Fuerteventura Canary Islands is often associated with its pristine beaches, with over 150 kilometres of white sand and clear green waters. And right up north facing Los Lobos, you will find Corralejo. Here, you will find Fuerteventura beaches that are ideal for surfing and a municipality that's alive at night. It also features an old town, which is the heart of Corralejo. While these are exciting spots, one of the most popular activities here is going to Corralejo Sand Dunes Natural Park.
Let's talk about Fuerteventura sand dunes and why it's a must-see, and how you can get there.
What you need to know about Sand Dunes Fuerteventura
Visitors who are looking to fill their Fuerteventura things to do list should really consider going to the Fuerteventura Sand Dunes. Locally known as Parque Natural de las Dunas de Corralejo, this top activity in Fuerteventura Canary Islands has the largest area in the Canaries and is a protected area which was made as a park in 1994. The 2600-hectare area is covered with sand dunes which were formed organically. The perfect mixture of sand and beach can only be found at this natural park. Here, you will also find a wide variety of flora and birds, as the dunes are areas of special protection for birds.
So what can you actually do here? When you walk along the coast made of fine white sand, you will reach the beautiful Fuerteventura beaches. The turquoise waters are perfect not just for swimming but for pictures as well. While the whole of Fuerteventura Canary Islands is Instagram worthy, you will enjoy the sand dunes because there's lots of privacy here, unlike other spots on the island. You could even go on a photo walk because every spot of the 8-kilometre dunes is picturesque.
Another item on your Fuerteventura things to do should be trying out the water sports at the Sand Dunes Park. Weather its windsurfing, kitesurfing or just surfing, this is the perfect spot to do it, especially since you can do it all year round. You can also go biking or quad biking so you can get around in a much cooler way! But if you want to go in a one-of-a-kind way, go on a camel ride!
Also, since the sand dunes are right across Lobos island, you can take a side trip and visit. It will only take 15 minutes on a boat and you'll get to see more untouched paradise.
