My Pick of The 5 Best Surf Camps in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura, part of the sun soaked Spanish Canary Islands, is a vibrant island with dramatic landscapes soaked in surf culture. Thanks to its long, uncrowded beaches, year-round great climate, and varied waves, there are surf camps in Fuerteventura to suit every level from beginners to more experienced surfers.

Known as the Hawaii of Europe, and the islands of ‘Eternal Spring,’ the Canaries are home to the best surf in Europe and Fuerteventura is one of the main hubs. As a volcanic island, the landscapes of Fuerteventura are desert-like and otherworldly, with turquoise waters lapping at black beaches, lined by golden dunes.

The surf breaks are just as varied, ranging from beginner-friendly swells to challenging drops. There are also opportunities to try wind surfing, kite surfing and scuba diving. Some of the best surf camps in Fuerteventura also offer yoga classes for the perfect active holiday combination.
