Welcome to Isla de Lobos

It is well worth taking a trip to the islet from Corralejo. Once you’ve disembarked you can go for a short walk, order lunch at the quayside restaurant (reserve when you arrive if you intend to lunch there) and head for the pleasant, small beach. Hiking around the island takes around an hour – stick to the marked paths. There is also a small interpretation centre with some interesting exhibits on the island's history and geography.

Take your binoculars as it’s a popular birdwatching destination, plus you may spot a shark or two, which are common in the waters around Lobos. The island is also great for surfing, so bring your board and don’t worry, the sharks are hammerheads – a distant (harmless) relation to Jaws. The island is also popular with divers and snorkellers. A quirky way to see the island is on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP). Red Shark offers day trips which include transport on a Zodiac, equipment rental and a brief lesson (per person €65).

The cheapest and fastest way to get here is on the Grupo Lobos ferry. Departing Corralejo at 10am, 11am, noon, 1pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm and 5.15pm, it leaves the island at 10.15am, 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.45pm, 4pm and 5pm. You can also take a minicruise to the island in a glass-bottomed boat.
