Cruises to Fuerteventura

A world away from the glitzy resorts and water parks of Tenerife, Puerto del Rosario is Fuerteventura’s capital city. This quaint harbour town gives you the chance to see the everyday working side of the Canary Islands, with a bustling fishing industry. There are plenty of facilities for visitors here, including a mellow promenade overlooking the beach where you can browse for souvenirs or relax with a drink in a local bar. Look for the snail sculptures for the perfect photo op! This seafront area has been recently regenerated, with historic Canarian architecture just beyond the harbour.

Puerto del Rosaria Fuerteventura

FUERTEVENTURA - DID YOU KNOW?

This picturesque port was originally founded as a cattle-raising settlement rather than a fishing town, known then as Puerto de Cabras. It earned its current name and capital city status in 1860, when the seafront was developed into a port.

Head to local beaches like Playa Blanca and Puerto Lajas to enjoy sunbathing, surfing and sailing. You can also get out underneath the waves on a spear fishing or scuba diving exhibition, to see the colourful marine life dotting the island.

The historic town centre offers no shortage of charm with its whitewashed streets and notable buildings, including the House-Museum of Miguel de Unamuno and church of Nuestra Senora del Rosario.

If you have the time, it’s worth getting out of the city to explore the natural beauty of Fuerteventura! It blends rolling sand dunes with secluded turquoise coves in hotspots like Corralejo, and the port enjoys abundant sunshine throughout the year. Visit the Islote de Lobos Nature Reserve to see flowers bursting into bloom.

The culinary scene in Puerto del Rosario is fresh and tasty, based on locally caught seafood including mackerel and ‘sama’. Goat is another popular main ingredient in the city, which you’ll find roasted or stewed! Fresh goat’s milk cheese is also a top ingredient with its own Designation of Origin classification.
