With mile upon mile of soft, white, sandy beaches washed by turquoise waters, holidays to Fuerteventura provide a beach-lover's paradise. And with the wide variety of cuisines, Fuerteventura is a great choice for your self-catering holiday.
With the flourishing presence of visitors to the island, restaurants increasingly offer an international dining experience with a variety of familiar home-from-home dishes like soups, steak and chips or omelettes. However, trying the local food on a self-catering holiday in Fuerteventura is simply a must. Tapas is a great way to try out a variety of local dishes. It is characterised by small portions of food often served as a side dish and in most cases, can be found on display in either chilled or heated cabinets on the bar.
Try the gofio, which is a type of bread made from flour, kneaded with water and olive oil, sometimes with a little crumbled goat’s cheese or honey added. Sancocho is another local dish you must try, which is a stew made with salted potatoes and vegetables.
