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.
