Fuerteventura I Corralejo brights

Call me Maddie
After the Lanzarote winds, Fuerteventura surely seemed like a safe haven, which is actually quite paradoxical since Fuerteventura's literal translation from spanish language is "strong winds".
When we arrived at Fuerteventura the weather so, so beautiful - the sun was super warm and the little wind we had was actually quite pleasant as it gave the opportunity not to get too hot to a level when it feels uncomfortable. We spent five days in Lanzarote and four days in Fuerteventura, which actually was enough, since this island didn't have that many sights, though, it certainly didn't lack beautiful beaches. I mean, honestly, the beaches at Fuerteventura looked like straight out of a Bounty commercial - long and beautiful with white sand and crystal clear water. :) I have decided t not post the  Canary island  posts in a chronological order, but I still hope you'll have the chance to feel the beauty of these two islands regardless.
In Fuerteventura we chose to stay in the second biggest city of the island, at Corralejo. The little city surely had it's charm and I loved the fact that it was very lively, due to the fact that it surely attracted a lot of tourists (including us) to stay there. Our hotel was situated on the main street, which was a good thing since everything was very close, especially the beach, only a minute was needed to be right next to the ocean. I loved the fact that the city had many small shops, beach bars and ice cream places :) Corralejo is a vibrant city not only because a lot of tourists decide to stay there, but also because it is filled with young adventure seekers who love water. Literally every other person who I saw was a surfer. If I would have had more time and money, I would surely have signed up for learning a water sport in one of the many schools they had - would love to learn stand up paddling, or in short SUP.

Pēc Lanzarotes vējiem, Fuerteventura likās kā miera oāze, kas ir paradoksāli, ņemot vērā, ka salas nosaukuma tiešais tulkojums no spāņu valodas ir "stiprie  vēji". Fuerteventurā mūs sagaidīja brīnišķīgs laiks, silta saule un vēja pūsmiņa, kas pārmaiņas pēc bija patīkama, jo nedaudz atveldzēja no karstā laika. Lanzarotē mēs pavadījām 5 dienas, savukārt Fuerteventurā 4 dienas, kas bija arī pilnībā pietiekoši ņemot vērā to, ka Fuerteventurā bija krietni mazāk apskates objektu, savukārt, krietni vien vairāk pludmaļu. Un, ak vai, pludmales bija tādas kādas rāda Bounty reklāmās - garas, ar baltām smiltiņām un dzidru, jo dzidru okeāna ūdeni. :) Savus rakstus par Kanāriju salām esmu sagatavojusi ne hronoloģiskā secībā, bet ceru, ka tas jums netraucēs tos uztvert un caur bildēm kaut vai nedaudz "sagaršot" Kanāriju salu burvību.
Fuerteventurā par galveno apmešanās vietu izvēlējāmies Corralejo, kas ir salas otrā lielākā pilsētiņa (aiz Jandia/Morro Jable). Pilsētiņa noteikti ir ļoti šarmanta un dzīvīga, jo šo vietu izvēlas ļoti daudzi tūristi - netrūkst ne mazo veikaliņu, ne arī foršu pludmales bāriņu, ne arī mazu saldējuma kafejnīcu. Mēs dzīvojām pilsētiņas centrā, uz galvenās ielas, bet visforšāk bija tas, ka pludmale atradās vien minūtes gājienā no viesnīcas :). Corralejo noteikti ir ne tikai tipiska tūristu apmešanās vieta, bet to noteikti ir iecienījuši arī ūdens sporta mīļotāji, jo katrs otrais cilvēks, kas man nāca pretī bija vai nu sērfotājs, vai nu kaitotājs u.tml. Pilsētiņā atrodas arī ļoti daudzas skolas, kurās vari iemācīties sērfot, kaitot, airēties ar SUP dēli u.tml. Tāpēc ne velti teicu, ka pilsēta ir ļoti dzīvīga, jo tā ir piepildīta arī aktīviem, sportiskiem jauniešiem.
