Grandes Playas de Corralejo

Some of the most breathtaking beaches in the Canaries (maybe in the world), and the most similar to a desert you can find in the islands, competing with Maspalomas. South of Corralejo town we find this Natural Park, an inmense sand field with large dunes that go from the sea to the center of Fuerteventura island.

How to get there

Road FV-1 runs along the east coast of Fuerteventura towards Corralejo. The last kilometers cross the Natural Park of Corralejo Dunes, in parallel to these beaches. The only car parks are in the hotels area, but you can pull over on the hard shoulders, taking care of not getting trapped in the sand.

The beach

8 km long and 2 km wide, Corralejo beaches go beyond the usual image of a beach. Although they are in fact several beaches, it is very difficult, if not imposible, to find the limits between them.
From the north, the names of the different sections are:
  • El Médano
  • El Pozo
  • El Viejo
  • El Caserón
  • El Bajo Negro
  • Playa Larga
  • Los Martos
  • El Dormidero
  • El Moro
  • El Rosadero
  • Alzada
All of them are similar, with fine white sand and turquoise waters, a typical postcard image. Lobos island, included also in the Natural Park, is visible in front of the beach. In the background, the volcanoes in northern Fuerteventura. Strong winds are the only drawback (unless you are a windsurfer). In spite of waves, swimming is not very dangerous.
The original lava field under the sand appears in the shore, with areas where walking into the water can be a bit complicated. Of course, the black stones used by the round walls are made of those volcanic rocks.


The touristic resort of Corralejo is located on the norther end. There are several other areas along the beach with lifeguards, beach bars or sun lounges. The rest of the beach is virtualy unspoilt and the only manmade element are the stone circles to protect from the wind.


Nudity is normal as soon as we walk away from the most touristic areas. In general, there is a peaceful coexistence with textiles: wearing clothes or not is entirely up to you. You should only avoid walking nude in front of the areas were people concentrate, but there are kilometres of beach for you.


Other nude beaches in the area

I like:
  • Immense beach, one would say it is infinite
I don't like:
  • The huge hotels in this natural place
  • The strong wind, but dunes and stone walls make it bearable

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
