Corralejo is a much loved resort that attracts families with its sandy beaches, the young at heart for the party lifestyle and the adventurous spirits who want to ride the waves. It sits on the northern tip of Fuerteventura looking towards the neighbouring island of Lanzarote and boats sail regularly back and forth. Along the waterfront, you’ll find a choice of restaurants serving the catch of the day. A long golden stretch of sand leads along the coast with views towards Lobos Island. Further into the resort, a lively street of bars and nightclubs keeps the party going after dark. Take a trip to the nearby giant sand dunes just outside Corralejo or visit further inland to see the lunar like volcanic landscape. The excellent climate means you can enjoy a villa holiday in Corralejo year round.
Local Markets and Shopping
Corralejo has plenty for keen shoppers, from boutiques where local craft people sell their products to large shopping malls, Las Palmeras and El Campanario - both of which have high street brands. To stock your villa, there are supermarkets and mini markets in the resort centre. Pay a visit to a local market at the top of the main street on Tuesdays and Fridays but be sure to get there early as it gets very popular later in the day.
