Near water; On an island
The oblong island of Fuerteventura (translated: 'very lucky') has a total area of 1,660 km² and is the second largest island of the Canary Islands. Altogether there are about 150 beaches in Fuerteventura, the most well-known being the beaches of Corralejo, Caleta de Fustes, Costa Calma and the peninsula. Corralejo is located in the northwestern part of Fuerteventura. This village is especially popular with water sports enthusiasts and sunbathers. In the center you will find several restaurants, bars and small bars. Off the coast of Corralejo there is the small island of Lobos, accessible by boat. Here you can enjoy diving or hiking. From the harbor there are ferries to the island of Lanzarote, which is also absolutely worthwhile. The water at Corralejo is highly esteemed because of its clarity and variety of fish species. These fish can be seen on a tour with a glass-bottom boat. The National Park of Las Dunas de Corralejo is a wonderful protected dune area with 20 kilometers of beautiful white beaches. In addition, the small modern Plaza de la Iglesia church is worth seeing. Near Corallejo there is a large water park for both young and old. Caleta de Fuste is also an ideal spot for diving and windsurfing. In the harbor you can rent diving and surfing equipment. Costa Calma is the modern part of the island. Here there are no historical artifacts - everything here is modern. One of the attractions is the Parque de los Camellos Zoo, a magnificent park with many exotic birds and mammals. The park offers attractions such as camel tours and parrot shows.
