Ferry Lobos express: What to see on the Island?
“El Puertito” – The Little Harbour
“La Concha” Beach
To the left of the harbour 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 lime scale 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.
Mountain “La Caldera”
Take a 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 metres peak. Time stands still here, you can “listen” to the silence and the colour blue takes on a whole new meaning while the light wraps it all together.
The lighthouse “Martiño”
In the northern part of the island, you find the lighthouse, whose first lighthouse keeper was Josefine Plá’s father. He was followed by his assistant Antonio Hernández, better known as ‘Antoñito El Farero’ (Antoñito the lighthouse keeper). He and his family were the last people who lived in the lighthouse until the year 1968. Nowadays, the lighthouse works fully automatically and has been restored to its full splendour. Its shade is without any doubts the best place for having a rest, looking at the sea and Lanzarote with its volcanoes in the background.
The Nature of the Island
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 tan 130 plant species and endemic birds live here, which has converted this idyllic place into a protected natural park. With our hiking excursions your senses will be awakened to the island’s wildlife.
