On the west coast of Fuerteventura is a world famouse shipwreck of the SS American Star cruise liner. All local guide books have exact directions for finding this sight, but the journey is on unmade roads so a good quality rent-a-car will be needed.Its a bit of a treck but well worth it.more
Because of Corralejo's mostly unspoilt coastline and little seafaring traffic the are high levels of fish and similar in the waters, even in the harbour itself.Fishing equipment can be hired from various places in old town, or bought relativley cheaply from one of its shops.I regularly fish from the bottom of the harbour wall (beyond the ferry...more
Fuerteventura is a vulcanic Island so the landscape is pretty baron. But when you start to come into Corralejo you hit the Sand dunes, The sand blows across from Africa. This is an amazing sight. If you park your car on the side of the road BEWARE as the sand drifts and can cover your vehicle. We walked into the sand dunes and you feel like you are...more

I have been to Chablis several times over the past 6 years. I have always found the food to be excellent and the staff very friendly and welcoming. I would not usually write a review, but I have just read pat uk comments about this bar and must say I am very surprised by what she says. I understand that people have different ideas and sometimes...more
What a place to eat absolutely top Sunday lunch price at 10.00 euros for 2 course and 12.50 euros for 3 course, also cooking from 12pm onwards as some places unusual hours for this type of food. This restaurant also does special dishes if you were looking for that sort of an evening meal. Sunday lunch had choice of meats we chose lamb and beef all...more
Called in here with teenage son one lunchtime as it overlooks main street and you can eat outside looked nice. I ordered a ploughmans lunch there was no description but priced @ 8.50 euros which you could eat very well for in area presumed wrongly I would be getting a lovely plateful of food with both cheese and ham as not specified usual stuff to...more
A very welcoming British pub/restaurant right on the harbour front, with views of Lanzarote and Lobos.Warm and friendly staff, lovely food - anything from an all-day breakfast to a full 3 course steak dinner - and all the usual beers, wines and spirits, plus teas and coffees. The drink prices are similar to most of the restaurants in that area, but...more
This authentic Argentinian grill in the backstreets of Corralejo offers one of the best fillet steaks in Europe. the cook on a bbq grill (no gas or electric - just natural flavour) and age their meat to perfection. There is only a dozen or so tables so avoid busy spanish eating times (8-10pm) the food is all home prepared and simple. There is a...more
Most of the seafood restaurants in Corralejo are in and around the old town harbour. This one is next to the Bristol Playa hotel a little further out from the town centre.Its a family run place, andvery loud and typically spanish, no frills just great local seafood at very cheap prices. Its very popular with the locals, so during busy times...more
These two bars are Corralejos finest music venues, both continually have the best quality music around, and provide a fantastic atmosphere.
Rock island is the more livelier place with a more stand up foot tapping style, where as Imagine is more a sit down relax enjoy the show type venue.
Dress Code: as with nearly all places in Fuerteventura, no dress code. but shorts & flip flops are standard.
The taxis in Correlejo are so cheap it's ridiculous! We stayed at the top of the hill, facing inland and a taxi from the centre of town cost 2.30 euros (but I always gave the cabbie 3 euros.)There are at least two ranks in the town centre but you can also wave down an empty taxi as they drive by - and it seems every third car in Corralejo is a...more

Once in Corralejo, nearly all main streets have a cycle path alongside the pavement. Beware, cyclists often travel along these at high speeds and there are often injurys to tourist that walk across them without looking. They should be treated the same as any other road, look both ways before crossing.more
The main high street in Corralejo has more than 30 Zebra crossings on it, and virtually all cars in town stop and allow people to cross (except tourists in rent-a-cars). this is the polite thing to do, and if a car BEEPS at you, it mearly a friendly you-have-right-of-way beep not a come-on-then beep.However, it is very rude to cross the road on a...more
Because of the steady cooling breeze in Fuerte, its very easy to assume its not that hot and use little or no sunscreen. BAD IDEA, for most of the year you will burn in under an hour without any protection, even when you think its not that hot.
As Corralejo is on the east coast of Fuerteventura, the sunsets are rarely spectacular. however the sunrise is definately worth setting you alarm clock for, Depending on your point of view you can see the sun appear from over the volcano on the 'Island of Lobos' or if you take a trip to the dunes you can see the sun turn th ocean gold as it rises...more
A couple of years ago I holidayed in Playa Blanca, in southern Lanzarote, and spent a day in Fuerteventura, taking the ferry to Corralejo. Corralejo itself was nothing much; I suppose some parts of the town were pretty, especially the seafront along the beaches with views to the Isla de los Lobos and Lanzarote in the distance. But we decided to...more
