Like beaches? Fuerteventura has 150km (93 miles) of wonderful sand beaches and crystal-clear water. All you need to do is choose what kind of beach you like: small and intimate, vast and broad, calm or wavy. Jandia’s beaches are perhaps the most famous, with warm turquoise water and 10km (6 miles) of sand. Indeed, Jandia Natural Reserve and Corralejo Nature Reserve are playgrounds for all kinds of travelers. The dunes at Corralejo are the largest of the whole Canary archipelago and are home to diverse animal and plant species you’ll see nowhere else. For a great view of the area, hike up to the Pico de la Zarza, Fuerteventura’s highest point at 807m (246ft), or simply play a round at the gorgeous Jandia Golf Course. Lobos Island is another natural gem for wildlife and watersports. With mask and snorkel, you can swim among grouper, damselfish, lizardfish, parrotfish, octopus, seahorses and possibly even rays or angel sharks. No people live on the island since the lighthouse-keeper left, in the 1960s, but you may meet some monk seals. The food on Fuerteventura is great. The majorera goats in particular are known for their excellent cheeses, but you can also taste great preserves and honey. Fancy some seasoning? The Salinas del Carmen and its attendant Salt Museum reveal how important this industry has been in Fuertaventuran history.
