Wind-based sports

Fuerteventura is known especially for its blustery conditions – some translate Fuerteventura to mean ‘strong winds’ – which make it a particularly incredible destination for wind-based sports.

The island is so popular for windsurfing that it’s actually where the Professional Windsurfers Association hosts their windsurfing speed and slalom events in the summertime.
