Fuerte

Post by Guest » Thu Aug 26, 2004 08:27

Looking to potentially go to Fuerte in Sept/Oct with my girlfriend and 10mth old son

I appreciate that the winds may not be upto much - but feel like getting some sun and maybe some wind

Is there any place (ie Hotel / Villa) that you would recommend?

Thanks,
Northy

Hmm. Well, it's a very broad question, and there must be no less than about 20,000 apartments & a couple of hundred hotels on Fuerte.

What are you're plans - are you looking to take a package hol, or diy? If the former, then you'll need to pick your location first:

Corralejo is the most poular resort for brits. In the North, close to Flag Beach windsurfing Centre & Glass Beach. There are just too many hotels/apartments to recommend. I also stay out of Corralejo 'cos it's grown too big, too quickly for my liking. If you're looking for "diy" apartments in & around Corralejo (or El Cotillo), email Ben Thomas at Flag Beach windsurfing centre - email address on my Fuerte pages on the main BNWC website.

Getting almost as big now is Caleta de Fuste/El Castillo - about 10 mins S of the airport. Thousands of apartments, several new hotels, new golf course, small bay full. Not good for windsurfing. BUT - you're ideally situated for trips up to Corralejo, El Cotillo AND Sotavento. But you'll need to hire a car.

In Sotavento itself, there's the famous Hotel Sol Gorriones which is now available from the UK. Practically right on the beach by the hire/World Cup centre. Nearby Costa Calma has also grown massively over the last few years with hotels & apartments a-plenty.

If you have any more specific requirements, feel free to post again.

this is a nice room
I like the padded walls very comforting
I wonder what the food is like?

But the Holiday Hints page does look nice !!!!

Oh no you dont Gerry
clean sheet not spoilt
I have no pilots licence so can not have aviator
But I do have a paper aeroplane
Will that do?

Cydweli lost to Carmarthen Athletic very sad
Though they did play well
Disappointment aleviated somewhat by Lager

All the best on the moon
seems a hell of a long way to wind surf
Did not realise there was a wind there (you learn something new every day)
