Join Spanish and Surf to catch some waves in Fuerteventura! Surfing is a great way of being in contact with the ocean and getting fit whilst having fun. All the surf sessions begin with a fun warm up. If you want to get started with this exciting sport or want to improve your skills with Spanish and Surf, you will find a nice atmosphere and they guarantee you the maximum professionalism.
You will stay at Casa Carmen in Fuerteventura, Spain, which is a beautiful Canarian style villa that overlooks the ocean. The moment you step in, you will feel the special charm of the house. Casa Carmen, which is located in Bristol area, one of the best places of Corralejo, Fuerteventura, is a relaxed place where you will enjoy watching the sunset over the ocean from the backyard.
The villa can accommodate up to 15 students in shared dormitories and private bedrooms with private bathrooms. It has a community kitchen, dining room, two lounges, both with sea views, where you can relax, chat, read, connect to the internet, and relax after a great surf session. You can also enjoy the garden which overlooks the sea, sunbathe, lie down in the hammock, or go for a swim.
The surf courses are given for different levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Spanish and Surf focuses a lot on giving individual corrections and depending on your progress, you will change from your initial group. With a mobile surf school, you will go surfing to several surf spots. Depending on wind and tide conditions, this will give you the opportunity to discover several beautiful and hidden spots of the island.
Beginners level is for people who have never been surfing (or one day of experience).
Intermediate level is for a group of people who have been surfing but with less than two weeks of experience.
You can be categorized as advanced if you have more than two weeks of surf experience.
Do you want to keep practicing and improving your surfing after class? You can use the surf gear as much as you like. Spanish and Surf will provide you with the board, leash, and wetsuit at no extra cost. Just come by their surf shop to pick up the gear. The only rule is to bring everything back for storage before 10:00 p.m. when the store closes.
This surf holiday will take place in Fuerteventura, Spain. The villa’s convenient location, only five minutes walk to Corralejo town center, will allow you to walk to the beach, supermarket, and restaurants, go out for a drink at night with no need to take a taxi, and even walk to some of the best surf spots on the island such as the Bristol wave, el muelle, generoso, or rocky point.
Canary Islands are a volcanic archipelago of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the southern coast of Morocco, in northern Africa and southwest of the Spanish peninsula. It is comprised of seven main islands and six islets.
It is one of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities and is divided into two provinces: the western islands belong to the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which includes Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro, and La Gomera, while on the easter side, it has the province of Las Palmas, with the islands of Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and, of course, Fuerteventura!
You need to arrange your own meals during your stay. The student house includes a fully equipped kitchen, with all the basic appliances and kitchenware, so you can cook any meal and share the experience with other students. Conveniently, there are two supermarkets near Casa Carmen, both only a five minute walk away.
Every Tuesday, the surf school organizes a dinner for students and instructors. For only 10 EUR, you will enjoy dinner while sharing a table with your fellow surf students, as well as enjoy a live music show. It is common for students to go out every evening for dinner and drinks.
Corralejo offers many good restaurants with reasonable prices. For between 10 and 20 EUR, you can have anything from an authentic Italian pizza to delicious fresh fish. Over the past few years, many Europeans have made the north side of the island their home, giving way to a new wave of international cuisine restaurants, at more than fair prices.
Besides surf and Spanish school, Fuerteventura offers a number of activities that are unique to the Fuerteventura experience. Here are five more good reasons to grab a suitcase and spend some time there in a sunny Atlantic island.
If you’re seeking more spiritual experiences (or adventure in general) then it is recommended that you take your hiking boots and climb one of Fuerteventura’s most iconic points, the Tindaya Mountain. The Tindaya is the sacred mountain of the indigenous ‘Majorero’ people of Fuerteventura. An imposing pyramid of rock that magnificently rises in the middle of an esplanade, noticeably separated from any other mountain or volcano.
The climb there is a relatively easy one, although only appropriate hiking footwear is recommended because of the many rocky surfaces one encounters. Avoid climbing on windy days as this would make the hike very challenging and could hinder your enjoyment.
Of course, you can’t really have a full island experience until you get a little wet. Besides surfing in Fuerteventura, one of the more adventurous activities you can do in the ocean is rent a kayak and head over to The Island of Lobos. “Lobos” is the Spanish word for “Wolves", but don’t worry, no one has ever run into any wolves on the island and the fauna there is rather friendly. The name actually comes from the monk seals (or sea wolves) that used to inhabit the island but are now rarely seen.
After setting sail from Corralejo, one can soon appreciate, at a distance, the majestic beauty of this quiet, lonely little island. Located in La Bocayna, which is the strait between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, Isla de Lobos offers its visitors a day of sunny relaxation and adventurous trekking, finishing off with delicious seafood, and paella (served by the only establishment on the island).
If you aren’t sure of doing the expedition by yourself, there are a number of guided kayak tours available. They take approximately four hours and may include some snorkeling and boat ride.
Fuerteventura's waters are home to four of the eight known species of sea turtle, which is one of the reasons why the island, together with the collaboration of the Republic of Cape Verde, have spearheaded a project to reintroduce the beloved loggerhead turtle, both on the island of Boa Vista (Cape Verde) and on Fuerteventura’s west coast.
Numerous volunteers gather throughout the year at the breathtaking Cofete Beach to release hundreds of this majestic but endangered species. It is recommended to join them and live a uniquely fulfilling experience that will connect you with nature in a way you’ve never felt before.
You don’t have to be a hopeless romantic to enjoy a good sunset, and very few sunsets are as beautiful as the one seen from El Cotillo. This quaint fishing village is a favorite town on the island. It’s an ideal place to enjoy some of the best seafood in Fuerteventura and have a tranquil evening in its crystal clear water and fine sand. It’s a short drive from Corralejo but if you prefer, you can walk or grab a bicycle and hit the bike trail, enjoy the scenery, and arrive there just on time for the sunset.
Taking a stroll through the Dunes of Corralejo is so stunning and spiritual. This place is one of Fuerteventura’s most impressive natural parks: a strip of land of eight kilometers long by three kilometers wide, it is a natural oasis, reminiscent of the sandy Saharan landscape. Its dunes are in constant motion, uncovering age-old marine fossils which are scattered throughout the area, making your walk part pleasant excursion, part archaeological expedition.
As if the dunes themselves weren’t beautiful enough, the scenery is accompanied by the turquoise waters of the Atlantic on one side and the dramatic, red volcanic landscape on the other.
Please book your flight to arrive at Fuerteventura Airport (FUE). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Spanish and Surf will pick you up from the airport.
