Golfing in Fuerteventura
With three thousand hours of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast and with top class hotels situated beside 2 excellent golf courses it is a perfect location for a relaxing sunshine golf holiday.
The weather conditions of Fuerteventura are very similar to Florida and Mexico which are on the same latitude, which make this the ideal golfing holiday location.
There is nowhere else in the Canaries with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches (more than one hundred and fifty). Even though most of the land consists of stone and rock, these are some of the most impressive beaches in the whole of Europe. Approx 98km long and 30km across at the widest point.
In the history of time Fuerteventura is generally regarded as the oldest of all the Canaries and its strange contours come from various volcanic episodes. The last eruption occurred around 7,000 years ago so you're pretty safe. Should you wish to see some volcanic activity take a trip to the neighboring island of Lanzarote, it's well worth it.
Water sports are very popular in Fuerteventura. Every year hundreds of surfers and windsurfersand divers descend on Fuerteventura and during July the island is host to the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south.
There are many new attractions inviting tourists to discover different aspects of the Island's landscape and culture such as the Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography and Tefia Craft Village to name but a few.
With miles and miles of broad sandy beaches and golden sand dunes and two excellent golf courses, Fuerteventura is a great choice for your next golf break.
