Fuerteventura… so well-known Canary Island. In order to understand the scale of the elements that await you there, I want to show some photos.
You can get to Fuerteventura, either from the Lanzarote island by ferry, or fly directly to the airport. The airport is located approximately in the middle of the island, so the main populated cities will be an hour away by car.
The closest is the capital Puerto del Rosario (I do not recommend considering it for recreation, it is an ordinary working city, with a population of 1 million people.) and the town Caleta de Fuste.
Fuerteventura is one of the most famous spots for surfers, unreal beauty, breathtaking. Crazy tides and flows, probably the most ideal place for surfers, although there are days when kiting goes on too.
The island has a specific climate, despite the fact that the island is located close to Africa, it is the windiest island, so you need to get used to the wind.
