Desert scenery by the sea

The island is really popular thanks to its quiet beaches and great water sports, but we’ll start our tour in the centre. Wandering around the old town of Betancuria or the picturesque village of El Cotillo are great ways to make the most of your holidays in Fuerteventura. Another great idea is to go scuba diving and eat fresh fish in the Isla de los Lobos National Park, or hiking in the Corralejo National Park, popularly known as the Fuerteventura desert. Taking a dip in the natural pools at Aguas Verdes is a great way to end the day before admiring the sunset and spectacular views from the Morro Velosa viewpoint.
