Fishing shacks on the islet of Lobos
What was once a luxurious refuge for seals has become one of the most attractive places to visit in Fuerteventura. To get to the islet of Lobos, in the north of Fuerteventura, you simply need to take a 20-minute boat ride across from Corralejo. From the jetty, a 10-minute walk will take you to the Puertito de Lobos, a small collection of white fishing shacks with blue doors, and the only populated part of this virgin island.
Natural pools and a restaurant beside the sea
Less than ten houses make up the centre of the only human settlement on the islet, venture further afield and the traces of humanity are almost non-existent on this wild, unspoilt islet. Puertito de Lobos is built in what is really a small paradise, where white sand and volcanic rock combine to form spectacular natural pools with crystal-clear, calm waters that are perfect for snorkelling or enjoying a family day out. After a dip there is nothing better than going for something to eat in the only restaurant in the village, with its amazing views over the small bay.
