From the airport, take the FV-2 main road south, following the signs for Morro Jable – it is well-signposted at the airport road exit. You will pass by Caleta de Fuste, Gran Tarajal and Oasis Park, before joining a new section of the Eje Norte-sur motorway (Autovia) that bypasses the centre of Costa Calma.
Continue straight ahead, following the signs to Morro Jable. You will pass exits for Mal Nombre and Butihondo / Esquinzo. The motorway ends and briefly becomes a 2-way road just north of the Jandia strip (Avenida del Saladar), where it becomes a dual carriageway. Motorists should exercise caution here as there are many pedestrian crossings, and pedestrians can appear to step out of nowhere.
At the end of the main strip, the road snakes uphill, past a petrol station, after which you should move into the left-hand lane to go into the centre of Morro Jable or continue in the right lane to go to the port of Morro Jable.
NB: Some roads in the centre of Morro Jable have recently been changed to one-way.
There is one bus route between the Airport and Morro Jable, which runs a few times a day. This is the number 10 bus that runs from Puerto del Rosario (timetable). The entire journey costs €9.70. Bear in mind that the buses run even less frequently on a Saturday and only twice a day on Sundays and public holidays.
There are plenty of taxis available from the airport, costing around €100 to Morro Jable. This is, by far, the most expensive option, but it’s an 80Km drive and taxis can only collect fares from the municipality they are registered in, so any taxi you get from the airport, will have to drive back empty.
Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen run frequent ferries between Morro Jable and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and some of those ferries also travel on to Tenerife after their initial stop in Las Palmas.
This does give you the option to fly into Gran Canaria or Tenerife and then out of Fuerteventura (or vice-versa).

By Airport Transfer
If you aren’t hiring a car, an Airport Transfer is by far the best option to get to Morro Jable. As taxis cost a considerable amount and direct buses are few and far between, booking a transfer will get you to your hotel without the waiting, lugging of suitcases or spending too much of your “holiday money” (an Airport Transfer costs less than €15 per person). You can also book a mini-van or private bus if you are a larger group. Click here for more information or to book.
