When your ship harbors at Puerto del Rosario on the eastern end of the Canary Islands’ second largest island, Fuerteventura shore excursions are custom designed for maximum enjoyment with minimum effort.
The island, which is just 62 miles in length, boasts almost 100 miles of pristine white-sand beaches that are gently lapped by calm, emerald green ocean waters. Fuerteventura shore excursions to Corralejo, a former fishing village on the island’s northeast coast, feature a unique stretch of sand. Nicknamed “Popcorn Beach,” it’s covered with small pieces of white coral that have washed ashore. These pieces are mixed with bits of black volcanic rock and beach sand that truly resemble kernels of popped corn. On your cruise to Fuerteventura, enjoy strolling Corralejo Natural Park with its large, protected golden sand dunes.
To fully appreciate the beauty of the island, schedule Fuerteventura cruise excursions that will have you hopping aboard a 4x4 all-terrain vehicle for an island adventure to the quaint villages of Villaverde, La Oliva, and Tindaya, each with their own charm and legends. Stop at El Cotillo beach for a swim and some fun in the sun. If you prefer, travel in motor coach comfort to see the island’s highest point that affords panoramic views and invites post-worthy photos. Visit the exotic village of Vega de Rio Palmas and hear stories of the Tindaya Mountain’s mystical history while on your European cruise.
For a change of pace, book Fuerteventura cruise excursions that take you on an exclusive tour of an aloe vera plantation. You’ll learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about this eco-friendly plant that’s at least 5,000 years old and has multiple healthful properties. Participate in a workshop that lets you cut an aloe leaf, taste the pulp and flower, and try out the wide variety of cosmetic products made with aloe vera and other plants grown on the property, including olive and cactus fig. Have a regenerative treatment or relaxing aloe massage and shop for products to take home.
