Corralejo beach, sunbeds, umbrellas.

The popular town and resort of Corralejo is located on the northern tip of Fuerteventura /one of Canary islands/ and its white sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. This beautiful, serene place faces the island of Lanzarote to the northeast. To the east it is closer to the Isla de Los Lobos (Island of Wolves), a name referring to the sea lions (or “sea wolves”) in the area. The distance from Fuerteventura Airport (FUE) to Corralejo is about 28 km.

Corralejo has existed for most of its history as a humble and unimportant fishing village. With the arrival of tourism to the island, Corralejo has grown into a lively, colourful town, popular with water sports fans, who come for the windsurfing and kitesurfing. It is the most popular resort in Fuerteventura.

Despite its popularity the town has managed to retain its original atmosphere and is an appealing destination for those looking for a sunny beach holiday, with a fun.

Corralejo is Fuerteventura’s largest and busiest tourist resort. It is constantly growing, yet it has retained most of its charms as a fishing village. This old town is located adjacent to the harbour and has a town square and a church, now the centre of Corralejo’s nightlife. The community has a relaxed atmosphere and runs at a peaceful pace.

Main charms:

  • The long Playa Grande beach, seven miles long, and sand dunes to the south of town.
  • A bustling harbour from which to watch boats or take one’s own boating trip, including sailing, glass bottom boats, fishing, ferries to other islands and scuba diving. You can book your adventure online.
