The Canary Islands region
Fuerteventura was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO on 26 May 2009.
Located just 100 kilometres off the coast of north Africa, it is the second biggest of the islands, after Tenerife, and has the longest beaches in the archipelago. The island is a destination for sun, beach and water sports enthusiasts. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and temperatures here rarely fall below 18 °C (64 °F) or rise above 32 °C (90 °F). There are no fewer than 152 beaches along its coastline — 50 kilometres of fine, white sand and 25 kilometres of black volcanic shingle.
Fuerteventura is the oldest island in the Canary Islands dating back 20 million years to a volcanic eruption from the Canary hotspot. The majority of the island was created about 5 million years ago and since then has been eroded by wind and weather. On the seabed off the west coast of the island rests a block of rock 22 km long and 11 km wide, which appears to have slid off the island largely intact at some point in prehistory, similar to the predicted future collapse of Cumbre Vieja, a geological fault on the neighbouring island, La Palma. The last volcanic activity in Fuerteventura was between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago.
The highest point in Fuerteventura is Mount Jandía (807 m) in the south west part of the island. Geographical features include Istmo de la Pared which is 5 km wide and is the narrowest part of Fuerteventura. The island is divided into two parts, the northern portion which is Maxorata and the south west part called the Jandía peninsula. The island is the least settled in the Canary Islands.
The climate on Fuerteventura is pleasant throughout the year. The island is also often referred to as the island of eternal spring. The sea adjusts the temperature making the hot Sahara winds blow away from the island. The island's name in English translates as 'strong fortune' or 'strong wind', the Spanish word for wind being 'viento'. During the winter months, temperatures average a high of 22 °C (72 °F) and a low of around 15 °C (59 °F), whereas during the summer a mean high of 35 °C (95 °F) and a low of 20 °C (68 °F) can be expected. Precipitation is about 147 mm per year, most of which falls in autumn and winter. October is the month with highest rainfall.
A sandstorm known as the Calima (similar to the Scirocco wind that blows North from the Sahara into Europe) blows southwestward from the Sahara Desert and can cause high temperatures, low visibility and drying air. Temperatures during this phenomenon rise temporarily by approximately 10 degrees Celsius. The wind brings in fine white sand, visibility can drop to between 100 to 200 m (328.08 to 656.17 ft) or even lower and can even bring African locusts to the island.
The island is home to one of the two surviving populations of the threatened Canarian Egyptian Vulture. It is also inhabited by many wild dogs and cats. On the barren, rocky land there are Barbary ground squirrels and geckos. Fuerteventura also hosts several migratory and nesting birds. The island has significant populations of the collared dove, common swifts and several finch species especially in the vicinity of holiday developments.
Despite its arid climate, the island is also home to a surprisingly large insect fauna. Butterflies which commonly occur on the island include the clouded yellow (Colias hyale) and the Bath White (Pontia daplidice) which feeds on xerophytic cruciferae. The island is also home the Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) and its close African relative Danaus chrysippus. Around holiday developments such as Caleta de Fuste, water is relatively abundant, and dragonfly species including the Blue Emperor, Anax imperator and the Scarlet Darter, Crocothemis erythraea can be found. The islands sand dunes and shoreline are home to a number of bee and wasp species including the large Eumenid caterpillar hunting wasp, Delta dimiatipenne and the striking blue banded bee, (Amegilla cavifrons).
Hawkmoths also occur on the island. One of the more notable species is Hyles tithymali which feeds on endemic spurges such as Euphorbia regis-jubae. Acherontia atropos, the Deaths-head Hawkmoth also occurs on the island presumably feeding on members of the Solanaceae, for example, Datura innoxia and Nicotiana glauca which are common weeds in the vicinity of human habitation.
Sites of interest include Corralejo and El Jable to the north which are made up of fine sand dunes whilst the south is filled with long beaches and remote bays. The constant winds blowing onto the beaches provide a paradise for windsurfing. Surfing is common on the west and north coasts where there are large waves. Windsurfing is common around Corralejo and Playas de Sotavento and wave sailing (windsurfing on the waves) on the coast along the northern half of the island. El Cotillo is a small fishing village in the north-west of the Island famous for a very long beach to the south of the village and few very calm beaches to the north. The northern beaches frequented by snorkeling enthusiasts and sun worshippers alike are referred to as lakes by the locals.
