something for everyone (well, except lager louts !). The facilities on offer are numerous and, of course, there is the (almost) reliable sunshine, the beautiful white sand and turquoise sea.

The old heart of Corralejo remains, but is now just a small part of the new Corralejo. There was much building a few years ago, generally low rise and very tasteful, spreading south and hugging the coast, although there are parts often described as "Corralejo" a few miles inland.

Corralejo is now a developing resort with most of the facilities one would expect, but it is still a Canarian fishing village at heart.    It is, of course, a mecca for water sports of all kinds.    The restaurants and bars cater for absolutely every taste and nationality.    The Germans tend to head south, with its high-rise buildings, and the other nationalities to the more peaceful north, particularly to Corralejo and the fabulous National Park beaches just to the south of the village.
