Stunning beauty, very quiet. Bring food and water - no restaurant just an information centre. bring snorkelling gear or have a swim or walk the beaches.

We visited the island with dinghies from the Xavier 111 that we were cruising on. The visit to the island and snorkeling there was great. The seal lions are very playful and dive and swim all around you. We also saw many Blue-footed boobies and frigate-birds. It was a great place to visit. The water temperature was 24 degrees C...

We booked a trip out to the Island via our tour rep. We got the ferry easily and had good weather, taking note of previous reviews to take a hat and water - definitely good advice. We were advised to stop at the small tourist information centre to use the facilities as there are no others available when walking on... More

A nice little boat ride out to the island with the opportunity to stay all day. Take your walking shoes or trainers,swimwear and picnic and you should have a lovely time. We went in February and once we got off the boat as most went to the right we went to the left and did not see anyone again for... More

You can get a ferry which only takes minutes from Corralejo harbour. We took mountain bikes on the boat to island and it took about an hour to cycle around the whole island and well worth a trip there. If you want to make a day of it there is also a lagoon for swimming and a restaurant but I... More

The volcanic Island of Los Lobos lies just off the northern tip of Fuerta, a 15 min boat ride away. Once a base for pirates the whole island is now a nature reserve. A walk round the Island takes about an hour or two, with a break half way round at the lighthouse and a welcome dip in the sheltered... More

Short boat ride over to the island, the only life you will see is the fishing bar where you can have a drink and meal, the island is like going back in time and it well worth a visit.

We took a boat trip there with our bikes. Great place for hiking. We were biking as well but since there had been raining some parts of the trails were not that suitable for the bicicleta. Had a decent lunch at the small restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation there when arriving to the island. Definitely worth visiting if... More

Bought ferry tickets from the travelling agency rep and return ticket is 15euros/person. There are not much facilities on the island, but we knew this beforehand- thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers. We bought picnic lunch with us. There is a restroom facility when you hop off the ferry. It is visitors center and closes at 15:00. The hiking path is very... More
