With three thousand hours of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast with only 100km separating the ‘Punta de la Entallada’ from Cape Juby in Morroco and is the second largest (after Tenerife) of all the islands.
The weather conditions of Fuerteventura are very similar to Florida and Mexico which are on the same latitude, which make this the ideal wedding location. There is nowhere else in the Canary Islands with as many enormous sand dunes and long sandy beaches.
Fuerteventura is generally regarded as the oldest of all the Canary Islands and its strange contours come from various volcanic episodes. The last eruption occurred around 7,000 years ago so you’re pretty safe.
Fuerteventura is very popular for Water sports and every year hundreds of surfers, windsurfers and divers travel to Fuerteventura especially during the month of July when the island is host to the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south.
