. The area is frequented by a variety of tourists
and has numerous shops, boutiques, bars, cafes, and restaurants on or near the beaches. Here visitors will find many accommodations, apartment rental, and villa rental and vacation rental options located in and around Caleta de Fuste.
The town name "Castillo" stems from a tower (close to the harbor) which was built around 1740. The tower once acted as a deterrent against pirates and now forms part of an apartment resort boasting many lodging options
. Many traditional accommodations, vacation rental, villa rental and apartment rental choices are located within easy reach of Caleta de Fuste’s town center. There are many quiet tree-lined streets
and one of these leads to the man-made beach - set against a backdrop of hills.
The center of the town is the big beach bay with its light-colored sand, the yacht harbor and the town's high street with many restaurants, bars and shops. Since the town center is relatively young, there is no ancient old town. This young town still offers its visitors an abundance of vacation rentals, villa rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals filled with flair and Spanish charm.
In addition to beach activities, local recreation includes sailing, diving, windsurfing, and scuba exploration. The ocean waters in the area are known for dolphin and turtle populations

. Caleta de Fuste is separated into 3 areas with vacation rentals, villa rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals everywhere. Near the shopping center "Atlantico", a new area has developed. There are smaller beach sections to be found. The beach is a perfect place for children. Due to the protected bay, there are no high waves and the little ones can be untroubled while they play in the sand. The 18 hole golf course
is not far from here either. A second golf course is already under construction.
Caleta de Fuste's central location makes it easy to explore the rest of the island by car.
