Could Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands off the north coast of Africa, be where Star Wars fans will finally get a glimpse of Corellia, Han Solo’s home planet? It’s believed that location filming took place in the Costa Calma area of the island which boasts kilometres of white sand and calm turquoise waters – conditions that fit the bill for what we’ve heard of the fictional planet. According to the vacation-planning experts at The Travel Corporation Canada, Fuerteventura is the ideal sun destination for adrenaline junkies like Han Solo. With intense winds that regularly whip up waves measuring two metres, it’s heaven on earth for windsurfing and kite surfing.
