La Oliva is a charming little town on the island of Fuerteventura which boasts a rich history and culture for travellers to discover. It has some extraordinary architectural sites, many of which are hidden inside of centuries-old caves. As it is located in the middle of the island, La Oliva does not have any beaches of its own but a bus to the coast or the neighbouring town of Corralejo does not take very long.
Holidays to La Oliva are becoming increasingly popular and the region can be reached from most airports in the UK. There are many direct flights to the island’s main airport and La Oliva is just a simple transfer from there. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site to find holidays from your local airport. Direct flights to Fuerteventura tend to be around 4 hours.
La Oliva enjoys its busiest period during the summer. Temperatures tend to reach the mid 20s very consistently throughout these summer months and if you want to score a bargain, you can find that prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring even though the temperature still manages to reach the high teens. This off-season might be the ideal time to visit if you want to save a bit of cash and escape the cold of the UK! However, there are still some great deals to be found in the summer months too.
Due to its deep and fascinating history, one of the main tourist attractions in La Oliva is its beautiful church. It was built as a dedication to the Virgen de la Candelaria and is a focal point of the town, with the bell tower being visible from the whole surrounding area. Museums are another thing that should be on your to-do list when visiting the resort. The town has far more museums than your average small town and many of them focus around the history of the land and the history of royalty in the area.
The accommodation choices in La Oliva are fairly limited considering the fact that the resort doesn’t receive many tourists. Smaller bed & breakfasts and budget hotels are the more likely styles that you will come across in this town. Likewise, La Oliva doesn’t have many restaurants aside from the notable El Horro. For a greater selection of cuisine, it is worth venturing out to the nearby town of Corralejo.
