Weekend in Corralejo

My favourite Canary Islands resort: Weekend in Corralejo

Ever since family holidays to the Canaries in the 1990s I have loved these islands in the sun. I visit at least once a year and have spent plenty of time on all seven main islands as well as several of the smaller islands.

But there is one resort that keeps pulling me back, Corralejo in the far north of Fuerteventura. I love Corralejo because it is not just a tourist resort, it is a real town where visitors mix with locals. The main street along the seafront turns to sand here, so few walks into town don’t involve getting my toes in the sand, and the local community keeps restaurant standards high.

Find out more about this fantastic Canarian resort in my piece for the Times on a Weekend in Corralejo.

The Canaries are known for their large-scale resorts, all multiple swimming pools and vast buffets.

But the Canaries are also home to an increasingly eclectic range of boutique accommodation, from stylish haciendas with sea views to rustic inns surrounded by mountain peaks.

I was recently asked to compile a list of the best for the Times. Read my article on where to stay in the Canary Islands on Times Travel.
