    Great day overall
    Visited here with my Husband, We had a great journey there and back on boat. Beaches are lovely, I prefer the beach to the right hand side as the water there is much more blues and fresh. We went to the beach on the left to start with. I actually got bitten on the side of my ankle in the sea. Not sure what by, all I know is I felt it latch on and I got this shock of a pain right through my ankle. I just panicked and shuck my leg to get what ever it was off and tried to get away. Upon getting out the water was when I noticed the blood and quite a few puncture holes in my skin. Although it was a bad moment and shuck me up a little. We still went on with our day and enjoyed it to the best we could

    A beautiful, rugged island that is also a National Park. The island is 15-20 minutes by regular ferry/boat. The island has a couple of nice beaches and a micro-sized village with 1 restaurant. The restaurant takes bookings, therefore if you want to eat, book when you arrive. Beyond the beach is a beautiful circular walk that would be achievable by most with an ordinary level of fitness. About 1.30 to 2 hours. Great destination for a walk and few hours sunbathing.

    Amazing and a must-visit
    We took a picnic, booked a ferry and went! You have to book your return journey which was a shame as we didnt know if we’d like it and we LOVED it! Clear warm water, stunning views. Highly recommended for either a short visit or a day!!!

    A few hours away from the hustle and bustle of Corralejo.
    We spent a lovely quiet few hours on Isla de Lobos today (10-Dec-23). Cheap water taxi there and back provide a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of Corralejo. Very few people on the beach and great weather with calm water, along with a nice picnic (no shops so bring plenty of fluid) made for a great afternoon.

    Very wild natural island
    The beauty of the island is its unique and natural landscape it really is quite staggering. Benefiting from giving few amenities and a charge to get there which ensures its never that busy. We took food and water and enjoyed a few hours lounging around and swimming in the crystal clear waters. The cafe does a fabulous Cortada! Highly recommend if you like out of the way, interesting places that aren't full of shops and cafes.....just glorious nature, with fish swimming by and little birds and lizards flashing by. Did think about walking up the Volcano but just to hot to try!

    Trip to Lobos Island
    Had a great half day at Lobos island, did not pre book just paid at the Harbour €15 per person. Stayed for 4 hours, did the full walk around the island which took around 2 hours then stayed at the beach & snorkelled. The little cove with the jetty is beautiful, great spot for a beer from the restaurant we didn’t eat but the food looked great.

    Lovely island
    Lovely island worth a trip. Don't wear sliders or flip flops take them in your bag. It's gravel tracks / paths. Not suitable for people with limited mobility. Nice beach on the island and natural pools. We got the glass bottom boat, with snorkeling for 25 mins with all the fish in the ocean! amazing experience. You also get a drink and return boat a few hrs later £25 euros each from corralejo harbor.

Took a day trip by ferry as we were told this would be the highlight of our holiday. It wasn’t. We paid €15 each for ferry. Firstly we had to book our ferry time back which is kind of annoying as until you’re there how long are you meant to know how long you’ll stay.
We were told there was a restaurant where we could get paella for €8, so we didn’t take food. We walked around the island which was pretty. Got to restaurant at 2pm and was told they only took reservations and the next slot was 4pm. The small takeaway opposite also said the same, no food until 3.30pm, even after queuing in the heat. No signage, nothing. We were starving, so managed on crisps as there was nothing else on offer. Went back at 3.30pm and kitchen was closed. Couldn’t get an early boat back as we booked the last one at 5pm. Went to beach but it’s so small you couldn’t find a space.
Toilets were in another area and they closed at 3pm. Why would the only toilets on the island close at 3pm when last boat goes at 5.15pm. Eventually got hugely overcrowded boat back.

We expected much better. If you are encouraging people to visit the island and making them stay all day then facilities need to be better, or at least pre warn when booking to take own food and drinks etc.

Took a trip to Lobos on the glass bottom boat although this was sold as the ferry- it cost us 15€ and took around 15 mins. Wonderful day trip and hike, with fantastic views. Would definitely recommend a trip to Isla de Lobos if you want to escape Corralejo. Did not make it to the restaurant unfortunately, would have given ourselves a bit longer than 3 hours on reflection.

You have to choose what time you want to return before you even get there. You are not issued with life vests or told where they are stowed. The boat was overcrowded. The island cafe is too small to accommodate all the visitors. They ran out of sandwiches. There are not enough bins.

