Tips for the Region

Fuerteventura is best known for its incredible beaches and year-round sunshine. A paradise for surfers, watersports enthusiasts flock to the island to enjoy the surf conditions and expansive beaches. The western beaches are most popular with surfers while more protected stretches lie in the southeast near Costa Calma. While there are plenty of resorts and tourist facilities on the island, Fuerteventura remains wild and rugged in many areas. We highly recommend taking a car rental road trip in Fuerteventura. Scenic routes such as road 605 take you through lavascapes with amazing views over elevated plains, volcanic mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.

Important Cities

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.

Climate, Cuisine & Traveling with Children

Climate: Famed for its year round sunshine, this hot island is cooled pleasantly by the breeze from the Atlantic. Summer temperatures reach their peak in August with an average high of 82 degrees F, while January is the coolest month with an average high of 69 degrees F.

Cuisine: Due to the hot climate, much of the cuisine revolves around the ocean. Expect a plethora of grilled seafood dishes, often served with potatoes and the delicious mojo hot pepper sauce. The Canary Islands are also known for their excellent goat cheese and the famous Majorero and Palmero cheeses are both made here.

Traveling with Children: The epic beaches on the island give you endless choices for days out. Costa Caleta Beach is a favorite with families thanks to its gentle waters and protected bay location. If you are visiting in November be sure to check out the annual kite festival that takes place in Corralejo. A wide array of watersports and activities such as camel and horseback rides on the beach are widely available throughout Fuerteventura.

Very good experience with all the Sixt Fuerteventura team :

- Have been upgraded on the vehicle

- Got the car right on time, no waiting (the waiting line was empty)

- Had an issue with the trunk that would not open, but all the Sixt team stayed with us for 1 hour to help fix the issue -> I almost missed my flight back, but could get it thanks to the Sixt team and the parking airport staff
