Fuerteventura - What Else?


Apparently there is good snorkelling in Corralejo, the north of the island - so I was told on my way back by a fellow traveller. However, searching for tour providers, I found the advert of AquAVentura, snorkelling excursions, Caleta de Fuste which looks rather promising. It is close to the airport, and thus more in the middle and accessible for the north and the south half of the island. Could be worthwhile a shot the next time. At least the pictures give an impression what one can expect to see. Although be prepared of the cold water. The girl I was travelling with told me, that they were wearing two wetsuits on top of each other.

Wild Donkeys

When my mum came to Fuerteventura 18 years ago there were still big herds of wild donkeys, but these days she only knows of three of these guys in the area.

I wasn't fortunate enough to see them - and I love donkeys so much. However, I found some proof that they are still around and that they are walking the pathways which we use to get down to the beach.


Goats are very modest in their food requirements and are coping well with the scarce resources of the island. They are actually everywhere, but are hard to see as they are matching the landscape in colour and shape all too well.

In the picture are at least 6 goats - well, told you...

Pole sitting seems to be a common pastime

Cacti and Cochineal Lice

Fuerteventura was and to an extend still is the home of the cochineal lice which grow on certain cacti.

They get harvested with dustpan and brush and then processed to get hold of the red dye which is used for example to make Campari red.

Not sure if they changed that now - but better check the bottle.

Well, at least these little fellas had a nice and sunny life before they went into the cook pot
