Sector 2 project is located in the centre of the island of Fuerteventura, in the touristic town of Caleta de Fuste, one of the most tourist centres of the island. It’s ideally situated due to several factors. In the first place, due to the strategic location of Caleta de Fuste, located less than 10 minutes by car from the Fuerteventura airport; and at the same distance from the sites of interest in the north and south of the island. Second because the plot of Sector 2 is located on the beachfront, offering great views of the Atlantic Ocean. Los Geranios Suites&Spa **** and Sheraton Fuerteventura Beach, Golf&Spa Resort ***** hotels are located near the plot. Finally, the plot of the project borders the Fuerteventura Golf Club golf course and is located a few kilometres from the Salinas de Antigua Golf Club course; Caleta de Fuste being the largest golf centre in Fuerteventura.
Situation of the project
Caleta de Fuste, the largest golf centre in Fuerteventura
Caleta de Fuste is the largest golf centre on the island of Fuerteventura and offers ideal conditions for lovers of this sport as it has two large golf courses located in luxurious residential tourism developments and near high-level hotels (4* and 5*).
Fuerteventura Golf Club is the first 18-hole golf course in Fuerteventura, home to the Spanish Open in 2004. Located just 8 kilometres from the airport and integrated into the Hotel Elba Palace Golf *****, the more than one million half a square meter that make up its facilities, make it the largest green space on the island. Bunkers and natural obstacles add to the attractiveness of the game, with beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean. Designed by the renowned Juan Catarineu, it is the perfect place to meet the needs of players who want to enjoy a perfect golf vacation.
Golf Club Salinasde Antigua, an 18-hole course designed by two-time world champion Manolo Piñeiro, is a reference in the golf courses of the Canary Islands and requires a strategic game. There are practically no architectural barriers that prevent you from enjoying the spectacular views towards the sea.
Caleta de Fuste has one of the largest commercial and leisure offers on the island, with the Atlantic Shopping Centre (a variety of shops, bars and restaurants, and modern Yelmo Cineplex cinemas), 2 golf courses, and a seafront promenade of several kilometres of length, a Marina with boat trips, and also pedestrian and commercial spaces. The harbour and the beach offer all kinds of sea activities: canoe, jet ski, diving, boat trips, submarine, diving school, windsurfing school, etc. The favourable climatic conditions of the island of Fuerteventura allow the practice of sports, among others golf. Surrounding its wide beach of El Castillo (perfect for practicing water sports with total security since it is very well protected), the Barceló and Eurostar Las Salinas hotels are located, while, to the south of this beach, a few hundred meters away, there are 4 interesting artificial beaches very protected by reefs, where the hotels of the Elba Chain and the Sheraton Fuerteventura are located.
The touristic centre of Caleta de Fuste is characterized for being a mixed area planned by the planning of indistinct form, that is to say, it is allowed in a same plot as much the tourist use as the residential, reason why the mixture of use is not differentiated by areas, but coexist together. In addition, there are processes of reconversion of non-hotel tourist establishments to residential use.
