Las Grandes Playas is a 3.5km-long group of beaches in the Parque Natural de Corralejo. This stretch of Fuerteventuran coastline has at its centre two hotels – the Clubhotel Riu Oliva Beach and the Riu Palace Tres Islas. These are the only two buildings in the Parque Natural. The fine sandy beaches together with the near constant winds make this a very popular spot for water sports such as surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding.

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 This superseded the previous classification from 1982, which also included the Isla de Lobos — now a Parque Natural in its own right.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).
