In this video I show the main areas of Caleta de Fuste, including the marina, the beaches, shops, restaurants, bars, some of the hotels and the golf courses. I also talk a bit about what Costa Caleta was like in 1987 when I first stayed there.
First I show the marina area which is one of the nicest parts of the resort I think.
After that the video covers the two Caleta beaches – Castillo beach and Atlantico beach. Both beaches are completely artificial. The sand has been imported to create what I would describe as a “beach theme area” rather than a beach. They are without a doubt the worst beaches on Fuerteventura, but some people seem to love them. Each to their own I guess.
I then show some of the town centre commercial areas starting with Castillo Central. Then I cover the shops in Caleta de Fuste with some of the bars and restaurants in Caleta de Fuste too. I couldn’t really show the Caleta de Fuste nightlife in this video. Another day (or night) perhaps.
There are too many hotels in Caleta de Fuste to cover in one video but I do show the Barcelo Fuerteventura and the Hotel Elba Carlota.
This is followed by a quick look at the Fuerteventura golf courses – first the Fuerteventura Golf Resort, which is a championship course where the Spanish Open took place in 2004. Then I show the Golf Club Salinas de Antigua which is the “public” course.
I finish the video by going to the top of Chipmunk Mountain and show some general views of the area.
Caleta de Fuste 2018 is very different to Caleta in 1987 that is for sure.
