Affordable one-way flights to Fuerteventura
Despite being a favourite among the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura has managed to retain a natural beauty that other popular holiday spots may have lost. With stunning white sand beaches, a rich natural landscape and plenty of activities, it's a great choice for families and couples alike.
The Costa Caleta is especially family-friendly, as a purpose built resort complete with mini-golf courses, playgrounds and arcades. The sheltered horseshoe-shaped bay offers relaxation and water sports. Kids’ menus are a familiar sight at the restaurants, and a smattering of bars will keep night owls happy.

More about Fuerteventura
While Costa Caleta is pretty relaxed, Corralejo is even more laidback still - this isn't the place to come for all night clubbing scenes, raucous after dark action and busy, built-up resorts. The stunning white sands are a main attraction here, and the spectacular dunes of the Dunas de Corralejos National Park are worth a visit no matter which resort you choose on the island. Another option is Jandia, which also boasts its own National Park.
Jandia is another island resort with gleaming white sands, and the conditions attract windsurfers who want to hit the waves. You could also make the trip over to your Canary Island neighbour, Lanzarote, for two holidays in one! See the awe-inspiring Timanfaya National Park, with its volcanic craters and dramatic mountains for an otherworldly adventure.
