Fuerteventura is situated 90km off the coast of Africa and is the second largest island of the Canary Islands archipelago after Tenerife. Approximately 110km long and 30km at its widest point, the center of the island is occupied by a plateau averaging 300m in height, flanked on the east and west sides by low ranges of hills. It is the least developed of the Canaries, with 40% of the Island declared a National Park. The landscape has little vegetation and has been likened to something like the planet Mars! At sunset the sleepy dunes are offset by stunning red, ochre and purple mountain landscapes transforming the view.
Corralejo started life as a fishing village and is now a modern tourist resort with accommodation, bars, restaurants and surf shops and a real “surfy” atmosphere. The town is based around a marina, where regular pleasure trips and ferries leave to Isla de Lobos and Lanzarote.
Fuerteventura is a large tourist destination in its own right and although it is slightly lacking in terms of culture, it certainly makes up for it with loads of sporting activities, beautiful landscapes and deserted golden beaches where you can find peace and tranquility. Fuerteventuras ability to offer a variety of conditions and locations throughout the year from top wave sailing spots to flat water slalom and bump and jump makes it a mecca for all you water addicts. We hope to see you there soon!
