Corralejo - Fuerteventura

Once a quiet fishing village community, Corralejo has developed into Fuerteventura's top resort popular with visitors from both UK and Europe looking for year round sunshine. The main attraction lies in its ten kilometre long white sandy beaches backed by spectacular dunes, which cover approximately twenty square kilometres and have been designated a protected area. These magnificent sands and beaches are popular with sun-worshippers, windsurfers/kitesurfers and naturists alike. The local beaches of Galera and Waikiki can be reached on foot or regular buses or taxis run to the edge of the dunes. Travel further into the dunes by bike, taxi or bus and a range of watersports including surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing are available .

Corralejo, FuerteventuraThere are also facilities for watersports in Corralejo itself available from the harbour area and the small beaches in town. Windsurfing and diving are popular and for land based activities the flat terrain around the resort lends itself to off-road cycling. There are number of boat excursions from the harbour including a trip to the uninhabited Isla de Los Lobos, which is designated as "protected" by the Parque Natural Las Dunas de Corralejo and situated just a few kilometres off the coast in the straits of Bocaina which run between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. Also Lanzarote is within very easy reach from Fuerteventura and only takes 35 minutes on the Fred Olsen fast ferry

The best shops are to be found in the old town by the port and along the Avenida del Generalisimo. There is also a market every Monday and Friday where goods of all sorts may be purchased from arts and crafts to fake designer labels.

Evenings in Corralejo are livelier than elsewhere on the island. The old town is the place for an atmospheric meal to the accompaniment of Spanish guitar music or for more up to date sounds there is a good selection of bars just off the main Avenida.
