Parque Natural de Corralejo, Corralejo

4.8
#1 of 915 in Wildlife in Spain
On a visit to Parque Natural de Corralejo, a protected area of sandy dunes with surprising wildlife, hike through a desert-like environment to the beach. Blue posts that ribbon through the park mark the main pathway. It leads you over 3 km (2 mi) to the Riu Hotels, which house visitors to the park and nearby beach. Stray from this path to climb the sands, keeping your eyes open for geckos and sand snails crawling along. Enjoy the view from the top of the dunes then descend to the beach on the other side. You'll find surfers, kite surfers, and a few bars. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen as there are no natural shaded areas. Our Corralejo trip maker app makes visiting Parque Natural de Corralejo and other Corralejo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful place to visit. Essential. Impressive contrast between the beach, the sea and the interior, more akin to the desert of the Sahara than to a place on the Spanish coast.

  • This really is such a lovely beach not crowded like you get in main land spain. White sand turquoise sea what more could you want. There are some sunbeds/umbrellas for hire at a cost of 18 euros for 4...  more »
  • It is a marvel of landscape... I loved the contrast of the white dunes with the turquoise sea. Each corner is spectacular, I recommend it 100%

  • So much sand! Like a safe desert. Worth walking of the beaten track and following you foot prints home. Careful with dji drones here.... Signal black spots. Inav works fine.
  • Magnificent... Sand desert in all its beauty.
  • Where the sandy desert joins the ocean. Nicest sand dunes in Fuerteventura with views on Isla de Lobos. Take a moment and walk along the national park, enjoy the wilderness not (yet) destroyed by resorts and tourism infrastructure.
  • Amazing dunes! Perfect blue water and clean sand.
  • Awesome place. Obviously full of people
