Fuerteventura is known as “the beach of the Canary Islands”. Its endless beaches of turquoise waters and white sand are considered the best in Europe. A paradise for enthusiasts of water sports like surfing, kitesurfing or windsurfing. It was precisely surfers – nomadic workers par excellence –, who put Fuerteventura on the remote workers’ map.
Fuerteventura. The island of beaches
With nearly 150 kilometres of heavenly beaches with golden sand and transparent waters, Fuerteventura is an idyllic island located in the east of the archipelago of the Canary Islands, with ample connectivity to Europe’s main cities. Highly-esteemed by sportspeople from all over the world, because of its excellent conditions for practising water sports, the island’s extraordinary climate, its long, sunny days and its complete range of activities and leisure options make Fuerteventura a paradise indeed for remote workers.
Riding the waves in Corralejo
Corralejo is the perfect place for remote working on Fuerteventura. Despite being a tourist resort, Corralejo is a quiet area with a large number of cafés and restaurants, as well as nightlife areas. The Grandes Playas de Corralejo, or big beaches of Corralejo, are a meeting place for surfers and kitesurfing fans, where the wind and the waves are the ideal afterwork activities in this Canarian paradise.
Enjoy the sunset in El Cotillo
El Cotillo is another of the most-visited places on the island, the perfect spot for installing a nomadic office. It is a small, very quiet fishing village located in the northeast of Fuerteventura, known for its wonderful beaches, such as La Concha, outstanding for its tranquillity and beauty. Its proximity to the village offers remote workers the opportunity to work from a terrace with views of Fuerteventura’s best sunsets.
Lose yourself on the beaches of Sotavento
Comprised of five beaches that you can walk along without interruption when the tide is out, the coast of Sotavento is a long stretch of white sand bathed by an ocean of turquoise waters. A shallow lagoon is formed here, as it is surrounded by a sand bar – perfect for windsurfers. Without a doubt, the best way to unwind on free days or at weekends.
What services does Fuerteventura offer remote workers
Aware that the remote worker segment is becoming increasingly relevant on the islands, Fuerteventura too has gradually adapted its services with the aim of ensuring remote tourists find everything they need during their stay, preparing spaces and effecting a notable increase in the number of coworking and coliving spaces available on the island.
Coworkings spaces on Fuerteventura
The north of the island is the most renowned place among remote workers, who like to combine the surfboard and the table of an apartment (or a coworking space) to work in. Maybe this is why the vast majority of its coworking spaces are found in the municipality of La Oliva.
Colivings en Fuerteventura
In the case of Fuerteventura, use of coliving spaces is combined with holiday rentals. This type of accommodation offers remote workers the autonomy and privacy demanded by some people, who seek the convenience of a residence in a part of the island that is best adapted to meet their needs. As with the coworking spaces, most of them are located in the north of the island, split between the municipalities of La Oliva and Lajares.
Cafeterias, bars and meeting places
The island of Fuerteventura is quiet during the day and lively at night. The place where travellers, sportspeople and remote nomads from all over the world meet up to enjoy the sun and the sea. And so it is no wonder that the island has a large number of cafeterias, bars and restaurants where one can enjoy a more relaxed meet-up at the end of the day.
