Fuerteventura - the "Endless Summer Island"...

 Fuerteventura - Paradise Island
The island

Since ancient times know as the "Fortunate Islands", the Canary Islands enjoy a permanent subtropical climate refreshed by the Ocean breeze and the Trade Winds, with warm waters and consistent swell all year round. 

It is the perfect location for both: experienced surfers and total beginners - always better to learn in warm waters!

Fuerteventura is the second largest island and also the least populated island of the Canarian archipelago. Eighty kilometres off Morocco and the African coast, it has the best climate of all the islands. Over 300 days sunshine and just 12 days rainfall a year, have created Europe''s only desert. The island with its unique landscape of volcanoes, white sand dunes and turquoise waters has more sandy beaches than any other island in the archipelago including the famous 25 km sandy beach at Sotavento formed by fine white sand from the nearby sahara desert.

The island currently has three natural parks: the Dunas de Corralejo and Isla de Lobos in the north and the Jandia Peninsula to the south. The island has recently been declared "Reserva de la biosfera"and its natural state has been almost completely preserved.

 Fuerteventura - Surf Paradise
The Hawaii of Europe

Traveling surfers discovered the islands as a surf destination in the eighties. Here they found a island chain of volcanic origin, based off the continental shelf surrounded by deep waters in a subtropical climate and the trade-wind zone. Fuerteventura has a very laid-back island style, warm water and quality waves often compared to Hawaii, giving way to the Canary Islands becoming known among surfers as the Hawaii of Europe.

Surf Spots

Year round consistent swells and spots holding waves at all levels await surfers travelling to Fuerteventura. The northern tip of Fuerteventura around Corralejo, just across from Lanzarote, is the main surfing area on the island, with long sandy beaches and reef breaks on the western, northern and eastern shores. There are more than 50 surf spots within a distance of 25 km, catering for all levels, from easy beach breaks for beginners up to long walls for manoeuvres & tricks to solid tube riding and big wave action, featuring some true world class breaks.

In general, surf spots are well away from the main tourist activity and are frequented only by surfers. The waves at the north shore are long and perfect and most are reef breaks. There are also very long sandy beaches at the east and west coast, perfect for beginners.

The water temperature varies between 18º C in winter and 24º C in summer and the weather is warm all year long, with a 23ºC average in winter! Warm water all year round and people surf in board shorts or short wetsuits!
