Hotel La Colina

Hotel in Morro del Jable

Hotel La Colina is located in Morro del Jable, 1.1 km from Playa Las Coloradas. It offers rooms with an outdoor pool, free parking, a shared lounge and a garden. We were very surprised by the place and our room. It is not so much like a hotel more like a bed and breakfast family business. Our room was very spacious it almost looked like an apartment. We also had a very beautiful balcony-like place with windows to the village and a nice view to the pool. Since the amount of rooms is limited it also feels like you have a private pool. We also really enjoyed the service from Carmen. She was super sweet and always eager to give us the best experience. Every morning she was bringing us tasty homemade sweets and she was super excited to give us suggestions for what to visit. The owner also helped us to find an affordable rental car which was very difficult and expensive at the time. The breakfast was nice and there is also the chance to use the kitchen to cook your own dishes. Plus the location is very good in the beautiful morro jable. Walking distance from restaurants and the beach.

Where to stay on Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is an island whose name translates to “good luck” or “lasting happiness. It is part of the Canary archipelago, and the oldest of all its islands. Scientists have determined that the island originated about twenty million years ago.

Here are the longest beaches of the archipelago. They stretch for many kilometers, shining in the sun with golden sand. In fact, they are the main attractions of the island. Many tourists come here just for them. It is worth mentioning that the island is especially popular with windsurfers, because the weather is windy here for a long time. But do not be afraid: the wind is not strong enough to spoil the rest of those who are not interested in windsurfing. The weather on the island is always very nice and the rain is very rare all year round.

The central part of the island is rather small settlements, its nature is still pristine. The population density of the island is the lowest in the archipelago. As for the local fauna, it is quite diverse; the most common animals here are goats. It is believed that they are much more than people permanently residing on the island. It should be noted the absence of poisonous insects, there are no dangerous to humans reptiles and mammals.

Readers may have already started planning their trip and wondered: “Where should I stay on Fuerteventura? You will find the answer in the following sections of the text.

Island municipalities

The island is divided into six municipalities:

  • Tuineje;
  • Betancuria;
  • Pahara;
  • Antigua;
  • La Oliva;
  • Puerto del Rosario.

It should be noted that part of the municipality of La Oliva is a small island called Lobos, whose area is only five square kilometers. The island is uninhabited.

Tuineje .

If you are interested in sightseeing, in this municipality you should see the church of San Miguel and visit the cloister of St. Mark the Evangelist.

The municipality will be appreciated by those tourists who dream of a quiet holiday, feeling tired of the rhythms of big cities. However, this statement is probably true for almost every municipality of the island. Tourism here started developing relatively recently, and therefore there is not a lot of discos and nightclubs, the variety of entertainment. The main thing that attracts travelers to the island (and, in particular, the municipality of Tuinehe) – the nature of fabulous beauty and invariably wonderful weather.

Where to stay: Finca Juan Gropar, Manitaga, Villa Oliva, Villa Mary.

Betancuria

The municipality was named after Jean de Betancourt who conquered the island at the beginning of the 15th century. Some consider it one of the most beautiful municipalities on the island. It is practically in the central part of Fuerteventura.

One of the main attractions here is the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Betancuria. The building you will see is a reconstruction of an old temple, built in the first years of the XV century and destroyed by the pirates-berbers in the nineties of the XVI century. The church was rebuilt at the beginning of the 17th century. It should be noted that some parts of the original building have been preserved to this day. These are, in particular, elements of the structure of the bell tower building. The interiors of the church are beautiful and rich, and travelers usually examine them with great interest.

In general, there are quite a few old buildings on the territory of the municipality. You can easily imagine what this place looked like a few centuries ago: it hasn’t changed much over the centuries. You will see houses built right in the crater of the volcano. Of course, the volcano is dormant, so the residents feel safe and secure.

In the municipality there is an observation deck with a spectacular view of the island. There are two statues representing the ancient rulers who ruled the island before it was conquered by the conquistadors.

Speaking of local attractions, two museums must be mentioned. One contains archaeological and ethnographic exhibits, while the other is devoted to religious art. If you are interested in history and religion, you have to visit both museums. According to experts, the historical value of their exhibits is very high.

