Caleta De Fuste Travel Guide
Caleta de Fuste
Fuerteventura's busiest holiday resort has been built up around the town of Caleta de Fuste, also known as Castillo, about six miles (10km) south of the island's airport. The resort's horseshoe-shaped gently sloping beach is man-made, covered with imported golden sand. Caleta de Fuste is a family orientated resort while also boasting a range of restaurants and bars. Holidaymakers at this Spanish resort town can also enjoy the usual water sports and activities such as snorkelling, diving, water skiing, surfing and going on fishing trips. The town is well equipped with a number of crèches as well as massage parlours and beauty salons for the few occasions when you're not on the beach. The resort is steadily growing in facilities and popularity, the latest addition being a golf course. The town consists of a long main street lined with low-rise buildings containing several restaurants and bars. Caleta de Fuste's top-rated eateries include Fado Rock Steak House and Risto Pizza La Torre.
For a good night out in Caleta de Fuste, stop in at Mappy's Bar. There are also numerous watersports on offer, boat trips and even undersea excursions on a submarine. Accommodation is mainly in apartment blocks. Caleta de Fuste's central location makes it a good base from which to explore the rest of the island, although there is little public transport and hiring a car is necessary for most excursions.
