The Fuerteventura region
Less than 50 miles from Saharan Africa, Fuerteventura has a climate on a par with Florida and Mexico! Guaranteed year around sunshine and cooling Atlantic breezes makes Fuerteventura the ideal destination for someone looking to escape the unpredictable British climate. Easy access to miles of sandy beaches, clean, warm Atlantic water and the unique mountainous terrain that go to make Fuerteventura such a popular destination. Justifiably famous for some of the best beaches in The Canarys, Villa Bocaina is a the perfect base from which to explore.
The El Cotillo / Majanicho area
Villa Bocaina is a 5 minute drive from the small town of Lajares, which has all amenities including local bars and restaurants, a well stocked supermarket, pharmacy and bakeries. Once the lace making centre of the island, Lajares is a typical Spanish town with a very relaxed atmosphere. The traditional sport of Canarian wrestling can be enjoyed here with a brand new arena recently built. Lajares is the epicentre of all things 'watersport' on the island and it has at least three surf shop’s including the famous ‘North shore’ surf shop as well as ‘Magma’ Kiteboarding shop, both offering hire of equipment and tuition.
There is a small traditional market on Saturday mornings, well worth a visit even if it is to enjoy the local atmosphere and a Saturday morning coffee in one of the cafes!
Just a short walk from Villa Bocaina is the small fishing village of Majanicho. Totally devoid of any commercialisation, people visit to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the bay, the extensive coastal walks and the stunning volcanic scenery. Sunrise and sunset are favourite times when the changing colours of the mountains can be breathtaking. The sheltered bay makes it ideal for fishing, swimming, and snorkelling. If the conditions are right, it is a fantastic spot for surfing,windsurfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing.

A compact and bijou property offering all mod cons, and sports equipment for use on the complex. The well equipped kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine provide a hassle free holiday for those wishing to enjoy a quiet week away from the masses. The complex was almost deserted when we visited in early April.
The panoramic views from the bedrooms are stunning, looking north over the shore line it was lovely to enjoy a coffee on the balcony and watch the sun rise over the mountains. The living area faces south, and opens out onto a terrace towards the front of the property. We enjoyed a few BBQ's out here in the evenings.
Villa Bocaina is in a remote location so a car is essential, if you wish to visit some of the remote beaches a 4x4 would be best, as some of the "roads" make for a bumpy ride. Lajares, a 5 minute car ride away provides a wealth of bars and cafes to enjoy as well as a well stocked supermarket. El Cotillo and Corralejo both around 15 minutes away provide excellent beaches, bars and shops.
Fuertaventua is a quiet island, sparsely populated and laid back, Villa Bocaina provided a great base from which to explore the island. We hope to return again soon.
Many thanks for your review. We are obviously delighted that you enjoyed your stay at 'Villa Bocaina' and are considering a return in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact should you require any further information,
Malcolm and Julie.
