This Week - Introducing Fuerteventura and the camels.
Clearly visible, as the plane circled its descent over the sea, was the outline of the island of Fuerteventura with its long sandy beaches and low mountains spread out below. What a perfect retreat from the hurly burly of daily life and the harshness of a British winter.
This current escape in November had been a last-minute decision. Having visited Fuerteventura before, it was one we knew we would not regret.
Caleta de Fuste.Fuerteventura – one of the Canary Islands – lies south of Lanzarote off the west coast of Africa. Our destination was again the small resort of Caleta de Fuste on the east coast of the island. This is a modern resort built around an old fishing village that has a marvellous sandy beach in the curved bay.
With two lazy camels watching as they waited for passengers, we passed along the yellow sands and sun beds of the curved bay before reaching the old fort or ‘Castillo de la Caleta de Fuste’ and the Puerto Castillo Yacht Harbour in the old centre of the village. If you want to be a little more adventurous you can have a guided session playing with sea lions in the harbour or take part in other underwater activities on offer.
Continuing north around the headland, the scenery changes dramatically as the sea crashes over the rocks which form this part of the coast; here, if you are very quiet and still, you might see chipmunks as they scurry over the rocks stopping only to catch the peanuts which tourists feed them.
Now, I could tell you all about the Island Tour, the Aloe Vera Factory,and even our adventure into mountains on a Boom Trike . . . Oh, and goats . . .
