Isla de los Lobos
Just offshore to the north of Corralejo, between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, is the tiny island of Isla de los Lobos, named after the once abundant monk seals (lobos marinos). For things to do in Fuerteventura this little island has a lot to offer. Divers, snorkelers, surfers and sporting fishermen claim the clear waters although for those slightly less adventurous, barbecue excursions and swimming trips are enhanced by sailing across in glass-bottomed cruisers. This islet is great for those wanting to do a spot of walking as the island is classed as a nature reserve and visitors are able to walk around it within a few hours.

At the southern end of the island, enjoy a once in a lifetime experience in an authentic submarine which dives down to depths of 30m where the clear waters allow you to study the local marine life. These submarine tours are a great choice for those looking for one of the more fantastic, memorable and alternative things to do in Fuerteventura.
