    Car hire at Fuerteventura Airport - Visiting the Canary Islands

    Located in El Matorral, just three miles from the capital, Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura Airport has played a leading role in establishing the island as an upmarket tourist destination over the past few decades. First opened to international flights in January 1959, the airport gradually developed in the 1970s when regular flights began operating from the German city of Dusseldorf and many other key European cities. Nowadays it caters for a lot of leisure traffic arriving from top tourist-generating airports such as Manchester, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Birmingham, East Midlands, Dublin and Leeds, with Germany and the United Kingdom representing more than 50 per cent of its international traffic.

    Fuerteventura has all the right attributes for a memorable visit at any time of the year. Its location just off Africa's sun-drenched north-west coast has blessed it with some of the best beaches in southern Europe, most notably Playa Esquinzo, Playa Matorral, Playa Mal Nombre, Playa Barca and Playa Risco de Paso. The climate is perfect with very little rain and plenty of sunshine, plus a lovely sea breeze often blows across the island to cool you down in high summer. And being of volcanic origin, the land and seascapes are absolutely magnificent with an exotic combination of arid desert and verdant mountains awaiting those who choose to explore this enchanting island with a car hire from Fuerteventura Airport. The island is also renowned for its exhaustive range of outdoor activities, including sailing, kiteboarding, scuba diving and golfing.
