Fuerteventura - our guide for your holiday in Fuertaventura

The island of Fuerteventura is perhaps best suited to Canary Islands family holidays with its extensive beaches and plenty of activities, both water and land-based, as well as boasting arguably the two best adventure parks on the Canary Islands - Baku Water Park and the adventure wildlife park - Oasis Park.

Although Fuertaventura is a great beach destination where it's possible to find a stretch of sand and surf to truly call your own, there are also plenty of activities to suit all the family so that no one can ever complain of being bored! Operators have fast become family friendly, so it's a great location to introduce kids to new sports and pastimes such as fishing, diving, sailing, biking and buggies.

Sport fishing action on the island is centered on Corralejo, with half-day to 5-day fishing trips available. The coastal waters around Fuertaventura offer big game fish such as marlin, tuna, dorado, shark and wahoo.  Fishing operators here are flexible with their trips offering bespoke charters and using their fishing boats for leisure trips to spot turtles, whales and dolphins or swim and snorkel with a picnic lunch - again catering to all the family's requirements.
