Lobos Island, Fuerteventura on 35mm film

I've been meaning to share this post for a while now. The reason why I haven't is because I have actually injured my wrist and have been wearing a hand brace for the last few days. Therefore being at a computer has not been my priority. Since I haven't been able to do much, my days have consisted of long Netflix marathons binge watching Cable Girls and Peaky Blinders, which tbh I can't really complain about. However, I am going a little bit insane and can't wait to take this hand brace off. Anyway I am going to the south of Italy this week with my best friend so its goodbye to Netflix and hello to long days on the beach and beautiful sunsets. 

Now lets talk about Lobos Island, a little paradise in Fuerteventura. The surf camp we stayed with organised this trip and honestly all my expectations were exceeded. We took a paddle board, food and sunscreen and had the best time. Can you tell from the pictures how beautiful this little island was? Definitely go on this day trip if you find yourself in Fuerteventura

El Cotillo, Fuerteventura on 35mm film

A few weeks ago, my universities surf society and I spent one week in Fuerteventura. We surfed, we sunbathed, we got burnt and we explored the island. El Cotillo was beautiful, so I had an amazing time walking around and taking pictures. I hope you like them!

The following pictures are of the town centre, I would recommend Cafe Central for tapas, Restaurante la Vaca Azul for dinner and Cayote Bar for a nice caipirinha 😜.

On the last day we found a tiny ice cream place on this square, it was called Heladería La Puntilla and it was amazing! 🍦

I don't know what this beach was called, but it was next to Star Surf, the company we went with. At low tide it was the perfect spot to paddle board. 

^ This was the beach at high tide.

This beach was where we spent the majority of our time surfing. 

Towards the end of the week there was a storm at sea so we went to Corralejo to surf. However, it was too late in the afternoon and the tide was too high. We returned the next morning for an 8am surf which was amazing. 

Above are pictures of the Corralejo port where we took a boat to Lobos Island, a little paradise that deserves a post of its own. Watch out for that! 👋
