Island Day Trips
Lanzarote is the perfect destination for island hopping, with La Graciosa and Fuerteventura within 20/30 minutes away by ferry, it’s the perfect day trip to explore these beautiful islands from Lanzarote.
Lanzarote to Fuerteventura:
Ferries from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura are in operation daily with several crossings. The ferry tickets to Fuerteventura are around €18 and the trip takes around 30 minutes. To get to Fuerteventura, you need to catch the ferry from the port of Playa Blanca on the southern coast of the island. There are at least 15 daily crossings from Playa Blanca to the port of Corralejo in Fuerteventura. We recommend you start your island-hopping trip around 08:30am to make the most of your day. Once you arrive at the port of Corralejo, you will find yourself on a beautiful beach, where you can have your first quick swim. From the port, you can be in the Corralejo Natural Park in 10 minutes by car. Walk among impressive sand dunes and admire the Sea view. Continue your trip by visiting the island capital, Puerto del Rosario. Explore the local markets, grab a quick coffee and bite to eat, and head to the beach of Castillo in Caleta de Fuste. After a few relaxing moments, you can start driving to the southernmost part of the island. Pass by impressive landscapes, until you reach the Natural Park of Jandía, where you can hike among green hills, rocky beaches and sand dunes. Make your way inland and try delicious papas arrugadas and majorero cheese at the village of Antigua. Explore the island’s towns and villages such as La Oliva and Lajares, as you drive further north to the famous Popcorn Beach, where you can take amazing photos with the popcorn-like rhodoliths. This would be your final stop before getting back to the port of Corralejo to catch the last ferry at 20:00pm.
Lanzarote to La Graciosa:
The Lanzarote to La Graciosa route is available with around 20 daily crossings. It takes 25 minutes to reach La Graciosa, and tickets are around €14. Head to the port of Órzola (north of the island) and catch the 08:30am ferry to La Graciosa. You cannot take your vehicle to La Graciosa that is the island’s beauty! Once you reach the island, you realize it differs from the rest of the Canaries, as it is very calm relaxing and almost entirely untamed. We recommend that you focus on the outdoor exploration of the island and visit its majestic beaches, go hiking and enjoy the sunset from one of the awe-inspiring hills; the jeep safari is a must! 4×4 vehicles take visitors around the island to explore the must-see spots of La Graciosa, such as the Las Conchas beach and the Amarilla Mountain. Also, you can try snorkeling, diving and cycling. Our favorite activity in La Graciosa is going on a boat tour around its coast. So, if you have enough time before you catch the last ferry back to Lanzarote usually around 18:00pm, hop on a boat and try to catch a glimpse of the magnificent dolphins that hang around this magical part of the Atlantic Ocean.
