Flag Beach - Fuerteventura - Canary Islands , Spain
To stay overnight, the Cotillo village has a very nice atmosphere and is only a short car journey away, in the northwest of the island. You could also stay in other smaller, quieter villages like Villaverde and if you don’t have a car, Corralejo village is the best option as it’s the closest. A recommended excursion is boat trip to Los Lobos Island which is six square kilometres in size and sits between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. It is a Biosphere Reserve natural park with numerous endemic species and a valuable habitat with amazing views.
The Risco de las Peñas viewpoint at 426 metres high provides brilliant views of the islands. The varied landscape on the route to Bentacuria is spectacular. Many feed the squirrels and crows there. There’s a large car park and a didactic panel that explains the things that can be seen from the balustrade. Another way to explore the island's lunar landscape is by mountain bike or quad. You’ll find numerous shops in the village that rent them or you could go on an organised group tour with a guide. There are some other things, in addition to the fine dining, cultural tourism, wellness and sports that you mustn't miss. One is Jandía Beach in Esquinzo village. It’s an extensive beach which has a special turquoise colour and small sandy islands around it. The Sacred Mountain, north of Tindaya village was once a sacred place for the old settlers and radiates magic and peacefulness. There is a lovely trekking route from the village to the mountain. Lastly, the Cueva Volcánica which is north of Llano Villaverde, is a 648 metre long volcanic pipe with a subterranean gallery where the secrets about the formation of Fuerteventura and the home of the only white arachnid in existence emerge.
