Corralejo in Fuerteventura

In Corralejo you travel primarily to experience the magnificent, mile long beaches. The dazzling white beach is a beautiful contrast to the crystal clear blue sea. Corralejo was originally a small fishing village. Today the city is a popular resort town, where surfers and beach lovers spend long days on the beach. You will quickly notice that the Spanish small-town atmosphere is still present in Corralejo. Here you can prance around the atmospheric streets in search of a suitable restaurant.

In the small harbor is the more pleasant and very good restaurants. Try the island's specialty, which is as well as fish and shellfish, the cabrito, a tasty dish made from goat meat. The supply of good restaurants, tapas bars and pavement cafes are great in the small town. Only 2.5 kilometers outside the small town you'll find the island's most beautiful beaches of white sand dunes. Foaming waves crash against the fine-grained sand that the wind has brought here from the Sahara. Corralejo has a small beach in town and several beaches in the edge of the northern part of Fuerteventura. The beach areas have plenty of space for everyone.

The days will likely be spendt on the beach and at sea, but Corralejo has a number of activities for those seeking respite from the sleepy beach life. Here you will find a dive center, and it is perfect conditions for windsurfing, surfing, kite surfing, boating and fishing. Fuerteventura is an island with lots of wind, and Europe's answer to Hawaii. In the afternoons and evenings, both surfers and explorers go to the cafes and bars in the port of Corralejo to enjoy the afternoon sun. Enjoy your visit to Fuerteventura!
