Sotavento Beach

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

During our holiday on Fuerteventura the isle really got me fascinating. Often people think that to see some beautiful and nice beaches of white sand and to practice watersports you have to go very far.

In my opinion this is wrong, because on Fuerteventura, on the canary archipelago you find many beaches, which look like in the Caribbean.

We enjoyed at the beaches not only by sunbathing and doing watersports, we had very nice moments strolling along the romantic beaches. My favorite beach on the isle of Fuerteventura with difference is the beach of Sotavento in the South, between Costa Calma and Morro Jable.

Windmill Tiscamanita

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

In a tiny, introspective village on Fuerteventura you can find a real worth seeing windmill. If you drive from Tuineje in direction to Antigua you come to a village called Tiscamanita. You really shall stop in Tiscamanita and visit the windmill.

A museum round the windmill has been created to tell to the visitors the story about the windmills and the tradition of Fuerteventura. The information about windmills is very interesting, but only available in Spanish.

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Who visited Fuerteventura for a holiday maybe saw some mysterious stone buildings in the form of a U on the beaches. Those stone buildings are found over all in the area around Jandia and Costa Calma, where people love to enjoy the sun at the beaches and also on some other beaches on Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

The locals call those stone buildings hoyos, what means something like hole or tumb. For tourists with fantasy those stone buildings can be like a hiding place or a fortress. Principally the hoyos protect the visitors on the beach from the wind and as a second effect they protect them as well from the vies of curious visitors. Behind the hoyos you Read the rest
