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.

Sea air in El Cotillo

There are several things to do:
– Park in the city centre and visit the small fishing port and take a leisurely stroll along the ledge with its small restaurants and shops white and blue.
– go to the big beaches and the lighthouse on the right of the village. Huge beaches of white sand like lagoons. On this side, swimming is easy for children.  And if you take the trail after the lighthouse, lagoons for kitesurfing.
– At the entrance to El Cotillo at the crossroads where he has the Superdino on the right, take a left to go see the big sandy beaches and cliffs, for surfers (a bit of track).

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.

In Corralejo, you'll be spoilt for choice when you go out to restaurants

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.