Lovely island, we got a glass bottom boat over to the island and had a walk round. Stopped by a little swimming bay. Would recommend taking food/drink with you as there isn't a lot of places (we found a little cafe by chance). Wouldn't recommend it if you have mobility issues as wouldn't say the paths are very wheelchair friendly (being gravel paths)

Great place to visit, make sure you have plenty of water with you if you are visiting the island during summer time. You'll need a good few hour to be able to see the island properly. We went there with a half day tour which was a great way of learning about the history of island and get to swim in crystal clear waters surrounding the island to cool down. There are water taxis that you can use to get to the island if you wish. Toilet facilities are available in the island. If you wish to use the islands famous restaurant, I'd suggest to use the water taxi as you won't have enough time to sit there and enjoy the scenery if you are on a tour.

A lovely glass bottom boat trip out to Lobos Island a small nature reserve with rugged scenery, crystal clear waters and home of the island's ancient volcano Caldera measuring 120m whose summit we climbed! It took about 1 hour from the bottom of it to get up and down. Lots of steps and very rocky. We got the 10am crossing and was offered to be picked up at 2.20pm or 5pm. The crossing took 20 minutes. There are toilets on the island, a small visitor information area and very small restaurant. We found the young man serving in the restaurant to be very rude and abrupt. There is a beautiful beach area and the lagoons for swimming.

Lovely afternoon boat trip to visit Lobos island, 2 adults 5 children between 6&12.

I suppose what you get from this island depends on what you want, we explored the beach.

I'd loved to have walked and explored but the younger children wanted to climb on or explore everything it would have taken us all week and we only had a couple of hours.

Definitely take water and snacks with you, I've seen a few comments on here about a small restaurant/cafe/shop we saw nothing of the sort, no where at all to purchase anything from, and no where that looked as though it is/was but closed either 🤷‍♀️

The visitors center had some lovely information about the wildlife on the island and where the island gets its name. Toilets in the visitors center were ok, not the best/cleanest I've used but by no means the worst either.

The beach is beautiful, there are some lovely spaces to padel/swim in and some rocky areas/pools to be explored. Not sure why there were so many people feeling the need to be butt naked on a family beach with children running around but it's there for all to see.

Is it worth a visit????

Yes it's a lovely space but ensure you take supplies, I can imagine it getting very busy in the summer.

And you do not need to fill In the authorisation/permission application for it, this is not being checked at all as we were informed by one of the local groups selling boat trips over there as we were struggling due to apparently only being able to take 2 children to one adult on the forms. Apparently not been checked since the pandemic.

Would I go again????
NO. It's a beautiful beach don't get me wrong but there are loads of beautiful beaches around fuerteventura and the other canary islands and therefore not really worth the boat trip costs in my opinion. Maybe if you were planning/able (due to boats) to spend a lot more time on the island so you could explore the walk route and beach, but then you also have to consider how much you may need to carry due to no shop/restaurant.

If you've never been here it's worth the visit via a ferry at 15 Euros. When there it's very barren. Trails have been marked out which you need to stick to. Inaccessible to a wheelchair. We had flip flops which were OK but recommend you take some proper footwear. There is restaurant on the island. We didn't know what to expect. But I can tell you. Its as basic as it can get. The menu is very limited. We had the hamburger which was of poor quality. Some kind of colsaw which was so so salty and some crisps. A strange combination I know. The price was OK. The food ok for a snack but don't expect too much. Some great walks and sites. Some amazing lagoons and beaches. Like I say it's worth the visit just so you can say you've been there.

The boat trip with the ferry went smooth both ways. The islet had an interesting geology and trails were well marked. Lizards and birds are to be found on the trails. There are especially a lot of small birds in Puertito as tourists have spoiled them with food. The toilet in the port was closed already at 3 p.m., the only other toilet is next to the restaurant in puertito.
Take water with you and food, the restaurant provide also drinks and meals.

Lobos

Windy volcanic rock a 15 min boat ride from Corralejo. Unfriendly people, the visitor shed was closed so no information about the island and no working toilets - unacceptable.
There is a small restaurant/ cafe with a toilet but only for customers and you have to sign out a key.
However the fish being prepared was fresh so probably lovely if you eat there.

Several rough walking trails so wear good shoes

Beautiful beach with soft sand and lagoon with great swimming.

There have been some interesting Roman archeological finds but as the visitor centre was not open on arrival and when it was, there was no info available in English we had to wait until later to find out more.

Worth a visit as the scenery is stunning but this is a national park and they could do better to inform visitors.
