Introduction to Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

Puerto del Rosario welcomes you to Fuerteventura in the Eastern Canaries.

With a picturesque port area, and plenty of shops, restaurants and open-air cafés, Puerto del Rosario is a fun place to visit. There’s no defined centre to the town – apart from around the port – but walking round the streets is a great way of finding interesting shops, or discovering family-owned bars serving tapas, local wines and Canarian cuisine, such as fish with spicy sauce.

Home to over 150 beautiful beaches,  Fuerteventura is a popular holiday destination. The Canaries second largest island has a glorious climate, boasting almost year-round sunshine and warmth. A volcanic island, Fuerteventura also has stunning natural landscapes that beg to be explored, as well as crystal clear waters that are a mecca for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts.
