After reading such good reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try it out on our first trip to Fuerteventura. I'm so glad we did, as we had a great night with some great music. The bar has a chilled atmosphere and the musicians are of an excellent standard. They sing really well too. Dave Headley has a great sense... More

Because of other reviews we gave the Rock Island Bar a try. The solo artist was very good, his version of Kings of Leon 'Your Sex Is On Fire' was tremendous. Louis Walsh would have commented he made the song his own. The atmosphere was good too. I was surprised how small the bar is; also surprised about their quantity... More

My wife and I try to visit Corralejo once a year and always end up in the Rock Island Bar. You always get a warm welcome from Gary and the team and the atmosphere is really chilled!! The music is first class and not too "in your face", being fully acoustic. Be warned though, if you drink spirits there's no... More

Went along to this bar, and had a superb night. Excellent prices, intimate setting and excellent live music, who were playing the next night, and promised a new routine! So we went again the next night and slightly disappointed as the live band played exactly the same songs...but still worth a visit as the barmaid was lovely and had good... More

Found this cosy bar whilst on route to a nearby restaurant, what a gem, cosy, warm and friendly with the added bonus of fantastic music unlike most of the other small venues in Corralejo. The musicians were brilliant and would have paid to listen to them, definitely worth a visit.

We only found this gorgeous little place by accident whilst on holiday in Corralejo one Monday evening, dodging the rain and what a find! Absolutely gorgeous place, cosy atmosphere, the warmest welcome by Mandy at the bar, and Johnny was sitting in the doorway when we arrived made us feel right at home. The open mic session there was excellent,... More
