Corralejo Natural Park is an
area of unique characteristics, which has a field of sand
(dunes) and geomorphological unit representative and of great
scientific interest, also forms a landscape
of exceptional values in good condition.
These dunes have an organic
origin because they come from the disintegration and
spray and bivalve shells and other marine
organisms with rigid external skeleton. Under the dunes are the
typical "badlands", this accumulation of volcanic rocks of very
sharp edges and edges that are completely hidden by several
meters thick with fine white sand.
It has an area of 2,600 ha, all
covered with fine white sand into dunes, and borders the north
east coast of Fuerteventura, which are long
beaches with turquoise water.
is very easy to access this Natural Park as the road linking
the port of Rosario to Corralejo, crosses (PV-1). On this
road you can park your car and observe in situ the big dunes of
this area, plus some of the best beaches on the island.
By accessing this Natural Park from Puerto del Rosario, the
FV-1, we leave to the right the sea, where we find a series
of beautiful beaches of white sand and turquoise water (see
Section Beaches of the Web), and left is a large expanse
of sand dunes formed by organic nature and favored by the desert
climate that dominates the island.
