Fuerteventura Nightlife

Fuerteventura nightlife is relatively low key, compared to the other Canary Islands and resorts on mainland Spain.  There are nightclubs and bars to meet the needs of tourists and locals, but it hasn’t got a reputation for attracting large groups of late teenagers and twenties. The resorts of Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste and Jandia have the most night life aimed at tourists, and the capital of Puerto del Rosario has its own clubs and bars to attract local people.

There is one Casino on the island in Caleta de Fuste at the Carlota Hotel, which has all the usual features of a large casino and is open until 5am in the summer months and 4am in the winter months.

Fuerteventura nightlife in the resort’s bars is based on entertainment which seems to be aimed at English speakers, with UK sports being shown on TV, vocalists, karaoke, quizzes, race nights and other shows.

The hotels have their own nightly entertainment programmes, which usually start with a children’s disco at 8.30pm, followed by a show. These shows can be with professional artists or feature the hotel’s entertainment team, and it is common to see adapted shows of Grease, Les Miserables, Starlight Express etc.  They usually operate on a 2 weekly cycle of shows, so that anyone who stays for 14 days doesn’t see the same show twice.

Many people who are self catering, go out in the evening to local restaurants and bars, as there is so much choice available. Other people make the most of the good climate and have BBQ’s at their rented apartment or villa.

All bars and restaurants are child friendly, so it is acceptable to take children with you when enjoying nightlife, and they will offer child menus, a range of drinks and ice cream. Many bars are open until late, and some have licenses to open until the early hours.  

If you want to party like the locals, it would be a good idea to find out when one of the town or village fiestas is taking place, and this will be a special type of Fuerteventura nightlife.  They have traditional evening entertainment, and the local bands and groups will play and sing through to around 5am. It’s very similar during the Carnival events during February and March.

Fuerteventura Nightlife in the main resorts

  • In Corralejo, the main nightlife is based in and around the old town, where there are many bars and restaurants where late night open-air dining and drinking is popular.  The Atlantico Center has a range of bars and clubs which are open until the early hours, as is the Waikiki Beach Bar next to the beach.  Popular late night venues are Flicks Bar, Rock Island Bar, Caspers Lounge Bar, Blue Rock and The Talk Of The Town.
  • In Caleta de Fuste, the bars and restaurants are in the small commercial centres such as the Castillo Centro, C.C. El Castillo and Los Arcos, and there are a few late night venues such as Aloha Gardens, Alhambra, Pieros Music Cafe, Hemmingways and Legends 60’s Bar.
  • In Jandia the nightlife is centered in the commercial area fronting the promenade, with the Centro Commercial de Jandia being the focal point.

So there is plenty of Fuerteventura nightlife, but it is more limited than on the other Canary Islands.  But what can beat eating al fresco late at night, followed by drinks in an ideal climate, all the year round?  You may then want to go to a late night club or return to your hotel, apartment or villa.  I’m sure that you’ll always remember your holiday nights.
