    Awesome article!

    One of my best friends is getting married next year, more precisely in September. She is looking for a nice place to spend her honeymoon, and I am helping her:) The moment I saw Costa Calma on the video, I totally fell in love with this place. I will share this article with my friend. I am sure she will love it too! Do you think September would be a good time to spend a honeymoon in Costa Calma? I mean, will the place be crowded at that period of the year?

    Thank you for this beautiful post!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      This is a GREAT place for a honeymoon. No, it will not be crowded in September as that is not there busy time of year. Yet, it is quite lovely there during this time of year. She will have a wonderful time in Costa Calma. Thanks for visiting Beach Travel Destinations and reading my Costa Calma Vacation Guide!

    Hi! I really enjoyed reading your post. I am someone who loves searching for the best deals on flights, hotels, packages, etc. so I found it very interesting to know that there are better days and times to look. Do you think it’s always best to go with a package deal or does it mainly depend on where you are going?

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      It really depends.  I always check a package deal, and then I price the cost separately.  I find that sometimes a package deal is better, for instance going to Vegas using a package deal is much better than separating it all out.  So yes, sometimes it can work either way.  Best bet is to shop around.  Thanks for reading!

  3. Josh

    This is perfect! I’ve been trying to figure something out to surprise my wife with. We never got to take a honeymoon and I’ve been trying to surprise her. Thank you thank you thank you for making it easy because trust me, it has been rough. Not easy to find beaches this beautiful that aren’t slammed with tourists.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Well then this IS the place to go.  You will not find it crowded and the food and drinks are really super reasonable compared to other popular beach destinations.  I would definitely consider this the top of my list.  Thanks for visiting

  4. Weston

    Wow! Costa Calma sounds amazing! The temperature range is perfect. That’s what I like when I go on vacation. I don’t like it too cold or too hot, but warm enough to get into the water and relax on the beach.

    I appreciate the way you organized your guide. You provided everything I need to plan a vacation here. I’ll definitely keep this in mind when I plan my next vacation.

    How often do you travel to Costa Calma? What month would you recommend going?

    Thank you for this guide!


    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You are very welcome.  Sadly, I have visited just once, but it left a lasting impression.  Great place, great people and great beaches!  It really depends on what you want for weather, as to what month you go.  May thru August has the best weather all around, so during that time is when I would generally travel their.  I am glad you enjoyed reading about Costa Calma.  The Canary Islands have such wonderful beaches!

  5. mrsdehm

    I wanted to fall right in that water – the picture made it look so real! What a well-organized website, I found everything I was looking for. There was nothing that you missed from the tickets, room, car, hotel, gear for the trip, etc. It’s so hard to use multiple websites for all those topics, you made it so easy!! Thank you!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I am glad I can help.  My goal is to provide everything you need to get ready for your beach trip, where ever it may be 🙂  Thanks for visiting!

  6. Theresa

    Hello Leahrae
    I really love beach resorts myself and Spain is one of the countries I would love to visit in the future. I must say what a wonderful thought out written article. So many places to visit and so much to do. Thank you for writing about the various hotels and attractions. This is definitely one of the places I would like to visit in the future.

    All the best

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Thank you so much for visiting Theresa 🙂  It really is a beautiful place to visit for sure.  I am glad you enjoyed and hope when you are ready to book your trip, you will come back and visit!

    Hi!! You have no idea how much I’d like to go to a nice beach especially these days and looking at these beautiful beaches makes me want to go even more! I absolutely love Spain and the Canary Islands. I’ve been years ago and I found it gorgeous! Beautiful beaches and a lot of fun. I’d love to go back there and actually do a tour so I can visit also other beautiful spots around that area. Thank you for the great info!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Thank you so much for reading Fabiana!  As you can see, I do love beaches as well and I am glad you enjoyed reading!

  9. Steve

    Hello, Costa Calma is definitely on my list of places to see! This place looks so beautiful, and don’t even get me started on the weather, a high of 85 degrees! It sounds and looks like a very calming place, and you have provided so much wonderful information on nearby hotels, things to do, restaurants. Keep up the great work!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Thank you so much Steve, and yes I agree that Costa Calma is pretty much the ideal place for vacation with the weather, the beach, and of course everything there is to do. The Canary Islands have a wonderful charm that makes it a great beach destination!

