New Edit


Welcome. Very pleased to say our problems are now solved and you should all be receiving our weekly paper. 

One of the most popular airlines to Fuerteventura is Ryanair. They have many more flights this year and promise to refund the difference if you can find a flight cheaper! They have also reduced the prices of check in bags.

Not my favourite airline for comfort I must say however it certainly has its advantages. For a four hour flight one has to say is it worth it???

Despite the cooler weather at the moment there are plenty of sunburnt bodies walking around. Keep smiling.

    Fancy a fresh tasty meal right beside the sea, then this is for you.

    Just walk along towards the harbor to discover great sea front restaurant offering all cuisine. There is plenty of seating outside of which is enclosed with new looking plastic awnings so visibility is still good and it effectively keeps the sea winds off you.
