Situated on the northernmost tip of Fuerteventura, the resort of Corralejo is one of the most popular on the island. Once just a small fishing village, the centre of town retains much of its original charm. In recent years, however, the resort has spread significantly and the outlying areas are far less attractive. But the majority of sunlovers book flights to Corralejo for one main reason: its stunning beaches. There are a range of beaches easily accessible from the town, offering everything from sunbathing to watersports. The beaches are sheltered, and with such a large choice, holidaymakers can find a spot suited to most activities. The town beach is at the centre of the resort, flanked by an attractive promenade. This is the place to take a stroll, window shop, or stop for some lunch or supper on the waterfront. The harbour is also the place where ferries arrive from Lanzarote, full of daytrippers.
Flights to Corralejo arrive at Fuerteventura airport, from where it is just a 45 minute transfer to the resort.