  10. Castled Rook Official

    Thank you for making this! I’ve been saving up to take a nice vacation, and this place has been on my list, so I’m glad to see an article that contains all the information I’ll need in order to visit. It’s temping, also, should I take this opportunity to have a getaway with my wife, or would a family vacation be better! We’ll see! Thank you again. 🙂

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I am glad you enjoyed and the information can help you decide what type of vacation you would like to take in Costa Calma, Fuerteventura. It really has a little of something for everyone. Thanks for visiting Beach Travel Destinations.

  11. Craig

    Hi, this is a place I haven’t been to yet, the closest place I have visited is the adjacent island of Gran Canaria. Some of these resort hotels look superb. I had a great time in Gran Canaria but one thing spoiled it. We were constantly harassed with Timeshare agents. Do you know if Costa Calma has this problem? I think Timeshare is quite old-hat these days so I’d imagine it might be okay.
    Best, Craig

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      No, you will not find this in Costa Calma. Mostly the time share agents are in Gran Canaria and some parts of Tenerife (if you are at the popular beaches where the Time shares are). You would find a lot more peace here. I know too well how they can ruin your peace and tranquility.

  12. Alex

    Beautiful! Costa Calma is the next destination in my plans. I do have a yachting business in Rhodes island Greece operating from May-Oct.

    Usually after the season end’s me, friends, and colleagues take our sailing yachts (mine is a Jeanneau 51) and we travel around the Med.

    Our plans for our next adventure when is to go out from Gibraltar every “real sailor” out there, is to cross the Atlantic!

    So, eventually when this plan will get set, our first destination after getting out of Gibraltar is to head for Gran Canaria and of course..we will be on the beach of Costa Calma 😉

    So now that I discovered you website, I’ll make sure to save your url, because it will be Very useful for me and my team in the near future.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Sounds so exciting Alex! I am glad my site will be helpful for you…let me know if you need any other information. Thanks for reading 🙂

  13. keichenlaub

    Hello 🙂

    Thanks for the great travel tips!! I am adding this to my bucket list for sure. When I was in Spain studying abroad, I wanted to visit the Canary Islands so bad for a tropical getaway! Do you know if Spanish is the main language here? Or is there also a native language on the island? I want to be able to put my Spanish skills to use! Thanks again!:)


    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You will love the Canary Islands. Yes, Spanish is the main language. You will find, however, German spoken in a lot of establishments as there is a huge German population in the Canary Islands and they own a lot of the businesses.

  14. Angie

    OMG I totally wanna go on the 3 island cruise, buggy tour and oasis – love em! it looks so beautiful and warm! I love sea food so much! Thank you for such detailed article, very informative!
    One question:
    Do resorts have all in 1 packages (travel, food, accommodation) or single packages?

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, I would agree that you would not want to miss the 3 island cruise. Tenerife is another island definitely worth visiting and staying at. If you love seafood, you have to try the Octopus. It is abundant here, and so so wonderful! The resorts do have inclusive rates, but they do not include airfare or car rentals. Thanks for reading!

  15. Kristi

    Hi, thanks for a wonderful overview of Costa Calma! It looks like a wonderful place to visit! Do you know if there are any bicycle or walking/hiking available in the area? Are there any good places to shop or check out the local scene? Historical areas? How long would you suggest a person should go for to take in all there is to do? Thanks so much for a very informative article!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You are very welcome Kristi! Yes there are trails for biking, hiking/walking ranging from a 15 mile trail, all the way up to a 46 mile trail. You will not get bored with the trails. They are beautiful and abundant. In the heart of Costa Calma you will find unique shopping you can do, and with that you will find the local culture. There is also, a huge German culture here as well. There is really not a lot of historical sites right in Costa Calma, but I would not miss the Windmill Center in pretty much the middle of Fuerteventura Island. Personally, as I have been before for 3 weeks. I think that at least two weeks would allow you to explore the island of Fuerteventura and to visit some of the other islands while there. Thanks for reading about Costa Calma.

  16. Mattina Engel

    WOW! This sounds like a wonderful place and the temperature is just perfect, all year round!! I have never heard of this place. Where is it near? Thank you so much for the lovely description.
    I used to travel quite a bit and would like to get back into that and you have made some wonderful suggestions to make travelling to this Costa Calma smoother. Thank you for your suggestions on car rentals and things to do and including restaurants. Would you happen to know if there are any raw food restaurants here?
    Hotels were my trouble area not knowing where to go and which ones would be safe. Thank you for your knowledge in adding these places on here.
    I have now added another place to my bucket list.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I am glad you enjoyed. Costa Calma is on the island of Fuerteventura, which is part of the Canary Island off the West Coast of Africa. It is actually part of Spain though. Yes, there are raw food restaurants there. Lots of fresh seafood.
