Caleta de Fuste, on Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, is a wonderful destination for everyone – perhaps, in particular, for families. Not only will you find beautiful beaches and well-priced accommodation, there’s also plenty of things to keep the entire family occupied and entertained for a week or longer – meaning it’s become a highly popular destination for families with children of all ages.
But for those with slightly older children who enjoy getting out and active in the great outdoors, the resort can be particularly appealing.
Getting Active in Caleta de Fuste
While you could probably just point your kids toward the beautiful beach and they’d find plenty to keep them occupied, holidays are for trying new things and experiencing everything a destination has to offer. Here are a few ideas to help make it a holiday to remember for all the right reasons – and impress your family no end!
Teens (and even pre-teens) might enjoy the opportunity to try out some of the exhilarating water sports on offer here. The excellent conditions (calm water and consistent winds) on Caleta de Fuste beach means there’s always plenty to choose from.
Windsurfing: Even someone with no experience can get into this fun sport, with the shallow waters making it ideal for youngsters and beginners. Lessons are available at a choice of windsurfing schools.
Stand-up paddleboarding: You can rent a board and go it alone, or join a guided tour, which is a great way for the whole family to explore the coastline safely.
Kitesurfing: Older teens will love the chance to give kitesurfing a go – and while it’s not easy, lessons are available and they’ll get a great sense of achievement!
Snorkelling or scuba diving: Depending on the age and confidence of your kids, the stunning array of marine life here makes getting into the underwater world a truly fascinating and thrilling activity. You can join a tour or just potter in the shallows with a snorkel, mask and flippers, or bring out the big guns and head out on a serious dive trip with older teens (after full safety briefing and training for beginners, of course).
Jet skiing: The ultimate adrenaline rush for those who love their thrills! While older teens can handle their own jet ski, the young ones can still be part of the fun on the back of yours!
The suggestion of a game of mini-golf is the perfect way to your children’s holiday hearts! It’s an activity kids of any age can get involved in, and it’s a great way to get them out in the sunshine and away from screens. There are a couple of mini-golf courses in town, with one being conveniently adjacent to the beach, so you can pop over for a game anytime. The courses are open from early morning until later at night – and the tip is that the evenings are much cooler!
Go on a Trike Tour
Whatever your children’s ages, they can get enjoyment out of this fantastic activity – because there’s room for two on the brightly coloured three-wheeler trikes, which means they can sit back and enjoy the scenery while you’re in full control. You’ll join a guided tour, with trikes and helmets included, and head out to explore the unique landscape of Fuerteventura, with the sun in your face and the wind in your hair. It’s a truly exhilarating experience, and we guarantee your ‘cool quotient’ with your kids will go through the roof after this one!

Types of Caleta de Fuste Airport Transfer Services
There are various options available to you when choosing what type of transfer service you’d like.
Taxi: Nobody enjoys standing in a queue, so one idea is to pre-book an airport taxi from Fuerteventura to Caleta de Fuste. As soon as you land, there’ll be a friendly driver waiting to get you to wherever you need to go – no waiting, no queueing, no stress.
Shuttle Bus: If you’re looking to save money, an airport transfer on a shared shuttle bus is not only cost-effective, but also very convenient. You’ll travel with other passengers going to your destination, so this makes it much more affordable.
Private Transfer: If money isn’t an issue, why not treat your family to the luxury of a private transfer from Fuerteventura to Caleta de Fuste. You’ll be met at the airport and delivered directly to the door of your accommodation in style.
Minibus Transfer: Consider booking a minibus transfer if you’re travelling with a large family group. It means you’ll all be able to travel together in one vehicle and the cost is less than a private transfer.
Choosing the Right Caleta de Fuste Airport Transfer
Before you decide which of the above options is right for your family and situation, there are two main factors you should be considering.
Cost: If you’re holidaying on a tight budget, make sure you compare the costs of every kind of service to see which one you’re most comfortable with.
Convenience: The other thing to think about is the level of convenience you’re after. Naturally, a shared transfer from Fuerteventura to Caleta de Fuste will cost considerably less, but a private service will deliver you and your family right to the door of your accommodation, which may be important to you.
