Fuerteventura Transport

Fuerteventura is around 100km in length and ranges in width from about 5km to 30km. This relatively small size means that it is possible to comfortably visit anywhere on the island and return to your base in the same day.

Buses or Guaguas

The bus services on Fuerteventura have changed quite a bit recently so we have decided to do a full page of information to cover this.

There are some sixteen different bus routes on the island. The buses run to time and are an excellent way to get around the island. It takes about 20 minutes to travel by bus from Caleta de Fuste to Puerto del Rosario, and the travel time from Puerto del Rosario to Corralejo is around 40 minutes.

Full details of the timetable can be reached by clicking on the bus to the right. This will take you to the bus company's website.

If you travel around on buses quite often you can get a discount card which gives a discount of 30% off each journey. It is available on all bus routes on the island.

The Bono BtF (Discount Bus Card) is a rechargeable plastic card which can be bought from the bus driver. The card costs 1 euro and then you can charge it up with any amount from 15 euros to 50 euros in amounts of 5 euros. The driver gives you a receipt for the amount as well.

The big advantage is that the card can be bought from the driver, which is useful to holidaymakers as you can get discounted travel straight away.

With the card you state your destination to the driver, and put your card on the sensor in front of the driver. Your card is then debited. The same card can be used by several people and is transferable.

Taxis

Taxi's are quite cheap on the island, but you must remember that you cannot order them in advance, nor can the taxi's pick up passengers outside their own area, eg a Puerto taxi cannot pick up in Caleta.

The table below shows the cost of a taxi to various places on Fuerteventura from Fuerteventura Airport.Prices are a guide as it will depend on your exact destination.

Travelling by Car

The roads linking the main population centres on the island are generally of a high quality. Some of them, such as that from Costa Antigua to the town of Antigua are very new and do not appear on most maps.

The islands probably has more miles of tracks than tarmacced surfaces. It is possible to negotiate a lot of them with care, but if you have taken the car hire option , then you should be aware that your insurance may not be valid if you are anywhere other than on a "proper" road.

Ferry Services

The ferries that run between Fuerteventura and some of the other islands are more about getting to or from the island. You can find the timetables by following the links to the right.

Trains

Trains?, what trains? The closest thing to a train on the island are the tourist trains like the one that travels up and down Chipmunk Mountain, and over to the Atlantico Centre, There is also a tourist train in Corralejo.

Camels

When the first intrepid tourists arrived on the island, going to Corralejo involved a six hour camel ride. In Caleta there are couple of camels that will take you there and back! You can also ride a camel at the La Lajita zoo.
