Car Hire Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura Airport Guide

Unlike the rest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura  has white sandy beaches with the best of them found along the northern and southern coasts. It’s there that the main resorts have sprung up. You may simply want the sun, sand and sea for your holiday but by hiring a car you can explore the mountains of the centre and with a little Spanish, discover how the people make a living in the traditional villages. Whilst Fuerteventura is a biosphere reserve, you’ll not find a huge amount of visible wildlife as the award mainly recognises the insect life of the island but there are plenty of fish, and often whales and dolphins, in the seas off the island.


Fuerteventura Airport Directions

Fuerteventura’s airport is found 5 km south of the capital of the island, Puerto del Rosario. The airport is right on the coast and the main road leading from it to the capital, the FV2, tracks inland. Once you’ve got your bags and collected your hire car, you are no more than ten minutes from the centre of the capital.


Fuerteventura Airport Parking

There are 945 spaces for parking at Fuerteventura Airport found a couple of minutes’ walk from the terminal. There are disabled spaces a little closer but you certainly don’t have to walk far to access the airport from your vehicle.


Fuerteventura Airport Flight Information

Flights to Fuerteventura are readily available from all across Europe. From the UK you have the choice of seasonal charter flights from the holiday companies or year round flights from several regional and national airports with Ryanair and easyJet.


Hotels Near Fuerteventura Airport

Fuerteventura is all about tourism and the hotels there reflect that in the facilities they offer. If money’s no object, try the Elba Palace Golf which is set in its own golf course and which starts from 100 euros a night. At the lower end of budgets are the Blue Sea Puerta Caleta apartments which are perfectly adequate and will only set you back 25 euros a night.


Fuerteventura Time Zone

Fuerteventura is on the same time as Greenwich Mean Time and located in the Western European Time Zone (GMT). It adds an hour in summertime.

Fuerteventura Info

Fuerteventura is one of the smaller Canary Islands and the least visited but despite that, over a million travellers visit each year. The economy, which used to rely on agriculture and fishing is now almost solely dependent on tourism. With the decline of tourism in the wake of the recession, Fuerteventura now has the highest unemployment rate in Spain at nearly 30%. It is a popular destination, not just for its beaches and sunshine but also for its wildlife and history.

Fuerteventura Trivia:
  • Fuerteventura was conquered from the native people by Spain in 1404
  • The former capital, Betancuria was the first city founded on the island
  • Nearly 75,000 people live on the island year round
  • Fuerteventura was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2009
