Nature

There's plenty of wildlife to be seen in Fuerteventura along with the volcanic and desert landscapes, cliffs and beaches with crystal clear water.

Taking a walk away from the tourist crowds, hiring a bike or taking a trip to a quiet village or secluded area can be both relaxing and rewarding. There are numerous unusual plants, birds, and fish species as well as whales, dolphins and turtles.
