Fuerteventura. Corralejo

This time, I'll tell you about a city (or rather, a tiny town) where we spent the biggest part of out vacation on 

Fuerteventura

.
I cannot say that I really liked this place, but it is a more or less suitable option from what I saw on the island. For many people. Especially, for families with children and without a car. And especially, if you want restaurants with a waterfront and activities. There are quite a lot of shops and restaurants (compared to the size of the town, of course). The beach in the town center is not great, but there are good beaches nearby, so it does not matter.
Most importantly - there is a great waterfront! And you can always buy what you need - some shops are open almost 24/7 (and on weekends, too).

The beach, as I have already said, is so-so. Although, surfers were having fun.

There are a lot of cafes on the waterfront (I'm not sure I can call it a coastline, everything there is so modest!). A lot! Because of this, the prices are very, very pleasing!!!

Previously, it was probably a sleepy fishing village...
Boats still stand there...

Who knows, maybe, they are still used for supplying local restaurants with fresh fish? Although, I would not be surprised if the fish there is mostly imported - there's not a lot of fish on the Canary Islands because of the depth. Although, I am not absolutely sure. It is so in Madeira, and they're similar, aren't they? Both are far from the continent...
But there are no problems with fish in the shops. Neither with fish nor with meat.
This shopping center has a supermarket which is open on weekends and holidays! Which is very convenient.

A ferry departs to Lanzarote (or you can take your car!) exactly from here, from the port! It's very, very close!
I'm not sure whether it's Lanzarote in the photo, there is also another island nearby, but anyway, it's visible and it's close.

Just behind the waterfront, there are unpretentious, boring streets.
But they are probably authentic, and not like "Potemkin village" for tourists...

And tourist streets look like this...

Would you like to buy a house? :)

The town has a "so-called" botanical garden.
Well, it's too exaggerated... 
It's quite bare. There are just several different rather stunted plants...
Although, it is fair - there are only those plants that have originally grown on the island.

There are also some children's playgrounds and jogging tracks.

But you can see, there's no need to look for this "garden" intentionally.
There are such tram rides around the town. It's very convenient for people without cars.

In general, that's all.
We visited this town a couple of times in the evening - it was quite nice there, but we are not really into hanging out at discos, so I can't say anything about that.
And here are more pictures from there...
