Along Fuertevetura's coastline there are countless surf spots perfect for beginner surfers through to experts. As the island isn't very large, even if one surf break isn't getting the right swell, within minutes you can drive to another that is going off. After all, you can drive the length of the island in about 2 hours, and even on a rare flat day Fuerteventura usually has enough wind to give you the chance to try out wind or kite surfing.

Most surfers like to stay in the north of the island, in the town of Corralejo. Full of great bars, restaurants and night life, the town also boasts a great range of affordable accommodation close to lots of surf spots. Fuerteventura is part of the Spanish Canary Islands, so of course the island follows the Spanish way off life... Corralejo will have you relaxing over a late brunch, strolling along the main high street for beautiful locally made items, and then taking in a siesta before enjoying a sunset surf.
So whether you have a week, 10 days or a brilliant 2 weeks planned off work, make the most of the time to change things up, get yourself surfing in warm water and hot sunny weather, and really start your new year in the best possible way.
