Corralejo
Travel Guide

Corralejo featuring boating, a coastal town and a bay or harbour

This traditional fishing village has evolved into a first-class resort with a promenade of charming cafés and restaurants.

Enjoy views of the shimmering ocean after exploring the mesmerizing sand dunes in Corralejo. The island’s largest resort town is home to a scenic waterfront area with bars and boutiques facing the ocean. It is also known for the Corralejo National Park, a protected sandy area several miles long.

Spend the afternoon exploring the serene dune region. Bring enough food and water for the trip, as it can be hot and there are few restaurants and shops. Just one or two hotels managed to build on the dunes before regulations limiting construction were passed. Traipse through the sandy area or rent a buggy to get around.

The dunes hug the coastline, which means you can cool down with an ocean swim after all that walking. Sunbathe on some of the town’s renowned sandy havens, such as Corralejo Beach, with pristine, white sand and warm, clear water. For a change of scenery, try a rockier beach area, with intriguing coastal features of jagged cliffs.

Many beaches offer views of Lobos Island, reachable via a short ferry ride from Corralejo Harbor. The island is entirely devoted to nature trails, so it is perfect for hikers. Walk around the whole island, spotting fascinating wildlife and plants, in 2 or 3 hours. Discover its old lighthouse and enjoy spectacular views of Fuerteventura and the ocean.

One of the town’s main draws is its consistent warm temperature with relative dryness year-round.

The local language is Spanish, although most bars and resorts have English-speaking staff to deal with the influx of vacationers.

Get a flight to Fuerteventura Airport, followed by a shuttle bus or taxi north for 25 miles (40 kilometers) to reach Corralejo. The journey should take under an hour. The town itself is just north of the Corralejo Dunes National Park. Rent a scooter or bike to get around the area.

The shining beacon of Fuerteventura, Corralejo is a beach haven with stunning scenic trails and dunes.
