Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, located just off the west coast of Africa. It enjoys a subtropical climate and along with its rocky-desert landscapes and volcanic mountains the views are quite simply breathtaking. This beautiful island is less developed than its neighbours, Tenerife and Gran Canaria, with all the hotels and golf courses within close proximity of each other, making it a more intimate option. Fuerteventura boasts the best and longest beaches in the Canaries and due to the Atlantic waves is popular with water sports. The two golf courses on the island are both of championship standard and located in the Antigua region, which is a short distance from the airport.
