Why Holiday on Fuerteventura

My eternal search for the summer sun in the dead of winter

From October to March, I’m cold. My husband, immune to the fluctuations of the thermometer and unaware that his jacket has a zipper running up the front, makes fun of my constant moaning. But for me, as soon as autumn settles in, I get a chill I just can’t seem to shake, and no matter how many layers I bundle up in, or how long I soak in the tub, I’m never really and truly toasty warm for any length of time.

Fuerteventura: Go fly a kite.

If you fancy turning your holiday in Fuerteventura into a soar-away success, then take a tip from Ray Smith...and go fly a kite.

A kiter since he was six (he's now 71) Ray hasn't missed the island's annual kite festival for the last 12 years.

What the Independent says about Fuerteventura

The travel writer, Ben Ross, writes about Fuerteventura in the Independent Newspaper:

From earth and fire, to air and water. The elements combine rather differently in Fuerteventura. Just half an hour by ferry from Lanzarote, this place is all about the wind and the waves. In summer, the wind- and kite-surfing world championships are held here; in the winter, surfers ride the white water which crashes against nearly 100 miles of beach.
