Fuerteventura Canary Islands
The scene: Some 60 miles off the coast of Morocco, the beaches at Fuerteventura feel like ocean-side outposts amid the island’s rocky desert. While popular with European tourists, Americans are few and far between.Best season: May–SeptemberWhat makes it great: Wind sweeps the shore day after day. No need to sit out when it shifts direction though, just drive to the other side of the island. Beginner tips: Flag Beach is one of the best spots for learners, but be wary of rocks that emerge at low tide. To get rad: Bring a small kite down to Sotavento to tackle gusty, side- and offshore winds and significant surf. What to do on no-wind days: Take a nap. Wind blows so consistently, you’ll be begging for a break.
