I have been there last year and only made a couple of shots from inside the terminal building. What I know is that you can make approach shots from outside the perimeter. I didn't have any trouble, but what I normally do at an unknown airport for myself, is going to the security department and ask if it is allowed to take pics without problems.
My experience is that they react very friendly and ask the name of the people you've spoken with. When somebody is asking you to leave is mentioning of the name most of the times enough to go on with our hobby.

I was in FUE in June of this year and it's a lovely island. Even though we were staying at the Barcelo in Caleta de Fuste which is under the flight path, I didn't go to the airport for photography because the number of movements were slow and sporadic.
I tended to relax on the beach with a beer and watch the arrivals come in over the beach.
I have a few photos from FUE on a.net although when I try to paste a link to them it messes up so you may want to use the search function if you fancy having a look
The ATR on approach was taken from Caleta beach, the HF A310 and DE 753 were taken from my hotel room and the rest taken from airside whilst waiting for my flight home.
Sorry I am unable to help much but I do know for sure there are places to shoot from, and if you have a car I would drive round the perimeter and follow your nose. I would also recommend dropping Dario (PMI based photog) an email, he has images on a.net from FUE and was very useful when I emailed him earlier this year on FUE.
