Located in the north of the island of Fuerteventura and with less than 15.000 inhabitants, the village of Corralejo has been chosen by travellers around the world as one of the 10 emerging must-visit destinations for this 2014, together with exotic places such as Katmandu (Nepal), Fortaleza (Brasil) or Cayos de Belice.
Praised for its excellent beaches of white fine sand and its amazing volcanic landscapes, Corralejo is a classic destination for the European tourist and an authentic discovery for those who come from other continents: unconscious of the biodiversity of Fuerteventura, many people are surprised by the combination of the high volcanoes of black rocks with the turquoise water of the Atlantic ocean.
Unique waters which, caressed by the winds, offer an unbeatable setting for water sports lovers: windsurf, kite surf, sailing… Activities which, year after year, bring together in Fuerteventura thousands of amateurs who, season after season, come back to vibrate on the stunning waves.
But Corralejo is much more than beaches and surf, that is why it is one of the 10 top destinations this 2014: tradition, gastronomy, culture, craftsmanship, nature, geology, parties… Besides, its exceptional location, close at hand from Islote de Lobos and with perfect connections by boat with Lanzarote’s neighbouring island, makes this old fishing village an ideal place for getting away from it all and relaxing by the seashores.
Booking an accommodation in Lanzarote, taking the ferry and enjoying a complete day in this beautiful island of unique landscapes can be the perfect experience that crowns your trip to Corralejo.
Regarding tourism, the area features some of the best hotels in Fuerteventura, such as the Barceló Corralejo Bay, in the area of Grandes Playas, very close to the Natural Park of the Dunes of Corralejo. The complementary offer is also really varied and adapted to all type of travellers: families, couples with children, groups of friends, business…
A trip to Corralejo is also the perfect excuse to visit Fuerteventura. The island has really unique places, such as the peninsula of Jandia, one of the most beautiful beach areas of the Canary Islands: Jandia or Matorral beaches, Cofete beach, Morro Jable… Located on the south of the island, these beaches represent the naturist and family tourism par excellence, surrounded by the stunning Natural Park of Jandia, where we find the highest mountain in the island.
The area of Jandia is also one of the most recommended areas to find accommodation in Fuerteventura: hotels for children in Jandia, hotels with Adult Only areas close to Matorral beach or family hotels close at hand from Morro Jable are some of the most valued options due to their good quality price ratio and to the variety of services they offer to the traveller.
According to Tripadvisor’s users, Fuerteventura is a rising destination, an island to be visited at any time of the year and where to enjoy sport and relaxation at the same time, without giving up luxury plans such as savouring the excellent gastronomy of the Canary Islands, going through the 24 volcanoes of the island or visiting the main museums and art centres in Puerto del Rosario, the capital.
