If you’re a nervous driver then you’re certainly better off booking an organised coach trip - the drive through the mountains is not for the faint hearted. It’s more than worth it though as Betancuria is simply breathtaking. There’s a picturesque town square with a...More

We visited Betancuria on our trip around the island. It was a pretty village but as had been massively hyped to us it felt a bit “Disney”. I would’ve liked more historical explanation, 30 minutes there was enough.

Lots to see and do. Visit the aloe Vera stall for an hour long sales pitch; religious artefacts in the church; several really decent restaurants and a couple of ancient water pumps. Well worth a visit.

Great travelling by car around Fuerteventura we stopped off right up in the mountains at was once the capital BETANCURIA. Met these guys on our travels. If you don't like heights this isn't for you. Worth a visit to the village though. 😎

Bentancuria was historically a very important town in Fuertaventura, but time and events downgraded it to a very pleasant small town/village. There is much history, including the cannons captured during the invasion. Well worth time to browse.

On an island lacking in attractive towns and villages, it was a delight to visit this sleepy spot which was surprisingly once the capital of Fuerteventura. A dazzling white church, a few restaurants/coffee shops, a museum and a couple of handicraft shops make up the...More
