Map of Caleta de Fuste
El Castillo has a lot to offer in terms of shopping and entertainment. After Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste is perhaps the best place for holidaymakers who appreciate the nightlife. There are plenty of bars, pubs and nightclubs. There is no shortage of restaurants, especially on the main street. In addition, shopping centers like "Castillo" invite you to stroll and shop. Las Vegas Restaurant in El Castillo is our recommendation. Great price quality and more vegetables than average.

🌴🏖️ Natural beach Las Caletillas 🎣
Playa Natural de las Caletillas is a quiet beach where few people come and with enough space to enjoy the sun. Special circular stone walls ensure that you can lie in the shelter of the ever-present wind, it also gives you the private atmosphere as if it is your own place. Since there are no facilities on or at the beach, you can use the beach towels in the apartment. Trash bins are available on the beach. The beach is guaranteed to be quiet and you won't see large crowds of people. So nice and quiet. You can only reach this beach on foot. Walk in a northerly direction and follow the path along the garden center and you will automatically arrive at the entrance of the beach. (note: no nudist beach)

Via the coastal walking and cycling path you can walk within half an hour to the large beaches, marina and the center of Caleta de Fuste (2 km), along the way you will encounter many funny ground squirrels that are mainly supplied with peanuts by tourists. There is street lighting along the route so that you can still walk along the sea late at night.
