Fuerteventura, the European Caribbean! Once the pickup has been completed, the boat awaits us in Playa Blanca, a small town located in the south of Lanzarote and a connection to Fuerteventura. After a short journey of about 30 minutes, we get offboard in the town of Corralejo, Fuerteventura. Corralejo is one of the main tourist centres of the island of Fuerteventura and it has extensive beaches of fine sand and more than 2,600 hectares of the Corralejo Natural Park.

From Corralejo, we head to one of the best farms of Aloe Vera on the island and where we stop to get to know the benefits of this plant. Aloe Vera is cultivated as a decorative plant for medicinal uses, cosmetics and even as food in some countries. Given the climatology of the island of Fuerteventura, this plant has found a paradise spice where to develop its magnificent healing properties.

We continue towards the south passing the sacred "mountain of Tindaya", place of adoration of the natives, located in the municipality of La Oliva to 6 km of the sea. The mountain of Tindaya is considered the most emblematic natural monument of the island of Fuerteventura. The geological interest of the mountain is characterized by the quality of the stone that constitutes it, a trachyte of grey-light brown color with a peculiar vein.

It has also a special historical and archaeological interest because of the number of rock engravings it houses, more than 300 engravings with foot forms or paedomorphy.

Then we visit a traditional farm with cheeses and typical products of Fuerteventura, tasting goat cheeses, animal symbol of the island. In Betancuria, the first capital of the island. Its name is due to the Norman Jean de Béthencourt who founded it in 1404, the valley of Betancuria was the first settlement of the island. We walk through its streets full of history and see its church. In the hermitage of Vega de Río Palmas is the image of Nuestra Señora de la Peña, patroness of Fuerteventura.

We continue by the Massif de Betancuria where we will enjoy its local fauna and its breath-taking views.

Our excursion continues through "Pájara" and "Antigua", one of the most populated areas of the island before the conquest, to finally reach the Santa Inés Valley where you will have the possibility of having lunch *.

As a finishing touch, we stop at the "dunes of Corralejo" and its endless beaches that constitute one of the main attractions of the island of Fuerteventura, white sandy beaches and the largest dunes of the Canarian Archipelago. This is a must have and promotional postcard of Fuerteventura.

The beaches of Corralejo have become an attractive spot for water sports such as surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing and stand up paddle among many other water activities that people can enjoy during their stay in Fuerteventura. The beaches of Fuerteventura host the "Canarias Surf Film Festival", a cultural and sporting event linked to this sport.

Once in the port of Corralejo, we take the catamaran back to Lanzarote.

Reviews and comments

We took the all-day tour of Fuerteventura, which included visits to an Aloe Vera farm and one dedicated to goats' cheese, the old town of Betancuria, and various sights of natural beauty. Whatever one thinks of the healing properties of Aloe Vera, it is botanically a more interesting plant, and the owner's demonstration was fascinating. The goat farm was delightful. The natural scenery is impressive in its mountainous barrenness, and the Dutch guide delivered a fluent and interesting commentary in three languages. There was, however, one drawback too the experience: the lunch. Whereas this company's Volcanoes and Tours excursion featured an excellent lunch for only 8 euros, the 10 euro lunch on this tour was terrible, and was agreed to be terrible by everyone I spoke to: many people were complaining to each other. This was the one blot on an otherwise excellent experience, and I urge the company to remedy this problem as a matter of urgency.

Great tour, great places, especially the town of Benturia just stunning!!! Also stunning the Dunes of Corralejo - and in my opinion - it would be great to save more time than 30 min for that - at least 45min to 1h as it’s SO stunning, also with the sea!!! And park somewhere closer there!!!X X X
