The north of the island, where Casa Zen and Casa Cocoon are located, is not overrun by mass tourism. The main interests are El Cotillo, Lajares, Majanicho, La Oliva, Los Molinos, and Corralejo. We're taking you for a ride!
Lajares, a bohemian village and artist
Lajares is famous for its Saturday craft market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the central square. The village brings together a community of artists and surfers in a bohemian atmosphere. You can visit a few craft shops (Gusty Bags, Greta Chicheri, etc…), stop in the small restaurants of the square, or climb the volcano El Calderon Hondo, a magnificent hike to do in about 1 hour and a half.
Majanicho, the end of the world
From Lajares, don't hesitate to take the road to Majanicho. You will discover a small part of the world. Take the time to walk in the rocks according to the tide, smell the sea air and enjoy this place out of time. If you then take the trail to the left, after about a kilometer, you will arrive at a beautiful beach of white coral sand. And if you are brave and curious, you can continue on this trail to get to El Cotillo.

The Oliva, typically Canarian
In La Oliva, be sure to visit its church and the original and charming Canarian art museum Centro de Arte Casa Mane which exhibits some artists from Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands.

Los Molinos, preserved village
El puertido de Los Molinos is a hamlet of a few white houses with coloured shutters on a secluded beach of black pebbles. Again, you'll feel like you're out of time. There are two typical Canarian restaurants: Las bohemias del Amor (at the bottom of the creek) and Los Molinos at the entrance to the village. If you are lucky enough to go at low tide, you can pass under an arch carved into the cliff. From the top of the cliffs, you'll have a bird's eye view of this lovely village.
The lively life of Corralejo
Corralejo is a pretty bustling, touristy and seaside town, with its fashion boutiques, restaurants, pubs, etc.: a main street lined with luxury boutiques, perfume shops, brands (Zara, Desigual, etc.) and on the ledge along the sea, full of small restaurants. All around, small houses with palm trees and vegetation and some pretty beaches in the city.
Dazzle at Corralejo Dunes Natural Park
The road to El parque natural de las dunas de Corralejo is a great place not to be missed. A road that winds along the ocean, between blue and white dunes, punctuated in some places by black rocks. There are many car parks that give you access to the beaches.
