Caleta de Fuste, Fuerteventura

| December 17, 2011

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.
