Corralejo Description

Corralejo is Fuerteventura busiest and largest tourist resort, which is constantly growing in size, but still retaining many of it's original charms as a fishing village. The old town is located next to the harbour, and has a church and town square, now the centre of Corralejo's nightlife.

The overall atmosphere is relaxed and running at a calming pace.

Corralejo main charms are:

  • The 7 mile long Playa Grande beach and sand dunes that lie to the south of the town.
  • A bustling harbour from which you can enjoy watching all the boating activity, or take one of the many boating trips from glass bottom boats, ferries to other islands, fishing trips, sailing trips or scuba diving trips, many of which you can book online.
  • A pleasant sea front promenade with bars, restaurants and shops.
  • An enjoyable nightlife with plenty of bars, restaurants and even discos, the best nightlife on Fuerteventura. The hub of this is the main square, nicknamed 'Music square'
  • Good watersports facilities.
  • The almost guarenteed sunshine in summer and winter.
  • Three smaller beaches located around the town centre

Corralejo Playa Grande beach is a beautiful 7 kilometres of fine & very light coloured golden sandy beach and sand dunes which have been the movie backdrop to several fashion and TV advertisements. The beach is located just south of Corralejo and in places is hundreds of metres wide.

The beach slopes gently into the sea, and because of the reasonably stong winds the beach is a favourite with windsurfers. A windsurfing centre is located on the beach

You can select a busier section of the beach with sun beds and umbrellas on if you want you should be able to find a stretch of beach all to yourself.  Along side the road there are several hard shouldered sections for cars to park, in other areas make sure you do not get bogged down in the soft sand alongside the road. The sun beds and umbrella sections and popular car parking areas on the main FV1 road can easily be seen on our Google maps if you zoom in, remerber you can easily drag the maps in any direction or if you prefer use the move arrows on the left side of the map.

The best section of Corralejo Playa Grande beach is dominated by the 2 massive RIU hotels, the only hotels on this magnificent beach.

  • Club Hotel Riu Oliva Beach Resort
  • Hotel Riu Palace Tres Islas

Gay Beach

A gay section is located about 2 kilometers south of the 2 RIU hotels. This section is at the 22 kilometre marker "milestone" from Puerto Del Rosario.
