Beautiful island only a 10 minute boat ride away from the north of Fuerteventura.

We visited the El Puertito beach closest to the restaurant which is around an eight minute walk for from where you land via water taxi.

You can walk to this beach / area with flip-flops, but beach shoes or trainers would be more comfortable.

El Puertito has many small patches of glorious white sand where you can pitch up, but be warned a) there is no shade/parasols and b) the tide comes in from around 1/2pm so choose your position wisely. The lagoons surrounding Puertito are beautiful and allow for some snorkeling if that's your thing (just don't expect to see thousands of fish!).

I'd also recommend taking your own drink and food, as there is a small restaurant by El Puertito, but it may not be open (it was open when we visited in mid-June).

The restaurant serves traditional seafood dishes such as paella and freshly fried fish caught literally minutes away. We had a three person paella and two local fish that came to 36 euros in total. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking as well.

All in all, a fantastic and beautiful location, but plan wisely and don't expect to have every amenity on your doorstep.

My husband and I booked a day trip to the island whilst on holiday in Fuerteventura and were so pleased we did. It is beautiful!!! So unspoilt as it is uninhabited, with only one restaurant on the island. We were advised by the lady who sold us our boat tickets to book lunch at the restaurant as soon as we arrived, which we did. The restaurant itself is a little local place, so nothing glamourous, but no need to be when the food is as good as it is! We arrived at the restaurant at 11.30am, ordered our lunch (fried fish and paella) for 2.30pm and went off to a little secluded cove behind the restaurant. It was so peaceful and sheltered, so the water was very calm (great if you have kids). We spent a few hours relaxing before returning to the restaurant for lunch where it had been prepared as ordered, and couldn't have tasted fresher. The grilled fish had no sauce at all, and didn't need it as it was so moist and fresh, it was delicious, obviously caught that morning. We couldn't argue with the price either, fried fish, paella, Russian salad and four small beers - 28 Euro's! Less than the boat tickets cost! We'll be sure to visit again on our next hol!

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)

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.

After 4 times being in Fuerteventura we eventually decided to visit Isla de Lobos. We took a fast boat from Corraleja harbour (the boat called Baracuda).. We spent few hors there on the beach and in the local restaurant. Only one think that I didn't like on the island it's a cleanness of the beach. Lots of rubbish and even dead bird was there. In generally speaking, I would recommend visit the place and you definitely would find something interesting to do for yourself such as swimming, hiking, food in restaurant and etc.

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.

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.

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.

it's a nice trip for the price I paid at the ferry. if you go in the summer, try to get your ticket in the morning because it is quite hot. the route is almost 2 hours on foot, and the interval at which the boat comes is 4 hours, and you must stop and take a swim in the natural pool before returning

Not a very scenic island. Full of rocks and lizards, you'll need trainers or stiff walking shoes for this adventure. I went with my 7-year old and he hated it. Nothing to see apart from more rocks. No beach just rocks. And lizards.
Perhaps if you are snorkelling this is the ideal excursion but for a walk around I would advise to use the money for a nice meal somewhere instead.
