We paved the road in a northerly direction to Corralejo to take the boat to the Natural Park of the island of Lobos. The islet, located only two kilometers northeast of Fuerteventura, was the old habitat of a colony of monk seals (Monachus monachus) - sea lines that name this insular land - and today it is the scene of the first part of the day. As soon as we dock into El Muelle, we move to the beach known popularly as the Concha, although Playa de la Calera is the original place name, as there is a lime kiln nearby used to build the Martiño lighthouse. Continuing the GR131, we face the north, leaving the turnoff that leads to the salt marshes of Marrajo. Under the gaze of Montaña de la Caldera, we move to a territory full of biodiversity in its purest state. Culminarem la Caldera, of 127m, the highest peak in the islet from where the panoramic view is excellent for snapshots. Leading to the Martiño lighthouse, we observe the Llanos de los Labrantes, where 1860 installed the Portuguese workers who built the lighthouse. Once we pass the Morro Colorado, which gives us a beautiful image of the lighthouse, it only remains to cross the salt marsh and climb the Martiño mountain where there is the lighthouse. This construction of 1865 along with the lighthouses of Tostón (northwest of Fuerteventura) and Pechuguera (Lanzarote), form a triangle to indicate the passage of the ships through the Estuary of La Bocaina (which separates Lanzarote from Fuerteventura) . We return to the east side of Lobos to complete the circular route for this treasure of the Atlantic.
Arriving at Puertito we return with the ship to Corralejo to enjoy the second part of the day. Now we discover the charm of the area declared the 1994 Natural Park and which has more than 130 plant species with a high number of endemisms. With a total area of 2700 hectares, white sand dunes combed with wind give the area an extraordinary beauty.
