Driving on the island of Fuerteventura is straightforward. Road surfaces are generally very good and destinations are clearly signposted. Spanish regulations state that children under 12 must not ride in the front seats of vehicles.
Parking, both free and paid, is plentiful across the island, especially in the remoter and quieter areas. The main towns such as Puerto del Rosario and Corralejo have clearly marked public car parks but these can get busy at peak times.
Your car rental in Fuerteventura gives you the flexibility to set your own itinerary and really get to know this charming Canary Island. The island was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 2009 and your journey from one end to the other takes you through beautiful natural parks and along stunning coastlines. The island's capital, Puerto del Rosario is a relatively new town but does have a bustling port and pleasant promenade to explore while its centre is full of quirky street art. If this has whetted your artistic appetite, visit the open-air sculpture park where you can admire hundreds of works by local artists. Corralejo sitting on the Northern tip of the island gives you a greater sense of history, with narrow cobbled streets and fishermen's cottages. Miles of sand dunes protect its broad sandy beaches. Other historic and picturesque towns to visit are Antigua in the centre of the island and Betancuria, Fuerteventura's original capital. It is also located in the centre and now enclosed within a rural park.
As the landscape of Fuerteventura is mainly flat and arid the volcanic mountain of Tindaya in the North stands out clearly from many miles around. This mountain has a unique history as a sacred destination with the original inhabitants of Fuerteventura considering it to have magical properties. Much of this belief only came to light in the 1970s when hundreds of engravings in the shape of feet were discovered around the mountain's base. Follow the marked footpath that takes you up the South West crest of Tindaya to really appreciate its saffron colours and the panoramic views from the top. The little village at the base is the perfect spot to stop for some lunch and souvenir shopping.
The biggest attraction for visitors to Fuerteventura has to be its miles of sandy beaches. The island boasts more than 150, many of which are wonderfully isolated and unspoilt. Playa Grande, near Correlajo, has over 8 miles of family-friendly stretches with plenty of watersports to enjoy and regular boat trips to the small, tropical Isla de Lobos which lies a few miles out to sea.
For many centuries salt provided a livelihood for the islanders, allowing food to be preserved before Spanish ships set off for the New World. Discover this history at the Salt Museum near Caleta de Fuste. Browse the fascinating exhibits before taking a tour of the actual sea salt mines.
The whole family will enjoy a visit to the Antigua Windmill Craft Centre. Here you can explore a windmill and discover the traditional arts and crafts of Fuerteventura as well as going back in time with its archaeological and folk history displays. The site also has a large cactus garden and the Majorero Cheese Museum. This tasty goat's milk cheese is a typical product of the island and makes an ideal gift.
Although Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Isles it has a relatively small population. The pleasant year-round climate has seen tourism become its most important economic sector, a large proportion of which is dedicated to watersports. Historically fishing, salt mining and the production of artisan cheeses were also vital. The island has three auditoriums. The largest is the Isle of Fuerteventura Auditorium which along with the Gran Tarajal and Corralejo Auditoriums is used for artistic performances, conferences and exhibitions.