At Cofete on the western side of Jandía a remote and imposing house - Villa Winter - looks out to sea across wide and generally empty beaches. Despite being one of the most beautiful part of Fuerteventura Cofete has very little touristic facilities.
The cuisine is fairly basic due to the customs and climate conditions. They share this simplicity with the other Canary islands, and similarly to them, they use a large quantity of fish. They also use whatever they can grow in the near-barren land. This includes papas arrugadas, a dish of wrinkled potatoes usually served with mojo, which is a hot pepper sauce or with puchero canario, a meat stew.
Seafood is prepared in many ways traditionally, such as pejines (salted fish), jareas, or sancocho (a type of stew) made from fish, generally the grouper, corvina or sama, boiled after salting, and served with mojo, potatoes, or gofio (a type of grain). People are also very keen on the mussels and limpets collected on the island's coasts.
They also use meat such as beef and pork to make different dishes or simply to for braising, but their main meat is goat, both from the kids and from the older animals. They eat the goat roasted or stewed. Goats are not only useful for their meat - the Fuerteventurans also use the milk to make the cheese majorero, which has won many prizes. The majorero is mostly made of goats milk, and occasionally it is up to 15% ewes milk. It is cured in pimento oil or gofio meal. Majorero and palmero cheese are the only two Canarian cheeses with protected denomination of origin.
Corralejo is a town and resort located on the northern tip of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, facing the small islet of Lobos (Islote de Lobos). It is placed in the municipality of La Oliva.
Corralejo is approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) square, making it the largest holiday resort on the island. At its centre Corralejo remains a traditional fishing village. However, there are many new buildings behind and to the side of the town. Along the waterfront there is a promenade that is lined with cafes and restaurants. From the port there is a regular ferry service to Lanzarote.
The beaches in Corralejo are the resort's major attraction. The area has 7 miles (11 km) of fine sand starting 2 miles (3.2 km) outside of Corralejo, along with some smaller bays along the coast. In addition, there are several miles of sand dunes located nearby, which have been designated as a nature reserve. The waters around Corralejo are clear and an intense shade of blue, but are affected by strong currents. The town's beaches are somewhat more sheltered and have a band of volcanic rock along the shoreline.Every week end, at Campario Commercial Center, there is a fair of local products, including ecological ones, and hand crafts.
The small Lobos Island is only 3,5 km far from Corralejo Port, and Lanzarote is 13,5 km away. There are ships that links those places with Corralejo several times a day.
There are fishermen that organize fishing excursions on demand. If you are interested, pay a visit to the port and ask local people.
It is a testing desert style course, which will also provide an excellent driving range and practice chipping and putting greens.
Centered in the heart of the La Oliva Municipality La Oliva golf is accessible from the resort towns of El Cortillo, Lajares, Corralejo and La Oliva.
The town of El Cotillo is only 15 km from Corralejo, and you can find good beaches and fresh fish. Betancuria is at 50 km from Corralejo. In the way you can visit Tindaya, the mythic mountain of Fuerteventura.

"What can I say: Perfect!!"
We had a very pleasant stay in this villa. Communication with the owner was fine. We walked around in Brisas del Mar and my opinion is, that the villa is in a better condition like the most others. The garden of the villa is one of the greatest and best, because there are different places for the sunloungers. And you would be happy about this if it is windy. All the equipment was in very good condition. Everything was very comfortable and we felt like being at home. What more can I say!?
The 'maid' was very friendly and helpful, I think the owner made a good choice with her. For the owner I hope, that all his guests will appreciate this comfortable home.
Result: Absolute advisable. Because we felt at home, we will come back.

"A very nice place to stay"
From booking to returning, we had a very pleasant stay at this Villa. We had to wait around 20 minutes for the cleaner to bring the keys when we arrived but it was no problem and she was very apologetic and showed us all the facilities in the villa. The villa was clean and very comfortable, the pool area was very nice. We stayed for 11 nights and had 2 visits from the pool man and a visit from the gardener. The location is very quiet and a 10 to 15 minute stroll to the centre of Corralejo. There are a few local bars and restaurants 5 minutes away and a very good bakery! We didn't have a car as we wanted a restful break, we used the local buses which ran very regularly and were very reasonably priced. The local taxis were also very reasonable around 3.50 euros from the centre back to the villa. On the whole, just what we needed.
