Visit Corralejo

Corralejo is in the north of the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Corralejo is one of the most popular resorts on Fuerteventura.

Visit Corralejo, Spain

Corralejo has grown from a small fishing village to a lively seaside resort whilst retaining much of its character. The town's main street leads towards the harbour and contains plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. The town itself is quite attractive with a mix of white buildings and buildings painted in earthy tones of terraccotta, ocre or a lemony yellow.

White, sandy beaches in the centre of the town ensure that it is a popular choice with tourists. From the beach you get great views out over the sea to the Island of Los Lobos - beautiful.

A little out from the centre is a protected area of sand dunes along the coastline. This area has a wilder look and with the turquoise sea is very attractive.

Whilst in Corralejo take advantage of the glass-bottomed boats to admire the marine-life. You can get ferries to Lanzarote and take tours of the island. You can also organise trips to view live volcanoes on nearby Lanzarote or go dolphin spotting.

Places to Visit Nearby

The Oasis de Los Camellos is an animal park and botanic garden and is good for a day out. It is in the village of La Lajita.

Puerto del Rosario is a working fishing town and perhaps the best place for shopping on Fuertventura.

Playa Blanca, a ferry trip away on Lanzarote is a pretty town and beach and worth a trip.
