Fuerteventura

Translating literally as 'strong wind', Fuerteventura is a world renowned destination for surfing, windsurfing, and kite surfing. However these are not the only sports available; as a volcanic island with a unique climate referred to as 'eternal spring', the island is fascinating to explore by foot and bike.

Activities

Famous for it's kitesurfing and surfing, the center in Fuerteventura specialises in these sports. Participants are split into groups based on ability and all are welcome, from complete beginners to experts. But it's not all about those sports! The island has an amazing array of landscapes which are incredibly unique to this archipelago. Discovering the island on mountain bikes or by trekking is a great way to explore what there is to offer.

Local Town

UCPA Fuerteventura is located in the small town of Costa Calma, a ten minute drive from Sotavento Lagoon, the famous kitesurfing area. 
The town is positioned at the beginning of the Jandia peninsula, aptly named 'calm coast', it provides one of the few sheltered coastal regions on the island - a perfect place to relax and escape the wind at the end of the day. 

UCPA Centre

Instead of having a purpose built UCPA centre, in Fuerteventura UCPA use the Royal Suite Hotel. The hotel is a 15 minute walk away from the beach and bars in the area. Rooms are 2-3 beds shared between guests (twin rooms are available, enquire directly with the centre.) The hotel is 2* and is a perfect spot to relax after a day of ​activity.

  • UCPA is a unique and brilliant experience, I would not describe it as a hotel but also not hostel it is somewhere in-between. Its a place where meeting people and making friends...
    Peter E
  • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level. 
    Amelia S
  • UCPAs are like an upmarket hostel. However, they are always comfortable and if you want to meet people, the rooms of 4-6 are a great way of doing so. Even better is most of the UCPAs have some twin rooms...
    Anna R
  • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.

  • Alongside the excellent equipment, lessons, food and accommodation, the thing that brings me back year on year is the atmosphere, as made by the people who go to UCPA.
