Shopping Mall
“Las Rotondas centro commercial in Pto del Rosario is pretty much the largest shopping center in Fuerteventura. You have 4 floors with all kinds of shops where you can actually buy anything and everything. Just walking around and watching is a nice sensation. There are seats everywhere where you can watch people at ease. Of course you can also go hunting for bargains yourself.  Line bus 03 direction Pto. del Rosario stop Las Rotondas”

Natural Feature
“A pristine beach of nine kilometers in Fuerteventura. The beach of Sotavento is the most talked about beach on the island. Just the size of it, about nine kilometers long, make the visitors astonish. At low tide, the island gains so much ground that some locals doubt whether Tenerife is the largest island in the Canary Islands. The constant sun, the enormous pools that are created and the endless golden-yellow sand give the beach a paradisiacal appearance. A lot of windsurfing and kite surfing are available on this beach. Sotavento consists of five connected beaches: La Barca, Risco del Paso, Mirador, Malnombre and Los Canarios. A sandbar 100 to 300 meters away from the coast creates a lagoon of three kilometers in length.”
