Silky sands and windsurfer-flecked waters
Located on the east coast of Fuerteventura, Caleta de Fuste holidays are lively, sun soaked and full of activities. Spend your days basking in the warm sunshine on the golden sands of the beach or take to the sea and try some of the many water sports available. Those wanting to explore some of the island’s fascinating culture can enjoy Canarian cuisine and Spanish delicacies in the many restaurants or simply people watch in a street side café. Alternatively, head to the bustling market and pick up bargains on gifts, local produce and much more.
Couples will love luxury Caleta de Fuste holidays, and the resort lends itself to families with children of all ages. The purpose built town is filled with shops with souvenirs and trinkets, as well as family friendly restaurants for little ones wanting to try something new or stick to favourites from home. If you’re travelling with energetic kids – or adults – windsurfing, snorkelling and even scuba diving with turtles are available from the beach.
Caleta de Fuste is the youngest town on the island, with its purpose built nature lending itself to luxury holidays. You will find plenty of amenities, including a large horseshoe shaped beach, bustling harbour area and hotel complexes with amenities for everyone. Families will enjoy a day out at the water park, while adults can head to the professional standard golf course or book a romantic sunset cruise through the sparkling waters which lap the coast.

Like the rest of the Canaries, Fuerteventura is warm and sunny all year round. The temperature rarely drops below the mid-teens even in the winter months, and things only get hotter in July and August, when they often push past 30°C. You’ll find the island’s trade winds take the edge off the heat, though.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills in Fuerteventura include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
