Everything is a celebration in Fuerteventura – even shopping. A visit to the Canarian Market in Corralejo is a real fiesta. We’ll pick you up in Costa Caleta and drop you off at El Campanario Shopping Centre. As well as the usual shops, there are stalls selling typical – and very tempting – Canarian products, and a live band playing local tunes.
Corralejo is the hub of the north. Pastel-coloured homes line the seafront and fishing boats dot the beaches. And just a block away from one of the beaches is El Campanario. Designed like an old colonial village, it’s one of the most atmospheric shopping experiences in the Canaries. Browse the handmade arts and crafts on sale, or try your hand at haggling if you’re bold enough.
You’ll then have free time to explore Corralejo at your own pace. Watch the surfers as you stroll along the beach or fishermen bring in their haul at the harbour. And if you’re feeling peckish, you can tuck into the catch of the day in one of the many seafood restaurants.

Lobos Pirate Adventure
The Cap’n and his merry crew have hidden their loot on Lobos Island – now you and the kids have to find it before the Cap’n can. This treasure hunt in the uninhabited volcanic island lying to the north of Fuerteventura is all about fun and games – with a pirate twist.
You’ll climb aboard the glass-bottomed Celia Cruz in Corralejo, from where we’ll glide over to Lobos Island. Once you’ve reached land, the adventure begins in earnest as a friendly pirate will use a map to guide the kids to the whereabouts of the hidden treasure. There’ll also be lots of games to play on the beach.
It’s up to smallest family members to hunt down the treasure with their new pirate friends and complete all the games while you sit back and take in the scenery. A beach picnic of a sandwich, fruit and drink is included, and there’ll also be free time to swim and sunbathe, and check out the island. A great morning out for the whole family.
The hub of the north, Corralejo is one of the most exciting spots in Fuerteventura. Whether it’s shopping, socialising or sightseeing, it’s a hive of activity.

Discover Fuerteventura’s natural beauty spots on a relaxing e-bike tour. With four routes to choose from, your e-bike can be used like any other bike or at the flick of a switch, can help you to get up those steep bits.
On the easy tour from the north, you’ll pass ancient volcanic craters before a pit-stop at a local bar in Lajares. Take the advanced route from the north and you’ll travel the dusty, desert roads towards El Cotillo lagoon. And on both trips you’ll get to visit Calderon Hondo crater and take a well-earned swim stop too.
From the south, you can take the Costa Calma tour – a journey from east to west, over lunar landscapes and desert scenery, across the narrowest part of the island. Or, from the centre of the island, there is also the Caleta tour which takes in the Las Salinas coastline and then inland around the lunar landscapes as far as Puerto de la Torre. To finish, there is the option of a swim stop or to take a refreshing drink in a local bar.
If you’re itching to explore another of the Canary Islands while you’re in Fuerteventura, then this easy trip to Lanzarote will see you hopping there and back in a day. You’ll catch the ferry over from Corralejo and dock in Playa Blanca, where it’s up to you how you spend your time until the return ferry late in the afternoon.
The ferry will leave mid-morning for a quick 45-minute crossing to the volcanic lands of Lanzarote. Once you’ve stepped on to its shores, you’ll have about five hours to explore, see and do as you wish. Playa Blanca’s got a whole host of shops, bars and seafood restaurants lining the promenade, which are perfect for a spot of lunch.
There are also three beaches – two of which are Blue Flag winners, so you’re guaranteed great sunbathing conditions. Alternatively, head out of town to see Los Hervideros, a string of wind and wave-battered volcanic cliffs, and one of Lanzarote’s top attractions. Catch the ferry back in the late afternoon, and you’ll be in Corralejo in time for a pre-dinner cocktail.
