Day 2. Visit to Corralejo

After enjoying a good selection of breakfast dishes we walked along to Caletta’s bus station for a bus to Corralejo in the north of the island.  To get there it was necessary to change buses in Puerto Rosario.  The journey time was one hour and ten minutes.  The landscape was barren and devoid of any vegetation but as we travelled further north the rocky wasteland gave way to large sand dunes.

Corralejo is a slightly larger resort than Caletta, with more shops and cafes.  At the end of the main thoroughfare was the old town, it wasn’t exactly old but more characterful than the rest of town.  We continued to the end of the jetty from where we could just make out the island of Lanzarote in the hazy distance.  Corralejo has a larger Marina, small fishing harbour and ferry services to both Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.

We chose an attractive cafe for a beer, sitting in the sunshine but just as we were about to leave, the weather changed rapidly and heavy rain began to fall.  Although we tried to shelter we got soaked on our return to the bus stop, fortunately it was warm rain.

After a rest, we had a walk along the seafront before dinner.  There was a stiff breeze so it wasn’t warm enough for sunbathing or a dip in the pool.  Dinner was again good, with a different selection to last night.   Our evening ended with another short walk by the sea.
