Corralejo is on the north coast of Fuerteventura and is just a thirty minute drive from the airport in Puerto del Rosario. Corralejo offers a wide range of bars, restaurants, shops, amenities and leisure facilities whilst still retaining its beauty and original Canarian charm.
The old quarter of the town is delightful and it is here where you can wander through a labyrinth of streets leading to the harbour which has excellent tapas bars and restaurants offering a wide choice of cuisine and catering for all tastes and budgets.
The Baku Water Park is in the centre of town and offers a great day out for all the family. There is also ten pin bowling, mini golf and a twice weekly market.
There is a small sandy beach in the town which offers safe bathing and is popular with the locals.
Town Beach Main Street
Corralejo Harbour has two ferry ports (with regular trips to Lanzarote and the uninhabited island of Los Lobos), a marina and various excursion options with glass bottomed boats, deep sea fishing, jet ski hire etc.
Corralejo Carnival week is a spectacular event held in March every year. Every year there is a different theme, with fantastic costumes, floats and a main parade. Great fun to watch and to join in.
Parque Natural Area
Villadunas is situated in the 'Parque Natural' area of Corralejo, which is a protected area on the outskirts of town and is adjacent to the beautiful sand dunes. This area has panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Island of Los Lobos, Lanzarote and the mountains.
Beautiful Sunsets Island of Los Lobos
Fuerteventura is famous for its beautiful sandy beaches (152 in total) and crystal clear waters and there are many to choose from in and around the Corralejo area. Most of these beaches have sun beds and umbrella rental.
Flag beach, by the two main hotels is one of the best places to try water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. For the more experienced 'Glass beach' is recommended or for those that don't fancy anything too strenuous 'Drop beach' is a bit further along the main road.
The magnificent dunes lie just beyond the town and spread for miles along the east coast.
There is a new 9 hole par 3 course which is within walking distance from the villa (approximately 1.5km). The course is designed to test even the best golfers with three holes protected by water and large deep filled sandy bunkers spread around the course.
There are also two 18 hole championship golf courses at Caleta de Fuste which is an approximate 40 minute car drive away.
