Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Spanish Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, situated off the northwest coast of Africa.
Declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 2009, Fuerteventura is blessed with the archipelago’s most stunning beaches, a ruggedly beautiful landscape and over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year.
It has also long been admired as a top destination for visitors interested in cultural heritage thanks to its large number of centuries-old mansions and beautiful churches.
Fuerteventura has a large number of ports along its coast, making it an excellent departure point for the rest of the Canary Islands. Also, with the routes operated by a range of excellent ferry companies, there’s no shortage of sailing options.
Gran Canaria is the second most populous island in the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.
A ‘continent in miniature’, Gran Canaria is locally known. This is due to the huge variety of landscapes and micro-climates, with vast mountains, long beaches and green ravines all coming together on this 1,500 square-kilometre landmass.
A third of Gran Canaria is classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, but elsewhere, you will find a rich history in the cosmopolitan capital of Las Palmas, a charming hilltop village in Tejeda and a network of superb cycling routes winding through the valleys.
Travelling by ferry is a convenient way to explore the Canaries, and, given Gran Canaria’s central location, it’s within easy reach from nearly every other island. There are also some long-distance connections from mainland Spain which are operated by a couple of excellent ferry companies.
