If there is one thing you can say about this island, it the beautiful sandy beaches.
I think they are the best beaches in the Canaries.
Beautiful white sand that has blown in from the Sahara. None of your usual imported sand from, erm, the Sahara, like on the other islands that make up the Canaries.
We are out there again on the 8th of January 03, and are meeting up with another couple that live in Sussex, and their two children. My two girls got on well with their two boys this year in Lanzarote where we met, and they also run their own landscaping business like I do in Cheshire, so we have plenty to laugh about when we meet. Also I will make sure to get lots of really good pictures this time for these pages, so if there is anything that your really want to see, let me know.
We are staying in Caleta De Fuste this time. We stayed in Corralejo on our last visit, for our honeymoon, and made sure to get out and about by hiring a nice little convertible. That’s the picture above, just before a little girl opened up her passenger door on a car parked along the side of the road.
There was a car coming the other way towards us, and the road was very narrow, so the only options I had were to either go head on with the car coming towards us, or rip the girls car door off. Off came the door. Nobody was hurt thankfully.
We stayed at the Duna Park in Corralejo, and we had a great time. Really close to town, but very quiet, and not packed out.
- Pros:Best sandy beaches in the Canaries.
- Cons:Pretty windy, but only on, erm, windy days, of course. Which is most days.
- In a nutshell:Great beaches, be prepared to travel, and be carefull on the roads.
You really wouldn’t believe that this was in the middle of the Holiday season. I love a walk on the beach, especially... more travel advice
At the bottom end of the Island is Jandia, it has some absolutely fantastic beaches. The best beaches are just before... more travel advice

- Not much in the way of anything really.
- Children are first.
- The flags are out.
