Situated on the East coast of Fuerteventura, the holiday resort of Caleta de Fuste has been developed with families and children in mind. A small but lively resort, Caleta de Fuste has lots to offer.
The man made, horse shoe shaped beach was created so young children can swim safely whilst mum and dad get some quality time on the beach. A sand school can be found where children (and even adults) can learn the art of sand sculpting. The adjacent harbour offers a range of water sports and boat trips.
Seal lions can also be seen swimming here and there is a floating souvenir shops where you can get a token or two to take home or even feed the local fish!
A short walk from the beach takes you into main Caleta town. A wide range of restaurants and bars can be found here offering a wide variety of cuisines. Bars tend to stay open until 1am and a few late night bars until 3 or 4am. If you fancy a dance then three or four nightclubs are situated around the resort staying open until 7 or 8am.
For young children there are lots to do. Mini golf course, archery, trampolining, play parks, bowling, cinema, tennis, badminton to name but a few. A go-karting track is in nearby Puerto del Rosario and a new Water Park in Corralejo. A zoo can also be found in the south of the island in Costa Calma.
If you are a keen golfer then you have two Golf Courses on the outskirts of the town. These are also opposite a large newly built indoor shopping centre which offers a hypermarket, clothing shops and a Burger King and McDonalds. A bowling alley can also be found in this shopping centre.
The majority of accommodation in El Castillo is self catering apartments and villas, however a few hotels can be found in and around the resort. Luxury golf villas are also available for long term and holiday lets and provide a great base for families.
The island boasts over one hundred and fifty beaches, many of which are off the beaten track, making Fuerteventura a beach lovers paradise! The annual wind surfing championships are also held here on an annual basis.
Situated only 15 minutes from the main airport of Fuerteventura, Caleta de Fuste is a great holiday destination and for both couples and families alike offers a wide range of activities and amusements.
