Fuerteventura: Return Lobos Island Ferry Ticket with Entry

2. Fuerteventura: Return Lobos Island Ferry Ticket with Entry

After just 20-minutes by boat from Corralejo, be amazed by the different tones of blue water whilst you disembark to this hidden corner of the Atlantic Ocean. Looking to the right of the harbor, you will find the path that takes you to El Puertito, an old fishing village next to a white-sand beach. At El Puertito, you can find the only restaurant on the island and a few buildings that were built before the island had been declared a Natural Park. Surrounded by tranquil waters, you will enjoy the island’s rich and exotic sea life. To the left of the harbor, you can find the most famous beach on this side of El Río. Take a swim in the calm and crystal clear, turquoise blue water or sunbathe in the fine sand, perfect for families with children, couples, young and old. This beach is commonly known as “La Concha” (the Shell) because of its shape, although the official name is La Caleta because of the limescale oven that played an important role in the construction of the “Martiño” lighthouse. From here you can see in the distance the dunes of Corralejo, the contours of Fuerteventura and when turning your back to the sea, appreciate the unique mountain “La Caldera”. Don’t forget to visit the nearby statue of Josefine Plá, the Spanish writer, poet and essayist, who was born on the island. Take a deep breath, a bottle of water and get ready to climb the highest peak of the island. The “La Caldera” mountain is a volcanic cone of relatively recent origin. Enjoy a fantastic view of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote from its 127-meter peak. Time stands still here as you take in the silence and colour of this splendid natural surrounding.  Whilst visiting the Northern part of the island, you will find the lighthouse, whose first lighthouse keeper was Josefine Plá’s father. Nowadays, the lighthouse works fully automatically and has been restored to its full splendour. Within the shade of this structure, stop for a rest while admiring the sea and Lanzarote with its volcanoes in the background. Admire the volcanic nature of the island’s interior and take a walk on the “Saladar (salt marsh) del Faro Martiño” and “Las Lagunitas”. More than 130 plant species and endemic birds live here, which has converted this idyllic paradise into a protected natural park. Enjoy a hiking excursion that will see your senses awakened to the island’s wildlife.

(Sunset cava + self guided stargazing, in April) First time on a stargazing tour. Solid overall. I was scared the bad weather could ruin the experience, but both sunset and stargazing are done above the clouds, so you could see everything perfectly. The cava part isn't really worth it in my opinion, if you have a car. The sunset is beautiful but you can just do the same thing by yourself. The stargazing - they let us see 5 different objects through the telescope, and didn't pressure us to be quick. They offered to take pictures of everyone at the end with the sky in the background. Unfortunately the milky way isn't visible in April, but we happened to spot a few shooting stars. The explanations are at a basic level (which I don't blame them for) so if you know a bit of astronomy already you won't be too impressed. Anyway would definitely recommend, at least if it's your first time stargazing.

A wonderful tour to discover the main sites of the island. The 15€ optional lunch was very nice too. We couldn’t hear the guide very well but he never stops...however it is very well organised and timings are impeccable. The road up from Masca is impressive but I had every confidence in the driver! Beautiful views, amazing scenery, fascinating geology, picturesque villages and also glimpse of the past eruptions and the black volcanic rock left behind! I thoroughly recommend this excursion. Do not try to drive it yourself!

Wow! What an amazing evening and great value for money. Lovely tasty food at a local Canarian restaurant up on the mountain side and great wine. Then on to a beautiful location to see the sunset. The stream of orange, red and yellows lighting up the sky in a almost unrealistic surrounding. Then finally to the highest road point on teide to see the stars. Lots of information unbelievable views into the night sky. It was very cold and dark at the top but for us just made the experience more surreal. Would recommend for all.

From volcanos to the desert, to end in front of the ocean: amazing experience. The guide was super friendly and experienced, he explained us interesting details about the island's geology, plus cultural aspects that made us understand better how people live and experience the island.

Great experience. About 40% on road, 60% off-road. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. The professional photographer was great. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who has not done this before!
