  • Small island without a tree, one bar and restaurant in the small village of fishermen (maximum 10 houses). He must stay on the paths not paved as protected site. Take precautions: good shoes, bring water (hot) and a head covering. On the island 3 options: around the island between 2 to 3 hours walk. The ascent of the volcano (attention good shoes) because the descent is slippery on the stones, but the Nice Summit view on Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Coolest swimming on beautiful beach Atlantic side or near the village (little water 1 m to 1 m 50) but color white sand bottom with beautiful water and fish. For lovers of nature to the condition of being with not a lot of people...

  • Only 15 minutes by boat from Corralejo, this is a little delight. Take plenty of water and a picnic because facilities are really limited. There are nice toilets - and if you are there for the day, th...  more »
  • Feel free to go for the whole day to circumnavigate the island and enjoy the beach! Frame exotic and Lunar, for lovers of nature. Better predict sneakers or hiking shoes, the roads are not paved. Friendly beach, with possibility of snorkeling. Good to know, there is no shadow on the island, except for the one made by the lighthouse, and no trade except for the restaurant.

  • We went for a day trip walking the island, you need a good pair of walking shoes the terrain is not for flip flops..
  • Best view!
  • Beautiful islet, which has beaches, pools, trails, Lighthouse, visitor centre and a small museum about the history of the place. Access is through one of the various ferries connecting Fuerteventura with islet, at different times. It is worth spending the day to revel in the views and crystal clear waters.

  • The Isla de Lobos is a small island to 20 min ferry ride from Fuerteventura. Ideal for day excursion (advise go early, the first ferry from 10 am, and again after eating). Ferry tickets are available at the port of Corralejo (costs € 15 return). There is a shadow on all the island and after a few hours, one is sick (I say this from experience). What I did, and I recommend, is to catch the ferry from 10 am, take the morning on the beach of la concha, eat at the restaurant on the p.m. shift, walking some trails that are to see a little islet and catch the return ferry to 16 h. There on the island of wolves can:-go to the beach of la Concha (the best from there). The water is clear blue. -Hiking (there are several routes. Give it back to the island are 2-3hours). Wear appropriate shoes. -relax in small coves, near the restaurant. In the afternoon the tide and there is no sand. There is only a restaurant on the island, "Antonito, lighthouse keepers". It is very cheap and very good, with views to the sea. You can only eat paella (€7 ration) or fresh fish (€9 the dish). It is time to choose dish at the time of booking (have to make their forecasts). I advise to go fast to reserve a table, nothing more arrive. We took the ferry from 10 am and as soon as we arrived, we went to the restaurant to book. People also know it and then go to book, so it is is tail. If you arrive by ferry from the 11th or 12th, most likely already not have a table. Also people carry refrigerators to eat there in the beaches/bays, although I advise to eat in the restaurant (good and cheap) and be 1 hour resting without sun. * bring cream, sunglasses, hat and water. There is no any shade (there are only 2 interpretation centres are filled with people at the half-day to eat and shelter from the Sun). There is water and soft drinks vending machine *
