Why You'll love Wind Surfing in Spain !

  • Year around strong wind destination with choice of 3 world class windsurf centres
  • A short haul flight from the UK and Europe
  • Fuerteventura offers a variety of conditions depending on the time of year and location; from super flat shallow lagoons to full on wave sailing spots

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, although one of the least developed. The Island has some stunning topography including vast sand dunes, huge golden beaches and breathtaking volcanic scenery in the interior. Broadly speaking most of the best beaches are along the East coast, the rugged West coast is more rocky and open to the swell of the Atlantic (great for surfing). The North is where you will find the main tourist resort of Corralejo, in the South East you will find some quieter beach resorts (including the windsurf resorts of Costa Calma and Sotavento). Corralejo, being the main tourist hub of the island, has a lot of amenities in the way of restaurants, bars and shopping. In some areas in central Corralejo it can be a little '18-30', but these areas are easily avoided. 

 

You arrive at the airport in Puerto Rosario and head North to Corralejo (25 minutes), by pre arranged private transfer, or car hire. Generally it is a good idea to have car hire although this is not necessary. Fuerteventura and the Canaries are are great year around windsurf holiday destination within easy reach of the UK (around 3.5 hours flight), and a lot of other European departure points. This is one of the most wind reliable short-haul windsurf holiday destinations from March to September, but it can also be great in the winter months, just not quite as 'guaranteed' wind. 

A windsurf holiday to Corralejo in Fuerteventura is suitable for all levels and holiday types, including families, singles and couples, of all windsurf abilities. There is a special windsurf lagoon for beginners, a very long and stunning windsurf beach for improvers, plus some small and easy waves if you want it. This really is a great windsurf holiday location to satisfy a wide range of abilities.

As with all of our location we are meticulous about which accommodation we work with, and will only suggest properties that we have personally inspected and know to be good. In Corralejo we have a superb collection of properties to include a stunning deluxe beach resort, spacious families villas and a 'cool' boutique hotel in the centre of town. A Planet windsurf holiday expert can guide you to the best property for your budget and specific requirements should you decide to contact us.

Compared to the rest of the Costa Brava, the huge, fine sandy bay of Roses is very spacious, and by far the windiest spot on the Catalan coast. Located in the south of the bay of Roses, not far from the Club Mistral center, is the medieval village of Sant Marti d’Empuries with its’ famous archeological sites. From there you can reach the small village L’Escala in the southern end of the bay via a beautiful path alongside the beach. The old town, a former fishing village, offers fabulous tapas bars, restaurants, discos and nice, small boutiques.

The bay of Roses has long been well-known amongst windsurfers, and now also amongst kiters. The whole region is a very interesting destination, with numerous attractions and cultural sites. Due to its’ vicintiy to the Pyrenees, rafting and canyoning trips can be offered. The message is clear: a thrilling and yet safe spot where everybody can make the most of their time and money, no matter if they are wave freaks, freestylers, freeriders, kiters or kids.

Lanzarote is situated just 120km off the seacoast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. Formed as a result of volcanic activity about 15 million years ago, it is 70km long and 20km wide with around 300 volcanoes! In 1992 it was declared as part of the World Biosphere Reserve and therefore under the protection of UNESCO. The island has a mild and sunny climate all year round with a truly unique light and spectrum of colours.

There's huge scenic diversity here, on one hand strange rock formations and an almost lunar volcanic landscape - on the other fantastic wide golden or black sandy beaches pounded by perfect waves - real contrast and diversity everywhere you go. You can't imagine that anything could grow here, but fine volcanic stones absorb moisture from the atmosphere and provide suitable conditions for various crops, and grape vines, which produce a very fine white wine!

Costa Teguise has a huge variation in both the quality and type of food available and all tastes are catered for. The standard of accommodation is extremely high and ranges from 4 and 5 star hotels to simple self-catering accommodation. Everything is within easy reach, and all you need is in walking distance. However, we really do recommend hiring a car to take in some of the breathtaking eco-tourist attractions.
