The Neilson tennis and cycling teams will put you through your paces on the tennis courts and show you the fantastic trails on a guided bike ride. And, for families, we also run two inclusive kids’ clubs, Mini Rippers and Surf Squad. Our partners Powered by Playitas run the fitness, hotel and hospitality side.

Windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing are available to book locally for a supplement. We’ll be relying on the knowledge and expertise of a local school to get the best from these activities. This allows us to react to changing conditions, travelling to the best beaches. Our local beach, also called La Pared, is a great place to learn to surf and the surf school is based here.

Back on shore, we have two tennis courts, a fleet of carbon road bikes, mountain bikes and a large choice of daily fitness and yoga classes. You can expect the usual high standard of inclusive coaching and guiding from the Neilson and Powered by Playitas teams.

Water Activities

people surfing at La Pared Beach in Fuerteventura


Fuerteventura, known as the ‘Hawaii of Europe’ in part because of its many surf spots with plenty of waves for all abilities, is a great place to come surfing. The beach at La Pared is great for both beginners and intermediate surfers. Just 400 meters from the beachclub, the long waves break gently over the sandbanks, making the beach good for beginners. When the swell gets up, it’s best for intermediate and advanced surfers with offshore winds common in the mornings.

Surf lessons are available as a supplement and include all equipment. Lessons run over 4 hours per day and are available to pre-book for one day (£45 per person), three days (£120 per person) or five days (£180 per person). Wellenkind, our onsite surf school provides the lessons. You may also travel to other beaches depending on the waves, tides and prevailing conditions.

Experienced surfers may rent a board from the surf school but must first complete a one-day refresher course. You won't be able to rent the kit until you have successfully attended the refresher course. If you have your own board, we recommend you bring it with you.

Windsurfing and kitesurfing

If you want to windsurf, kitesurf or wingfoil, we recommend heading to the Costa Calma area of the Jandia peninsula (just ten minutes' drive) an area renowned for its amazing white sand beaches, flat water and strong, consistent winds. It’s the perfect spot for freestyle, freeride, slalom and speed windsurfing and kitesurfing.

The credentials are impressive. Every year the bay hosts the Canarian Speed Championships and the official European ISWC Speed Championships, so if you want to blast on flat water, this is surely the place to be! We will use the knowledge and expertise of the René Egli Windsurf and Kitesurf school.

They can offer everything from taster sessions to beginner and intermediate lessons and even private tuition. All sessions are available for a supplement (subject to availability and wind conditions) and include equipment and coaching. The school is around ten minutes' drive and we can help you arrange a bus, car or taxi.

Children must be 8 years and above to join the windsurfing course and 15 years to join kitesurfing courses.

If you can already windsurf, wingfoil or kitesurf, you are welcome to bring your kit or rent kit from the various schools.

Land Activities

road cycling in Fuerteventura


Smooth roads, ocean views and varied off-road terrain make Fuerteventura a great location for a cycling holiday! You can ride through picturesque coastal towns, historic villages, small farmsteads, vast plains, lunar-type landscapes and undulating hillsides, nearly always with glimpses of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Fuerteventura enjoys a pleasant and stable climate. Mild winters and low rainfall make it the perfect location for cycling.

Away from the tourist trail, smooth roads with minimal traffic ensure road cyclists can make the most of the island. Jump on one of our guided mountain bike rides and you’ll get to experience and see close up the breath-taking volcanic trails that form vast swathes of the island. There are plenty of exciting routes just outside of La Pared for both beginners and pros.

Mountain bikes: Boardman Bikes MHT 8.8 in a range of sizes (small, medium, large, x-large)

Road bikes: Boardman Bikes SLR 8.9 in a range of sizes (x-small, small, medium, large, x-large)

If you've got cycling shoes with cleats and are planning on bringing them with you, we advise you should also bring your own pedals. That way, they are guaranteed to fit.

More on mountain biking and road cycling.


At La Pared, we have two AstroTurf tennis courts with inclusive coaching. The programme runs daily with free group sessions run by our expert team. Sessions are by ability (green, blue, red and black), so you will play and practice with others at a similar level. You can head to the courts during the day when coaching isn’t taking place for free play and you’ll also be able to join in with social tennis sessions organised by the coaches. Private lessons are available for a supplement (subject to availability). There’s also a multi-sports court.

We provide a selection of adult and child rackets from Wilson.

Wind and weather conditions

The Canary Islands get their fair share of strong winds, and Fuerteventura is no exception. The coast is a surfer's paradise year-round, with the Atlantic providing consistent swells through the winter months. On average, during the winter, the wind speed ranges between force 2-4.

Lying so close to Morocco and the Sahara, Fuerteventura is almost always warm, with sunshine most days. The daytime temperatures during the winter months average around 22-25 degrees, while the evenings can be quite cool.

Rest and relaxation

To truly unwind head to the free sauna and heated outdoor Jacuzzi - both are great to relax and recover after a day on the courts, bikes or water. There is also a treatment room where you can book a massage or physiotherapy session. Book and pay locally.

