Travel to Nature Parks in Fuerteventura in coach rented

To enjoy the scenery that this island offers, we suggest starting with your group in a coach or minibus rented with driver around Fuerteventura at Parque Natural Corralejo (Corralejo Nature Park), which is situated on the north side of the island and consists of dunes, an area of lava flows called Malpaís (literally, “The Badlands”), and a volcano, la Montaña Roja (The Red Mountain). Its flora and fauna are fascinating. The National Monument of Malpaís de la Arena (Monumento Natural del Malpaís de la Arena) is a natural monument formed by volcanoes over 10,000 years. Visiting this park, you’ll think you’re on another planet.

Some things that no visitor should miss besides the famous Carnaval, are surfing and submarining to admire the ocean floor that was formed by volcanoes and a visit to Ajuy Fuerteventura Natural Monument (Fuerteventura Monumento Natural de Ajuy). This natural monument has ocean sediment from the time of the dinosaurs. You can still find places that date back to the time period when Africa and America started to separate, at which time the Canary Islands hadn’t even started to be formed yet.

Walk to Beaches in Fuerteventura

Being surrounded as it is by the ocean, this island offers a variety of beaches to enjoy the sun, the ocean, and the sand and has 265 km (165 mi) of coastline, mostly low-lying, and its beaches are among the most beautiful in the world. Its temperature is also very stable throughout most of the year. We suggest enjoying beaches, such as Corralejo Beach (Playas El Corralejo), which is situated in the middle of El Corralejo, and has white sand that was formed by broken shells and the remains of marine mammals and has tranquil waters, which tends to be full of tourists in the summertime; Cotillo Beach (Playas El Cotillo), which is very popular among surfers; or Jandia Beach (Playas de Jandia), where the best beaches on the island can be found and the beaches have white sand and shallow turquoise waters, making this a dream come true for beach lovers.
