A distance of about 40 kilometres separates Fuerteventura airport in the Canary Islands from the dreamy beaches of Corralejo –a true surf paradise in Spain– as well as from its adjacent white sand dunes, declared a biosphere reserve by the UNESCO.
Upon your arrival in the island, it will be rather simple to transfer from Fuerteventura ariport to your hotel in Corralejo, no matter if you choose to use public transport or if you prefer the car rental option. Once you have collected your bags and find yourself in the non-restricted area, walk past “Caffé di Fiore” and pay attention to the signposting: public bus line 03 (Las Salinas-Caleta-Puerto del Rosario) stops right outside the terminal.
It is mandatory that you travel to the capital city Puerto del Rosario in Fuerteventura in order to take the 06 line to Corralejo, as there is no direct service from the airport. This first journey will take approximately 15 minutes and a single ticket costs 1.45 euros. You are advised to ask the driver which direction the bus is going, as it stops there when travelling towards both Las Salinas and the capital.
Puerto del Rosario bus station is the last terminus of this route and the place where you will get on bus 06 towards Corralejo Bay. The single ticket costs 3.40 and it takes around 40 minutes to reach the final destination. The unparalleled landscape of the dunes announces the proximity of the sea, and getting off at the last stop (the quay) will allow us to enjoy lovely views of Lobos Island, a delightful meal at a fine restaurant or a nice stroll along the promenade.
If you are carrying your own surf equipment, you may prefer to hire a van or car and get around the island freely, even though you should know that Corralejo has many water sports related schools and rentals, being even home to the popular Quicksilver surf camp. Provided that you choose the car rental option, there is a wide array of establishments of this kind before you leave Fuerteventura airport , opposite the aforementioned “Caffé di Fiore” café outside the arrivals lounge. Among them you will find Top Car AutoReisen, Avis, Cicar, Hertz, Payless, Europcar and Goldcar.
