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”.

Booked it online, had to download the app to get q code but all ok when connected to WiFi. I got there just on time as the local bus was late but no problem boarding, they had all my details. I opted for a 17:30 return with an option to get a 16:30 if room, in the end I got on the 16:30 return as the sun had gone behind clouds. No problem getting back. Just a word of advice if you are going to walk up the mountain on Lobos or around the island you need good footwear such as trainers, and if you want to swim in the lagoons a snorkel mask is great, great day out.

The crew on board was very friendly. It's only a 15 minute trip or so from Corralejo to Lobos, but it was comfortable and the boat was easy to find at the dock. No complaints! Lobos itself is also definitely worth a trip! The lagoons are beautiful, the beaches are nice and quiet. The little fishing village is so cute. If you're in Corralejo, I'd definitely recommend this outing!

Smooth ferry ride from and to Corralejo. 4 hours is enough to explore Lobos, including hiking up the mountain which I would suggest you do first while you have energy. :) the crew on board was very friendly and I would certainly do this trip again. Don’t forget lots of water and snacks. There is a restaurant at El Puertito by a small beach area.

Quick and safe trip to Lobos. The island itself has a beautiful and diverse landscape. It took us three and a half hours to walk round.

This is an excellent trip. It’s really well organised and relaxed. The guide is friendly and very helpful
