Corralejo is the largest resort in Fuerteventura. The main attraction of Corralejo are the beaches, the largest of which is over 10 kilometres long praising for its bright and clear sand and a very gentle descent to the ocean.

The waters around Corralejo are exceptionally clear and have an intense blue shade.
There are several beautiful beaches in the Pajara in Fuerteventura. On the east side, the beaches are white and sandy with calm waters.
