Fuerteventura

is one of the seven canary islands and with 1660 km² the second largest.

I really had no idea how this island looks and kind of booked my flight pretty random. At first I was suprised, because it was much different from my expectation. I was expecting palm trees, maybe a bit of jungle and some rivers. But no, Fuerteventura is pretty much rocks and sand. A lot of sand, also regarding all the beaches (its an island, duh)

After the initial "shock" we decided to see whats beyond the harsh appearance. Somebody told us "Fuerteventura doesn't open itself to you, you've got to open yourself towards it" and that person was so right. We stayed a week in a hotel in the southern part of the island ("Moro Jable") and rented a car to drive around the island, which was great. Traffic is not busy at all, so expect a nice drive without rush hours or traffic jams.



The dunes in the north are fantasic! It feels like being in the desert with an ocean right next to you

Wildlife is pretty...limited i'd say. We saw a lot of goats, which are maybe the species most likely to survive in this kind of landscape.

But when you stay at a certain place for a while (and unpack food) you'll discover chipmunks. A LOT of them. And they are not scared of humans at all :)

Cofete was my favorite place on the whole island. It takes over an hour on a VERY bumpy road to get there, but it is well worth it. Have you ever seen a cemetary at the beach? Me neither!

Spectacular shots! I spent a couple of months on Tenerife, probably the most diverse of all the Canary Islands but there is nothing like the Cofete Beach there. I love the wild and remote feel of that place. Awesome post.

I think next time Id check out tenerife, different kinds of landscape is more interesting in the long run :D Thanks!

So beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Looks awesome place to hike and explore. Also looks kind of secluded and remote.

I dont know if I would recommend hiking...there are no trees and no shade. thought about it aswell but noticed the sun is quite strong at noon. mountainbike on the other hand...

Your works are fantastic.
