Just a five minute walk will take you either into the town of Caeta de Fuste or to the long golden sandy beach.
The up-and-coming resort of Caleta de Fuste is very much a town for couples and families.
Less noisy, less bustling and more laid back than its larger, brasher counterparts on the other Canary Islands, Caleta is the place to come for a relaxing holiday.
More like Spain was 25 years ago, the town is clean, the locals friendly and there is a choice of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and pockets – Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Portuguese, Indian, Greek as well as traditional tapas, fish and steak bars.
Caleta is built around a large bay shaped like a horse show. There are plenty of shops to browse around, a Championship golf course, ten pin bowling, amusement arcades and several mini-golf courses. You can take a camel ride, go swimming with dolphins, enjoy a luxurious bubble bath, play tennis or go ten pin bowling.
A mini train runs from the harbour up the mountain which overlooks the town to the Montecastillo Centre where there are more bars and restaurants.
The main beach is pale golden sand and designed to gently slope into the sea making for some of the safest bathing in Europe. You can go out some considerable distance and still be in water safe enough to stand up in so it is ideal for children.
Around the main beach are numerous beach cafes and bars so refreshments are never far away.
South of the main beach are a number of little sandy lagoon bays. These small bays are dotted with little stone circles to give privacy and have also been designed with families in mind.
. These bays stretch all the way to the Atlantico shopping centre on the outskirts of the town, an undercover shopping centre with boutiques, bars and restaurants and lovely landscaped gardens set around a lake.
If you carried on past this area you will eventually come to the newly opened sea salt museum which gives a fascinating insight into how locals make sea salt (very popular in local dishes).
Walking along the main beach promenade to the north will eventually bring you into the harbour area. Here, water sports abound. An area has been especially cordoned off for water sports – wind surfing, jet ski, scuba diving can all be arranged from here and you can also go snorkelling. If you have never tried wind surfing, a special two hour taster session is available. There is a sea life centre and boat trips leave from the harbour to go whale watching or swimming with dolphins
In the evenings entertainment can be found – anything from live acts to karaoke, quizzes and even bingo! You are welcome to use any of the hotels or large time share complexes which often have cabaret acts on and a varied entertainment programme at normal drinks prices.
Caleta is also the perfect base for exploring this island. An excellent bus service will take you to the sand dunes of Corralejo in the north or the lagoons and golden beaches of Morro Jable in the south. If you hire a car you can find deserted coves, little fishing villages and even the wreck of an ocean-going liner beached just yards off shore.
Plenty of charter companies and ticket companies offer flights to the island from all main UK airports.