Food and drink

We include a daily breakfast of pastries, cereals, yoghurt and honey, cold meats, eggs, pancakes, fruit, freshly squeezed juices, tea and coffee to set you up for the day.

Half board is available for a supplement of £13 per adult per night and includes breakfast and evening meal (bottled water is included with evening meal only). Half board supplement for Christmas Day is £43pp and New Year's Eve is £50pp. Half board is free for children aged 2-6 years and £6.50 per night for ages 7-11).

Full board, including breakfast, lunch and evening meal is available for a supplement of £24.50 per adult per night (bottled water is included with meals). Full board supplement for Christmas Day is £54.50pp and New Year's Eve is £61.50pp. Full board is free for children aged 2-6 years and £12.75 per night for ages 7-11).

For your non-inclusive meals, there is a local restaurant overlooking the lovely bay of ‘La Bahia’ where you can enjoy freshly caught fish whilst watching the sunset. La Pared village has a few cafés and a small bar serving snacks and drinks. If you would rather stay at the resort, the poolside bar and restaurant also serve evening meals.


The spacious, modest rooms are in a style typical of the local area and simply furnished. They are located around the central pool area with balcony or terrace and sea, pool or garden views.

Our Club rooms have double or twin beds, suites have two rooms spread across two floors with 4 single beds (we can arrange two as a double). They also have a separate lounge area. One and two-bedroom apartments have double or twin beds and a separate lounge area with a small kitchenette.

All rooms have a shower over bath (rooms for those with limited mobility have a wet room only), fridge, TV, safe (charge) and hairdryer. There's free Wi-Fi in the public areas and most of the rooms. You can request beach towels from reception (€20 refundable deposit, €1.50 for a fresh towel).

You can requested late check from reception one day before departure (€25 until 2 pm or €40 until 6 pm).

Families and children

We have two fantastic kids’ clubs, where children will learn to surf, play tennis, have fun on the fitness deck, splash in the pool and enjoy outdoor games with other children and our activity leader.

Mini Rippers is for 6-10-year-olds and Surf Squad is for 11-13-year-olds, both clubs will be available for school holiday dates only (18 December - 5 January, 10 - 25 February and 29 March - 14 April). Make sure your children don't miss out. Pre-book before you go to secure a space in the club they want. Clubs may merge if we have limited numbers.

When not enjoying inclusive surf lessons in Mini Rippers or Surf Squad, children aged 5 years and above can (for a little extra) join additional lessons with the surf school on the sandy beach below La Pared. Those aged between 5 and 11 must be with a parent or guardian to enjoy the surf lessons.

Children who want to learn to windsurf or kitesurf can do so at the René Egli centre on the Costa Calma (10 minutes drive away). They must be 8 years and above to join the windsurfing course and 15 years to join kitesurfing courses.

Away from the beach, we will provide equipment suitable for children aged 8 and over so that they can join you on the tennis courts and bikes. Children aged 14 and over can join the adult teaching sessions.

The wild, beautiful beach is at the bottom of a track and steps cut into the rock face. Bear this in mind when travelling with young children or those with limited mobility. The sandy beach is perfect for sandcastle building and exploring (keep an eye out for the chipmunk-like squirrels who live on the beach), but not always suitable for swimming because of the waves and tides. If you hire a car to explore the island, you will find plenty of other beaches that are safe for swimming. One of the team can point you in the right direction. 

There’s also a good choice of rooms for families, including junior suites and one or two-bedroom bungalows.

Local area

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and sits just 100km from the coast of Morocco and is home to over 150 golden sandy beaches. UNESCO declared the island and its marine habitat a Biosphere reserve in 2009.

Our resort of La Pared is on the western side of the Jandia Peninsula in the south of Fuerteventura. The peninsula of Jandia was originally a separate island. The strait that separated the islands filled up many hundreds of years ago to form the Isthmus of La Pared (Isthmus meaning a narrow strip of land with sea on either side). This narrow strip of land is just 5km across and is the narrowest point on the island and separates the dramatic landscape of La Pared from the more touristy Costa Calma.

Fuerteventura is a fascinating and beautiful island, with so much more going for it than the beaches (although the beaches are pretty special).

Playa de Cofete This huge and entirely undeveloped beach on the southern tip of the island is simply beautiful, with impressive Atlantic rollers crashing onto the vast, empty beach of fine golden sand. An off-road track takes you to the beach. There are no facilities, so arrive and travel prepared.

Betancuria The Norman knight Jean de Bethencourt founded the ancient capital of Fuerteventura. Mountains surround this inland village. Its biggest attraction is Iglesia de Santa Maria, which was once the island’s cathedral. The whitewashed buildings with terracotta roofs surrounded by palm trees are beautiful examples of traditional architecture.

Morro Jable The vast beaches of Morro Jable, the southernmost tourist resort of Fuerteventura, are the perfect place to unwind. It is a popular tourist destination, yet maintains the spirit of a simple fishing village with some fantastic seafood restaurants along the beachfront and port.

Las Salinas The town of Salinas del Carmen on the shores of the Atlantic is home to several salt mines. Built-in 1910, they are the islands' only operational mines and extract salt from the ocean using traditional methods. Well worth a visit.
