Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is different from all the other islands in the Canaries. Being the closest to Africa, there's a definite taste of the Sahara about it. The countryside is lonely but warm, bleak but friendly and, in its own way, beautiful. Beaches are what Fuerteventura is all about; mile upon mile of untouched golden sand, great billowing white sand dunes, foaming surf, and quiet turquoise coves.

Even though the landscape changes little, it's pleasant to tour Fuerteventura by car, since there's little traffic. But walking in Fuerteventura is also extremely enjoyable; there are walks to suit all appetites - rambles across the hills, fairly easy mountain ascents, a seaside hike and, for explorers, rocky barrancos with hidden streams and palm groves.

This pocket-sized guide describes car tours, picnic places and walks throughout Fuerteventura. There is a fold-out touring map for motorists, which also highlights the various walking areas. For those without a car, there are timetables for local transport.

The neighbouring island of Lanzarote is just 15 minutes away by fast ferry, so the book also describes a day out on that island, with a car tour and four walks.
