Los Lobos

Los Lobos

La Isla de los Lobos is located halfway between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. This popular little island is volcanic by nature and perfect for hiking and swimming.

It's the perfect getaway during he summer months when life on Fuerteventura can sometimes get too hectic.

The islands name means wolves in Spanish but the origin relates to sea rather than land mammals. Up until the 19th century monk seals, also colloquially known as sea wolves, colonized the island.

To get to the island, take the boat from Corralejo; it's a very short journey (just 2kms). For more details visit www.bluedelfin.com
There's a nature reserve on the island that's incredibly peaceful and has superb views to Fuerteventura.

La Isla de Los Lobos has a coastline that stretches for just over 13 kms and has a surface area of just over 467 hectares. It's located in an area known as the Bocaina Channel, eight kms from Lanzarote.

One of the island's main attractions is the fascinating range of birds and plants, some of which can't be seen anywhere else on the planet.
