Aerial view of the Fuerteventura coast in the Canary Islands

If you’re familiar with any of Spain’s Canary Islands, it’s likely to be Tenerife, the biggest in the island chain. But Fuerteventura boasts its own craggy charm. The tourist infrastructure on the archipelago’s second-largest island is less developed compared to its larger cousin, so there’s a more laid-back feel to many of the villages along Fuerteventura’s stunning coastline. And if you feel like wandering, there’s plenty of coast to explore: The island offers the longest stretches of sand in all of the Canaries, with more than 150 named beaches. Bonus: The climate here is so mild that Fuerteventura has been dubbed ‘the island of eternal spring.’
