    Ferry to Lanzarote

    by lomi Updated Oct 20, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 2 ferry services criss-crossing the short journey between Playa Blanca in Lanzarote and Correlejo in Fuerteventura. They run most of the day between 7.45am til 20.00pm.

    The high speed ferry of Fred Olsen takes 15 minutes, the other company, Naviera Armas takes 25 mins. Prices start at about 10 euros for a foot passenger each way. Both have a bar/restaurant on board and both carry vehicles.

    The market in Playa Blanca is held at Marina Rubicon, a 20 minute walk from the harbour, on Wednesday between 09:00 and 14:00. This market offers a good selection of clothes, jewellery and many other Lanzarote gifts.

    Local buses

    by lomi Updated Oct 20, 2010

    The local buses are cheap, and plentiful. If you don't want to hire a car, or go off on tours there is a great bus service connecting most of the island.

    If you are staying in Correlejo its best to get a No 6 bus to Puerto del Rosario, which are on the hour and half hour from outside the bus station and 10 mins before that from the ferry port. You can get many more connections from Puerto del Rosario to elsewhere. It costs 3.10 euros (October 2010 prices) from Correlejo to Puerto del Rosario and it passes through the sand dune areas where the No 6 also stops to pick up and drip off.

    The driver can refuse to change a 20 or 50 euro note, so its best if you have the correct change.

    The buses do not accept dogs, surf boards or bicycles.

    Hire a car - really easy to drive around here.

    by Kristymamoo Written Jun 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We hired a car for the duration of our holiday. The roads were really easy to navigate and in really good condition so driving around the Island was a pretty straightforward experience. Towns do tend to disappear from the roadsigns though, so you'll think you've passed somewhere and then the name will appear again.

    The only downside to this was the car-hire compnay we used: Orlando Car Hire. When they met us at the airport all the signs were good; smart mini-bus, uniformed reps etc., and first impressions when we arrived at the warehouse were also good; all the cars looked clean and relatively new. There were 5 seperate cars being rented out when we arrived, I ended up last in the queue because I was messing around with the kids, while I was waiting three of the four that had gone before me brought there cars back because of some-kind of fault (lights out/engine warning light on etc.), the rep then tried to give me one of the cars that had been brought back.

    This really is a great way to get to see the Island. We did however see lot's of jeeps driving around and wished we'd booked one of those instead!!

    Tiadhe Buses

    A Tiadhe Bus Stop

    The Tiadhe buses are the only one mean of public transport on Fuerteventura. They are very comfortable and the prices are reasonable. If you want to save a lot of money buy the TARJETA DINERO instead of buying individual tickets on the bus. It costs 12 Euros. Using the Tarjeta Dinero you pay 20%-30% less for each trip. Entering the bus you tell the driver your destination and insert the ticket into a cancelling machine.
    The buses don't circulate frequently. The timetables are only in the main stations and are not clear. You probably won't see any timetable at the stops around the island. I didn't see.
    The locals are not sure when the buses departure eighter.
    Visit the Tiadhe website for timetables and any kind of information.

    The airport in Fuerteventura is situated close to Puerto del Rosario. The bus number 3 circulates between Caleta de Fustes an Puerto every half hour every day except Sunday (On Sunday every one hour). The ticket costs about 1€ and you buy it from the bus driver.

    If you don't rent a car, keep in mind that comfortable and efficient buses run every half-hour between the majors cities (Pto Rosario - Corralejo, Airport...)

    Prices are okay (up to approx 3.50 euro)

    Coming Home

    We stayed about 5 mins drive away from the airport, great after a three and a half hour flight, but the down fall was the noise. We didnt think of that until the following day as we could almost see the passengers whilst still on board thir flights!!

    Around Fuerteventura by bus

    by bijo69 Updated Aug 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get to most places of Fuerteventura by bus. The main routes like Puerto del Rosario-Corralejo (no.6), Puerto del Rosario-Caleta de Fuste/Airport (no.3) and Costa Calma-Morro Jable (no.5) are served frequently. The buses are quite comfortable and have aircon. Prices are ok, e.g. 2,50 Euro for Puerto del Rosario-Corralejo. In case you want to visit the villages inland its best to hire a car (appr. 35 EURO/day).

    Rent a car and travel around the island. Unfortunately we weren?t able to rent one, as you have to be over 21, but there arebautiful deserted sports to explore. I can?t really recommend travel with the local buses as they coem whenever they want and they don?t always take you where you want to go!

    The most common way to Fuerteventura is obviously by plane, There are several charter air lines that go frecuently to Fuerteventura. The airport on the island is next to the capital Puerto del Rosario, the way to the south end by bus needs about one and a half hour.

    Its a big island !!!

    by jamesandsarah2002 Written Jul 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just a couple of comments.

    It takes about 2 1/2 hours north to south of the island via the fast route. With nothing in the middle. (So unless you have good reason dont bother going north/south).

    We went to lanzaorte to see the volcanos which is worth it but a long day !!!

    SLOW MOUNTAIN ROUTE. For the mountain route, its rather hairy. steep drops and clips so if your a nervus driver or have a nervus passenger beware. It takes ages to go north ' / south that way. Lots of 1 lane roads with big buses comming the other way with steep drops !.

    THE BOAT THAT STANDS STILL

    by Nixter01 Written Apr 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shipwreck

    The best way to see the Island is by boat/car.
    A car will get you into places inside the Island that you could never find in a boat, but you can find all more hidden nooks and crannies just as good by boat whilst someone else is steering and you can get a tan at the same time!
    The boat you see beneath is basically docked /abandonned there.
    It ran ashore afew years ago and they decieded to leave it there as a attraction and possibly the cost to move it to, but I personally believe it looks alot nicer like this than it would adrift on the sea.
    I'll let you make your own judgement about that.

    Rent a Jeep

    by lup Written Apr 9, 2003

    We hired a Jeep at Wendy's in Corralejo on the main street. It wasn't too expensive (about 26000 psta for 3 days, including insurance. A Jeep is a great vehicle to travel around Fuerte, because there aren't many paved roads. The most beautiful places can only be visited over dirt tracks.
