How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
Short walk

Fly into Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura. Then by car or bus to the South on the highway. Turn left when you see the sign to `Sol Gorriones`. Pass the hotel to the right and drive uphill. A dirt road with rocks goes almost all the way to the south, drive slow and carefully. The launch is where a bigger area is accessable by car, normally you see the kites immediately. You can also walk from the hotel Sol Gorriones down to the lagoon, or from the windsurf spot to the west walk east to the lagoon.
