Corralejo

Corralejo is a city in the north of the Canary island of Fuerteventura. The place is a popular resort with many water sports facilities.

The area of Corralejo seems a little desert because the place is surrounded by sand dunes. The nature park El Jable lies inland close to Corralejo. The island of Los Lobos, a small volcanic island, is located directly north of Corralejo. On Los Lobos is a volcano of 120 meters high.

Corralejo is a place which has much to offer. Excellent beaches, a nice boardwalk, plenty of water sports, an interesting old center, harbor and easy access to Lanzarote and Los Lobos.

Corralejo is famous for its windsurfing. The coastline between Corralejo and Lanzarote, the Estrecho de la Bocaina, provides optimal surfing conditions. The wind which is forced through the channel takes care of these conditions. Apart from surfing, there is plenty of choice in other water sports. Diving is mainly done around Los Lobos. You can make trips on a catamaran or go fishing at sea. Also take a bike trip inland to the Cueva del Llano cave in Villaverde. This cave has an interesting collection of fossils. Near the cave is an information center where you can get an idea about the origin of the island and its geological diversity.

The Park Natural de Las Dunas is located south of Corralejo. This park is a protected area of 25 square kilometers. The area consists of long stretches of sand and dunes. The dunes are so called "walking" dunes, because the wind always moves them a few centimeters around.

Los Lobos is accessible by boat from Corralejo and has a total of six square kilometers. On the island are volcanic cones, dunes, salt marshes and beaches. On the island are more than 130 different plant species. Some of them such as Berol are even endemic. The cliffs on the north side of the island provide shelter to several species of seabirds.
