You might have heard that Corralejo is a quaint former fishing village – but there’s plenty of hustle and bustle in this vibrant town. Sitting on the northeastern corner of Fuerteventura, the popular Canary Island beach resort has it all: broad, dune-backed sands, turquoise sea, cafés and bars, and masses of water-based activities to keep the whole family happy. Yet Corralejo holidays also retain an element of old-world charm, thanks to the old town’s cobbled streets and the fishermen’s cottages dotted around the harbour.
And while partygoers can dance the night away at an expansive selection of cocktail bars and clubs, there are traditional, laid-back Spanish bars and restaurants, too. But the area’s real allure is the seemingly endless stretch of white sand to the south of town. At Flag Beach, you’ll find some 10 kilometres of sweeping dunes, rolling down to fine sand. For sunbathing, surfing and much more, holidays to Corralejo are sure to delight families, friends and couples alike.
Get back to nature
Don’t miss Corralejo Natural Park – its protected dunes and beaches are a haven for endangered wildlife, and you can hike up the impressive (and dormant) Montana Roja volcano.
Catch some live music
Set up in Music Square and sip a cocktail or coffee while soaking up the live music that floats out from the surrounding bars and cafés.
Visit a tiny island
Grab your flippers and jump on the ferry from Corralejo to Lobos, a picture-perfect deserted island and protected nature reserve where the snorkelling is second to none.
