IS IT FOR ME?
We do need to make it very clear that if your idea of the perfect holiday consists of non-stop partying and clubbing with raging nightlife right on your doorstep, then this is definitely not for you!!
If you are seeking peace and quiet, rest and relaxation, with all basic needs within a short walk, a really comfortable base centrally situated from which to explore a beautiful island, with amazing beaches to keep the whole family happy then this is definitely for you!!
With it's crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches, Fuerteventura is perfect for all types of surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving and fishing!! All around the seafront in Calete is a beautiful walk and from the harbour this continues on to the next village, approximately 2 miles in each direction. This is a beautiful walk for children as it is buggy friendly and you can feed the chipmunks.
If you enjoy the simple things in life like wonderful weather, beaches to die for, swimming in clear turquoise waters, gentle pottering and exploring, watching incredible sunsets whilst sampling superb local food and wine we can assure you that you will be more than happy and will probably fall in love with the island the same as we have!!
The Fuerteventura region
Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary islands with an average year round temp of 22C making it an ideal holiday location any time of year. The Island is serviced by Easyjet, Ryanair, Condor, Aer Lingus and numerous charter flights. Car hire is convenient and cheap way to get around the Island and there is a wide selection of car hire agencies to choose from.
Caleta de Fuste
Caleta de Fuste is located 8 km south of Fuerteventura airport and is only a 10 minutes drive. It is ideal for families, couples and golfers, and has something for everyone.
The main beach is set around a large horseshoe bay with golden sands shelving gently into the Atlantic. It is ideal for families. A small train runs from the harbour through the town and up Chipmunk Mountain every 30 minutes and costs 1 euro each way.
The water temperature in Fuerteventura varies between 22C in summer and 19C in winter, making it an ideal year round destination for snorkelling, diving, surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding. The regular force 3-5 winds provides ideal all year round sailing conditions. The port in Caleta offers jet-skiing, windsurfing and diving and sea excursions on the Oceanarium Explorer, a glass bottom submarine-style craft. The local catarmaran boasts a high success rate spotting dolphins and whales.
There are numerous restaurants in the resort catering for all international tastes. Spanish, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Greek, Italian, English, Irish, Scottish and Portugese restaurants can be found. At the Atlantico Centre you will find a Burger King and a McDonalds close by. There are also plenty of bars which are open from breakfast until late and most of them serve food. Prices are very reasonable and an English breakfast can be as little as 2.50 euro.
Fuerteventura has 2 golf courses and both are within a 5 minute drive of the villa. They both have spectacular views of the Atlantic. The Fuerteventura Golf Club has 18holes and is a par 70. A round of golf costs about EUR 49 and golf buggies and clubs are available for hire. The Las Salinas Golf course is also an 18 hole par 70 and also offers a driving range. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are available at the club houses from 8am to 8pm.
There are numerous supermarkets in Caleta and at the nearby Atlantico shopping centre there is a large Eurospar which sells all your holiday requirements including fresh fish, meat and vegetables. This supermaket also stocks a large selection of Gluten Free foods making it an ideal choice for Coeliac sufferers. A brand new Mercadona supermarket will be opening on September 27th 2012.
What to do in the Evening.
As most hotels have a bar there will be some type of evening entertainment programme. Entertainment usually starts around 8.30 with Mini Discos for children with the main entertainment on from 9.30 until 10.30 – 11pm. I would recommend going to the Barcelo Fuerteventura Hotel and the Barcelo Club near the harbour. They have musical tribute acts, such as The Beatles, Abba, Bee Gees, Flamenco, acrobatic shows, magicians etc. Their own entertainment teams do versions of musicals such as The Lion King, Cats, Les Miserables, Grease and other tribute shows. All the bars and shows are child friendly so the whole family can enjoy.
Activities for Children
Oasis Park Zoo. It is worth spending a whole day at Oasis Park Zoo which is 45 minutes south at La Lajita. The animals are well looked after in a beautiful setting. Admission is 18 Euro for over 11yrs, 10 Euro for children 3 – 11. The zoo is set in 800,000 square metres of natural landscape, with more than 250 types of animals.
