Fuerteventura is that rare gem – there's plenty to do and see but in laidback and uncrowded surrounds. This daytrip to the centre of the island will explore the historic town of Betancuria and the fishing village of Ajuy and take in attractions such as an aloe vera plantation and farms.
Setting off in a comfortable eight-seater minibus, your first stop is the aloe vera plantation. Next up is the polka-dotted Moorish-influenced lighthouse overlooking Las Playitas beach. And at a farm, you'll enjoy an olive oil tasting. Then, in Ajuy, you can check out the view from the chalk cliffs overlooking the black beach and the fishing boats.
Later, a scenic drive through the mountains will take you to the whitewashed colonial town of Betancuria. See St Mary's church, whose simple exterior belies its richly decorated interior. There'll be a cheese-tasting session at a nearby goat farm, before you round off the day with a traditional Canarian late lunch and a visit to the cheese museum in Antigua.
