Do & See
In all, the young and trendy surf set mingle with second home-owners from the less balmy regions of Europe. The latter happy for blue skies and high temperatures, and the former also seeking rolling waves and a rocking nightlife. However, away from these visitor hubs the tranquillity of old is easy to find, even on the beaches - with such a profusion of broad sandy strips, towel space is never going to be a problem. Away from the shoreline, desolate roads lined with squat, round windmills link tiny villages of sugar cube cottages. Here, the population ekes out an existence producing world renowned cheese and ruby red tomatoes.
Do & See

Isla de Lobos

These days, despite its name – Wolf Island – you will not spot any saucer-eyed wolf packs lounging on the beach of this tiny island. What you will get, if you make the 3-kilometre ferry crossing, is that ‘get-away-from-it-all’ feeling.
Corralejo Natural Park

Corralejo Natural Park

Behind the northern resort of Corralejo lies the ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ playground of the Corralejo Natural Park. It consists of 20 square kilometres of rolling sand dunes and unique plant life.
Do & See

America Star Shipwreck

There is something unnerving yet fascinating about standing close to the wreck of a beached ocean liner. Although much of the SS American Star has been claimed by the sea since its demise in 1994, the bow still soars defiantly from the shallow waters.
Do & See

Lajares

Head 10 kilometres south of Corralejo to Artisania Lajares, where you can watch the island’s famous lace being woven. The shops are open from 9 am to 7 pm on weekdays and to 1 pm on Saturdays.
Do & See

La Oliva

In the sleepy ex-capital of La Oliva you will find the ornate Canarian carpentry of fine mansions such as the Casa de los Coroneles. Take the chance and visit the pretty little church, Parroquiade Nuestra Seiiora de Candelaria, in the city centre.
Do & See

Deep Blue Diving Base

Learning how to dive should not be done in a pool but in the sea. Deep Blue Diving Base provides you with the perfect opportunity to pass your license or discover new and exciting things in the deep blue.
Do & See

Mirador de Lobos Golf

This is a 9-hole par 3 golf course in Corralejo. As golf should be a part of a vacation this course is recommended for both beginners and advanced players.
Do & See

Homegrown Surfschool

Surf, relax and have fun, in short, this is what Homegrown Surfschool stands for. The staff is friendly and it is a great place to catch your first wave if you have never caught one before.
