Fuerteventura is a magic island that has kept a unique identity. It is not overloaded by tourism, it is more or less free from highrise buildings - and the beaches are spectacular. I have been to all the islands, but Fuerteventura is the best - and definitely worth a trip. I also recommend it for the summer season. Beautiful climate, and very comfortable compared to the heat around the Mediterranean.

El Cotillo, near Corrallejo, is a peaceful country. I recommend staying at the "SUNSET" right on the beach with a lagoon where you can swim even in rough seas. Nearby are some of the best restaurants on the island. In nearby Corallejo you'll find nightlife for those who like to stay up.

Rent a car, it costs very little you can see the whole beautiful island! Each area is different, every place has a different beach and sea .... indescribable and unique places ... YOU MUST GO! The climate is always nice, hot during the day and just right at night, it's a magical place to go, 5 hours' flight from Italy. And it's much quieter than all the other Canary Islands.

It's an island you can't help loving, the only problem is that there aren't any direct flights from Rome. From February to November it's always worth to taking a week's vacation in the beautiful waters. As you admire the sand dunes you get the impression that you are in the desert. On the west side that faces the Atlantic Ocean, there are stupendous cliffs.

You need to rent a car, possibly a jeep, because many beaches are remote and accessible only by unpaved roads. The island does, however, have taxis that don't cost much, apart from this, there are also buses that go from north to south throughout the day.

Let yourself be captivated by the ever-present, but not impertinent wind. The fine sand caressed by the wind creates a perfect union between the earth and the crystal clear waters, the ideal conditions for windsurfing. You can go on excursions to nearby Lanzarote, a volcanic island which offers both excitement and relaxation.

Any time of year is good for visiting Fuerteventura. There is very little rain and you can swim from March to November. I swam in october and it was fine. If possible, avoid the high season in July and August when everyone goes on vacation, the costs are higher and the service isn't as good.

It's characteristic for its sand dunes that make it unique and unmistakable. If you unexpectedly parachuted over it, it would look like a desert with long beaches. It's very windy and popular with surfers. I recommend it for those who want to spend a quiet holiday with sun and sea.

It's very cheap in this time of economic crisis, the houses are selling for very little right now, it's just right for those who love the quiet beaches, at the same time there are well made resorts will lots of pubs and restaurants. The locals are very helpful and cheerful, despite the crisis.
