A Fuerteventura resident’s view of the best hotels on the beach in Fuerteventura.
As we all know that when hotels describe themselves in brochures and websites they can sometimes be a little economical with the truth. I have stayed in hotels around the world that claim they are “just two minutes from the beach”. That is two minutes if you can run as fast as Usain Bolt of course.
Just to save you making that mistake if you are looking for a hotel in Fuerteventura I thought I would show the top 10 Fuerteventura hotels that are ACTUALLY on the beach, not somewhere vaguely near.
