I had the fortune to spend some time living in and working remotely from Corralejo, Fuerteventura. Here are a couple of tips that may help those on the fence about working remotely from the island.

Living and Working

Many of Corralejo’s residents are digital nomads themselves. A good way to network is through the Remote Work Community slack chat. Fiber optic internet is widely popular in town. The internet bandwidth in Corralejo was, in my experience, the best I have found while working remotely. If working out of home is more your thing, Uga Uga Cafe or Cofete Coworking are good alternatives. Beware: the coworking spaces in town are rather basic, nothing to compare to coworking places in bigger tech cities.


Anything that has the word “surf” in it. Additionally, the country roads nearby Corralejo are good for road cycling. Northern Fuerteventura is also a good place for trail running. Many rocky hills and volcanos can be found on the outskirts of town.

Getting Around

Corralejo is a small city. Short distances combined with great weather make it a good place to walk, bike or ride an e-scooter to places. Although there are surfing spots in town, they do not work year-round. Most of the surfing spots are situated out of town, for which a rental car would be most convenient. Alternatively, you can arrange transportation to spots out of the city with a local surf school.

All in all, Corralejo provides you with a good infrastructure and beautiful nature to have a productive and pleasant remote work experience.
