Tree-lined streets, scenic promenades and golden beaches generate a serene ambiance in Costa de Antigua. Known for its tranquility, the town has a golf course, stretches of pristine sand and modern villas to accommodate vacationers. Constant changes, such as new hotels and restaurants, keep up with tourism demands.
Stroll along the central street to find the vast majority of the town’s restaurants and bars. Try local culinary treats of goat’s cheese, tapas and shellfish fresh from the ocean. The town has a community feel, as locals are on first-name terms with staff at the bakeries and grocery stores. In the center of town and nearby Caleta, find nightclubs where visitors party until the early hours.

The town is also known as Nuevo Horizonte and can be a more relaxing alternative to the lively neighboring town of Caleta. Walk along the 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) scenic coastal path to get to Caleta. Encounter squirrels along the way and capture the funny animals on camera. Try this romantic walk after the sun goes down, when the promenade is illuminated.
Locals speak Spanish, but resort staff should be competent in English. The resort town is very quiet and suits vacationers who are looking to relax. Stay at one of the many modern villas, apartments and hotel complexes.
Find Costa de Antigua on the east coast of the island, about 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) south of Fuerteventura Airport. Get a taxi to your hotel or apartment in the resort town, which should take only a few minutes.
With its scenic coastline and quaint streets, Costa de Antigua offers a glorious respite from noise and stress.
