Wandering Along The Pale Dunes Of Corralejo Natural Park
Located just off the North African coastline, the island of Fuerteventura is characterised by a scenic panorama of white dunes along its beaches. One of the most picturesque parts of the island is Corralejo Natural Park – the largest dunescape in the Canary Islands, situated in the region of La Oliva in the northeast of the island, just up the coast from SENTIDO H10 Playa Esmeralda. A visit to the park or a leisurely walk along the dunes, which has been a protected area since 1982, is best combined with a swim in the crystal-clear waters to absorb as much as possible from this intrepid landscape.
As we approach the natural park by car, massive waves crash along the shoreline to one side of the road, while on the other a rugged dunescape almost appears to falling into the ocean. We park in a nearby spot and prepare ourselves for a sandy walk along the dunes. An impressive panoramic photo motif from afar, the dunes appear like white waves in a serene painting, the curves and wave-like structures in the sand with the light-blue sky as the background.
In some spaces, the golden landscape is dotted by singular native plants which grow in-between the distant hills such as two bush species suitable for living in a dry climate like the dunes. Additionally, the dunes are a protected bird nesting area. If you look closely, you can even spot Montaña Roja, one of the island’s many volcanoes, far off in the distance.
Measuring around 3000 hectares in total, the park is not only a favourite spot among sun lovers but also an ideal spot for surfing and flying kites, thanks to the fresh breeze that streams through the dunes to the beach. No wonder that this area is also famous for its yearly Kite Festival, which has attracted kite lovers from all around the world since 1987. What makes this area even more interesting is that the dunes originally stem from the ocean floor. One visible reference to the past takes the form of the small seashells, which can be found in the dusty sand. When you look closely, you can see fine grains of sand weaving their way across the road. Still today, it is said that the dunes shift several metres every year.
After walking along the serene dunescape – which is around 11 km long – cross the street and you enter an entirely different landscape with black rocks and stones. Walk along the beach to feel in the fresh breeze. On sunny, clear days, the magnificent view extends to the nearby small island of Lobos or even Lanzarote, which is only a short 8 km ferry ride away – all of which makes Corralejo Natural Park a superb sight, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the wild nature of the Canary Islands.
