Costa Caleta Holidays
Sitting on the east coast of Fuerteventura, Costa Caleta was purpose built in the late 60s to provide the ultimate beach holiday destination for tourists. For this reason, everything is convenient, accessible and safe and that includes the man made horseshoe shaped beach designed to shield sunbathers from the strong Sahara winds and make the waters beautifully calm for bathers. With a great selection of cheap deals on All Inclusive Costa Caleta holidays, now’s the perfect time for you to head off on a great beach getaway.
The Canary Islands get a lot of their heat from sweeping winds from the Sahara. In the summer months, the temperatures in Costa Caleta are around 26°C but can get higher. The winter temperatures drop slightly to the late teens.
Fuerteventura Airport is located near the town El Matorral which is approximately 8km from Costa Caleta.
Book a holiday to Costa Caleta with Airtours and fill your days with as much or as little as you want. Long, balmy days on the sun-kissed beaches can be exchanged for a morning learning adrenaline pumping windsurfing. Fuerteventura has so much to see and do, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Imagine spending the day cruising through the crystal blue seas in a glass bottom boat and spotting all manner of fish from stingrays, tuna, barracuda and even dolphins. There are many cruises around Fuerteventura and they’re ideal for those with or without sea legs. Take a short trip over to the secluded Isla de los Lobos for a change of scenery or even pop over to the neighbouring island of Lanzarote to see the lunar landscapes of Timanfaya National Park.
For an escape from the beach, a trip to the Oasis Park in La Lajita, near Las Palmas, will be just the ticket especially for little ones who love animals. This fantastic zoo and botanical park has hundreds of animals from big cats and elephants to reptiles and monkeys, and also puts on various demonstrations and animal experiences throughout the day including sea lion performances and camel rides. The facilities at the park are great with a choice of restaurants and shops, good accessibility and the option to rent mobility scooters
