Day 2 - Morro Jable & Parque Natural Jandia

Today is the day to rent a car and explore the island! Woohoo! If you're based in the north of Corralejo, then plan to drive around 2 hours to the southern point of the island! We paid about 16 EUR for the whole day and got a SEAT IBIZA via Hertz, which was totally fine.

 

Morro Jable is definitely a town where you should stop on the way to the Parque Natural Jandia. Go for a stroll along the coast, observe the picturesque lighthouse and have a coffee in one of the cafes!

Although the drive through the Parque Natural Jandia takes quite some time, don't give up and drive all the way to the stunning Cofete beach! There will be a must-see viewpoint just a few km before reaching the spot. The wind there could be really strong though, so watch out your stuff :=) ...however the goats were not bothered by it!

Day 3 - Day 5 : Surfing & Yoga

Fuerteventura with its landscape and water paradise is an island full of adventures. Beside cycling, hiking, jet-ski, kitesurfing, quad biking, it makes it a perfect spot for SURFING! In our opinion, go and visit Fuerteventura mainly for the reason of doing a sport activity on the island! Make sure to check Planet Surf Camp Fuerteventura for a week or two of surfing. We did it and could recommend it to everyone! It's never too late to start with a new sport! Read about our experience here.

Day 7 - Flying Home

Oh oh, the last day is here! Make sure to catch at least one sunrise while vacationing on the island. Why not waking up early and immersing yourself in the beautiful and romantic moment before going to the airport.

When to Go

Fuerteventura is just perfect all year-around. We travelled there in June, which we experienced as a pleasant period. The water was a bit cold (about 20°C) but still okay to go swimming. The water has the highest temperature in September and October - these are also the warmest months (27°C) on the island. Between December and March there are occasionally short rain showers.
