Caleta de FusteThis Resort which attracts mainly British Tourists is located approximately 8 km south of the Airport positioning it in a central location from where to explore the island.
Caleta de Fuste goes by several names; Costa Caleta, Caleta de Fuste and El Castillo (renamed for marketing purposes). The adjoining resort of Nuevo Horizonte, to the north of Costa Caleta, is also confusingly known as Costa Antigua.
The sheltered Artificial Beach is ideal for families and is made of imported Saharan sand (not quite as nice as the natural white marine sand found elsewhere on the island, but pleasant nonetheless).
Beside the beach is a Marina where there are many marine excursions on offer as well as other Water Sports. Adjacent to the Marina is the only historical building of note, El Castillo, an 18th century tower built to protect the Island from pirate attack.
Caleta de Fuste is home to Fuerteventura's only Golf Courses (although others are being built). The 18-hole, par 70, Juan Catarineu-designed Fuerteventura Golf Course was home to the Spanish Open in 2004.
A curious attraction close to Caleta de Fuste is the Chipmunk Mountain, where you can hand-feed the wild Chipmunks (actually Barbary Ground Squirrels, but just as cute).
Since this is a purpose built resort (with no Old Town), most of the Pubs and Restaurants are located in the many Commercial Centres along the main avenue. The Multiplex cinema shows some English Films, but most screens are dedicated to Spanish-language films. While there is not as much nightlife on offer as in Corralejo, there is still plenty to do at night.
Distance from the Airport: 7.6km
