    Suncream - lots of!!!!!

    by Kristymamoo Updated Jun 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a hat. I don't normally bother coz I've got really thick hair so sun on my head doesn't usually bother me. But, I got sunburn on my head and now it's peeling - NOT Pretty!!!!

    Also, if you want to get off the main tracks make sure you take some good shoes. The ground is very rough and loose - NOT flip-flop friendly!!!!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It's really hot!! The high winds here though lull you into a false sense of security by cooling you down a bit so it's really easy to burn.

    Gallons of sunblock!

    by d_mac Written Apr 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: You could travel very lightly if you wanted. T-shirts, shorts, sunblock, and a toothbrush were all I needed most of the time.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It depends what you intend to do: sandals for the beach & trainers for walking most other places. T-shirts and shorts during the day. Maybe jeans & one jumper or sweatshirt if you're concerned about chilly evenings or covering up the sunburn.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunblock! Beware that, with the ever-present wind, you may not realise you're being burnt. I saw some very sorry sights on the plane flying home. I bet they hurt for a full week :o(

    Photo Equipment: ...anything sand-proof, wrapped in a sand-proof bag!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A wind-break and some sturdy guy-ropes wouldn't go amiss

    Miscellaneous: Did I mention sunblock???

    SUNCREME & ICE !!

    by Nixter01 Written Apr 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you are travelling just make sure you have PLENTY of water, I know its the same any country, but please if you go into the Island (off the coastal line that is) then its a must, as you don't know when you will see the next shop or village, and if you do, they will probably be closed !

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Cotton clothing is all I can say. that goes for women and men, anything heavier than coton and you will just sweat to death, and bring either sandals and canvas shoes or something that at least lats the air circulate your feet.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A first aid kit would be helpful, stuck in the middle of nowhere and hurt its hard to find medical help, so take your own, as well as combs,bodyspray coolers, insect repellents etc..

    Photo Equipment: As much of it and the best!
    The views are out of this world high in them hills, so be prepared to have your breath taken away....LITERALLY !

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Fuerteventura is not really a camping Island, well I wouldn't do it anyway, cause you'd get blown away, and you would certainly have your patience tested putting a tent up in those winds! So all I say there is rather you than me and good luck!

    Miscellaneous: Plenty of sun lotion, a hand fan if out and about, comfy shoes for walking, and plenty of film in yuor camera!

    Just taking a walk.

    Miscellaneous: You really wouldn’t believe that this was in the middle of the Holiday season. I love a walk on the beach, especially on a warm day, with no croud.
