From The Editors Desk

18th May 2018


Hi Penny is away this week so I am making my debut.

Fuerteventura is a wonderful island with a very efficient bus service. It is so easy to get around the island with a little planning beforehand.

I am currently walking the GR131 – see the information on walking in the paper – and will be doing the next stage from El Cardon to Costa Calma this week.

I will be catching a bus to Rosario from Corralejo, then to Gran Tarajal and then a local service to El Cardon. That journey will take about 2 ½ hours. It also allows you to see parts of the island that you otherwise wouldn´t.

The walk is about 20 kilometres and relatively flat and easy – another great way to see the island.

Go on – before it gets too hot – explore the island.

    Fancy a fresh tasty meal right beside the sea, then this is for you.

    Just walk along towards the harbor to discover great sea front restaurant offering all cuisine. There is plenty of seating outside of which is enclosed with new looking plastic awnings so visibility is still good and it effectively keeps the sea winds off you.
