Corralejo is a great destination with plenty of things to do. With steady warm weather, there are not many excuses to not be outdoors!
Here you will find 5 different ideas to spend your day outdoors enjoying the amazing nature around you.
E-foiling / e-surf 🔋🌊
Do you love surfing but are too lazy to paddle? Or you got just unlucky and you got a flat day, with no waves? Electric surfing might save your day!
Yes, electric boards are a thing, and you are lucky enough to have some providers in Corralejo and a great landscape for it! If you ever wonder how come some people are floating over the water like Jesus on drugs, you can discover it by yourself.
Electric surfing is a pretty new sport, and it's great for all levels. Even if you have never surfed before, you can learn it pretty easily. They are easy-ish to ride (depending on the sea conditions) and really safe! And even better, super fun 😃
Cost: From 59€

Snorkel in Los Lobos 🐺🤿
Los Lobos is a beautiful island only a 10-minute boat ride away from the Corralejo. If you had been in Corralejo, you saw the island across the sea in front of the beach. The island was designated a natural park in 1982, but even if the island is named honouring the seals that once lived there, there are not any left anymore.
The island's crystal-clear waters, light golden sand and protected waters make it a great spot for snorkelling and swimming. A ferry from the harbour will take you to the island, and paying a small premium you will get into the snorkel boat that will take you to the best spots! Totally worth it 👌
Cost: 17.5€ for a return trip, 25.5€ for the snorkelling boat
Fitness level: for everybody
Surf these waves! 🏄♀️
An obvious one, if you have been there you can not escape all the surf and wetsuits vibes. But maybe you never dare to try it out. Corralejo and the north of Fuerteventura in general is a great spot to learn, so why don't you try it out? And if you already know how to handle these waves, just rent a board and go for it!
You will find plenty of schools and cheap rentals around, so you will not struggle to find what you need. There are many different spots, around Corralejo's beach, and you will find from beach breaks to point breaks. Or you can discover El Cotillo, on the west of the island, with many more options.
Because surfing depends a lot on the tides, wind and general conditions, we recommend popping into some surf shop, renting some gear and asking for the best spots to go given the current conditions.
Cost: Rentals from 10€
Fitness level: surf is a physical activity, while you don't need to be ultra fit, a minimum core is required to enjoy it
Cycle to popcorn beach 🚴🍿
Popcorn what? Yes, this exists, a beach in the north of Fuerteventura. But I have bad news... It's not real popcorn 😞
But don't get depressed, it's a really cool place to be and to fulfil your Instagram dreams! And combine it with a great cycling trip enjoying the wild north coast.
The cycle back and forth is around 10 km, and you can extend the loop going further. If you dare to cycle for 45 km, you can go back and forth to El Cotillo, enjoying plenty of good landscapes and the beautiful El Cotillo!
There are plenty of bike rentals around Corralejo, you can even hire an electric one to go easier. Just watch out and don't go on a windy day if you don't want to pedal too hard! 🌬️🚴🏿
Cost: Rentals from 15€
Fitness level: all levels
You love cycling, but you don't care about popcorn? You are a strong cyclist that loves pushing and sweating on the bike? Then, go to the next level!
Rob and BRKS will introduce you to this amazing new world of assisted pedalling with their amazing e-bikes. And because they are E-bikes it's suited not only to the crazy pros, everybody can enjoy them.
