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.

Visit Lobos Island with Snorkel Activity from Corralejo, Fuerteventura
The water was bluer than the sky. Super great place to chill, just wish the snorkeling would have been on a reef. We stopped in calm waters for the beginners but flippers and more interesting areas would have made a better experience.

Sailing tour around the Lobos Island Natural Park / 4h
Had an amazing sailing trip. We actually did some sailing instead of motoring all the way. Captain and crew were great, very hospitable. They took pictures, made a great lunch and knew much about the history of the island.

Hiking on Lobos Island

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.
