Holidays in Corralejo

Holidays in Corralejo will introduce you to Fuerteventura’s largest resort and one that’s ideal for families, couples and friends. Situated on the northern coast, in a corner of the island renowned for its dazzling natural beauty, this popular resort is most famous for its sun-splashed beaches and stunning scenery. Book your holiday to Corralejo and you can expect miles of white-sanded beaches, wreathed by rugged volcanic outcrops.

In addition to being ideal for sun-seekers, the resort is a real surfer’s paradise and there’s a marina on hand for boat trips out to the island nature reserve. If you’re travelling with little ones, there’s plenty to see and do, from the speedy flumes at Baku Water Park, to the kid-friendly beaches and the first-class Oasis Park Zoo. 

20-27 °C

Even during the milder months, the temperature rarely dips below 20°C and there is little rainfall. In the summer season, the mercury shoots up to the mid-to-late 20s with plenty of sunshine.

 

Approximately four hours

Fuerteventura Airport (FUE) is the main international airport serving the resort and is little more than half an hour’s drive away.

What is included ?

The beaches are perfect for those who want an enviable tan, with plenty of space to stay all day and beach-side bars and restaurants. However, if you can bear to tear yourself away, hop on a ferry and visit the beautifully tranquil Lobos Island: a nature reserve just off the coast that has become a haven for seabirds and rare plant life. Alternatively, the whole family can get the free shuttle bus over to Fuerteventura’s most popular zoo.  

Beach lovers won’t be disappointed; the resort’s picture-perfect coastline is a curved sweep of silky sand, melting into the gently-sloping shore. The beach rarely feels crowded, and has good facilities and places to eat and drink within easy reach. Should you need a break from all that strenuous sunbathing, you’ll find that the beach has a few surprises up its sandy sleeve! One of the top water sports destinations on the island, you can also hire water skis, go diving or test your nerves and stamina with a spot of kite or wind-surfing. Head up to Corralejo’s harbour to plan a boat trip. 

Lobos Island, with its soaring volcano, lush forests and unique flora and fauna, has been protected as a nature reserve, for almost 30 years. If you want to see some of Fuerteventura’s most spectacular and wild scenery, grab a ferry from the harbour and you’ll be there in 15 minutes. However, there are longer boat trips available, with glass-bottomed hulls allowing you to peer at the submarine wildlife and even do a spot of snorkelling. Lobos Island is one of the best attractions in Corralejo for nature lovers and a fantastic day out for the whole family.  

If you’re on holiday with the kids, the best places to visit in Corralejo include Oasis Park: a huge zoo and park that has something for all ages. The children’s park has a mini farm for petting the animals, plus a big playground. The whole family can go and see sea-lions and birds of prey. One of the park’s biggest attractions is its camel reserve, where you can take a camel ride out into the park’s spectacular surroundings. The park provides a free bus service from hotels across Fuerteventura.

WEATHER AND CLIMATE

Temperature: 17-24 (°C)

The cooler months, between November and March, are beautiful times of the year to explore the resort’s famous natural attractions, particularly if you want to avoid the crowds. Expect plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the high-teens (°C). The weather heats up slightly from April through to October, with highs of around 27°C providing the perfect conditions for hitting the beach. Even during the winter months, there’s virtually no rainfall, making this beautiful part of Fuerteventura a superb holiday destination at any time of year.


GETTING AROUND

By car: Hiring a car is a convenient way to get around in Fuerteventura, particularly if you’re travelling with the family. The island has good roads and is small enough that you can get from one side to the other within a couple of hours. You’ll find international car hire companies at Fuerteventura Airport.

By bus: The buses in Fuerteventura are regular and affordable, and can whisk you into town or to neighbouring resorts at small cost. If you plan on using the buses regularly, you can buy discount travel cards from the drivers and save 30% on the cost of each trip.

By bike: Pedal power is the best way to soak up the scenery, at your own pace. The resort has good cycle paths, suitable for cyclists of all abilities. Keen pedal-pushers might like to head up into the mountains, while those who prefer things a little more leisurely can cycle along the promenade. There are plenty of bike rental shops to hire from.


EVENTS

Let’s go fly a kite: Fuerteventura is famous for its annual Kite Festival, a three-day event in November where the skies are a kaleidoscope of kites, from some of the best kite flyers in Europe. There are events for kids, and the festival rounds off with a fantastic firework display. 

Carnival: The biggest party of the year, Carnival arrives like a whirlwind in February for a week of dancing, parades, events and general festivities. The Canary Islands are a great place to experience Carnival, and Corralejo hosts Fuerteventura’s biggest celebrations.
