If you can bear to tear yourself from the white-sanded beach, you’ll find that the resort offers plenty to see and do. The harbour offers sailing trips and water sports, and is a great place to learn to windsurf and scuba dive. Keen golfers can test their skills at the 18-hole Fuerteventura Golf Club, with courses to suit nervous newbies and seasoned pros. If you’re away with kids, plan a day trip to swim with sea-lions in the island’s fantastic zoo, or cool off on a hot day with a splash around at Acua Water Park, in nearby Corralejo.
The jewel in Caleta de Fuste’s crown is its beach. A beautiful horseshoe-shaped bay, it has imported sand that is impossibly white and soft, providing the perfect conditions for some serious sunbathing. It’s backed by a colourful promenade, where you can take a gentle stroll, enjoy a leisurely drink, and watch the sun set over the sea. The shoreline slopes gently into the sea and there are regular lifeguard patrols, making it safe for younger visitors who want to splash about. If you want to add a shot of adrenaline to your holiday, there are several good places along the seafront where you can hire water sports equipment, including an excellent local dive centre and windsurfing school.
The harbour provides plenty of opportunities for sailing and water sports. Favourite day trips include whale-watching cruises, fishing, or even a diving excursion.
