Information

The Parque Natural de Corralejo is a desert zone in the northeast corner of Fuerteventura. Its field of sand dunes and white sandy beaches stretches some 8km from Corralejo south to Montaña Rojo. Its fine sand, formed by erosion of sea shells, lies over extensive volcanic badlands (‘maplaís’). The area, covering over 2,600 hectares, was designated a Natural Park in 1994. This superseded the previous classification from 1982, which also included the Isla de Lobos — now a Parque Natural in its own right. The park is also part of a bird reserve (Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves).
