Caleta de Fuste

Caleta de Fuste, one of the major tourist towns on the island, is made for a relaxing holiday. A gentle pace of life, a sandy beach and calm seas, Caleta de Fuste appeals to couples and families alike.

Caleta de Fuste lies about 10kms south of the airport and has been built around a large bay which protects the beach from the sea making for very safe bathing. If you have never tried water sports, Caleta is the place to dip your toe in the water! The sea laps the golden, gently sloping sandy bay which is shaped like a giant horseshoe.

Caleta de Fuste is a place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The town itself has shops, bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes and pockets. Whether your choice of food be Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Greek, Indian or Portuguese – whether you want a fish or steak restaurant, a tapas bar or just British food – you will find it here.

Caleta de Fuste is very much a town for couples and families – less noisy, less bustling and more laid back than its larger, brasher counterpart Corralejo in the north, Caleta is the place to come for a relaxing holiday.

In the evenings, there is a choice of entertainment from live entertainment to quizzes. The town is clean, the locals friendly, there’s plenty of quiet, tree lined avenues and not a skyscraper in sight!

There is no old town of Caleta de Fuste because the town was designed as a purpose built tourist resort. There are, however, some old buildings such as the castle remaining in the town.
