Sand Dunes of Corralejo

Located in the north of Fuerteventura and span a large part of the island’s east coast

A place overflowing with beauty, a destination laden with exoticism, a paradise that calls for solitude, a setting as extraordinary as it is magical. This is the Dunas de Corralejo (Sand Dunes of Corralejo), with around 2500 hectares of desert that rests on an area overlooking heavenly beaches.

They are located in the north of Fuerteventura, near to the town of Corralejo, and span a large part of the island’s east coast. They are a symbol of Fuerteventura and somewhere to be proud of, and as soon as you visit them you will understand why.

Walking with no set direction through this untouched landscape, whether through its sea of sand or along its sensational shoreline is a wonderful experience. There is nothing better in Fuerteventura than trying in vain to reach a horizon in a place where silence and solitude are only broken by the birds that roam the area.

Its main downside? The wind. This characteristic is something that has been capitalised on since the end of the 1980s through the fantastic Festival de Cometas (Kite Festival). It is usually celebrated at the start of November. If you are on the island, don’t miss out – the show is unique.
