Information about Fuerteventura
Surf Fuerteventura - Quick Facts
LOCATION: Europe - Canary Islands
Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and is situated only 90km from the African Coast. It has a desert like scenery with some of the best surf in the chain of islands. A warm climate which is cooled by Atlantic breezes benefits the surfer greatly in the morning and late afternoon when the offshore conditions generate world class surf. Fuerteventura is considered one of the best places in Europe for heavy, uncrowded waves.
Its climate, and convenient 4.5 hour flight from the UK, makes it a popular winter destination for UK surfers and holidaymakers alike.
