About 10km south of the airport lies Caleta de Fuste - also known as Castillo, one of the major tourist towns on the island.
Like Corralejo, change is happening fast in Caleta with more buildings cropping up on every corner to help cope with the large amounts of tourists that descend on the island each year.
Caleta de Fuste has one long main street consisting of low-rise buildings where the main bars and restuarants are concentrated. The resort has also expanded inland so if you fancy sampling some of the nightlife but don't fancy the walk, then try to book an apartment closer to the town centre.
There are many quiet tree-lined streets and one of these leads to the the man-made beach - set against a back-drop of hills and a few apartments. The resort now boasts a new golf course that will have a club house restaurants, hotels, and many more facilities. At the Golf Course roundabout there's abrand new shopping complex with some fine shops and restaurants, a multi-screen cinema (the films are in spanish) plus a 10 pin bowling alley.
You are never short of things to do in Caleta de Fuste with all the usual watersports available as well as boat trips, diving,and even a submarine offering undersea excursions.
The nightlife is pretty varied too with plenty of bars offering all kinds of entertainment from live music to karaoke and a wide variety of restaurants including Chinese, Italian and authentic Spanish.
Because of Caleta's central location it's easy to explore the rest of the island if you hire a car.
