My favourite road in Fuerteventura




Although there are some lovely roads to drive on in Fuerteventura, without doubt, my absolute favourite road in Fuerteventura is to drive through the Corralejo Dunes along the coast road. It runs from its southern most end at Parque Holandes along the coast and right through the wonderful Dunes Natural Park to Corralejo at its northern end.

Whenever I drive on this road, seeing the landscape, the beautiful clear turquoise sea and the beautiful white sand dunes, it always reminds me why I came to live in Fuerteventura.

I am sure it must rank as one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Well certainly in the Canary Islands anyway.

The road gives access to all the dunes beaches, which are the most beautiful of the beaches in Fuerteventura. You can read about them, and watch a video, in my post The Dunes Beaches of Corralejo.

The plan was to close this road to through traffic once the new road fully opened. Now it seems it will remain open. You should be aware that they have reduced the speed limit to 50kph. This applies along the entire stretch but that means you will have more time to enjoy the view.

Be careful when you get to the first few beaches by the roads (coming from the south) as people often just back out from their parking spots without looking properly.

    Hi JP

    Just got back from 2 wonderful weeks holiday in Fuerteventura. Thanks to your videos, we saw nearly all of the island and all the places you recommended. I agree with you though, the dunes road was my favourite – what a beautiful place. We found Correlejo laid back and very beautiful with Lobos and Lanzarote as a backdrop. Your videos and photography are so well done and greatly improved our holiday as first timers in Fuerteventura. Cannot wait to go back.

    Incidentally, I come from rainy Higham Ferrers – much improved now since they have finally opened the Rushden Lakes retail park, with cinema, bowling, mini golf, shops, lake side restaurants and walks around the lake. Downside is that its very busy – I long for the open spaces of Fuerteventura. We drove through Villa Verde and La Olivia – lovely villages with a mountain backdrop. Love the long straight roads that take you to Betancuria. What a great place to live Jp.

      Hi Janet. Give my, I can’t say love, to Irthlingborough next time you go by. Typically they built the retail park after we left. I sued to sit at the Skew Bridge roundabout doing paperwork looking out for drunk drivers at nights sometimes. I am glad you had a great holiday and flattered that my videos helped. Take care.
