Lobos Island

Puerto de Corralejo, Spain

The Basics

Located a short boat ride from Fuerteventura, Lobos Island is a popular day trip destination for Canary Islands visitors. Prebook round-trip ferry tickets or a water taxi and spend the day exploring the island independently, or opt for a guided experience.

Catamarans, yachts, or glass-bottomed boat cruises often include an onboard meal; some anchor offshore at Concha Beach so participants can snorkel, swim, fish, kayak, and try stand-up paddleboarding. Longer cruises combine a trip to Lobos Island with a visit to Lanzarote, Fuerteventura’s northern neighbor.

Sailing tour around the Lobos Island Natural Park / 4h
We had the most amazing tour to Lobos Island. The crew was extremely attentive and took very well care of us. They would go above and beyond to make your trip joyful and something to remember. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was spot on! We tried different water activities around Lobos. The crew would even let you sail and teach you about navigating.

Fuerteventura: Dolphin watching Lobos Island
Unfortunately didn't find any dolphins on our trip. As disappointing as it was expecially for the kids these things happen looking for wild animals. Still all had a great trip. Staff are great very friendly and helpful. Food was very nice. All drinks included also. Activities when we stopped where great snorkeling and kayaking where great. Definitely recommend

Sailing Catamaran Experience to Lobos Island
Can highly recommend this amazing boat trip for anyone visiting Fuerteventura! You are taken to just off the coast of the island of Lobos to snorkel, kayak and paddle board. On board, Nico and our skipper looked after us by giving us information about the island, keeping the drinks flowing and providing a delicious paella lunch! There’s only 12 on the catamaran so it’s never crowded, lots of room for people to sit, tan and dry off. The best part of our trip!

The day was amaizing! Thank you to Julian and Mariana for making our daughter's 6months small birthday so memorable! The paella was delicious, the photoshoot by Julian was top work we didn't expect, very kind and fun people. I would give it a hundred stars if I could. Marvelous!

Hiking is one of Lobos Island’s main draws. There are several paths—all have signs indicating the listed attractions. For a short walk, take a 10-minute stroll from the wharf to La Concha Beach (Playa de la Caldera). If you want to go farther, follow the path north toward the lighthouse; look out for the Caldera Mountain (Montaña de la Caldera), which, at more than 394 feet (120 meters), is the tallest point on the island.