On the outskirts of the municipality you will see the ruins of a Franciscan monastery. Near them there is an unusual landmark, called by the locals the Devil’s Hollow. According to legend, here the builders of the monastery chained the devil to the rock, and then he extracted from the hollow the stones needed to build the temple.

Separately, we should note the amazing local biodiversity and very scenic landscapes.

Where to stay: Villa Margarita, Casa Dona Carmen, Casa Princess Arminda.

Pahara

This is one of the longest municipalities of the archipelago. It is located in the southwest of the island. This area is surrounded by lush exotic vegetation.

If you come to the island to sunbathe on the beach and swim in the warm ocean, you should stay in one of the hotels and guest houses of this municipality. The beaches are enormous: no other island in the archipelago has such vast beaches. The coast is incredibly popular with windsurfers: there are international competitions in this sport.

The municipality has a large pool and the water is freshwater. Mention should also be made of the ancient waterwheel (now a historical site): at one time a camel was put into its “mechanism” and the power of this animal set the wheel in motion.

One of the main local attractions is an ancient church, the decoration of which you will see unusual elements, reminiscent, oddly enough, of the art of the Aztecs. There are stylized snakes, birds, a panther and the sun – the images that decorate the entrance of the temple.

Antigua

The municipality is located in the central part of the island. Here you will see many old windmills: the area is famous for them. There is even a peculiar museum devoted to them and agriculture in general. It looks like this: around the old windmill, where corn was once milled, the exotic garden (palm trees, molochais, cacti, agaves) is verdant; the visitor of this unusual museum can see different tools of Canarian farmers and learn the history of local agriculture. And, of course, you can buy souvenirs (handmade).

Interestingly, the locals distinguish two types of mills – “male” and “female”. The mills of the first type have a square base. The second type is characterized by smoother walls and a wide round base.

There are many ancient temples, each of which is worth seeing. Another local landmark is the fortress of the XVIII century. In the territory of the municipality, modern buildings are located next to buildings in the Spanish and Moorish styles, which looks very colorful.

Speaking about the municipality, we can also note that most of the locals are engaged in agriculture, raising goats.

Where to stay: Elba Lucia Sport & Suite Hotel, Globales Coats Tropical, Apartamento Costa Golf 1.

La Oliva

The municipality is located in the north of the island. As noted above, part of it is the small island of Lobos. Like the entire archipelago, this island is of volcanic origin. It emerged about seven thousand years ago. Above the island towers a lighthouse. On the territory of Lobos is a nature reserve – or rather, the island itself is part of a larger reserve. Here you can see about one hundred and fifty species of rare plants. On the bottom of the ocean around the island stretches reefs, this area is also a reserve. Its beauty never fails to impress travelers.

But the islet is not the only natural attraction of the municipality. You should also see the dunes of the Corralejo Park, the Montaña de Tindaya and the local volcanic landscapes.

However, the municipality is known not only for its natural monuments. There are also architectural attractions. The main one is the seventeenth-century building, which the locals call the Colonel’s House. If you are interested in ancient civil architecture, typical of the archipelago, you should definitely see this landmark.

Where to stay: Rural Restaurante Mahoh, GBH Casa Las Portadas, Boutique Oasis Casa Vieja.

Puerto del Rosario

This is a city with the status of a municipality. It is the administrative center of the island, as well as its main port. The history of the city began in the second decade of the XVIII century. At present, the city is the capital of the island.

There are many attractions and tourist spots in the municipality. These include the museum of Spanish philosopher Miguel de Unamuno. The museum exhibition is located in the house where the philosopher lived during his exile. Of course, nowadays the reference to exile in the Canary Islands sounds anecdotal, but at the beginning of XX century, when the philosopher was convicted for speaking out against the government, the archipelago was not yet considered a resort area. And the disgraced philosopher who lived there probably wished his exile to the Canaries would end sooner. Or maybe he was one of the first to appreciate the local paradisiacal climate and stunning nature, and he ended up just enjoying the “punishment” imposed on him.

Also in the municipality you can see some beautiful ancient temples, an eco-museum, a sculpture park and a number of other interesting sights.

Where to stay: JM Puerto Rosario, El Olivar Suites, La Cueva del Bounty.
