Parts of Corralejo

Old Town

The heart of Corralejo is its charming old town, which is centered around a picturesque harbor and a small bay. Here, you'll find narrow, winding streets lined with whitewashed houses, local shops, and traditional restaurants serving Canarian cuisine. The old town retains much of its original fishing village character and is a great place to wander and explore.

Town Center

Moving away from the old town, the center of Corralejo offers a more modern atmosphere with a wide range of shops, bars, and restaurants. Here, you'll find a pedestrianized main street (Avenida Nuestra Señora del Carmen) lined with shopping centers, boutiques, and various dining options, as well as the popular nightlife district.


Outside of the town center, you'll find various residential neighborhoods, offering a mix of villas, apartments, and holiday rentals. These areas are generally quieter and more relaxed, providing a contrast to the bustling town center.
