Costa Calma is located on the beautiful Canary Island of Fuerteventura. The resort is hugely popular with holiday-makers from other European countries and it’s no surprise that it is becoming a firm favourite with us Brits too!

The resort, town and hotels of Costa Calma were designed to complement the gorgeous natural landscape. There is even a ‘green belt’ of land that guards against the high-rise overdevelopment of many other Spanish resorts.

Based around a glorious 12 mile-long golden beach, the resort is a favourite for both water-sports fans and beach bums. The beach is thoroughly cleaned every single day, which makes it one of the most spotless stretches of sand you’re likely to find anywhere in the world.

With a wealth of different hotels and self-catering options to choose from we’re sure you’ll love this underrated gem of the Canary Islands.

One weekly event that brings the whole town together is the Sunday morning market. The colourful market is a great place to try some exotic local food and to stock up on those essential holiday souvenirs.


If you’re baking on the beach and long to take a dip in Costa Calma’s beautiful cool waters then why not try a bit of windsurfing. Costa Calma is one of the world’s best venues for windsurfing and plays host to many international competitions and tournaments.


For those who like to spend as much time under the water as on top of it, there are several dive schools, where you can try scuba diving and even achieve official qualifications that will allow you to use your new skills all around the world!

Being a fairly modern resort, most of the local restaurants are aimed specifically at tourists. This means that you’ll always be able to find your usual favourites from bangers and mash to pizza and burgers.


It’s worth bearing in mind that because of the area’s popularity with other European tourists, particularly Germans, that you’re bound to stumble on café’s with German menus and staff. Don’t panic though as they usually speak impeccable English and know how to serve a great quality beer!
