Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Betancuria, Canary Islands your home away from home

Holidaymakers looking for an island getaway in the sun but away from hoards of other tourists may like to try Betancuria.

Here visitors will find numerous different places to stay including self catering accommodation, villas and apartments.

Things to do on holiday to Betancuria, Canary Islands

The nearest beach to Betancuria is the fishing village of Ajuy or a little further away on the east coast is Caleta de Fuste, which is about a 35 minute drive away. The beaches are ideal for sunbathing and building sandcastles. The sea is ok to swim in but visitors need to be a little careful as the waves can get quite big. There are plenty of watersports to try on the coast such as wind surfing, sailing and fishing. There is one 18-hole golf course on the island at the popular resort of Caleta de Fuste. Another way to get about is by taking one of several boat excursions including one on a glass bottomed boat. There are just a few bars and restaurants in Betancuria, which is a fairly quiet resort away from the coast. Self catering holidaymakers will be able to purchase food and drink from the local stores and markets. There are also a handful of shops selling gifts and souvenirs.

                                                              A beautiful tranquil spot in a lovely part of the island.

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The house is in a very special part of the island, deep in the National Park. The views are fabulous and the outside spaces are wonderful. It's relatively remote. It is very clean and the owner is helpful and attentive, even leaving fresh goats' milk and eggs on the doorstep. The larger supermarkets and restaurants are some distance away in the busier areas. Life is simple here and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who values that and enjoys being amongst the mountain scenery.

                                                              Very nice villa with a big pool, quit and relaxing. For us it was also interesting to watch english TV. We spend a relaxing holiday with 3 of our children and we explored Fuerteventura from North to South. We will definitely recommand this villa.

                                                              Villa Piedra - rural gem

                                                              We stayed at the villa in March 2009 and found that all the other reviews were true to their word. The villa has everything you could possibly need and was very clean and comfortable. The location is very quiet, rural and relaxing, but only 15 minutes away from a main shopping area and good beaches. There are good eating places in the village and the local manager was very helpful and was easily approachable should she be required - not that we had any problems. We were slightly hesitant, as we had always used villa companies before and never booked a villa direct with the owners, but we found the web site easy to use. The owners were very quick to reply and were very helpful if we had any queries. This villa was absolutely perfect in every way and we could reccomend it to anyone who would like a 'get away from it all' holiday. Our compliments to the owners. Richard and Glynis
