Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands although one of the least developed. You arrive at the airport in Puerto Rosario and head North to Corralejo (25 minutes). Generally it is a good idea to have car hire although this is not necessary. The Canaries offer excellent value for money and are easily reached, by various charter flights a week, with a short 3 hour flight.
