Caleta de Fuste
Caleta de Fuste is also known as 'El Castillo' meaning castle which relates to the 18th century watch-tower. This holiday resort boasts a large man made, horse shoe shaped beach covered with golden sand. The beach shelves gently into the water, and has a breakwater making it ideal for children. Further beaches have been made behind the Atlantico Centre creating lagoons. There is a vast number of thatched parasols and sun beds for hire.
Caleta de Fuste is an ideal holiday location for families. It is equally attractive to keen golfers due to the excellent Golf Course, which was home to the Spanish Open in 2004. A second Golf Course has also been built names 'Las Salinas'.
The resort seems to be split up into different areas but you can explore all parts of Caleta by jumping on the mini train which takes you all around the area from the top of chipmunk mountain down to the harbour. At the harbour you will find the Oceanarium where you can book trips, feed fish, see the sea lions or explore an old galleon.
If you get fed up during the day soaking up the sun you may wish to take advantage of the watersports. You may want to hire a jet ski, wind surf, ride on the banana boat, relax on a pedalo, go deep sea fishing, or take a trip on the glass bottom boat from the harbour and see lots of marine life in the beautiful clear water. For the more adventurous, get your adrenaline rushing on a quad bike trail. On a Saturday you can pick up a few bargains at Caleta market, remember to always haggle the price.
There are plenty of things to do in Caleta. During the day you can enjoy some mini golf, archery on the beach, take a lesson at the sand school, feed the chipmunks that live along the beach cliffs (don't worry they are very friendly!) or have a relaxing day at the health spa. At the near by Atlantico Shopping Centre there is a multi screen cinema and a bowling alley, a large 'Spar' supermarket (similar to Asda), boutiques, bars, restaurants and even a 'McDonalds' and 'Burger King'. Why not take a visit to the next village along the coast - Las Salinas. Here you will find a salt museum, a huge whale skeleton and an excellent fish restaurant where the fish is locally caught.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from at night supplying a range of cuisine from all around the world. All the restaurants welcome families and 'The Windmill' near the taxi rank has a children's park in the garden. Fresh fish is a speciality in many restaurants and Tapas is highly recommended. If you want a bit of posh nosh, visit the 'Lighthouse' restaurant in the harbour. It is a little more expensive but well worth it. The bars are a mix of nationalities, but mainly Canarian and English. They all stay open late and you can keep up to date with your favourite team in a sports bar, take the stage for a tune or two in a karaoke bar or enjoy a professional show in one of the hotels. If you wish, take a trip into Puerto del Rosario for some nightlife. English are made very welcome but remember the nightlife there does not really get going until about 2am!
Caleta de Fuste is also an excellent base to explore the rest of Fuerteventura. There are many rent-a-car businesses here that are reasonably priced. Why not hire a 4X4 Jeep and visit the shipwreck on the west of the island (www.flare.net and search for ss america). Then visit the 'Shipwreck Bar' in Puerto del Rosario that has been fitted with relics from the ship including port hole windows and even the toilet doors from the ship. Other places of interest are the 'Zoo' at La Lajita in the south of the island with it's botanical gardens, or visit the beautiful, natural lagoons at 'El Cotillo' in the NW of Fuerteventura, or have a fun filled day at the 'Baku Water Park' in Corralejo.
Back in the resort of Caleta de Fuste you can enjoy a bit of duty free shopping including perfume, cigarettes, booze, souvenirs or electrical goods.
Those of you on self catering breaks may wish to shop for food at the Spar supermarket in the Atlantico Centre, the small supermarkets in Caleta are a little more expensive but sell a good range of English products.
Another worry for parents is if the kids fall ill on holiday. Rest assured that most doctors here speak English.

we enjoyed our stay at this apartment,it had everything you would need for a self catering holiday,only disappointment was there were no pads for the sunbeds witch are shown in photos of the apartment.word of warning if you are going outside to sit on the balcony make sure you have the key with you if you close the door you are locked out wich we did,however we phoned and sally had to come and let us in,my own fault.apartment is handy for all local amenities bars and shops etc.
