Activities on the water

people surfing at La Pared Beach in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is known as the Hawaii of Europe in part because of its many surf spots with plenty of waves for all abilities. The beach at La Pared is great for both beginner and intermediate surfers. Just 400 meters from the beachclub, the long waves break gently over the sandbanks making the beach good for beginners. When the swell gets up, its best for intermediate and advanced surfers with offshore winds common in the mornings.

Surf lessons are available as a supplement and include all equipment. Lessonsrun over 4 hours per day and are available to pre-book for one day (£45 per person), three days (£120 per person) or five days (£180 per person).Wellenkind, our onsite surf schoolprovide the lessons, youmay also travel to other beaches depending on the waves, tides and prevailing conditions.

Experienced surfers may rent a board from the surf school but must first complete a one-day refresher course. You won’t be able to rent the kit until you have successfully attended the refresher course. If you have your own board we recommend you bring it with you.

Windsurfing and kitesurfing

If you want to windsurf or kitesurf we recommend heading to the Costa Calma area of the Jandia peninsula (just ten minutes drive) an area renowned for its amazing white sand beaches, flat water and strong, consistent winds. Its the perfect spot for freestyle, freeride, slalom and speed windsurfing and kitesurfing.

The credentials are impressive, every year the bay hosts the Canarian Speed Championships and the official European ISWC Speed Championships so if you want to blast on flat water, this is surely the place to be!

Wind and weather conditions

The Canaries get their fair share of strong winds and Fuerteventura is no exception. The coast is a surfer’s paradise year-round, with the Atlantic providing consistent swells through the winter months. On average during the winter, the wind speed ranges between force 2-4.

Lying so close to Morocco and the Sahara, Fuerteventura is almost always warm, with sunshine most days. The daytime temperatures during the winter months tend to average around 22-25 degrees, while the evenings can be quite cool.

Fuerteventura is also blessed with a pleasant and stable climate. Mild winters and low rainfall make it the perfect location for cycling.

Away from the tourist trail, the roads are well maintained with minimal traffic so road cyclists can make the most of the island. Jump on one of our guided mountain bike rides and youll get to experience and see close up the breath-taking volcanic trails that form vast swathes of the island. There are plenty of exciting routes just outside of La Pared for both beginners and pros.

Local area

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and sits just 100km from the coast of Morocco and is home to over 150 golden, sandy beaches. UNESCO declared the island and its marine habitat a Biosphere reserve in 2009.

Our resort of La Pared is situated on the western side of the Jandia Peninsula in the south of Fuerteventura. The peninsula of Jandia was originally a separate island, the strait that separated the islands filled up many hundreds of years ago to form the Isthmus of La Pared (Isthmus meaning a narrow strip of land with sea on either side). This narrow strip of land is just 5km across and is the narrowest point on the island and separates the dramatic landscape of La Pared from the more touristy Costa Calma.

Fuerteventura is a fascinating and beautiful island, with so much more going for it than the beaches (although the beaches are pretty special).
