Fuerteventura’s favourite seaside spot of Corralejo is an energetic and effusive place that is guaranteed to provide an enriching experience; rise at dawn to enjoy the crashing waves of the inviting ocean and dance till dawn in one of the cosmopolitan clubs that crowd the main strip. Alternatively, those seeking a more somnolent sojourn set off in search of a secluded sand dune to spend the afternoon on. Internationally acclaimed restaurants are ubiquitous in both the charming Old Town and bustling modern heart, so gastronomes will not be disappointed by the fabulous Fuertaventuran food.
Just a 15 minute boat ride from the silken sands of Galera Beach lies an intriguing island home to some of the world’s most unique flora and fauna; a cauldron shaped volcano emerges from the centre of Los Lobos, providing refuge to the wild and wonderful animals that reside here. The crystal clear waters that surround the island are considered some of Europe’s best snorkelling spots due to the astounding array of marine life.
In Corralejo, the classic and the contemporary seamlessly combine in the charismatic Old Town and vibrant modern metropolis; a serene stroll around the island’s spiritual heart of the Old Quarter will afford wanderers a gentle insight into traditional cultures. Insouciant fisherman cast lines from the picturesque pier, and in the harbour authentic restaurants serve classic cuisine passed down through generations.
The excellent eatery of El Andaluz attracts rave reviews from gastronomes enjoying the fresh and fabulous flavours of its food. Inside, colourful cultural artefacts adorn the warms and the sprinkling of small tables gives the restaurant an intimate and inviting air. Delectable dishes burst with fresh herbs and vitamin enriched vegetables, and vegetarians will delight in the creamy filling of the restaurant’s signature leek pie.(Calle La Ballena 5, Corralejo)
