Fuerteventura is one of the 7 islands of the archipelago; emerging from the Atlantic Ocean as if it were a desert surrounded by huge sand dunes formed by the winds from the Sahara sand forming fantastic waves of sand. Known for its turquoise blue Waters, and its splendid white sandy beaches that contrast with the volcanic landscape among its many attractions including the Island of Lobos, the Natural Park of Jandia, Betancuria (Historical villa), the Tindaya Mountain and the windmills.
Located just 97 km from the north-western coast of Africa, the Island of Fuerteventura has 13 protected natural areas, which enhances its exoticism with palm trees and tropical vegetation and the much appreciated Aloe Vera plants. Its miles and miles of sandy beaches and golden sand dunes, make life on the island a real privilege.
