Surfing and Windsurfing
Windsurfers and surfers flock to Fuerteventura all year round, so if want to learn either sport or brush up on your skills, you're in the perfect place. The conditions and climate are ideal for both pursuits, with warm, clear seas, brisk Atlantic winds, and expert tuition and equipment hire available from the top-class schools in the main resorts. The best places for windsurfing novices and experts are Corralejo and the Jandia peninsula, the latter being the site of the annual world windsurfing championships; whilst surfers of all abilities can choose from the many excellent beaches. The waves can get quite strong in some places, so it's important to get proper tuition if you're a beginner.
If you're keen to get in some golf during your holiday, Fuerteventura has a superb course at Costa Caleta. The 18-hole, 70-par course is delightfully lush with green fairways, swaying palm trees and challenging water hazard lakes connected by narrow brooks, all offering delightful views out over the sea. Specially landscaped to counter the breezes that can come in from the Atlantic, its greens and fairways have been designed to be extra large and wide, and there's a number of easier holes for players wanting to compete below par. Buggies, trolleys and clubs are available for hire and there's a free bus service to the course running regularly from the centre of Caleta. Look out for our golf symbols at selected hotels.
Watersports from beaches including scuba-diving, snorkelling, and fishing. Mountain-biking is also a favoured activity all over the island with special cycle tracks on the roads. Many of the island's complexes have tennis courts, crazy golf courses. A PADI diving centre can also be found on the island, as well as go-karting, horse-riding and a minigolf course. Walking, jeep safaris, fishing trips, ferry trips to Lanzarote are readily available, and Corralejo offers a waterpark and bowling.
