Travel Inspirations - Corralejo

    The resort of Corralejo is situated north of Fuerteventura island. The heart of the town is centered around the old harbour, which was once used regularly by local fishermen. It is here, near the original and rustic part of town, that you can find the Playa la Clavellina beach, which is popular with tourists and locals alike. The area around the promenade is more modern and built up with numerous shops and lively nightlife venues. There is also a variety of bars and restaurants which cater for all tastes. The main attraction of Corralejo is the Parque natural de Corralejo, a short drive south of the town. Here, you will find large dunes of gorgeous white rippling sand and refreshing clear blue waters, a haven for wind and kite surfers. The small island of Isla de los Lobos, less than half an hour away on a ferry, is a great destination for a day trip. It is famous for its bird species and excellent surf spots. Alternatively, you can island hop from Corralejo to Playa Blanca in Lanzarote island with one of the two major ferry companies offering several departures daily. History Corralejo became a port in the 17th century and was prone to attack from pirates who wished to intercept exports and smuggle goods between Fuerteventura  and Lanzarote . In 1860, there were only 15 houses in the town of Corralejo and as late as 1950, only 190 residents cohabited here. In 1967 Belgian immigrants opened the first hotel in Corralejo and from then onwards it has gradually expanded into the touristic town that it is today. One of the main historical buildings, the Church of Our Lady of Carmen, was rebuilt in the 18th century. The church can be visited Thursday and Saturday at 19:30 and Sunday at 10:00 during mass. Culture The Fiesta of Our Lady of Carmen is held every July in honour of the town's patron saint. The saint is honoured to protect the sea and the fishermen. As part of the festivities, the Lady of Carmen’s statue is carried through the streets to the small wharf. She is afterwards placed on a boat, and the procession continues on the water, the locals take great pride in decking their boats with flowers in her honour. Economy Whilst the old part of Corralejo still focuses on fishing with many fishermen living in the town, the main trade is tourism. The island has warm weather all year round. Although business gets slightly quieter in the winter months, tourism remains fairly steady throughout the seasons. Agriculture is of course also part of the economic life in the north, with the production of cereals and vegetables being key to its wealth. How to get there By Bus: To get to Corralejo from Puerto del Rosario , the capital of Fuerteventura  island, you can take the number 06 Tiadhe bus. This runs every half hour from 07:00 until 23:00 Monday - Saturdays, and every hour from 07:00 - 22:00 on Sundays. From El Cotillo , you can take the number 08 Tiadhe bus which runs on the hour from 09:00 - 21:00 every day. By Ferry: From neighbouring Lanzarote  island, you can catch a ferry Playa Blanca to Corralejo. If you fancy island hopping, The Fred Olsen Express and Naviera Armas run between the islands 5-6 times daily. Note: it is cheaper to book your ferry tickets online. http://www.fredolsen.es http://www.navieraarmas.com
Sights Corralejo's main attraction is its stretch of fine sand dunes at the Natural Park of Corralejo on the east coast. The historic windmill is also worth a visit. Parque Natural de Corralejo (Natural Park) Here you can witness the beauty of the sand dunes, which are now a protected nature reserve. It is a perfect place for a leisurely stroll, relax in a sun lounger and catch some rays or even a swim. Whilst it gets windy enough to windsurf here, there is enough shelter along various parts of the beach to enjoy sunbathing without your towel flying away. Most hotels in Corralejo provide free shuttles to the dunes, but irregularly. Alternatively, you can drive, catch a taxi or take the Tiadhe bus number 6 towards Puerto del Rosario . For those going by bus, ask to be dropped off just before the Riu Hotel. There's a small shop by the road near the stop where you can stock up various essentials such as food, drinks and sun blocks. The Windmill of Juan Morera (Molina) The windmill was built in the 1940’s by Rafael del Toro using materials from the island of  Lanzarote . It has been named as a piece of much cultural interest and is worth going to see whilst in Corralejo. Museums There are no museums in Corralejo and if you wish to visit a museum you will need to travel to La Oliva (17km) or Puerto de Rosario (34km).
