Corralejo is one of the few natural harbours of Fuerteventura. The anchorage has sand bottom and good holding. There's a government-owned marina and two ferry ports (line Fuerteventura - Lanzarote) operated by the company Ohlsen.

Charts

Weather

The bay is protected from the dominant trades. The odd southeasterly winds can sweep right into the harbour, creating an uncomfortable swell.

There is an old lighthouse on the northern tip of the island, providing spectacular views from the old lighthouse on the island's northern tip, you will have a beautiful view of the bays around the Punta de Papagayo of Lanzarote.
