All aboard! The catamaran will set sail from Corralejo, Fuerteventura, heading north. Get ready for three days on the Fuerteventura – Lanzarote – La Graciosa- Lobos Cruise! You will enjoy impressive natural landscapes, beautiful sunsets and recreation.
The islands and islets of the Canary archipelago are true tourist gems located in the Atlantic.
Day 1 Cruise Lanzarote – La Graciosa- Lobos: Lanzarote
Sailing from the port of Corralejo, we go to our sister island – Lanzarote. From the north of Fuerte ventura we can appreciate a very different landscape from our beloved island of Fuerteventura. From afar we can see the traditional white houses of the island of Lanzarote.
We land at Playa de Papagayo, the most popular beach on the island, which is located in the south of Lanzarote. Its golden sand and intense turquoise blue waters create a contrast of beautiful beauty.
After having enjoyed the water activities with our Kayak and Paddle Surf, we go to the capital of the island – Arrecife. You will enjoy a remarkable contrast after being in a place as wild as Playa de Papagayo.
Arrecife is the Capital of Lanzarote since the second half of the 19th century. It has become the administrative and commercial center of the island.
Then we go to the Marina de Arrecife, a marina for yachts and cruises, with restaurants, bars and trendy shops. There you will enjoy spectacular international food!
Arrecife offers us a lot of culture and history. We can find there among others: The Historic Quarter, the Castillo de San Gabriel and the International Museum of Contemporary Art. This is the only city we visited during our cruise.
Day 2 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: La Graciosa Island
Now we leave from the port of Arrecife towards the north of Lanzarote, contemplating its rocky coast. After having passed the spectacular Risco de Famara, just beyond Punta Fariones, a pod of dolphins welcomes us just at the moment when we begin to see La Graciosa. What a happiness to be able to see them in their natural environment!
The coast of Lanzarote is very rich in marine fauna. With a little luck you can see a sperm whale or a whale during the tour. As if the welcome from the dolphins was not enough, the buzzer begins to sound. The result is a sierra fish, which we will have for dinner tonight!
Finally, we cross the last section called El Río that is between Lanzarote and La Graciosa.
La Graciosa is known as the Eighth Island of the 7 Canary Islands. Only in 2018 was it recognized as such. With its white houses and sandy streets, it has a population of 700 people. It is one of the few places in Europe where roads are not yet built. This makes the island still virgin, and free of mass tourism.
La Graciosa surprises us with its beauty, nature and silence.
The beauty of its exotic and solitary beaches captivates to a point of relaxation that is not easily achieved elsewhere.
Day 3 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: Islet of Lobos
On the third day our cruise arrives at the islet of Lobos. Named for the large number of sea lions that once populated its shores. It is a beauty of volcanic nature, a natural space for birds and other animals on the island.
Then we landed at the Lobos anchorage to spend our last night of the cruise. The water here is crystal clear and shallow, making it easy to see the seabed.
In the morning we have breakfast with a wonderful sunrise and we head back to the port of Corralejo. It is a short journey: about 15 – 20 minutes.
Enjoy 3 wonderful days on a cruise
It has been a wonderful 3 days. But as they say “all good things come to an end soon.” Until next time!
