I'm keen to visit Fuerteventura in January with my husband and two young daughters (aged 1 and 2 years). We don't like big touristy resorts and lots of people but love beautiful, white sandy beaches and great food in little village restaurants. I've done quite a lot of research and like the look of El Cotillo, but I'd like to ask advice from those of you who know the island before I go any further - it's very difficult to get the full picture from holiday companies' websites!
My questions are:
1) Is the weather going to be warm enough in January for shorts/ t-shirts and buckets & spades on the beach with children?
2) Will it be too windy for buckets & spades anyway?!
3) Is El Cotillo a good choice or is there somewhere else you think would suit us better?
Thanks very much for your help,
PS Any accommodation recommendations are very welcome too... We normally prefer self catering villas or apartments so we're not all crammed in one bedroom but will consider hotels. Have heard heated swimming pools are a must at this time of year!
