A place like no other. That is what this small natural paradise transmits. It is a little known place in Castillo Caleta de Fuste, but it is certainly worth discovering and visiting. It is a natural pool located between rocks. Although it is true that it is only appreciated when the sea is calm, this little corner is one of the most beautiful places to cool off and take a dip.
The island of Lobos is an islet located in the Bocaina Strait, northeast of Fuerteventura. Its name comes from the sea lions that used to inhabit the island in the past. It is a Natural Park, so it is fully preserved. The seabed is also protected due to its great ecological wealth. The pass that separates Isla de los Lobos and Fuerteventura is a small channel barely 10 meters deep. Without a doubt, it is a place worth exploring and enjoying, among other things for its crystal clear waters.
