Las Playitas

A relaxing retreat in Fuerteventura

Brimming with all the charm you’d expect from a Spanish fishing village, Las Playitas is a relaxing antidote to bustling tourist hubs.

The black sand beach and its seafront cafés are perfect for soaking up the sun and watching the world go by, while energetic types can make the most of the water sports, from windsurfing to sailing. In fact, sports fans of every kind will love it here thanks to exceptional facilities including bike hire, tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course. In the evening enjoy the catch of the day and local wine in a beachside setting. Holidays to Las Playitas are ideal for families and couples alike.
