Corralejo is a resort town located on the northern tip of the island of Fuerteventura
, one of the Canary Islands
. The village faces the islet of Lobos and is in the municipality of La Oliva.
Corralejo remains a traditional Spanish fishing village; however tourism is now the primary industry. It is the largest holiday resort on the island and features villa rentals, apartment rentals and other forms of rental accommodation. The beaches in Corralejo are the major tourist attraction. There are 11 kilometers of sand outside of the village, as well as beaches among the smaller bays along the coast. In addition, there are several kilometers of sand dunes just outside of town, which have been designated as a nature preserve. The waters are clear and blue, but can be subjected to strong currents. The beaches of Corralejo are protected from these currents by a band of volcanic rock, making for pleasant swimming and relaxing.
Correlajo is accessible by car from any point on Fuerteventura. As well, there is bus service from the airport (Puerto del Rosario) and other major centers on the island. There is also regular ferry service from the port to Lanzarote
. The village is small enough to get around everywhere by walking, however there are many places that rent scooters and bicycles.
Correlajo is a lively and colourful town. There is a promenade along the waterfront lined with quaint cafes and restaurants, many of which occupy converted homes or villas. The village has a wide variety of accommodations available, from villa rentals to condo rentals. The promenade leads down to the music square and right out into white sandy beaches and the harbor. The dunes are very popular with tourists. They provide for miles of unspoiled nature and fantastic beaches.
There is much to do in and around the town – from enjoying the beaches and dunes, watersports, tennis and walking, there are also glass bottom boat tours, the ferry to Lanzarote, mountain biking and island tours. In addition, Corralejo is home to the CD Corralejo soccer team. All of these activities are easily accessible from most accommodations.
