If you're itching to explore another of the Canary Islands while you're in Fuerteventura, then this easy trip to Lanzarote will see you hopping there and back in a day. You'll catch the ferry over from Corralejo and dock in Playa Blanca, where it's up to you how you spend your time until the return ferry late in the afternoon.
The ferry will leave mid-morning for a quick 45-minute crossing to the volcanic lands of Lanzarote. Once you've stepped on to its shores, you'll have about five hours to explore, see and do as you wish. Playa Blanca's got a whole host of shops, bars and seafood restaurants lining the promenade, which are perfect for a spot of lunch.
There are also three beaches – two of which are Blue Flag winners, so you're guaranteed great sunbathing conditions. Alternatively, head out of town to see Los Hervideros, a string of wind and wave-battered volcanic cliffs, and one of Lanzarote's top attractions. Catch the ferry back in the late afternoon, and you'll be in Corralejo in time for a pre-dinner cocktail.
