When you think of your next holiday, you’re likely to imagine long sunny days full of beach slumbering. Indeed, one of the most popular holiday activities is rest and relaxation. You’ve waited all year and pushed through many long days of work, and when your flight takes off for your annual trip, you’ll be ready to stretch out on the sand with a good book. But if you want to experience a holiday that you’ll remember forever, there will be more to it than days full of lounging. By taking advantage of some of the activities unique to your destination, you will enjoy experiences unlike anything you’ll find back at home. Water sports in Fuerteventura are part of what make the island famous, and there are options for travelers of all ages and energy levels.

Fuerteventura is lined with a long sandy coastline, and as you navigate around the beaches, you’ll find ample chances for fun in the water every step of the way. One of the favorites of the natives is ocean diving, and because of the temperate climate the water remains relatively warm throughout the year. This helps to nurture a host of aquatic life that makes for rewarding scuba and snorkel ventures. Another component of the weather is the constant windiness, and this makes Fuerteventura a perfect spot for sailing. You can rent small sailboats at most harbor towns and resorts or, if you’re a novice sailor, you can enjoy the sport as a passenger on a sailing charter boat with seasoned guides.

Additionally, a discussion about water sports in Fuerteventura would be incomplete without mention of surfing, windsurfing, and kite surfing. All along the coastline, you will find centers that offer lessons in technique and safety for each sport. If you’re no stranger to them, you can rent a board by the hour, day, or week and advantage of the scenic coast and the Atlantic Ocean that awaits able bodies and adventurous spirits.
