Hire a car and explore the island

There will be lots of things to see and do on your holiday in Fuerteventura, so why not hire a car for a great way to experience the best of the island. Fuerteventura is only 60 miles long and a maximum of 18 miles wide, so it’s easy to visit anywhere on the island within a single day.

The sleepy town of El Cotillo is pristine and peaceful and the town’s lagoons are perfect for a paddle in the gentle waves. Las Playitas is the most beautiful town on the coast. This former fishing village still retains most of its old world charm but you’ll also find a fantastic golf course and a 21 kilometre long running track which plays host to an annual triathlon.

The town of Betancuria is a haven of whitewashed houses and manicured greens. This was once the capital of Fuerteventura and the people that live here are proud of their important heritage. Drive the winding roads through the volcanic landscape and stop off for that all important selfie moment. You’ll see craters, rivers and mountains along the way and get a true sense of this island’s personality.
