If you want a totally relaxed, sun sea and sand holiday, Corralejo delivers in spades!

Fuerteventura is an island of contrasts. There are some of the most beautiful beaches in the Canaries, but the lava fields of the volcanic interior are more like the surface of the moon. You have the tranquillity of an endless swathe of sand dunes, protected as a nature reserve, as well as the bars, discos and karaoke of the main resorts. You can spend your holiday lazing by the pool at your villa, or soaking up the rays on a fabulous beach. Or you can have a really active holiday, trying out some of the many water sports on offer.
What makes Corralejo unique is the spectacular stretch of sand dunes, looking a lot like the Sahara. Spanning over 7 miles along the east coast, they are just beyond Corralejo town. They are the main reason the Parque Natural de Corralejo was set up in 1982, and are now protected from any building or development. From the dunes you have an excellent view of the islands of Lobos and Lanzarote. They are also great fun to run up and down!
The best way to explore the dramatic coastline of Fuerteventura is by boat. There are all kinds of trips on offer, but if you only do one, don’t miss taking a glass-bottomed boat over to the uninhabited volcanic island of Lobos, which has been an official nature reserve since 1982. There are secluded bays of soft sand and volcanic rocks where you can swim and snorkel, plus an interesting walk up to the lighthouse. Another great day out is a catamaran trip to Playa Blanca in Lanzarote docking at Rubicon Harbour, and returning via the stunning Papagayo beaches with enough time to have a swim.
Water sports are a very big deal in Fuerteventura and every July hundreds of surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers, and divers descend on the island for the P.W.A world windsurfing speed and slalom event at Sotavento in the south. All year round water babies flock to Corralejo, a famous surfing spot that draws windsurfers from all over the world. It is also an international centre for water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, kite surfing, diving, snorkelling and swimming. Even if you have never tried venturing under the water, there are plenty of places offering equipment and tuition to get you started.
How brave are you? Could you cope with chutes like the Black Hole? Or hurtle at 19mph down a multi-lane racer chute? Acua Waterpark is dare-devil heaven, plus there’s also a wave pool, a lazy river, and a couple of whirlpools. The park offers a gentler experience for tiny tots and those looking to relax. Younger children are also well catered for and can have fun splashing about in shallow waters, racing down animal-shaped slides and dancing under mushrooms.
When you set off from your villa for a day on the beach, you have a great choice! You are just going to have to find your personal favourite. In the town there is the smallest beach within a sheltered bay. Or if size matters, Flag Beach is the biggest, an endless expanse which is heaven for surfers and kite-boarders. In fact, Flag Beach is really three beaches that merge together - called Playa del Pozo, (most popular with naturists), Playa del Medanoand Playa de Viejo. In between there is the busy Galera Beach, which has its fair share of cafes and bars to keep you refreshed and hydrated, and a good range of water sports for the more adventurous.
The Oasis Wildlife Adventure, located in the south of the island, offers a great option for a family day out. Camel safari rides, interactive animal sessions and even a large enclosure with free flying birds are sure to be a hit with all ages. The zoo has a variety of animals, shows, a children's play area and a super gift shop. It's also home to Botanical Gardens and a wide selection of restaurants and snack bars are also available.

During the summer there is a flag system to show when it is safe to swim and there are lifeguards on the beach during busy periods. This beach is often used by the locals and is also popular with surfers.
The island delivers sunshine all year round but rarely becomes oppressively hot, although Fuerteventura enjoys an average of three thousand hours of sunshine a year. You are just 65 miles from the African coast, and gentle sea breezes give this island a perfect climate all the year round. No wonder so many of our customers return year after year!
