DAY 2 THE CENTER
Betancuria with its marked flavor of history and tradition, its narrow streets full of flowers, the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere, the town of Betancuria, in the center of the Canary Island of Fuerteventura, is one of the jewels of the island that dazzles everyone who visits it.
The village of Santa María de Betancuria was founded by the Norman conquerors towards the year 1404 because, due to its location between mountains and far from the beach, it facilitated the defense against possible attacks. In this way, this charming place became the first capital of the Canary Islands. Currently, it still has immense historical value with the first monastery, the first cathedral and the episcopal seat of the entire archipelago.
Guise and Ayose viewpoint: The sculptures are a donation of the OHL company, are 4.5 meters high and about 1.5 meters wide and are the work of Emiliano Hernandez. Initially, it was planned to install them in the square next to the Palacio de Congresos of the capital, although finally a more emblematic location was chosen, associated precisely with the presence of the former warlords of the mahos. Check the 5 best viewpoints of the island.
DAY 3 – 4 THE SOUTH
In the south, the endless beaches of the Windward and Leeward coasts create a paradise. Walking for several kilometers along the sea, on golden sand with turquoise waters, is possible on the island of Fuerteventura.
Costa Calma located in the Southern part of Fuerteventura, within the municipality of Pájara, is the gateway to the world-famous Jandía Beaches. Costa Calma is located in the narrowest part of Fuerteventura, the sandy isthmus that separates Jandía from the rest of the island. This area is characterized by its impressive beaches, varied and modern accommodation and a wide range of activities. Its transparent and calm waters are ideal for any sport or activity at sea.
The area south of Playa de Sotavento is perfect for a good beach day. Contrary to what is happening in Playa Barca and Risco del Paso, this beach is for tourists, not for windsurfers.
It has a fine, white sand and turquoise water is. It has a good surface and is normal to find very few people in it..
To reach this area of Playa de Sotavento, we take a dirt road that begins at the Mirador de Sotavento (Sotavento Viewpoint), located on the old road FV-2, which runs from Costa Calma to Morro Jable and runs parallel to the highway . Going down that road, we arrived at a parking area on the beach. From here, choose the beach area that we like, without the crowds.
Between the beach and the cliff is a vegetated area that is perfect for shelter on windy days.
