Destination guide

Staying in Corralejo holiday rentals

Tucked into a little inlet on the northern side of Fuerteventura, Corralejo and its swathes of pristine beaches offer something to balance out the buzzing resorts found elsewhere in the Spanish Canaries. Much of the seascapes around the main town are protected by a nature reserve, which means high-rise condos are replaced by sweeping dunes and grass-topped sandhills. The waters are clean and inviting, too, forever dotted with somersaulting kitesurfers. Corralejo holiday lettings beckon from the old fishing village and its suburbs, putting you between cobbled lanes filled with Canarian markets and palm-studded promenades with family restaurants, yoga studios and art galleries.

Food & drink 

The local delicacies of Corralejo

Like the other Canary Islands around it, Fuerteventura has nurtured a unique local cuisine that's just another addition to the list of temptations when you're staying in a Corralejo holiday rental. Start with a dish of herb-infused potatoes, heavily salted and tossed in fresh rosemary stalks. Then, consider the local puchero – it's a centuries-old peasant stew that's packed with meaty Canarian sausages, shredded cabbage, pulses and spicy Spanish chorizo. Cheese-lovers will find that the Majorero is a must. Milky and soft, it's a light and tasty delicacy that goes perfectly with fresh fruits at lunchtime.
