Corralejo is located at the northern tip of Fuerteventura and is known for its wonderful Beaches. There are some of the most impressive beaches just south of Corralejo in the Parque Natural de Corralejo. Shuttle buses run to and from most hotels on a regular basis. Once you are there, you can lose yourself and enjoy the breathtaking and awe inspiring scenery. There is also abundant water and wind sports available to rent. You will not find very many shops, so make sure you have plenty of water and plenty of sun screen. You will find naturists in this area, mostly on either side of the two large RUI hotels. Most is concealed for privacy and shelter from the wind. Most beaches do have lifeguards on duty, and take notice of the flags they will have flying. The beach is considered dangerous with a red flag and can have strong undertows, even for the strongest of swimmers. The Grandes Playas beach has the prestigious Blue Flag award, which is award each year to beaches that meet certain standards. You can find more information on all the great Corralejo beaches here.
