To remember an experience well, and in detail, you need to have more than pictures. Its great to use words to remind you of a place. That is why I have written down three words that remind me of a Fuerteventura holiday. We visited Fuerteventura in December 2016 and loved it!

Everything on a Fuerteventura holiday is colourful. That goes for the sky, the sea and the buildings. There is amazing artwork everywhere you look. Some places do not really decorate the buildings, but Fuerteventura is not one of those places. The buildings are all wonderful colours, it actually makes the place feel really tropical. Our apartment was yellow! It was so bright and wonderful I actually loved waking up everyday and looking outside. The skies were so clear and bright it was a pleasure to get out every day.

A very British Fuerteventura holiday

This might sound a bit mad, since it is a Spanish island. The island did really remind me of Britain though. There are a lot of expats here. A lot of the businesses are run by British people and so it is a really great place for people who really want a piece of home with them. You can get all the comforts of home here, including food and conversation. Its a nice place if that is what you are looking for.

This applies to most places but more specifically Puerto Del Rosario. There are massive sculptures and whole buildings covered in art everywhere you look. It is absolutely stunning and really fascinating. You could walk around this town and have a whole display or art for the day, absolutely free. We found a lot of really cool sculptures in Corallejo too. Not only that there were people doing braids, juggling and being mimes all around the town. You can also find a whole host of live music in Corralejo everywhere you look, there are signs up promoting musical events happening. It is really a place that appreciates the arts.

  • I’m embarrassed to say, when I first clicked on this, I didn’t know what Fuerteventura was. I’ve now been educated, thank you! Love learning about new places and this island sounds beautiful!

  • So funny! There are so many parts of Spain (Benidorm haha) that are like visiting mini England. The USA has Florida for retirement and the UK seems to have claimed Spain as its number 1 retirement spot! I remember a decade or so back when everyone in the UK was investing in new Spanish property….before the housing crash. Apart from the Englishness, Fuerteventura looks great. I’ve heard lots of good things about if from people with families especially.

  • Never been to the Canary Islands, but I love how you approached it by using one-word adjectives! It does look really colorful — sometimes words are even better than pictures. It’s funny how you can be in one country but feel like you’re in another (I’m thinking of Macau, which was like Vegas, Portugal, and China all rolled into one). Glad you enjoyed it!

  • I am on a constant look-out for artsy places. This one fits in so well. I would love to walk around and admire the colours and sculptures around the place. Thanks for this. Cheers!!

  • Fuerteventura was actually a new word to me. I had never heard about this place before. But it looks lovely. I would love to go there and your approach to describing a place by adjectives is a nice way to inspire wanderlust in others.

  • This is such an amazing island and such a diversity of activities to choose from! I like the combination of your writing style and pictures.

  • I’d never heard of Fuerteventura before reading your post. I love how you had a yellow apartment! Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the color, it would be refreshing to wake up to that color in the morning.

    • Im glad I have been able to share with you a new place where you could possibly visit! Yeah it was nice to wake up to bright colours!

  • Your experience is very pleasant and looks happy. Do not be confused to find a place to stay, if you are on vacation to Bali.
