Fuerteventura Maps and Orientation
(Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain)
The Spanish island of Fuerteventura is part of the Canary Islands (Las Islas Canarias), where it is the second-biggest of the Canaries, after only Tenerife
. Puerto del Rosario has long been the island capital and is really the only significant town on Fuerteventura that is not solely a tourist destination as such.
Located on the north-eastern coast of Fuerteventura, Puerto del Rosario has been the capital since 1860, being awarded this title thanks in no small part to its notable harbourside setting. This modern port town was previously known as Puerto de las Cabras.
