    Beer

    Cheers

    If like me you enjoy a pint then it might be useful to know that the local draught larger costs from 1.20 euros to 4 euros for a pint depending where you drink. I found that most bars where the locals drink away from the tourist areas can be cheaper yet some English run bars can be less expensive too. If you like more than a couple of beers in the evening like me you could end up saving yourself a fair few euros. So if you are going out for a few shop around and also look for the happy hours. You can have many a good night in a local bar with local people singing and dancing the night away, Cheers!

    Supermarkets

    HiperDino

    There are lots of supermarkets in Corralejo but I found that going to ones like the HiperDino you have more choice of products and lots more variations of fresh fruit, meat and vegetables wich is handy if you are on a self catering holiday.

    Beach Cafe Corralejo

    Wether you are buying a camera or a camel always haggle the price. For example tell them your best price and go from there if you walk out the shop and they dont come after you then you know the last price you said is too low. You can pick up some good bargains if you are prepaired to stand your ground, sometimes you can bargain for an hour and come out with nothing, so keep cool and show them who is the boss.

    Is she? Actually no, it was a thong bikini bottom

    It's worth noting before you book up your holiday that on most beaches here it's perfectly acceptable, and not at all unusual, to find people naked. Don't expect them all to be ex-stars of Baywatch either! Many are quite elderly and a lot heavier, I'm sure, than in their youth, so peeping-Toms will be disappointed. However, I'm sure they're all perfectly pleasant people and if you are offended by them then you might want to consider going elsewhere. It's a free world. (Well, mostly.)

    Beaches in the town areas such as those within Corralejo itself, and those immediately adjacent to the large hotels, are mostly not treated as "clothing optional", though topless sunbathing is still commonplace there too. If you DO find yourself going to Fuerteventura and worried about stumbling over naked people on the beach, stick to these areas or the hotel pools.

    Playa de Jandia Fuerteventura

    In Fuerteventura is normal see a family, couples, naked people, topless...in the same beach, the only danger are the tropic sun and the crazy waves sometimes. This is Jandia beach in the Butihondo sector

    18th Century Castle

    Caleta de Fuste was built around an 18th Century castle, but unfortunately for tourists you cannot see much of it unless you are staying in the hotel they built around it !
    But if you are walking around the harbour, this is the view you see, it looks pretty at night when its all lit up

    Children are first.

    I have found that the local people absolutely idolise children.

    They will talk to the child, before they will talk to you. My children were quite spoiled, and had a wonderful time, and because they had a wonderful time, we had a wonderful time too.

    Don’t be afraid of your children taking over the place. As long as they are not nasty little critters, they will be welcomed.
