Corralejo Nature Reserve and tour of the fishing village of Corralejo

The island of Fuerteventura is an appealing tourist destination appreciated world-over for its long beaches with their golden sand and clear, turquoise water, in addition to its rich gastronomy and an interesting range of cultural tours. Starting out from the port in Puerto del Rosario, in the east of the island, you can drive to one of the greatest attractions in Fuerteventura: the dunes of Corralejo, ideal for taking a walk, sunbathing and doing sports, and the fishing village, with a wide range of restaurants, cafés, shopping centres and shops.
From Puerto del Rosario to the Corralejo Dunes
23 minutes by car from the port in Puerto del Rosario and on the north-eastern coast of the island of Fuerteventura, we find Corralejo Dunes – a stretch of fine, golden sand that is 10.5 kilometres long and 2.5 kilometres wide. This protected nature area is home to 130 plant and bird species. You have to leave your car in a lay-by and walk over the dunes. We recommend taking a towel, water, sun cream, a swimsuit (there are nudist areas too), a kite and a board.
From Corralejo Dunes to Corralejo
Barely an 8-minute drive from the Corralejo Dunes Nature Reserve is the town of Corralejo – almost at the northernmost tip of Fuerteventura. Half a century ago, Corralejo was a fishing village with low, white houses. Now the town combines its fishing past with its present marked by beaches, the new port that connects it to the island of Lanzarote and a lively urban centre with restaurants and shopping centres. A mill from the old town remains in the Plaza de la Molina.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
