If you're after a laid-back beach break where the focus is placed firmly on rest, relaxation and fun in the sun, a Fuerteventura holiday could be right up your street.
That's what it's all about on this popular Canary Island. As one of a sun-baked archipelago located just off the west coast of Africa, Fuerteventura enjoys plenty of sunshine all year round. During the summer months, the temperatures really soar - peaking regularly in the high 30s - so you can expect long, hot days on the beach and plenty of cooling-off time in the sparkling waters of the Atlantic. During winter, this lovely island is pleasantly warm and you can still expect your fair share of t-shirt days, even in December or January.
Fuerteventura is a volcanic island, but unlike some of its neighbours - particularly Lanzarote and Tenerife - it doesn't have the characteristically black sands that are typical of a volcanic island. Instead, a Fuerteventura holiday is a haven of plush golden grains, within which you can sink your toes and enjoy the sensation of walking across gently undulating, pillow-soft terrain. Stretch out on a towel in a quiet corner, or take cover under a parasol while you kick back with your favourite read and your holiday playlist.
And when you're ready for a bit of action, Fuerteventura's breezy coastline makes it a popular spot for watersports. Or if you prefer to stay on dry land, head inland to explore its volcanic, mountainous terrain and discover a completely different side to this sun-baked holiday island.
If you've got a Fuerteventura holiday on the cards, you'll find plenty of choice through tour operators like Thomas Cook. They offer holidays to this part of the world all year round, with a wide spectrum of accommodation and many special offers to help make things that little bit easier. So why not get online and book your spot in the Fuerteventura sunshine?
