We “moved” to Fuerteventura North on Wednesday and it did get to our hearts a little more than the South of the island. Our new home was in the popular Corralejo not far from all the action but far enough not to be noisy.
The building looked a little different from what we were expecting but the apartment is just incredible. Should be featured in an interior decor magazine.
It had everything we could possibly need and we were welcomed by the nicest host. As an added bonus we were able to check in early and check out late for free which meant we could enjoy the last day a little more by spending the morning at the beach.
We explored a few places during our days there…
Isla de Lobos
The ferry was not operating on the day so we got a water taxi to the island. It was just 15 minutes away from the port of Corralejo. It was a bumpy ride on the speed boat but quite an enjoyable one. A short walk away was an amazing beach with views to Fuerteventura.
Corralejo Sand Dunes
This was definitely one of the highlights of our time in Fuerteventura as we had never seen anything quite like this before.
La Concha in El Cotillo became our go to beach as it is so beautiful and really easy to get in the water. The North of Fuerteventura is known for the surf but this beach is as flat as a lake so it is perfect for swimming.
Not far from Corralejo through a bumpy road you can find this little gem. A beach full of popcorn shaped rocks.
Other Northern beaches
Well known for the surf these can be reached through the previously mentioned bumpy road and are worth the rough drive.
