Isle of Lobos

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.

- 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.
- 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'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
