable has a small but super cute Old Town with narrow, winding streets and statues. From there you can climb up a path that leads to a gorgeous viewpoint (map) from where you can admire the beautiful beach and the whole town.

As you make your way down to the harbor you’ll find many restaurants and bars that, as you might’ve guessed, have the best seafood dishes possible. Definitely head to La Farola del Mar restaurant (map), where they serve locally caught fish! 

This town has some of the best resorts for young couples, and this part of the island also has a cool local market, which takes place every Monday and Thursday at the same spot (map) and every Friday at Mercadillo Morro Jable (map).

Many people come to Morro Jable because from here you can easily access the Jandia Natural Park (map) and the Cofete wilderness area. Both are around a 1h drive away from Morro Jable and you can reach them by using public transport or by renting a car

NOTE: Although there is a public transport system, for some reason, it’s hard to find bus schedules, so if you want to explore more remote parts of the island, I’d recommend renting a car. 

Once you get to Playa de Confete or Jandia Park, you’ll remain in awe of the never-ending sand dunes and unique scrubland! 

Luxury hotel

You can take a day off to relax in the spa center of this 5 star, high class place, and end your day with a night swim in one of the 2 swimming pools! It doesn’t get much better than that but did I mention the views are amazing?!

4. Costa Calma – liveliest place in Fuerteventura

Just like the name suggests, this is a pretty calm town, located on the South coast of the island, just a 1h drive away from the airport!

Not only does Costa Calma have some lovely beaches but it is also a paradise for surfing or any water sport! While here, you can try snorkeling, jet skiing, or kayaking! 

Start your mornings with a long sunbathing sesh either on Playa de Costa Calma or Playa Esmeralda! Both are stunning. But if you head to Esmeralda, you can continue your exploration and even reach Sotavento Beach, which is not technically in Costa Calma, it’s like a 10 min drive away from the town, but it’s so gorgeous and pretty secluded!

Whatever you do, save Wednesdays and Sundays for the town market happening in Plaza Hapag (map). I love attending these cute gatherings while I’m on holiday! You get to taste the most delicious fruits and vegetables and go shopping for little souvenirs that will remind you of your vacation. 

Costa Calma doesn’t really have a town center. However, you’ll find a road along the coast surrounded by nature dotted with beach resorts, small shopping centers, bars and restaurants. 

Luxury hotel

I’m sure your muscles will be soaring after all these activities, so relax with a yoga session at one of the best boutique hotels that’s set on a lovely beach! The long outdoor pool has the best views and after dinner at one of the 2 restaurants on-site, you can chill by the fire in the lounge area while drinking a glass of wine!

Where are all my digital nomads and budget travelers? If you’re thinking of exploring this Canary Island while still working, then there’s no better place than the capital, Puerto del Rosario, to set base!

This is the island’s capital and it’s located on the East coast, around a 30 min drive away from Corralejo and near the airport (around a 10 min drive away).

I’ve got to warn you though, this is not a very touristy place, but it sure offers everyone an insight into the local life and you can really get a taste of the real side of Fuerteventura! 

This place is great for digital nomads as it has a few coworking spaces, lots of great hotels, great Wi-Fi connection and more of an urban feel to it! Don’t worry though, you’ll still find 2 beaches where you can enjoy your breaks and evenings! 

Puerto del Rosario is the cultural center of Fuerteventura. Unlike the other towns here, you’ll find a couple of museums that you can visit, like Casa Museo Miguel de Unamuno and the Parque Escultórico open-air museum (map). 

From here, you can take day trips to see the rest of the island either by renting a car or just using public transport. 

But definitely take some time to explore this town too! There is a port area from where you can go on boat trips, and there are lots of restaurants there if you want to indulge in some yummy traditional food!

El Cotillo looks like the ultimate Mediterranean dream holiday destination!

Just picture lots of whitewashed houses set right on the shores, the blue water crashing on the black rocks at the base of the buildings, and the sun shining!

Phew, now that’s something I could get used to! Located on the north side of the island, this town is Fuerteventura’s best spot for romantic walks on the beach and tranquil sunsets near the cliffs!

As you can imagine, it attracts lots of young couples, honeymooners, and tourists looking for a quiet, romantic destination. This remote town used to be a fishing village, and although it became popular among travelers, not everyone hurries to come here.

Just look at the pictures! I feel like this spot should definitely appear in one of those romantic movies! 

There are lots of amazing restaurants where you can enjoy some delicious food. Restaurante La Vaca Azul (map) is a great place that serves seafood dishes and yummy desserts! Take your significant other and enjoy a romantic dinner and some sangria!

For an unforgettable experience, go to the Los Lagos beach (right near El Cotillo), which has the most amazing lava lagoons and turquoise waters!
