The beautiful island of Fuerteventura in the canary islands and around the

[fweɾteβenˈtuɾa]), a Spanish island, is one of the Canary Islands, in the
Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa. It is situated at 28°20' north, 14°00'
west. At 1,660 km² it is the second largest of the Canary Islands, after
Tenerife. It was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO on May 26, 2009.
The first tourist hotel was built in 1965 followed by the construction of
Fuerteventura Airport at El Matorral, heralding the dawn of a new era for the
island. Fuerteventura, with its 3,000 sunshine hours a year, was placed firmly
on the world stage as a major European holiday destination.
Trade Winds and winter swells of the Atlantic make this a year-round surfers'
paradise. Sailors, scuba divers and big-game fishermen are all drawn to these
clear blue Atlantic waters where whales, dolphins, marlin and turtles are all
common sights. With many hills present throughout the Island, hikers are also
attracted to this Island.
Much of the interior, with its large plains,
lavascapes and volcanic mountains, consists of protected areas which can be best
be explored in a 4x4 or (for the more daring) with a cross-country motorbike on
an organised tour.
The climate on Fuerteventura is pleasant
throughout the year. The island is also often referred to as the island of
eternal spring. The sea adjusts the temperature making the hot Sahara winds blow
away from the island. The island's name in English translates as 'strong
fortune' or 'strong wind', the Spanish word for wind being 'viento'. During the
winter months, temperatures average a high of 22 °C (72 °F) and a low of around
15 °C (59 °F), whereas during the summer a mean high of 35 °C (95 °F) and a low
of 20 °C (68 °F) can be expected. Precipitation is about 147 mm per year, most
of which falls in autumn and winter. October is the month with highest rainfall.
A sandstorm known as the Calima (similar to the Scirocco wind that blows
North from the Sahara into Europe) blows southwestward from the Sahara Desert
and can cause high temperatures, low visibility and drying air. Temperatures
during this phenomenon rise temporarily by approximately 10 degrees Celsius. The
wind brings in fine white sand, visibility can drop to between 100 to 200 m
(328.08 to 656.17 ft) or even lower and can even bring African locusts to the
