Parque Natural de Corralejo, Corralejo
(4.8/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Parque Natural de Corralejo and other attractions to your Corralejo trip itinerary using our Corralejo vacation route planner.

  • Beautiful place! We only spent around half an hour here as we arrived late in the afternoon! We had a quick paddle but with it being late and in December and a large area the water was a bit cold (Muc...  more »

  • The beaches along the dunes are absolutely stunning. Pictures really don't do them justice. Then a relatively short walk and across a road and there is nothing for miles except small bushes and sand. There are people friendly paths to walk along, or you can forge your own path into what feels like a desert.
  • To me this is the second best beach experience of the island - beaten only by Playa de Barlovento.
  • Great long white beaches and dunes, nice clear sea. Lots of space to walk and get away from people if you don't want to be in a crowded area.
  • Very pretty place with beautiful scenery, stunning beaches and very clear blue sea
  • Stunning sand dunes and scenery. Can get very windy so make sure you get there early to grab a stone shelter. Lovely clear sea too.
