Hi guys,

Pls could someone assist. We want to be able to catch buses from the airport to Calle Juan de Austria a road in Corralejo? Does anyone know which bus/es would be best and whether there are any stops that are close to this street? Or how we can find way or is it best to catch a taxi?

Many thanks,

D

Number 3 bus from airport to PDR bus station.  Then number 6 bus from PDR to Corralejo. The No 6 goes round the back of Corralejo and down to the ferry terminal

From Google maps, it looks like Calle Juan de Austria is miles from a bus stop (if you have luggage), so I would get off at the Campanario centre (the new bus station) and get a cab from there to Calle Juan de Austria.

Campanario is the only place (that I know of) where there is both a bus stop and a taxi rank.

If you have no luggage, stay on the bus until the old bus station, get off turn right (up the hill) then left onto LePanto (after 150M) then right onto Tortuga (after 150). Then you need to turn left onto one of the cross streets depending on where your accomodation is on Calle Juan de Austria which runs parallel to Tortuga

I just put "Calle Juan de Austria, corralejo, fuerteventura" into Google Maps to get this info

That's really helpful - thanks. I did google map yesterday from home but couldn't get any info for some reason.

Thanks so much!

Get Corralejo up on Google Maps. Find the FV1 running north-south on the western edge of the town. Find the Calle Lepanto in the old town running east-west from the FV1 towards the sea. The so-called "old bus station" is on the FV1 just north of the junction with Lepanto.

Get off the 6 bus there, walk 50 yards south on the FV1 to the top of Lepanto, cross over and walk 150 yards east down Lepanto, turn right down Calle Juan Sebastian Elcano for 150 yards until you see a large car park on the right, Juan de Austria is the road parallel to Juan Sebastian Elcano on the left so turn down any street (some are pedestrian) on the left opposite the car park for 50 yards and you are at your destination. Without luggage it is about a 7 minute downhill walk from the old bus station and very easy to find.
