Fuerteventura is the oldest of the Canary Islands, formed by a volcanic eruption 20million years ago, and it still remains a fairly barren, deserted island today, at least in the Corralejo area. Depending on what you’re looking for, this could be the perfect long-weekend getaway with nothing but beautiful beaches, a great hotel and great food at your fingertips.
Where to stay:
Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real
in Corralejo – breathtaking views, great service, and tastefully decorated – this is the perfect getaway spot for a romantic weekend away.
Where to eat:
Restaurants in this area generally are not very fancy, but the food is delicious.
Restaurante Avelino (c/. Galicia, 35) – run by the sweetest older gentleman who goes out of his way to ensure his clients are well taken care of. The jamon Iberico and paella were excellent and they even put together a great simple salad. Eat outside so you can enjoy views of the ocean.
As always, have a great trip!
