Located right on Costa Caleta’s beach, the Barcelo Fuerteventura Hotel enjoys a great location. The shops and restaurants of the town’s centre and the Costa Caleta harbour are all within walking distance. The hotel boasts two lagoon-style, saltwater pools. One comes with a whirlpool, while the other is heated in the winter. Between them they share a huge sun terrace and children get a separate saltwater pool nearby. When it comes to dining options, choose between the al fresco grill restaurant or the high-quality hotel buffet. Rooms include air-conditioning, satellite TV and a balcony or terrace. For an extra fee, secure yourself a sea-view room.
Overview of Costa Caleta
Costa Caleta, also known as Caleta de Fuste, is a smart and stylish resort town on the east coast of Fuerteventura. It’s known for its large beach, attractive harbour lined with shops and restaurants and its two large golf courses. Barcelo village, fronting the main beach, is where all the action takes place. Although Costa Caleta consists mostly of new-builds and isn’t for those seeking out traditional Canarian culture, the town has plenty to offer for holidaymakers who want a chilled out holiday to Fuerteventura.
Things to do in Costa Caleta
Only an eight-minute walk from the Barcelo Fuerteventura Hotel is El Castillo, an 18th-century defensive tower.

To the south is the Salinas del Carmen salt works, home to a salt museum and intriguing whale skeleton. If you’re happy to simply relax in the sun, Costa Caleta’s man-made beach slopes gently to the sea and is the perfect place to spend the day.

For a holiday that provides relaxation and excitement in equal measure, Costa Caleta is an ideal destination. Whether you’re enjoying the peace and quiet of the beach or living it up in the vibrant bars and pubs, it’s going to be a holiday to remember.
