the weather and the waves here in Fuerteventura have kept what the reputation of the island promises this winter. The "European Hawaii" has enchanted us so far with many powerful waves and sometimes midsummer temperatures.
Also at the risk that many people on the European mainland, especially in Northern and Central Europe, will now turn green with envy and turn up their noses angrily - yes, you can still travel to Fuerteventura.
The incidence figures of the Canary Islands and Fuerteventura continue to fluctuate between 50 and 60 new infections in 7 days per 100,000 inhabitants. In the meantime, there is a downward trend here and I am cautiously optimistic that the current travel warning from some European countries will be lifted in the coming weeks.
The number of new infections in the Canary Islands is already lower than in many countries in Europe.
The German travel warning is not a travel ban, the measures for hygiene and distance work better in many places in the Canary Islands than in some other countries in Europe.
In addition, as a “normal” tourist, most of the time you are out and about in more or less protected areas. For example: on the plane only with tested fellow travelers, in the restaurant with hygiene and distance rules and on the beach with sun, wind, salt water, which are probably the best natural disinfectants.
Anyone traveling to Fuerteventura does not have to be quarantined on site
So if you want to turn your back on the European continental weather, you can still travel to Fuerteventura. There are empty beaches, very good waves, summery weather and in contrast to many cities and countries on the mainland: open restaurants and shops.
You don't have to be in quarantine after entering the country!
A negative PCR test is required to enter Spain and the Canary Islands
Since November last year, everyone who travels to Spain has to show a negative PCR test. Of course, this also applies to the Canary Islands. The test must not be older than 72 hours upon arrival. There are now a number of test centers in all European cities. Not infrequently, former clubs and discos are now corona test centers.
Even if you fly from mainland Spain to the Canary Islands, you need a negative corona test, but a quick test is sufficient for these domestic flights.
Personally, I think this regulation is very good, because it not only protects the local population but also the tourists themselves. First of all, when you arrive in the plane.
Thanks to the test regulation when entering Spain and the Canary Islands, nobody has to be quarantined on site after entry.
