Most guests of Ohana Guesthouse ask for help and advice to organize the visit to the beaches of Corralejo. Your doubts about which are the most interesting beaches and how much time to devote to see them so as not to miss any wonder for lack of information.
That is why I created this post that I dedicate to all the guests of the Ohana Guesthouse and that I hope will help them and allow them to organize their visit in the best conditions. Above all I include some secrets that I have not found in any publication and that only the local population knows.
One can not leave Corralejo without seeing the beaches of the Natural Park of the Dunes of Corralejo which are the beach of Flag Beach, La Entubadera, the beach between hotels, El donkey beach and El Moor beach. The other beaches that are in the center of Corralejo, in the town, are more popular, less interesting but are a great solution for the day that you do not want to move and have all the services for those who like to have everything nearby, while in the rest of beaches that I advise you are less frequented and with few services.
Do not miss seeing the beaches of El Cotillo which are 30 minutes by car from Corralejo and the Isla de lobos.
So there are three areas that can be divided into three days of visit, the beaches of the natural park of the dunes of Corralejo, the beaches of El Cotillo and Isla de Lobos.
View these three areas, and in addition to the beaches of downtown Corralejo there are many beaches in the north of the island. This area is not so paradisiacal, that is, it does not have the views that we all recognize as a Caribbean paradise, turquoise blue water and sand fine white. But the northern part of the island, that is to say all that remains above Corralejo and Cotillo are wilder beaches, lots of rock and little sand, lots of waves, it's another story but if you have time you could go to visit the town Majanicho and so you take a tour of the beaches surfer.
The Beaches of the Natural Park of the Corralejo dunes are just outside the town of Corralejo, starting just 800 meters from the right side of the town of Corralejo, that is, going down Calle Pedro and Guy Vandaele in the direction of Puerto del Rosario. The first beach you will find is Flag Beach, the kite and windsurfing beach par excellence, it is quickly identified because there is a lot of activity of kites in the air on windy days, in case there was no wind you could identify it because in the same On the beach there is a kind of container with flags that houses the Flag Beach School of water sports, the car is parked on the same road and it is accessed by walking through the dunes to the beach, leaving the hotel on the right.
Following the road to Corralejo you will arrive at a roundabout and from there you have to access the Riu Tres Islas Hotel, park your car in the parking lot and walk along a path through the dune to the beach of Entubadera, there is a very nice beach bar and lots of activity. Surf the days of waves.
From the parking lot but this time leaving the hotel on the left you will find a beach, among hotels, more touristy but very pleasant and with a must-see feature. The days with strong winds of northern component, ie with winds coming from the left side, here on this beach the wind will be much less annoying because the hotel protects you from the wind so this beach is visited by families well informed that look for calmer and more comfortable waters.
Continuing the journey towards Puerto del Rosario you will find El Burro beach a few kilometers away. This is a beach frequented by kiters, surfers and windsurfers on days of wind and waves, but if you have calm days the beach is very beautiful too, It is parked on the same road and from the parking lot to the right is the beach of El Burro but if you go to the left you have an immense beach with a giant dune.
Following the road you will find a few kilometers away the last jewel of this natural park, it is called El Moro beach, here you will find a lot of surfing during the days of waves.
