This beach is commonly known as “La Concha” (the Shell) because of its shape, although the official name is La Caleta because of the limescale oven that played an important role in the construction of the “Martiño” lighthouse. From here you can see in the distance the dunes of Corralejo, the contours of Fuerteventura and when turning your back to the sea, appreciate the unique mountain “La Caldera”.

From beginning to end this was an amazing experience. Luka was excellent. His knowledge, information and general personality added to the whole experience and he deserves a lot of credit. Although it took a while to find the dolphins Luka and his colleague did not give up and it was worth the wait! Such a fantastic experience to get so close to them. The added bonus was also seeing a giant turtle! All in all a great trip and I would recommend it - and Luka! - to everyone! Thank you.

Great morning out. 45 minutes to Lobos, where you then moor for a few hours. You can spend an hour on the island, or just chill on the boat and snorkel/swim/float about for a few hours. Paella lunch and unlimited drinks. Nice vibe. I had to chase up pick-up details the night before (and wasn’t even on the passenger itinerary on the day of the trip, so glad I did!) but other than that it was all good.

Easy to get tickets and access to the ferry both on the way out and on the way back. The island is a picturesque place to enjoy tranquility, good money and good photos. To eat you have to reserve, in the little port there are several small places. A good experience

Wonderful experience, very friendly staff and short trip, but very comfortable. The island is small but it is worth climbing the mountain and its views, stopping at its beach to cool off

The ferry had enough space for everyone, and was also on time which was good. The facilities on board were good. Overall, a pleasant experience.
