Corralejo

With tourism booming on Fuerteventura, Corralejo, situated in the north, is one of the most popular resorts on the island.
More and more apartments are springing up each year to cope with the demand, and Corralejo which was once a small fishing village, has now grown into a lively colourful town.

Luckily, Corralejo has managed to retain its original charm and atmosphere, and there are still white sandy beaches in the town centre, where you can 'drop down' and soak up the Canarian sunshine.

Most of the shops, bars and restaurants are along the main street which leads right down through the music square and on to the harbour which looks across the other side of town and the sand dunes.

These dunes (which are a protected nature reserve) lie just beyond the town. The dunes spread for miles along the east coast and this is what makes Corralejo such a popular resort. See our gallery for more fantastic photographs.

No building work is allowed on this area with the exception of the two main hotels in the north, The Hotel Riu Palace and the Riu Oliva beach.

You can still find some of the original houses in the town, these are simple and quaint but most have now been transformed into shops and restaurants.

Corralejo caters for all ages and there's a wide variety of things to do, from watersports, tennis, Glass bottom boat trips, Ferry trips to Lanzarote, Jeep Safaris, Island tours, Mountainbiking, Motorbike tours etc..
