La Isla de Lobos

Isla de Lobos – this islet (whose name means “Island of Wolves” in Spanish – named after the sea wolves, or monk seals, that once lived there), is located just north of Fuerteventura. It comprises a largely uninhabited nature preserve that’s home to diverse flora and fauna, including rare birds. The main beach, Playa de la Concha, is known for its clear waters. Trails cross a landscape of salt marshes and hornitos (small volcanic mounds) and lead to volcanic Montaña La Caldera and the 19th-century Martiño lighthouse.
