Travel by boat to the island of the sea lions
A day trip to the Islet of Lobos is a guarantee of tranquillity, crystal-clear waters and incredibly beautiful volcanic landscapes. This islet, which takes its name from the sea lions and seals which lived along its coast until recently, doesn’t offer much to do – 4.5 square kilometres, 127 metres high, and not a single road. Just 15 minutes by boat from the extreme northern part of Fuerteventura, its valuable landscapes and natural fauna and flora have seen it be declared a Natural Park.
Snorkelling and rambling on the Isle of Lobos
To get to this island of volcanic rock and white sand you have to take a small ferry from the port of Corralejo, in Fuerteventura. From the boat you can see the incredible clarity of the turquoise waters, perfect for snorkelling, and you can easily imagine the quality of the fresh fish they serve in the small village of Puertito de Lobos. There are a number of walks and trails to choose from, which allow you visit the perfect volcanic cone of La Montaña crater, the secluded La Calera beach or the emblematic Lobos lighthouse.
