Sun, sand and sea are the main players representing Fuerteventura. Endless beaches in the south and white dunes in the north shaped by the gentle passat wind attract hordes of sun worshippers and water lovers. But the barrenness of the landscape, to a great extent devoid of people, is fascinating in itself, and its gently rounded summits, volcanic cones and black lava fields have also found their aficionados.
MARCO POLO Fuerteventura takes you round the second largest island in the Canaries which, with its small, ancient settlements, isn't going to appeal to those seeking a cultural holiday or who like wandering round towns. This practical guide book, small enough to slip into your pocket, shows the best places to find peace and quiet and relaxing sport on this scenically fascinating island. Or where you can simply listen to the waves breaking on the beach. The Insider Tips tell you where you can have great fun camel riding and take you to Mama Rumba in Puerto del Rosario which indulges in an outbreak of Latin fever every Saturday. The Low Budget tips in each chapter tell you how you can experience a great deal with very little money, enjoy something special and snap up some real bargains. The Trips & Tours take you through the land of the Majoreros to the north through lava rubble and dunes, to the sacred Tindaya Mountain, or through the mountains to the most important places in the Canary Islands as far as culture and history are concerned. In, under and on the water - Fuerteventura is an island for water sports fans.
Snorkelers, divers and above all surfers will have the time of their lives here. But in the Sport and activities chapter you'll also find numerous locations for those who'd rather be on terra firma, such as bikers and motor cyclists as well as horse riders. The Dos and Don'ts advise you know why you shouldn't bathe on the west coast, and should recognise the principle First come, first served. MARCO POLO Fuerteventura gives comprehensive coverage of the island's northern, central and southern regions. To help you find your way around there's a detailed road atlas, removable pull-out map and practical map inside the back cover, with a layout of the Canary Islands.
