A laid back resort that still knows how to pack a punch, Costa Caleta – also known as Caleta de Fuste – on Fuerteventura’s east coast is a favourite family destination. A purpose-built resort with a golden sand beach, family friendly amusements and a huge choice of beachside restaurants and bars mean the kids will be entertained while adults can sit back and relax in the Spanish sun.
There is only one beach in Costa Caleta, a man-made beach which spoils visitors with its imported golden sand from the Sahara Desert. This 1 km stretch of sand has a few pebbly patches but is otherwise a luxuriously sheltered part of the coast, set in a horseshoe-shaped bay. On the gently sloping sand, there’s a play area for the kids and also plenty of water sports for those looking for an adrenaline rush.
As well as lazy days on the beach, Costa Caleta knows how to keep the family entertained. The mini golf course is always a popular choice with kids and big kids alike or venture towards Chipmunk Mountain where you can feed tame chipmunks! If you want to see more of Fuerteventura, hop on an excursion to explore the rest of the beautiful National Park of Dunas de Corralejo where visitors can see neighbouring Lanzarote from the banks of soft white sand.
Since Costa Caleta is a purpose built holiday resort, the main selection of restaurants and bars are situated around the main street. Smells of delicious fresh food waft from the restaurants onto the main street and the bars complement a nice evening atmosphere. Although it’s not the liveliest of resorts, Costa Caleta is nearby to the capital of Puerto del Rosario which stays busy until late in the evening.
