Head to the quay
Towards the east of town, under a jutting headland, Tarajalejo quay is a great place to watch the world go by, accompanied by king-sized crabs scuttling between the rocks.
Take a dip
Grab your flippers, because the south coast of Fuerteventura is a playground for wonderful marine life, from colourful fish and starfish to spider crabs, sea cucumbers and moray eels.
Drive to town
A 15-minute drive inland will get you to Gran Tarajal, a picturesque town oozing old-world charm and boasting a busy harbour, shops, bars, restaurants and cultural events.
