Puerto del Rosario is the capital of Fuerteventura, served by a large ferry port that brings in cruise ships from the surrounding islands. The city has two sandy white beaches, Playa Blanca to the south and the more sheltered Playa Chica in the center. Be sure to take a stroll through the town to see over 50 works of public art installed throughout the city and if you need to shop head over to the Centro Comercial Las Rotondas.
*Antigua *is set in the heart of the island and this charming town has whitewashed houses, historic monuments and picturesque windmills. It became the capital in 1834 after Betancuria and we highly recommend taking your rental car on the scenic drive from Antigua through Betancuria to the extraordinary viewpoint at Las Peñitas.
Las Playitas, a scenic coastal fishing town, has retained its authenticity despite being close to the commercial center of Gran Tarajal. The trademark whitewashed houses of Fuerteventura line the hillside and contrast with a black sandy volcanic beach. The local restaurants serve excellent fresh fish, straight from the ocean.
