After just 20-minutes by boat from Corralejo, be amazed by the different tones of blue water whilst you disembark to this hidden corner of the Atlantic Ocean. Looking to the right of the harbor, you will find the path that takes you to El Puertito, an old fishing village next to a white-sand beach. At El Puertito, you can find the only restaurant on the island and a few buildings that were built before the island had been declared a Natural Park. Surrounded by tranquil waters, you will enjoy the island’s rich and exotic sea life. To the left of the harbor, you can find the most famous beach on this side of El Río. Take a swim in the calm and crystal clear, turquoise blue water or sunbathe in the fine sand, perfect for families with children, couples, young and old. 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”. Don’t forget to visit the nearby statue of Josefine Plá, the Spanish writer, poet and essayist, who was born on the island. Take a deep breath, a bottle of water and get ready to climb the highest peak of the island. The “La Caldera” mountain is a volcanic cone of relatively recent origin. Enjoy a fantastic view of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote from its 127-meter peak. Time stands still here as you take in the silence and colour of this splendid natural surrounding.  Whilst visiting the Northern part of the island, you will find the lighthouse, whose first lighthouse keeper was Josefine Plá’s father. Nowadays, the lighthouse works fully automatically and has been restored to its full splendour. Within the shade of this structure, stop for a rest while admiring the sea and Lanzarote with its volcanoes in the background. Admire the volcanic nature of the island’s interior and take a walk on the “Saladar (salt marsh) del Faro Martiño” and “Las Lagunitas”. More than 130 plant species and endemic birds live here, which has converted this idyllic paradise into a protected natural park.
