My Hotel Recommendations for Corralejo, Fuerteventura
The Atlantis Hotels have two properties in Corralejo on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura - the Spanish archipelago which has one of the best climates in the world and some of the best beaches in all of Europe (although the Canary Islands belong to Spain, their geographic location is much closer to Africa). Simply spectacular: the Parque Natural de Dunas de Corralejo, a nature reserve with impressive dunes and sandy beaches. Did you know that the whole island has been declared as a Biosphere Reserve and Starlight Reserve?
The award-winning Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahía Real*****GL is located right on the beach, with stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and the neighboring islands of Lobos and Lanzarote. The famous dunes of Corralejo are just a short walk away. This luxury hotel is said to be the best of the island. It stands for a very high comfort, an excellent gastronomy in six different restaurants and has an award-winning spa which is second to none. Have a look at my little video clip to get a rough idea:
Suite Hotel Atlantis Fuerteventura Resort - ideal for Families
The Suite Hotel Atlantis Fuerteventura Resort**** is just a stone throw away and is one of the best all-inclusive hotels you can find on the island. A wonderful tropical garden, many sports facilities, lots of entertainment (day and night) and a great gastronomic offer. Ideal for families with kids and everyone looking for an active fun vacation. All kinds of water sports (including diving lessons in the pool), tennis and much more. If you are more into a quiet vacation, you may consider a stay in the so-called Premium Zone which is for adults only. Here´s my short video clip about the Suite Hotel Atlantis Fuerteventura Resort:
Breathtaking Beaches and lovely Villages
Fuerteventura is mainly known for its stunning beaches but did you know that this island is the oldest of the Canary archipelago, created approximately 20 million years ago? It is absolutely worth while to explore Fuerteventura by car or jeep and to admire its volcanic origin and historic villages such as Betancuria. Here are my impressions from an island excursion in fall 2017. Should you wish to get to know an even more adventurous place, take a day trip to the neighboring island of Lobos which I visited in 2018. Rest assured, a truly spectacular place!
Second largest Canary Island, approximately 120 km off the coast of Morocco. Fuerteventura is particularly popular among beach lovers and those who are into water sports. The island is offereing great conditions for all kinds of surfing. Fuerteventura has two protected nature parks, tParque Natural de Corralejo and Parque Rural de Betancuria. The island´s landscapes are mostly stinted and of volcanic origin. The most popular destinations are Corralejo in the North as well as Costa Calma and Jandia in the South of Fuerteventura.
The airport of Fuerteventura is only 7 km South of the capital city Puerto del Rosario (less interesting for tourists) and located right on the coast. Transfer from the airport to Corralejo lasts about 40 minutes.
I recommend to rent a car, Fuerteventura has a great network of roads.
