Fuerteventura, the "Calm Island", distinguishes itself by the beauty of its stark landscape and a coast that is almost entirely lined with white-sand beaches running down to turquoise waters. The island's pleasant climate, its perpetual, moderate winds and the calmness of the sea make its shores an ideal spot to enjoy water sports: diving, sailing and, most of all, windsurfing. After all, it is here that the Windsurfing World Championships are held every year in July and August.
