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.

We were picked up at our hotel at about 8.30am and were taken to the port. We then boarded the boat and sailed around for 2-3 hours. We saw a hammerhead shark and flying fish straight away and then didn't see anything for an hour or two. The guides were brilliant and frequently phoned other boats to see if anyone had seen any dolphins. After one phone call, we sailed to an area where dolphins had been and saw so many dolphins, which came right up to the boat. They were pilot whale dolphins. Photos were taken on the journey and throughout the day. We then sailed to the cove of Lobos and stopped to do snorkelling, paddle boarding, and canoeing. Photos were taken throughout this (high-quality photos that are free to download after the excursion), including underwater photos with the fish. Lunch of a seafood paella was provided. I am vegetarian so stayed in the water while everyone ate. There were about 12 of us on the tour. Brilliant experience.

Very professional service. We took the large glass bottom boat to the Island and spent a couple of hours there. You can choose your snorkelling/departure once on the boat. All equipment for snorkel activity is provided with the option of jumping in or using the ladder. Some people get a water taxi to the Island and just buy their own snorkel equipment locally. But this activity is a good option if you want to swim in the middle of the Ocean! We also saw a rare Eel while sailing which was pretty impressive! There is not much to do on Lobos but I would recommend visiting.

Very nice experience. In this trip you can visit the Calderon ondo volcano.and the beautiful small town of El Cotillo.and the lighthouse.and the spectacular sand beaches of Corralejo National Park. Alfredo my guide very friendly and knowledgeable of the places.i really recommended to anybody

Nice boat ride and the beach on the island is awesome. The water so calm and clear. Perfect spot for snorkling The restaurant on the island is closed so it's best to bring a pack lunch!
