When: The island is obviously busier in the UK summer season, despite good weather all year. So, if you’ve had enough of the human race, go in January and enjoy some alone time.
Where: Costa Caleta - combine some history, with a great beach and add a few great bars in there for good measure – happy? Of course you are.
Why: If you’re single and looking to mingle, maybe go to some of the islands that have a tad more evening action. Gran Canaria and Tenerife are much better if you’re looking to go on the pull. If you just want to chill out – this is the island for you.
When: The Windsurfing Championships are held in the last week in July, so go then and join in the party.
Where: Corralejo is where the action is at on the island. With lively(ish) bars and a mountain jeep safari trip close by, there’s plenty going on.
Why: If you’re a group of budding windsurfers looking to work on your moves, then you won’t get better than Fuerteventura. If you’d rather have a party holiday, we would advise that you maybe give Fuerteventura a miss and head to Playa De Las Americas in Tenerife...it’s just more happening for the party animals.
When: Go out of the summer season so you can avoid the kids and enjoy the island when it’s much quieter. The weather is great all year, so why go when the families start trekking over?
Where: Costa Calma, even the name sounds relaxing doesn’t it? Enjoy the white sandy beaches on the east coast of the island. There are also some pretty sweet views of the volcanoes too.
Why: This island will give you all the romantic privacy you and your partner need to enjoy some quality alone time together...wink, wink.
When: Head in the summer months (May to September) when all the activities are open. Think of the tears if you arrive in March and the water park is shut?
Where: Corralejo is full of great activities, which the kids can do in the evenings as well. They will use up all your change in the amusement arcades, so it’s probably a good idea to visit the grandparents to collect some pocket money before you go.
Why: The kids will love playing in the warm waters and not only that, the island is home to the Oasis Zoo and the Baku Water Park. For those a tad older, there are also some great cycle routes and crazy golf courses.
