Corralejo Boat Rentals
Corralejo is a town on the island of Fuerteventura, which is one of the seven islands of the Canary Islands, an autonomous community of Spain. The Canary Islands are off the west coast of Morocco in the Atlantic Ocean. Corralejo is famous for having the most stunning beaches in all of Fuerteventura. It’s a beautiful resort town, with strong winds, perfect for water sports enthusiasts.
The best time of year to visit Corralejo is during the spring and autumn months, but you’ll most likely have warm weather all year-round. The winter months of November through February typically have more rainfall than other times of the year. The summer is busy, with lots of tourists visiting Fuerteventura, but it’s a great time to visit if you want long hours of sunlight and high temperatures to enjoy the beaches.
To get to Corralejo, most visitors arrive by ferry to the port, Puerto del Rosario or flight to the airport of Fuerteventura. From the airport to Corralejo, it’s about a 30-minute drive. Renting a car is the best way to get around the island, but if you want to stay in Corralejo during the majority of your time, you could take a taxi from the airport to Corralejo, and explore the town on foot.
