Why Holiday on Fuerteventura

Finding Atlantis: by Anthony Fortune

Spain has always been a first choice for my holidays but Fuerteventura was never on my list of places to visit. However, when I came across pictures of the island and the Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real, I was blown away – so I headed off to discover what this sun-kissed isle had to offer.

One of the oldest of the mid-Atlantic Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a destination for sun, beach and water sports enthusiasts. It didn’t even exist 20 million years ago when a volcanic eruption forced it out of the waves. And the tourist industry is one of the biggest benefactors of this geological miracle – thanks to the islanders’ famous openness to people from all around the world.
