Costa de Antigua is as convenient as it is beautiful, making for a hassle-free holiday. The vibrant beach resort is a stone’s throw from Fuerteventura airport and boasts stunning beaches, lively nightlife and plenty of opportunities for family fun, so you’re never too far away from your next getaway. Purpose built for tourists, you won’t struggle to find anything you need, from supermarkets to boat tours to karaoke bars.
The main beach is a tropical paradise; where golden sand is lapped by azure waters, restaurants and bars line the promenade and plenty of water sports keep you entertained. There are also rocky coves hidden in nearby Pozo Negro for those wanting to experience the Canary Island’s striking volcanic landscape. If you want Costa de Antigua’s amenities, but fancy a taste of traditional Fuerteventura, a visit to Antigua town won’t disappoint. The village is one of the oldest in the island and its church dates back to the eighteenth century.
Party animals will want to visit Costa de Antigua during the summer months when the heart of the resort beats at its fullest. Nightclubs open until the small hours and chic cocktail bars and beach parties are a must. The weather is great year-round so families and couples can enjoy a peaceful getaway during the quieter months. It’s worth renting a car and driving to Costa Calma in the south; the views along the way are as breath-taking as the beach resort itself.
If you’re looking for a relaxing, affordable escape, Costa de Antigua is the place for you.
Caleta de Fuste
Costa de Antigua’s sister resort, Caleta de Fuste is a great spot for families. Its location under a creek protects it from strong winds and waves, making it one of the safest places to swim in the island. And, with four stunning beaches at its feet, there are plenty of chances to swim. Nightlife is a little more low-key – you’re more likely to enjoy a cocktail by the beach than dance the night away.
The picturesque village is home to many historical landmarks and artisan shops, perfect to stock up on handmade souvenirs. Lose yourself in a maze of white-washed buildings, winding cobbled streets and rustic charm. The eighteenth-century church and restored windmill-turned-cultural-centre are a must visit. Keep an eye out for flyers advertising the market – it’s a unique chance to sample some of the island’s best local produce.
Pozo Negro means ‘black well’ in Spanish. Considering this area was one of the last lava flows in Fuerteventura, it’s very fitting. The lava flows left their legacy on the beach, a stretch of black pebbly stones and volcanic sand. The amenities are scarce, but there are two great restaurants by the beach serving some of the freshest fish and seafood you’ll ever taste. Stay in this old fishing village if you want to escape crowds and enjoy a romantic getaway.
Exploring Costa de Antigua…
Fun at Costa de Antigua beach
Costa de Antigua’s handmade beach has everything you need, from a roomy stretch of white sand to soak up the sun, to a great selection of bars and restaurants to grab a bite to eat. Most hotels are within walking distance of this golden paradise. Water sports include diving and snorkelling, but the little-ones will especially enjoy the submarine undersea excursion.
Costa de Antigua is home to two fully equipped golf courses. The Fuerteventura Golf Course boasts 18 holes and stunning surroundings; sun-drenched volcanic hills, tropical palm trees and the impressive Fuerteventura Golf Resort. The Salinas de Antigua Golf Club is a little more understated but just as beautiful. The club has a great restaurant, perfect for a little fine dining indulgence.
Visit Caleta de Fuste’s beaches
Caleta de Fuste has a main beach and four surrounding ones. The main beach is a long, wide stretch of white sand and safe waters, perfect for water sports like diving, snorkelling and jet skiing. The four surrounding beaches are protected by reefs and are definitely worth a visit – if anything for the chiringuito bar sitting on its own island off the coast.
Drive to Costa Calma
Go on a road trip across the rugged Canarian landscape until you reach Fuerteventura’s stunning south. Fuerteventura is a small island and you can get to the south in less than an hour, but you’ll want to stop to take the views in. Once you arrive in Costa Calma, enjoy the golden beaches, old village and rustic countryside.
The Canary Islands’ eclectic cuisine is the result of the many cultures that have sailed by its ports. You can expect local delicacies to go along traditional Spanish classics like tapas or paella. Sample a traditional Canarian stew followed by a bienmesabe dessert. A trip to the Canary Islands wouldn’t be complete without a taste of spicy mojo sauce – no savoury dish comes without it!

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating in Costa de Antigua. Whether you grab a bite by the beach or head inland for a night out, there’s a great selection of eateries to suit all tastes.
