Location information for Fuerteventura

Introduction

Fuerteventura is the second largest Canary Island (which belong to Spain). The name means 'powerful wind', and the island's climate is different from that on the other islands. There is often a chilly wind (Gota Fria), alternating with a hot wind from the Sahara (Calima). That wind makes the island a paradise for surfers. There are beautiful beaches, but the interior is rugged, barren and dry.

Population

The island has only 45,000 inhabitants, which makes it the most sparsely populated of the Canary Islands. More than half of the people live in the island's capital Puerto del Rosario (which, incidentally, is not particularly attractive) on the east coast.

Location

Fuerteventura is about 100 kilometres long and 5 - 30 kilometres wide. It is located at less than 100 kilometres from the coast of Morocco. The island is located to the east of Gran Canaria and to the south-west of Lanzarote. The main tourist locations are Corralejo in the north and Morro del Jable in the southern land tip Jandia. Straight to the north of Corralejo lies the small island of Los Lobos with a 127 metre high volcano. Central on the island lies the old capital Betancuria, the oldest city on the island with a beautiful cathedral, the Iglesia Santa Maria. The archaeological and ethnographic museum (Museu Arqueologico y Etnografico) is also well worth a visit.

Economy

Like the other Canary Islands, Fuerteventura also depends largely on tourism. In addition, livestock is an important pillar, which can clearly be seen on the island: there are goats everywhere that are bred for their meat and milk. Also, tomatoes and potatoes are grown. The port of Puerto del Sosario plays a (modest) role in the local economy.

Airports

The airport of Fuerteventura is located at only five kilometers to the south of the capital Puerto del Rosario, near the tourist centre of Caleta de Fuste. The airport is situated on the main road FV-1. On a column near the taxi stand there are fixed rates for various destinations on the island. There are shuttle buses to the capital, Caleta de Fuste and Morro del Jable.
It is likely that within a few years a second airport will be opened in the south of the island.

Public transport

Although public transport by bus has improved in recent years, it is still fairly limited. There are bus connections between the most important destinations and the capital, but they do not always follow the shortest route. It is nice if you want to sea the island in a relaxed way. You cannot always count on the official departure and arrival times. Ask the local population for the timetable of the buses.
There are plenty of taxis. It is a fairly cheap way to travel.

Traffic and Parking

The main road that runs from north to south via the capital is a good and fairly broad road. Some other main roads are good as well, but otherwise the roads on the island are paved with gravel or sand. The smaller roads go through the mountains, which means there are lots of curves. If you want to turn left on the main roads, you often need to position your car to the right and then cross the road. This way the traffic behind you can keep moving.

The road network is good. There are paved main roads and various categories of sandy roads. There is no motorway, but the main road connecting the north of the island to the south is a good road with one lane in each direction. You often drive in mountainous terrain with lots of curves, but the roads are wide enough for cars to pass each other. On smaller roads the horn is a handy tool to warn people coming from the other direction.

Parking is virtually nowhere a problem. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to park at curbs with a yellow or white line. A blue line means that you have to pay to park.

Hotels

Fuerteventura has a good supply of hotels and holiday cottages, but not for every budget. There are hardly any budget accommodations. There are no campsites, although in some places you are allowed to pitch your tent (ask on site!). Tourism on the island is not nearly as well developed as it is on, for instance, Gran Canaria. Holiday cottages are sometimes located in remote locations (but they are very beautiful!), so a rental car is a must. During peak season you have to book in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
