How To Get The Ferry From Lanzarote To Fuerteventura

The canary islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are so close that you can often see one island from another, and easily travel between islands on a day trip.

Travelling from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura requires you to head to Playa Blanca in the south of the island and pick up a ferry from the port which is operated by three different ferry lines, multiple times a day at a cost of €35 per person return.

Given the number of ferry lines operating this route, it’s no surprise that there are crossings between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura taking place pretty much every hour.

However, keep in mind that you will need your passport or valid photo identification to travel. Without this, you will be denied boarding by any and all ferry operators.

Getting To Playa Blanca

The Playa Blanca ferry terminal is located in the heart of Playa Blanca town and is easy to access by car, by taxi or on public transport.

If you’re coming from other towns such as Costa Teguise or Puerto Del Carmen then you could either look at getting a taxi or the public bus.

However, in some cases, it may be cheaper and less hassle to book the trip as part of a package from one of the local tour operators.

These tour packages include transport from your accommodation to the ferry terminal, return ferry tickets to / from Fuerteventura and then return transport back to your hotel at the end of the day.

However, keep in mind that while this does minimise hassle it also minimises flexibility and requires you to be picked up at a specific time and leave Fuerteventura at a certain time in order to get the transport back to your hotel.

Ferry From Playa Blanca To Fuertoventura

Tickets for the ferry from Playa Blanca to Fuerteventura can be booked either in person at one of the ticket desks or online in advance.

Ferry operators very rarely sell out of tickets and as such you should be fine heading down to the ferry terminal to buy tickets on the same day of travel.

However, keep in mind that all passengers (including children) require either a passport or photo identification to travel.

This is the case whether you’re going on a one-way ticket, a same-day return ticket and regardless of the ferry operator, you’re going with.

While the journey does vary depending on the ferry line you’re going with most journeys all take between 25 and 35 minutes and arrive in the town of Corralejo in Fuerteventura located in the north of the island.
