Tuesday was very windy and slightly overcast. We drove down to the beach beside the two big resort hotels - which are by the way the two highest buildings I have seen here so far.
From there we walked first along the water and then through the sand dunes.
Looking back: hotels, islands of Lobos and Lanzarote
As we started to walk back we discovered a bar that had just opened and took a little break there, protected from the strong wind.
Well, I have quite a good map app and came up with a plan B right away.Driving in Fuerteventura is very easy. There is little traffic and most streets are very in excellent condition.
However this time we took a short cut which was more like a dirt road but not too bad. And we soon reached the regular road to El Cortillo, another fishermen's village on the west coast.
We drove all the way out to the lighthouse.
We followed an educational path around the lighthouse that teaches you about the stones you see.
More dramatic waves in the evening sun!
There is a Mexican restaurant with a great view and wonderful food. It was even protected from the wind so we could sit outside.
Very yummy food!
We walked around a bit and went into a pub. But all that wind had made us kind of tired so we didn't stay out too long. Instead we decided to have a longer look at it the next day.
