Fuerteventura: The promised land

Playas de Corralejo

The beaches located within Corralejo Nature Park are unquestionably the most popular among tourists during their visit to Fuerteventura. In total, more than eight kilometres of protected land, gin-clear waters and fine golden sand are located just a stone's throw away from the famous dunes. A real treat.



The coast to the north of Corralejo is where you'll find the longest, best-equipped and most popular beaches. You can choose between El Medano, El Viejo and Bajo Negro, to name just a few. The moderate currents and the prevalent trade winds have made this part of ​​the island one of the most preferred among windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing aficionados.

What's more, El Médano beach is home to a famous water sports school.



The beach of El Burro plays host to the Corralejo International Kite Festival, which is usually held in early November. Don't miss this fascinating display of kites of all shapes and sizes that lights up the sky with a kaleidoscope of colours. 



Further south, the beaches are less busy and more pristine. You can still find tiny secluded coves away from the major tourist resorts. The FV-1 road will take you to the parking areas for these beaches. Remember that you're in a protected area and you can only park in authorised spaces. It's forbidden to park on the dunes.

Dunas de Corralejo

This is a breathtaking desert landscape, almost Saharan, with white sands and ever-moving dunes. Located in the extreme northeast of Fuerteventura, south of the town of Corralejo, these dunes stretching over eight kilometres are one of the most breathtaking natural features on the island.


Marvel at this ever-changing landscape, where the silent beauty is only pierced by travellers who decide to venture into its domain. The Nature Park also includes a small area of badlands and the Montaña Roja volcanic cone.

La Concha (Islote de Lobos)

La Concha is a stunning, secluded beach located on the island of Islote de Lobos. An absolute must-see, it stretches for three hundred metres along a sheltered coastline of fine white sand, crystal-clear waters and gentle waves. The seclusion of this unspoilt beach on an unpopulated island makes it even more fascinating and perfect for a refreshing dip at any time of the year.

What's more, its breathtaking volcanic landscape has hardly been touched by humans. The beach is popular among surfers and divers thanks to its exceptionally beautiful and diverse seabed. It is protected as a Marine Reserve, you have to be particularly careful when visiting the beach. Along with La Concha, the Islote de Lobos is home to the beaches La Arena and El Sobrado, as well as lots of small coves.

Bear in mind that these beaches do not have surveillance or a lifeguard station.



La Concha is by far the highlight most mentioned by visitors who decide to take the boat between Corralejo and Islote de Lobos, a protected nature area and designated a nature park since 1994. Operated by several companies, we recommend heading over first thing and returning in the afternoon, giving you enough time to leisurely explore the island.



The island has a five-kilometre network of walking trails that are perfectly signposted. Interestingly, the name 'Lobos' comes from the sea lions that used to plague the island.

The island only has a small camping area. To spend the night there, you must first request a permit from the Island Council of Fuerteventura.

El Puertito (Islote de Lobos)

Nobody lives on Islote de Lobos, which is one of its main attractions. You'll feel like an intrepid adventurer when exploring its barely fifteen square kilometres of surface. That said, you won't find much shade while walking around, so make sure you take a hat and a parasol to cope with the midday sun.


In addition to the beautiful beach of La Concha, Islote de Lobos also has a tiny harbour and a picture-postcard jetty where there's always a gathering of fishermen, diving and surfing fans, and intrepid tourists. Puertito de Lobos is definitely one of the most spectacular sights in this part of the island. Incredibly simple and naturally breathtaking, it forms a quirky natural pool with crystal-clear waters that are perfect for swimming and paddling.


As it's a natural harbour protected by rocks and reefs, its waters are wonderfully calm. Ideal for diving and snorkelling, El Puertito boasts a spectacular seabed brimming with kaleidoscopic fish that will make you feel like you're inside a natural aquarium.



There's only one small restaurant on the whole island, run by the children of the former lighthouse keeper, who years ago lived there with his parents. The views from the open windows of the restaurant are incredible. We definitely recommend the paella and the platter of fried fish, too. The restaurant only opens in the summer season, and you need to book a table in advance (phone number: 0034 928 879 653).

