Things to do in Costa Caleta
Costa Coleta beaches
Costa Caleta’s gorgeous horseshoe shaped beach is manmade, created using fine imported golden sand. Over the last couple of years it has enjoyed a facelift, with more than 4 million euros spent on upgrading the beach and creating two new central beach areas, perfect for sunbathing conveniently close to the shops! This is a great place for families. The water is calm, crystal clear and shallow, often filled with shoals of little fish when the tide comes in. And there’s a safety barrier to stop the kids swimming out too far.
The bustling harbour is floodlit and night and restored beautifully to give a lovely backdrop to your holiday. It is well known for its friendly fish, who visit especially to be fed - great fun for the kids! The harbour is also home to an exciting Oceanarium, well stocked with weird and wonderful sea creatures.
Boat and Catamaran Trips
Boat trips leave from Costa Caleta harbour, as do daily catamaran trips out to sea where - if you’re lucky - you’ll see dolphins, turtles and whales. You can even swim with them if you like! The four hour catamaran trip, which includes a tasty meal, costs around 45 Euros for adults and 25 Euros each for the kids.
The resort’s water centre, based at the harbour, offers a whole load of exciting activities like windsurfing, jet skiing, scuba diving and snorkelling. There are also good local diving schools where you and the kids can take a beginners diving course, or just have a go for fun.
There’s plenty of easy, mellow, scenic walking in the area, along pretty coastal paths where you’ll meet friendly local chipmunks who love to be fed by hand. On the beach at low tide there are fascinating rock pools to explore, teeming with interesting sea life. Walk south along the coast from Costa Caleta for just 20 minutes and you’ll reach the Atlantico shopping centre. Walk on further along a rough but easy path and you’ll find yourself in Las Salinas. Evening walks, after the heat of the day are a great way to chill out and work up a healthy appetite!
Not so much a mountain as a shallow hill! But the lovely views from the top of Chipmunk Mountain are worth the effort.
Costa Caleta is great for golfers of all ages, with two excellent 18 hole golf courses.
You’ll find a variety of shops in Caleta’s centre and a popular market every Saturday morning. There’s also the Atlantico centre, home to the biggest supermarket in Caleta de Fuste, handy for self-catering and a great place to buy beach snacks. The centre also offers visitors a Spanish language cinema and amusement arcade, restaurants, designer shops and a bowling alley.
Restaurants and Bars
Costa Caleta features affordable Greek, English and Chinese restaurants as well as Mexican and Indian. As far as night life is concerned, there are loads of pubs and music bars. And resort-run family clubs provide entertainment for the children as well as regular Happy Hours.
Exploring by Car
Hire a car or jeep and explore the gorgeous island of Fuerteventura at your leisure. There are also good value local buses every 30 minutes.
