1,660 square kilometers of volcanic landscapes, beaches and extremely comfortable weather emerges in the Atlantic Ocean, just a few miles off the coast of Africa. Welcome to Fuerteventura, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. The island is a martian paradise, where you can experience yellow, purple, and red sunsets, gorgeous wide, shallow beaches — which are perfect for kite surfing — and desert dunes sculpted by fierce winds from the Sahara. The so called Island of Eternal Springs is just three hours from continental Europe.