Fuerteventura, land of history and legends

Fuerteventura is a land of legends and history. To understand its origins, we need to go back thirty million years, when continuous underwater volcanic eruptions created the foundations of this stunning island. Seven million years later, the ground would begin to emerge. Time, erosion and trade winds would end up shaping this spectacular creation of Mother Nature. We still don't exactly know who the first inhabitants of the island were, or how they managed to get there. Some say that the first settlers of Fuerteventura were of Berber roots and that they called the island Mahon. This is the origin of the name 'majorero', by which Fuerteventura's inhabitants are known today. This is just one of a thousand stories that you will come across during your trip. You'll end up discovering them all.


Always friendly and ready for a chat, the islanders will tell you how on the Islote de Lobos (today a Natural Park), fifteenth-century seafarers were perplexed by the number of sea wolves that lived on the island. On Fuerteventura you'll learn how to decipher the traces of the past. Discover the inscriptions and engravings of the ancient settlers; the sprawling villas, characterful churches, lighthouses and windmills of colonial times; the modern open-air sculpture parks; the island's art galleries and culture; its festivals and theatrical performances; its pilgrimages, its fiestas, and much more. Fuerteventura, so much to experience.

Tour of the island's best beaches

The array of stunning stretches of coastline include Las Grandes Playas (La Oliva), Costa Calma, Butihondo and Matorral (Pájara), and Playa Blanca and Puerto Lajas (Puerto del Rosario).

Planning your trip

You can start preparing your trip to Fuerteventura right now. We've got all the information you'll ever need to make your stay on the so-called 'beach of the Canaries' simply perfect.



Do you prefer coast or inland? Choose the date of your trip according to what you want to do during your stay on the island. Even though Fuerteventura's climate is mild all year round and it's always a good time for outdoor activities, you may prefer to travel in the winter months if hiking is your thing and you consider yourself a nature lover. Meanwhile, from May to October, you'll be blessed with a perfect temperature to enjoy its spectacular beaches.


And make sure you get to see the famous Carnival! In La Oliva and Corralejo it is celebrated with performances by Canarian artists. In Puerto del Rosario the party lasts for more than ten days as musical theatre, water-going floats and dancing take over the streets of the capital. Travel during the months of February and March to soak up the frenzied passion of these fiestas. If you want to discover Fuerteventura at the best price, head there in low season. Prices tend to go up on specific dates such as Christmas, Carnival, Easter, Spanish public holidays, and in the summer months.



Besides your official ID or passport, essential for travelling, don't forget your driving licence if you plan to rent a car, and your Spanish or European health card. Young people, students and pensioners can also benefit from discounts on public transport, museum tickets and other tourist attractions. The ISIC International Student Card, the Euro 25 and the GO 25 will give you a whole host of discounts.



Remember that the Canary Islands are one hour behind mainland Spain. Like in the rest of the country, clocks go forward one hour on the last Sunday in March and back on the last Sunday in October

There are flights from mainland Spain and major European cities. Most visitors use this mode of transport. Fuerteventura International Airport, located five kilometres from the capital, Puerto del Rosario, connects the island with several cities in Spain, as well as more than thirty destinations across Europe. Recently refurbished and extended, this airport has a 1,200-space car park, pharmacies, restaurants, newsagents, gift stores, boutiques, wine stores and tobacconists, as well as outdoor areas for smokers.



There are ferries from the Spanish mainland (Cádiz), Portugal, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Lanzarote (Playa Blanca) and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This is the perfect option for sea lovers and car drivers, as well as for people who prefer not to travel by plane. Ferry companies operate in the ports of Morro Jable, Corralejo and Puerto del Rosario. What's more, some cruise ships also call at the island's ports. Naviera Armas, Fred Olsen and Acciona (formerly Trasmediterránea) are the three companies that make these crossings.

The island's incredible natural beauty has led to a surge in characterful rural hotels, ideal for visitors looking for relaxing stays or for lovers of hiking, nature and traditions. There are also some excellent hotels and impressive resort complexes along the coast of Fuerteventura.


Make sure to check whether your stay at the hotel includes breakfast. If it does, it will tend to be a buffet with a wide variety of cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, yoghurt, fruits, juices, breads and pastries. Most hotels also serve breakfasts with eggs, sausage and bacon. What's more, they usually have local products and dishes on offer. Bon appétit!
