    You can't really go wrong with a water park for a family day out.

    The water park in Corallejo was clean, well maintained and well staffed. There was more than enough to entertain the whole family. As well as the main slides there is also a play area for younger children and an adventure/assault course type thing for the more adventerous. We had a great day out here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a day out to keep the whole family entertained.

    The Dunes of Corallejo

    Wow!!

    The trip to Fuerteventura would be worthwhile just to see this!!! It was amazing to see - we were totally awestruck.
    I read a few postings about the dunes before I went away so I was aware that they were something special but I wasn't expecting something this good. It is impossible to describe the wonder and beauty of this small part of Fuerteventura - you have to see it to understand....

    Surfing El Cotillo

    by johnnieaka2002 Written May 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    wish I brought me own board!

    Kite surfing and wind surfing are more popular here but there is a good break at the north end of El Cotillo beach. The swell is protected by the cliffs here so often works even when the rest of the beach is blown out. There are rocks here though so take care and watch the locals before you go in especially when going for the long lefts - you could end up in the cliffs themselves. This is not a beach for beginners althought the schools take people out further up the beach where it's a wee bit less gnarly. Best break we found on the island though so give it a go. It's about 20 minutes drive from Corralejo and there's a bus service if you don't hire a car.

    quad biking

    by johnnieaka2002 Written May 29, 2007

    You can go quad biking through the volcanic landscape for about 40 euros. Some excursions are better than others as they offer a bit of a historic and nature talk as you go round. Our guide didn't speak any English unfortunately but we still had a blast.

    Betancuria Rural Park (I)

    by jantichm Updated Dec 26, 2006

    Betancuria was declared Park by Law in 1987. Furthermore this space has been declared like zone of special protection for the birds.

    The area is extremely arid except for some valleys inside of the Park. The views are quite superb although sometimes the wind can be a problem.

    It is not difficult to find ground squirrels inside of the park.

    Las Dunas de Corralejo

    Las Dunas de Corralejo is a Nature Reserve located in the northern part of the island.

    The park comprises a large area of dunes, a lavascape, and a volcanic cone (Montaña Roja).

    Unfortunately the Reserve is strongly threatened by the property speculation. In fact you will see a huge and ugly hotel inside of it.

    Vallehebron is a nice and relative fertile valley (for the Fuerteventura standards). Landscape is characterised by two large U-shaped ravines. You can enjoy the graduated terraces built into the slope.

    It was building in th 18th century and it is locate in La Oliva. Probably it the most interesting historical building of Fuerteventura.

    It was the official residence of the 'Coronelato', the military authority on the island.

    It has been restored recently.

    The sunday market

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Jul 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Caleta De Fuste there used to be a market every sunday where people from Africa come over and sell things in the centre of the resort. Beware of people putting jewelry on you and then trying to make you buy it. But nice to go and have a look around.

    Chipmonk mountain

    IF IT HAS NOT BEEN BUILT OVER BY NOW!!!! It was a good place to walk right to the top of with amazing views back down over the resort and sea. You could see all the little chipmonks running around and i think you could feed them peanuts!

    henna tattoo

    In the resort of Caleta De Fuste people set up little stools where you can go and choose a design and have a henna tattoo done. It wont last too long if you are going to be swimming and putting sun cream on so better to have it done just before you go home.

    Betancuria

    We visited these villages ina day trip around the island. Betancuria used to be the capital. We visited the church and a gallery full of arts and metal goats! We also visited a goat cheese making factory which had a little shop where you could buy some cheese.

    Windsurfing

    Incase you get board of sunbathing and swimming there are plenty of watersports to do. From surfing and windsurfing, if your not too good at those you can just have a mess around in a pedalow and top up your tan.

    View of Los Lobos

    There are some of the best beaches at this end of the island and lots of sand dunes to roll down. There also seemed to be plenty of shops and restaurants and was maybe lively than Caleta. From here you can take a boat trip to the tiny island of Lobos and have lunch and sunbathing over there.

    White Houses of Las Playitas

    It is a very nice quite, genuine Canarian village with a couple of sea food restaurants. The village is composed of white houses climbing up the hills from the sea. If you want to escape from mass tourismus I would recommand you these village.
