The island of Fuerteventura is an idyllic setting that is part of the collection of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The island enjoys year round sun shine and warm weather, meaning that it is a popular tourist destination no matter what time of year it is. Whether you are after some winter sun shine or a summer holiday, Fuerteventura is a great place to travel to, especially if you have children.

The area of Corralejo
is one of the most popular spots for tourists on the entire island. It has the
largest collection of top rated hotels as well as plenty of resorts, and is
right by the best beach on the island. With the seemingly endless stretch of
golden dunes, your kids will love playing around on the banks or splashing
about in the sea.The kids will also love sliding and rolling down the dunes, while
there is also segments of black beaches where your kids will love to play
around in the mud like sand.
If you feel like doing something different
from spending the day on the beach, then head over to the Oasis Park in La
Lajita. While you’re in the park there are four daily shows that are worth your
time going to - the parrots, reptiles, sea lions and birds of prey. Your
children will love watching the handlers performing with their animals,
especially during the feeding times.
There is also an African reserve in the
park where you will get the opportunity to see some camels, prairie dogs,
flamingos, giraffes, hippos, chimpanzees and emus. The facilities on site are
good with a restaurant so you won’t have hungry children, a farm for the
