We spent a day here - taking the boat from Corralejo at 15 euros per person return. You have to book, as boats are very busy, and say which time you want to return.
Once on the island you have a choice of a lovely sandy beach, or the lagoons where you can snorkel, or just walking across the volcanic landscape. There are toilets by the jetty, but do bring drinks and a picnic if staying all day, as there doesn't seem to be anywhere to buy food. We had a great day here and there are great views back to Fuerteventura.

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!

Wonderful island, well kept, clear crystal waters, beautiful sandy beaches. You can swim and snorkel in these lovely waters. Actually I went from puerto del carmen with the Biosfera jet, we even saw dolphins and flying fishes. Cool experience, everyone must do it.

In my opinion it was such an amazing adventure.
We got tickets for free from our hotel (won in Bingo game lol).
For sure it was good day, better than spending time on the swimming pool and doing nothing.

Tuesday 24h November and we took a boat trip from Corralejo to this Island, the journey time was about 15 minutes.

We had booked our return trip, which gave us 3 hours on the Island, to see and do as much as possible we had to walk at a brisk pace. Signposts along the way give rough estimates of the length of time to get from place to place.

We arrived at El Muelle, the landing pier from there our adventure on the Island began.

A couple of small things we noticed first, there is a small statue of 2 monk seals, which were once prevalent here, but are no longer. A small statue/bust to the writer and artist Josephina Pla, who was born on the Island. They are situated in front of the visitors centre. This contains photographs, a few artifacts and historic and geological information about the Island.

We headed off along the pathway towards the Faro Martino*(Lighthouse) a 50 minute walk from the landing pier.

Along the route El Puertito, the small port/village is  7 minutes walk from the Landing Pier. Another 18 minutes along the way are the saltmarshes Las Lagunitas*. Another 25 minutes later we arrived at Faro Martino*.

From here to the base of Montana de la Caldera * is another 30 minutes walk. Having climbed to the mountain top and got back to the path we headed to Playa De La Concha* which took 30 minutes. From here back to the landing pier was about 8 minutes.

When approaching the beach, there is another small pathway leading to Las Salinas, the Saltmines, we did not get here due to time constraints.

As we walked around the Island it was an opportunity to admire and be astounded by the rugged, dramatic scenery and geological formations. At times we did not see another human for long spells, so the only sounds we heard was the pathway under or feet and whatever nature was doing

Isla de Lobos,  has been a protected natural park since 2007 and visitors are requested not to leave the designated pathways.

There is no entrance fee here, the boat trip was €15 per person.

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.

Little paradise to enjoy on a sunny day. I had the pleasure to be able to visit the island on my very own, no other human on the path inside! After a very short time after my arrival, I was able to have my meal at the one and only local restaurant. The waiter was so nice, and I really enjoyed my fresh fish on this cute restaurant placed in front of the stunning sea. The water here has a different color, as on the main island, I could even find a free spot on the beach(I was probably so lucky because of the lack of tourists due ti the period). The trails inside of the island are really safe that you can even enjoy them with children... just remember to bring some water with you. Really challenging and relaxing, if you’re not used to such landscapes! The experience of being alone for hours in the middle of this island is just overwhelming. Such an experience. Just a note: you cannot have a public toilet in the whole island that is working only till 15,30 (during “winter time”): people is staying there till 17/18!!! That’s unacceptable. The one of the restaurant is not enough (and, at this time only one is working) and it closes at 15,30, too. I do agree in not letting other activities/restaurants developing out there... because if you cannot survive 5hours without buying fridge magnets you just do not deserve coming here.
