You can bypass the capital Puerto del Rosario and follow the great north way to Corralejo. The route that you take from the airport that becomes the FV-1 is unforgettable. As it enters the Parque Natural de Corralejo, it cuts through dunes, so you have sand to the left and right of you. Once you arrive, head to the old harbor to see the beautiful whitewashed buildings.
Restaurant Rompeolas on the promenade allows you to watch the teenagers jump into the Atlantic from the wall. CoNomad has a roof terrace that you can use all year round. This community also offers a gateway to discovering and understanding the archipelago's underrated gastronomy. Although principally a resort, Corralejo started off as fishing village and retains much of the charms of its past life. As well as visiting tourists, many British and Italian expats have made a more permanent new life here.
