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 Clavelina 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 las Dunas, 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 Canary Islands themselves have been known as the “Fortunate Islands,” owing the name to their weather and natural environment. They consist of an archipelago of 7 islands, forming part of the large region of volcanic activity known as Macaronesia.
Fuerteventura is one of the largest and oldest islands in the archipelago, offering mild temperatures throughout the year, even during the winter months that are cold on the rest of the European continent. The natural environment of the island bears little evidence of alteration by humans with its pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear water, immense desert landscapes, and several craters that serve as living reminders of the island’s volcanic origins.
