Cruises from Puerto del Rosario
Puerto del Rosario is the capital of the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, Spain. It lies only 105 km from the African coast, and with its daily average of 8 hours of sunshine it makes an ideal stopover for cruise ships. The town is known for its whitewashed houses and open-air artworks, including giant snail sculptures along the harbor promenade. Head to the old town behind the promenade to find the majority of the shops, bars and restaurants.
The capital is making efforts to attract a few tourists. While there are no major attractions here, it's still worth a stroll and a lunch stop.
