Fuerteventura is the oldest of the Canary Islands. Of volcanic origin, its azure ocean and gorgeous, endless sandy beaches are most impressive. The inland landscape also leaves a lasting impression.
The tourist destinations are Jandía in the south, Costa Calma and Corralejo in the north. During your Erasmus internship on Fuerteventura you have many options: On the one hand you can lay on the beaches with lots of other tourists and enjoy the sunshine, on the other hand you can easily find a lonely beach to set your mind free of stress. Whether in the high sandy dunes of Corralejo in north of Fuerteventura or on a southern beach stretching for miles and miles, everybody can find their own paradise.
The Oasis Park near Costa Calma is a popular tourist attraction, which appeals with a zoo, animal shows, a botanic garden, and camel safari. The zoo hosts more than 250 animal species.
Special attractions are the animal shows. When visiting the parrots show you can admire the artistic capabilities of them, as well as the aerial acrobatics of the birds of prey. If you want to get closer, you can pet some animals in the reptilian and sea lion show. The Oasis Park offers a wonderful view on Fuerteventura.
If you like nature, fauna and flora, you should definitely visit the Oasis Park!
