Small but perfectly formed, Costa de Antigua is a tranquil resort with everything you need for an all-round relaxing getaway. On the east coast of Fuerteventura, it’s nestled between a dramatic mountainous backdrop and a delightful horseshoe-shaped golden beach which slopes down to sparkling turquoise waters. Costa de Antigua holidays are heaven for beach lovers, who will adore the calm sea and soft sand, while sports enthusiasts will be impressed by the palm tree-lined fairways at the 18-hole golf course.
Hikers are also well catered for, with a host of walking paths in the rugged hills that line the town. Despite being compact, there are several shops, bars and restaurants along the beachfront offering freshly baked baguettes and pastries by day and traditional tapas by night. The only choice you’ll have to face on holidays to Costa de Antigua? Picking which of the lovely bar terraces to watch the sunset from.
