Caleta de Fuste In Fuerteventura

Aug 8, 2008
Caleta de Fuste is many things to many people; me, it's a place I call home, plus I work there too. To others it's somewhere to go on holiday and take the kids knowing its safe, its clean and its fun.

But Caleta de Fuste is more than that.

The town itself has been around for about 15 years, before that it was simply an attractive horseshoe beach with a turret on it, clear blue waters, golden sands stretching for miles, and nothing else literally.

It lies to the south of the airport on the east side of the island, that's about sixty miles from Africa. Hence the heat, and year round excellent climate. The heat isn't quite the same as the Sahara as the island is cooled by the winds coming down from Europe, which makes its more bearable, but the heat does have it moments, typically in August and September.

Anyway, now it's a vibrant and growing town filled with bars and restaurants and even a club or two. But more than that; its hot (pretty much always), its small, and its very family orientated.
Most days you will see pushchairs with families behind them, young couples strolling, and the older dads in the bars trying to place a bet (which can be difficult here), and all because this town is not really anything like Tenerife.

We see a lot of tourism from people wanting to stay in not Tenerife, and the whole Island of Fuerteventura could have a tagline after it; Fuerteventura: Not Tenerife, and it would sell.
So many people visit us and say that last year they stayed at such and such in Tenerife, and it was all blah blah.

Whatever, I am not here to knock Tenerife or Gran Canaria, only to say that Fuerteventura, and in particular, Caleta de Fuste, is a lot further from either island than the mere miles might suggest.
It might be rocky, it might be strange looking (strangely beautiful someone once said), it might even be a little quiet. But one thing is for sure, it's definitely home for a long time to come.

Caleta de Fuste is a four hour flight from the UK, and two from Madrid (the closest International Hub).

Anyway, I just wanted to say that, and also that I am off to the beach now. Ha! I may have a beer or two (very cheap), and an ice-cream, or maybe just people watch.

My life eh? It's terrible?
