We spend mornings and evenings in the sheltered waters of Corralejo, perfect for swims with baby, SUP and freeride / beginner windsurfing. A short walk away is Rocky Point, a convenient break for catching some waves, sailing or surfing. For families looking to spend less time in a car and more time in the sea on their holidays, Corralejo is a brilliant base. Chilled out tunes play from the beach cafes for the post Ibiza generation and we watch the evening sun illuminate the views of the island of Lobos with an eclectic crowd. Old ravers, surfers, hipsters and holidaymakers, Fuerteventura has a place for them all.
It’s time to head home and as I walk through the departures area of the island’s modern airport, my eye is drawn to the TV screens playing windsurfing videos on loop in a large shop. Intrigued I look closer at the sign above the door – ‘No Work Team’. The island and the ‘Team’ have all grown up since last time I visited, but thankfully not so much that they’ve let go of their roots. Fuerteventura is still, and always will be, a great place to windsurf and escape to the sun.
