LOBOS ISLAND:

For the few that find life on Fuerteventura too hectic there is a refuge - Lobos.

Just a short boat ride away from Corralejo you'll find the Nature Reserve of Lobos almost church like in its peace and tranquillity. You'll have the wonderful view back to Fuerteventura and the chance to spot plants and birds not to be found anywhere else on the planet.

Above all, an experience of serenity and privilege awaits those that make the little effort required.
 

There are some small boats that do got to Lobos. They usually have one of the kiosks alongside the pedestrian zone of the Marina.

In days gone by Lobos was home to dense populations of seals - 'lobos del mar' (Sea Wolves) hence the island's name.
