Fuerteventura Golf Holidays

About 15 miles wide and 50 miles long, It is part of the province of Las Palmas. It is divided into six municipalities, each with their own main town:   Fuerteventura is known as the island of the eternal Spring and is one of the very few “countries” wholly declared as a UNESCO site.

Located just 100 kilometres off the coast of North Africa, it is the second biggest of the islands, after Tenerife, and has the longest beaches in the archipelago. The island is a destination for sun, beach and watersports enthusiasts. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and the winter, temperatures average a high of 22 °C (72 °F) and a low of around 15 °C (59 °F) in the winter months, whereas during the summer a mean high of 35 °C (95 °F) and a low of 20 °C (68 °F) can be expected. Precipitation is about 147 mm per year, most of which falls in autumn and winter. October is the month with highest rainfall.  There are no fewer than 152 beaches along its coastline — 50 kilometres of fine, white sand and 25 kilometres of black volcanic shingle.

Fuerteventura Golf Breaks

The first settlers are believed to have arrived here from North Africa. They lived in caves and semi-subterranean dwellings, a few of which have been discovered and excavated revealing relics of early tools and pottery. In the 11th century BC, the Phoenician settlers arrived in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.  Several Spanish and Portuguese expeditions occurred in about 1340  and, in 1405, the French conqueror Jean de Béthencourt took the island and gave his name to the former capital, Betancuria, on the west coast (Puerto Rosario took over the mantle as island capital in 1835). The name of the island itself is believed to have come from Bethencourt's exclamation "Quelle forte aventure!" ("What a grand adventure").

In 1927, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote became part of the province of Gran Canaria.  Tourism arrived in the mid-1960s with the building of the present airport at El Mattoral and the first tourist hotels.

Fuerteventura Golf Holidays

Our Fuerteventura Golf holidays bring you to the highest point in Fuerteventura. This is Mount Jandía (807 m) in the southwestern part of the island. Geographical features include Istmo de la Pared which is 5 km wide and is the narrowest part of Fuerteventura. The island is divided into two parts, the northern portion which is Maxorata and the southwestern part called the Jandía peninsula. The island is the least settled in the Canary Islands.

The summer Trade Winds and winter swells of the Atlantic make this a year-round surfers' paradise. Sailors, scuba divers and big-game fishermen are all drawn to these clear blue Atlantic waters where whales, dolphins, marlin and turtles are all common sights. With many hills present throughout the Island, hikers are also attracted to this Island.
Much of the interior, with its large plains, lavascapes and volcanic mountains, consists of protected areas which can be best be explored in a 4x4 or (for the more daring) with a cross-country motorbike on an organised tour.
