Beaches in or near Puerto del Rosario are the Playa Chica immediately before the city, Playa Blanca between the city and the airport, Playa de Matorral immediately south of the airport and the Playa de Layas and Playa de Barlovento at Puerto Lajas north of the city.

Road traffic in Fuerteventura

Port of Puerto del Rosario at sunset

To get to the really beautiful places and beaches of the island, it is advisable to take a rental car. The roads on Fuerteventura were completely renewed a few years ago and are therefore very well passable. However, some highlights of the island can only be reached via sometimes bumpy and adventurous roads. The car rental companies on the island forbid it, however (probably from experience) to visit these places with normal cars. If you want to reach everything on the island, you have to rent an SUV

When is the best time of year to travel to Puerto del Rosario?

On an island like Fuerteventura, there is basically no best season. Each season here has its own charm and advantages or disadvantages. In summer, for example, you can relax wonderfully by the sea and spend a week at a stretch just lying on the beach, but that's the high season and that means it's incredibly busy. In winter, on the other hand, you probably won't be able to swim much in the sea, but the temperatures are perfect for exploring the whole island and your cities. We've put together a climate table for you so you can use that to expand your pros and cons list.

Port in Puerto del Rosario

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, northwest off Africa's coast. Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2009, Fuerteventura is blessed with the most beautiful beaches in the archipelago, a ruggedly beautiful landscape and over 3.000 hours of sunshine. It has long been a top destination for visitors interested in the island's cultural heritage and admiring the large number of centuries-old mansions and beautiful churches. Popular with tourists are the wide sandy beaches along the east coast. The constant winds make the beaches of the island interesting for water sports enthusiasts, wave riders on the west coast, wind surfers in the north near Corralejo or on the east coast (especially on the long stretch of beach between the Costa Calma and Jandía). Here, especially in recent years, kitesurfing has also established itself. The west of the island consists to a large extent of steep coast with life-threatening offshore currents. In Fuerteventura's mountainous landscape, but also on the slopes sloping down to the beaches of the east coast, one can encounter the cute atlas squirrels, which move nimbly through the rocks and are accustomed to humans from case to case. The first animals were introduced from North Africa in 1965, they multiplied rapidly and today sometimes cause serious damage to vegetation.
