What is there to see and do around Caleta de Fuste?

Friday, 30 December 2011 10:00 AM

Fuerteventura in Spain is one of the country's premier holiday destinations - and with good reason. As well as the warm golden sunshine, there is plenty to see and do here, particularly if you book villas in Caleta de Fuste for rent for your stay.

As one of the largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is an absolute haven for holidaymakers, offering the chance to spend the day on gorgeous beaches and the evenings in lively bars and nightclubs.

Caleta de Fuste is the largest community in the municipality of Antigua, Las Palmas, on the island. However, in addition to boasting many of the attractions the Canary Islands are known for, it also offers you the chance to have a relaxed and laidback break where you have ample opportunity to get some peace and quiet.

Around the resort lie quiet and welcoming Spanish villages, which you may wish to visit from your Fuerteventura villa for rent.

One particular nearby attraction is Betancuria, which was once the island's capital. The city is the ideal place to spend a day during your stay in holiday homes. Here, you can learn more about the island's rich history, as well as top up your tan as you stroll in the sun.

You are certain to find it a beautiful place thanks to its valley setting, but its location once had a more practical purpose - it was believed that it would be safe from pirates, although some attacks did still occur.

Casa Museo Arquebiologico is an interesting place to visit if you wish to find out more about the city's history and browse some of the archaeological finds that have been uncovered here.

The beautiful Santa Maria church is another stop you could head to. The building you will see before you was completed in the late 17th century, although there was a place of worship on this site for longer, but it was destroyed in a pirate attack.

Another great spot to spend the day is at the beach. There are some stunning sands to be found in these parts, where you are certain to enjoy doing nothing more than soaking up the sun and completely relaxing.

However, you may wish to take the odd break from tanning to go for a stroll down the shore. Dolphins and turtles thrive in the local waters and you may be lucky enough to catch sight of one of these creatures while you're here.

Indeed, you could find out more about what lives in the sea around the island by booking a place on a catamaran cruise, or taking a trip in a glass bottomed boat or even onboard a submarine.

One option if you are in the mood for being a little more active is golf. Fans of the sport find that Spain is proving an increasingly popular location to head to and indulge in their favourite pastime.

This is because in addition to the blue skies and sunshine, there are also numerous high-quality courses to choose from, and Caleta de Fuste is no exception.

On the outskirts of the municipality you will find two particularly good golf courses - indeed, they have world-class championship reputations. As a result, more golfers are choosing to rent a villa out here.

With so much to see and do in Caleta de Fuste, why not start planning your holiday today?
