Kilometers of perfect crowdless sandy beaches such as Caleta de Fuste, Sotavento, Corralejo, the island of Lobos await you. But that’s not all! You will also find black sand beaches of volcanic origin such as Ayuj, La Lajita, Tarajalejo, small sandy coves like El Cotillo, which always come in handy as a shelter from the wind, cliffs with fantastic views on the wild Atlantic ocean and a calm horizon. With a little research you can experience it all, because the landscape can change drastically after only a few kilometers and allow you a real little adventure in discovering the island.

2. Almost 365 sunny days and pleasant climate
Locals like to say that there is no more than 15 days of rain on the islands throughout the year, and winter temperatures rarely fall below 20°C during the day. Although Fuerteventura is best visited from May to November, the winter months are only slightly behind. The water is a bit cooler then, but when you sunbathe on the beautiful beaches, a refreshing ocean bath is equally tempting and refreshing.
TIP: Fuerteventura has a little more wind than we are used to, it also depends on individual places, the day and time of year. The summer months are windier, which is why windsurfers and kiters love it so much. However, if you find shelter and warm up well, no wind will disturb you even in the middle of winter.

3. Cheap airline tickets and accommodation prices
A number of low-cost airlines (Ryanair, easyJet, Wizz Air) currently offer flights from Milan Malpensa and Bergamo airports to Fuerteventura. Return airline tickets can be purchased for as little as 91 €. If you don’t have a specific date, the price shouldn’t be a problem, but if you’re planning to go for a spring or summer vacation with relatively defined dates, we advise you to book as soon as possible. GoOpti can take you to Bergamo airport starting from 28 €.
Accommodation prices have fallen by an average of 30%. Now for a very good price you can get an apartment, a house with a pool or a hotel room, so you will quickly justify the costs of possible testing.
TIP: Many search engines and booking sites store your previous search history, so prices might change based on what you have already browsed. To avoid this and ensure you are getting the best deal possible, make sure to turn your internet browser incognito before booking your flight.

The island is great for beginners, but also for more experienced lovers of these sports. Corralejo, El Cotillo and Costa Calma are the main places for windsurfing and kiting.
