The small Isla de Lobos is a popular sailing destination from nearby Marina Rubicon, and also from Puerto Calero or Marina Lanzarote. In response to problems with over-saturation, a daily limit on tourist boats has now been set.

On the leeward side of the island there is a beautiful anchorage area with crystal clear waters, and a small jetty that you can get to with your dinghy. There is a small group of houses nearby plus a restaurant and several sheltered coves.

Being south of Lanzarote, the sail over will usually be downwind, and the return close-hauled. On your return take into account that the island generates a land breeze or, terral wind, which can be powerful and gusty, especially on hot days.
