Walking and hiking in Fuerteventura

When traveling to Fuerteventura by ferry, you will arrive at one of its three main ports: Morro Jable, Corralejo and Puerto del Rosario, which is the island’s capital. Regardless of your port of arrival, you can find stunning sandy beaches, accommodation options and natural wonders all within walking distance!

Endless sandy coasts and the largest European desert await you in Fuerteventura, where you can go for long walks and enjoy beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. You can even explore the natural wonders of the Fuerteventura on foot, as there is a combined total of 255 km of hiking trails among main resorts, quaint villages and volcanic sites. 

Most trails are marked, while you can also find guided tours in points of interest, such as Caleta de Fuste. To explore at your leisure, we recommend the Camino Natural de Fuerteventura (from Corralejo in the north to Punta de Jandia in the south) and the natural park of Jandía.

Tip: if you are close to the port of Corralejo, you can plan a day trip to Los Lobos by boat and explore this small island entirely on foot!

Biking in Fuerteventura

In Fuerteventura, there are countless flat roads for beginner-friendly biking, as well as more challenging routes for lovers of mountain biking. As the island is scarcely populated and the climate is mild, biking in Fuerteventura is fun and convenient throughout the year.

For short cycling excursions, check out the Corralejo - Majanicho and Los Pozos - Playa Blanca routes that take you to some of the best beaches in Fuerteventura! You can also opt for the cycling routes from the town of Antigua in the center of the island to nearby towns and mountainous settings.

There are also plenty of challenging and lengthy cycling routes. We highly recommend biking to the viewpoint of Morro Velosa for stunning views of Fuerteventura’s landscapes.

Tip: it is advisable to avoid long biking excursions when the weather is windy and dusty in Fuerteventura.

Bus services in Fuerteventura

When an attraction, beach or resort isn’t within walking or biking distance, you can always count on Fuerteventura’s great network of bus services.

The company Tiadhe provides locals and tourists alike with multiple bus connections throughout the island. The most popular bus services are between the main towns, such as Caleta de Fuste and Puerto del Rosario. In some cases, you might need to switch buses to reach certain destinations, like secluded villages or the airport, which isn’t always directly accessible.

Bus fares are rather cheap, with the cost depending on the itinerary you’ve chosen. There are also various transport passes for reduced fares.

Tip: from the airport, there are shared and private shuttle transfers, while you can also find taxis available all over the island. They can be quite pricey, however, for longer rides.
