The beautiful island of Fuerteventura boasts over three thousand hours of sunshine annually and is only 100km from the North African Coast. This wonderfully warm climate is what made the Canary Islands such a popular holiday destination. It is the second largest of the Canary Islands and was declared as a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO protecting the overdevelopment seen on some of the other islands.

Despite tourism being relatively new to the island there is a well developed infrastructure with an 18 hole championship golf course, a water park, a zoo and miles of unspoilt white sandy beaches. You are based in El Cotillo which is a charming and rustic fishing village located in the north west of the island and slowly becoming a Mecca for the surf community in particular.

With the hire car provided you have the best of both worlds here - based in the beautiful harbour area of the lively town of Corralejo, easily accessible by foot from the accommodation and the added bonus of the car hire enabling you to head off and find some of Fuerteventura’s hidden gems too.

Suitable for

Families with children aged 8 years and older (this does not preclude families with children younger than 8 but they may not be able to take part in all activities).

Corralejo Beachside Apartments

The apartments are based in a central, seafront location in the lively town of Corralejo.  A ten minute walk will take you to the centre of Corralejo and access to the range of bars, restaurants, cafés and shops nearby.

The apartments have fantastic facilities including three swimming pools, games room and bicycle hire during the week.

There is a range of apartments and the two bedroom accommodation is a great base for a family during their time on Fuerteventura. There are two twin bedrooms and all apartments have a small kitchenette and there is a small supermarket on site too if you decide to self cater or a range of restaurant options are within easy walking distance.

The hotel rooms are comfortable and all have modern comforts including satellite television, direct dial telephone, safety deposit box and a fully fitted kitchen. All apartments have their own private balcony to relax in the evening.


Saturday: Arrival and welcome
Upon arrival at the airport you will pick up your car hire before driving to your apartment in the harbour area of the town of Corralejo. A welcome meeting with your rep will be held this evening to introduce the week’s programme of activities ahead.

Sunday: Surf’s up!
Today you will have a full day’s surf lesson with an expert instructor. Depending on the weather conditions your guide will transport the group to the most suitable beach for beginners where you will practise the basics. This simple instruction will really help you when you get into the water. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and get advice from your guide during this introductory session. A welcome meal in a local restaurant will be served this evening.

Monday: Sea kayaking
This morning your guide will take you along the local coastline using sea kayaks. This activity is a really great way to gain a new perspective on this destination and appreciate the miles of beautiful beaches along the shore. After your kayak adventure there will be time for swimming and relaxing on the beach this afternoon.

Tuesday: Surfing day 2
You should have mastered the basics on Sunday so today you will learn some new, more difficult skills on the surf board. Your expert guide will be on hand to assist those who are still mastering the fundamental skills and to encourage and challenge those who are natural surfers.

Wednesday:  Free day
Today we have left free for you to explore the local area. Mountain bikes can be hired from the hotel or alternatively you can use your hire car to discover a different part of this wonderful island. Alternatively, make use of the hotel’s fantastic swimming pool and terrace to enjoy a relaxing day.

Thursday: Stand up paddling
This is an up and coming activity which is already extremely popular on the island. Originally invented in Hawaii as a way for surf instructors to have better visibility over their group, many people now enjoy this sport in its own right and it is rightly developing an increasingly large following.

Friday: Final surfing day, dude
Today you will have a final day of lessons to build on your new found surfing skills. Following these three days of lessons you should be very comfortable on the surf board and the braver individuals may even be able to attempt some tricks, with your instructor’s guidance, on some of the bigger waves. We recommend bringing a waterproof camera to record your achievements!

This evening a farewell meal will be served in a local restaurant offering a chance to look back at the week’s activities and reflect on your time on this wonderful island. 

Saturday:  Depart or extend your stay
Today it is time to leave this beautiful island. Alternatively if you would like to spend more time in Fuerteventura we would be happy to discuss extension options with you.

Fuerteventura has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Here they will combine development with respect for the environment and local traditions of the Island.

This holiday is based in Corallejo and is really a back to nature holiday combined with water based activities. Corallejo is a small, un-commercialised area, located at the North West point of the Island far from any mass tourism. It is very popular with surfers and locals.

The accommodation on offer is locally owned and provides year round jobs for locals living in the area.

Our local suppliers work to make customers aware of their surrounding environment when walking/cycling in the area by making sure they do not stray from paths and cycle routes or leave waste on ecologically sensitive areas. This is particularly relevant on the beaches around the Northern point of the Island.

Our local partners are heavily integrated into the local community and all of our guides and drivers are from the surrounding area.

Amy Walkington-Gray, activities abroad, winter activity holiday
Our Opinion

“I love this part of Fuerteventura! Its year-round warm climate means that it is possible to surf here throughout the summer months but it is also a fantastic place to visit during the Easter and half term breaks.

Corallejo is one of the lesser developed areas on the island and has some beautiful beaches and the perfect conditions to learn how to surf.”  Amy Walkington-Gray
