Shopping on Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura has a full range of shops, catering for the needs of those that live here as well as those that only visit from time to time.

One of the interesting features of the shops on Fuerteventura, is that they are sometimes designed in a way to cope with the climatic conditions. As it is often windy, and can sometimes be quite dusty, many of the shopping centres have unexpectedly small entrances. You can often enter a small doorway and find yourself in a large shopping centre.

Puerto del Rosario

The two main shopping streets in Puerto del Rosario are Leon y Castillo and Avd Juan de Betancourt. See the Puerto del Rosario map. Having said this it is worth a wander round Puerto as there are some interesting shops tucked away down the side streets. You need to bear in mind that the shops in Puerto tend to stick to the siesta closing times, being open in the morning and again in the late afternoon.The biggest shopping centre there is Las Rotundas, with many big name shops.

Corralejo

There are lots of shops on the main street of Corralejo. As is the case with the other resorts, shops tend to be located in the commercial centres that are dotted around the town. See the Corralejo map for the locations of some of the commercial centres. We are still developing this map. the latest shopping centre to open is Las Campanario

Caleta de Fuste

Besides the Atlantico Shopping Centre, where you might pop into on of the bars and restaurants there for refreshments, there are several smaller commercial centres dotted around the town. See Caleta Map . The shops include various jewellers and perfume shops, as well as gift shops, clothing retailers and electrical retailers.

Morro Jable

There are lots of shops along the main street in Morro Jable that cater for the needs of tourists. These are set back under a shaded walkway, and are a good option for getting out of the sun for a while. There are also a couple of commercial centres just off the main street. The old part of Morro Jable is much more congested, but has lots of shops that cater for the needs of residents.

Markets.

There are markets held in Corralejo, (Mondays and Fridays at the Baku waterpark). Caleta de Fuste (Saturday mornings) Jandia (Thursday) and Costa Calma (Sunday). All offer an interesting alternative to the shops.

Supermarkets

There are several supermarket chains that hav stores in Fuerteventura. The Netto chain is most prominent in the tourist area, and is related in some way to the Hiperdino stores, which are to be found away from the tourist areas and are generally cheaper. The Spar stores in Corralejo and the Atlantico Centre are used by tourists and locals and the Inspecasa chain have stores dotted around the island, including some in relatively small villages such as El mattoral and Lajares. The supermarkets in Caleta used to be quite expensive, but I find that at the moment the prices are quite reasonable.
