Local Area: The closest amenities are a 15/20 minute stroll at the Atlantico Centre. There are several bars and restaurants here, as well as good quality shops and a supermarket. There is a bowling alley and children's entertainment area.
The whole area has been tastefully designed and has landscaped gardens and a large promenade leading to two lagoon beaches.
A further 15 mins walk would take you into Caleta De Fuste itself, with it's golden sandy bay, Marina and an extensive selection of shops, restaurants and entertainment.
The local entertainment is 'low key', piano bars and family 'al fresco' dining.
The local taxi service is very efficient and inexpensive.
The Island: I would recommend hiring a car for part, if not all of your stay. There are inlets and bays that still feel as if they have never been discovered, before your visit.
Apart from the incredible beaches, there are inland areas and places of interest to visit.
