Fuerteventura’s busiest holiday resort has been built up around the town of Caleta de Fuste, also known as Castillo, about six miles (10km) south of the island’s airport.
The resort’s horseshoe-shaped gently sloping beach is man-made and covered with imported golden sand. The resort is steadily growing in facilities and popularity, the latest addition being a golf course.
The town consists of a long main street lined with low-rise buildings containing many restaurants and bars. Nightlife is bustling and there are various watersports on offer, boat trips and undersea excursions on a submarine.
Accommodation is predominantly in apartment blocks. Caleta de Fuste’s focal location makes it a good base from which to explore the rest of the island, although there is limited public transport and hiring a car is vital for most excursions.
