Horseshoe Bay in Fuerteventura, is an apartment complex on the north east coast of the island. Horseshoe Bay is also known as Las Caletas, which can cause confusion. The apartments are in an isolated position next to the main road, the FV-1, that links the capital of Puerto del Rosario and the northern resort of Corralejo. It is 12 km to Puerto del Rosario, 18 km to Corralejo and 25 km to the island’s airport at El Matorral. They are the only development situated on the coastal side of the main road in this part of the island, and are only 10 minutes from the Grandes Playas beaches and sand dunes just outside Corralejo. The apartments are located on the route of the Puerto del Rosario – Corralejo bus route, so generally have a service, in either direction, every 30 minutes.
The first phase was completed in 2003, and comprises of apartment blocks with apartments on the ground floor, first floor and second floor. All these apartments have two double bedrooms; underground secure parking and lifts to the solarium on the rooftop. There are two communal swimming pools and mature gardens. When they were first sold they were furnished and kitted out with all utensils so that people could buy and move into without having to buy anything. The asking price (in 2003) for these apartments, at Horseshoe Bay in Fuerteventura were: middle floor 104,000€, garden apartment 107,000€ and a top floor 110,600€.
After the first phase of apartments was completed, the second phase was built between the first phase and the main road. This phase, built in the same style, has 1, 2 and 3 bedroomed apartments and a communal pool.
I believe that these first two phases were part of a much larger development that was planned, but has never been completed. The nearest village to Horseshoe Bay in Fuerteventura is Parque Holandes, which is 3 km. to the north. Here, there is a small commercial centre with a supermarket.
Properties in this area are available to buy or rent, either short or long term, through local estate agents. So, if you are looking for an investment or holiday, in the sun, then these apartments may well suit you.
