Route - Los Silos – Buenavista – Teno
This route starts out from Caleta de Iterián (Los Silos) and goes as far as the beach of Las Arenas (Buenavista del Norte) and a good part of the route runs along a comfortable dirt track that leads to different bathing spots. The last stretch of the route runs along the coastal part of the golf course with views of the Teno Rock Massif (one of the oldest parts of the island). On the last stretch, you will come across an asphalt road that ends up bordering the golf course with a cobbled path. The route is not signposted, but it is impossible to get lost, as it runs along the entire coastline.
Once in Buenavista del Norte, you have to follow a route of about 30km along the coast of the municipality, taking the TF-445 road, the signs are very clear and you can't get lost. You will reach the Punta Teno lighthouse.

If you are planning to discover Fuerteventura by bike, Coral Hotels provides you with a guide with the best cycling routes that can be done from Coral Cotillo Beach. Coral Hotels also offers bicycle rental.
Route - El Cotillo - Playa de Jarugo, also known as Playa de Jarubio
This route is recommended for skilled cyclists because the route runs for 20 kilometers with changes in altitude as it crosses ravines. It runs through the arid landscape of the west coast where you can find secluded beaches.
The route runs in three stages. The first is in El Cotillo and passes through the Special Protection Area for Birds, where it is possible to observe birds, such as the Canarian Houbara Bustard. The third stage of the route descends through the village of Tindaya down to the coast. You will be able to spot the Tindaya Mountain, which stands out from the rest because of its particular colour. You will also see the Barranco de Esquinzo ravine and Tebeto Beach. In order to get to Playa de Jarugo, once you have passed Playa de Tebeto, you will continue through a series of extensive terrains, generally flat and hard.
Circular route - El Cotillo - Lajares - Corralejo
The route starts out from El Cotillo in the direction of Lajares on the cycle path. You have to be careful because there are some U-shaped slopes that put you at risk of damaging the rim of your bike. Once in Lajares, you have to go through several side streets in the direction of the Calderón Hondo Volcano, the only serious and complex climb of the route. There are 120 metres of vertical drop and on the last stretch you have to go over a path of volcanic stones about 60 centimetres high, so there is a risk of losing your balance. After overcoming the stretch of cobbled path, you will have to continue through a downhill dirt track to Corralejo.
In Corralejo, a town with cycle lanes, you'll take a track that runs along the north coast. Once past one of the most unusual beaches on Earth, The Popcorn Beach, it is advisable to turn off the track for a couple of kilometres to follow the coast, cycling along a route of sandbanks and loose rocks. Although it makes the route tougher, it gives it a different feel to the dry tracks and the cars and quads that cross the road.
After Majanicho beach, it is recommended to return to the track where car traffic is reduced. The route continues through a sandy terrain where you can walk along the coast and the coves of Punta Blanca, Cala Beatriz and Los Charcos, until you reach the Faro del Tostón lighthouse.
