It is in the municipality of La Oliva, surrounded to the north and east by the Atlantic Ocean, by dunes to the south, and by arid desert land to the west that leads to the western coast and El Cotillo. The volcanoes are raising just out of Atlantic Ocean, which makes the view magical.
Once a traditional fishing village, the town has grown significantly and today is one of the two main tourist towns on the island of Fuerteventura. Thanks to the large expat population, the town has a diverse population that varies from the local Spaniard, to the Irish, British, German, and Finnish people who have settled in the resort. You will find everything you need in Corralejo. Friendly coffee places, restaurants with local meals, groceries, and little shops. Everyone here is relaxed and positive, so if you need to unwind from the stress and buzz of the city, this is the right spot.
