Fuerteventura has sun all year round and the largest and most beautiful beaches of the Canary Islands. The most famous resorts are Corralejo in the north and Morro Jable in the south. In 2009 the island received the status of a UNESCO bio-reserve.
Fuerteventura is only 100 km from the African coast and therefore has striking similarities in landscape. Such as the houses in North African style equipped with flat roofs to collect the sporadic rainwater. Fuerteventura resembles its northern neighbour Lanzarote, but with a bit more colour in the landscape. Many visitors are particularly interested in the waves and the constant wind that blows here for windsurfing.
