Sotavento

Fuerteventura - Canary Island , Spain

Costa Calma has many activities to offer as it is orientated around tourism, from surf/kite/wind schools and diving centres to buggy rides. A recommended excursion is boat trip to Los Lobos Island. It's six kilometres squared 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. There’s a large car park and a plaque that explains what can be seen from the railings. 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 and you can even go on a guided tour with a group. In addition to the fine dining, cultural tourism, wellness and sports you should visit Jandía Beach in Esquinzo village. It’s an extensive beach with a special turquoise colour and small sandy islands around it. The Sacred Mountain, north of Tindaya village is also worth visiting. It 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, 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.
