Car: not necessary
The beaches of Fuerteventura are truly outstanding and certainly the best in the Canary Islands. The sand is a pinkish white, due to the coral component, and the sea is clean and crystal clear, so swimming, snorkeling and diving are great. The beaches near Corralejo are safe for swimming in normal conditions and the principal ones have lifeguards during the season. Excellent windsurfing is available, off the more exposed beaches and a windsurfing school is nearby. A magnificent kilometres long beach begins a few minutes walk from the villa and the sheltered sandy bay, almost adjacent, is a wonderful place for young children. Corralejo harbour has frequent ferries to Lanzarote that connect to excursions to the fascinating volcanoes and lava fields. Deep sea fishing and other sea excursions can be booked there. A certified diving school is also there. So too are many restaurants. The mountainous centre of the island provides for many scenic excursions by car.
Other Activities: Deep sea fishing
Golf: There is a good golf course that hosted the Spanish Open in 2004. It is located at Caleta del Fuste, just beyond the airport. It is associated with the 5* Elbe Palace Golf Hotel and can be reached in 35 minutes by car from the villa.
