Fuerteventura, with its wide range of activities, shallow sloping beaches and warm sea is a perfect family vacation destination.
On the eastern coast from Morro Jable in the south to the sand dunes of Corralejos and the northern beaches beyond, the sea is always easily accessible for families with young children.
All of the larger beaches will have life guards in attendance with clearly marked areas for safe swimming.
Surf and Windsurf schools throughout the island offer family oriented vacations aimed at all ages.
Cycling companies have children's bikes for hire or can organise less strenuous rides for families, complete with pick ups and route advice.
Whale and dolphin watching trips leave from Morro Jable, Calete de Fuste and Corralejo on the east coast.
At Morro Jable, a small submarine takes visitors out to explore the rocky underwater world just off the coast teeming with fish, from large grouper to bright shoals of sardines.
