GR131 from Punta de Jandia to Corralejo, Fuerteventura


Until recently the GR 131 was et up on the islands of Las Palmas and La Gomera within the Canary Island. I have seen indications that this path should one day become part of the E7. Now the GR 131 has been set up on Fuerteventura too. This newly set up path runs from the port of Corralejo at the northern tip to the southern end of Fuerteventura at Punta de Jandia covering 153.4 km. Not much shade can be expected on this path. It passes through four of the five different geographical areas. Wide and relative new lava fields as well as major dune areas are the trademarkt of the North. Next comes the big central plain. The longest stretch passes through the westerly mountains of Betancuria with its rounded tops and steep valleys. The southern part traverses the peninsula of Jandia along the coast with very fine beaches. The sand covered Isthmus El Jable connects the south with Fuerteventura.


 

 

The path is marked with white and red stripes. Additionally there are occasionally dark red markings with the path name placed.


Well sized and informative bill boards with a description of the next section in Spanish, English and German are placed at the start of each section.

 
  
 

These are the nine sections: 

  1. Etappe    3,5 km     Isla de Lobos

  2. Etappe  25,9 km     Corralejo - La Oliva

  3. Etappe  16,9 km     La Olivia - Tefia

  4. Etappe  17,2 km     Tefia - Betancuria

  5. Etappe  16,4 km     Betancuria - Pájara

  6. Etappe  23,4 km     Pájara - La Pared

  7. Etappe  17,2 km     La Pared - Casas del Risco de Paso 

  8. Etappe  14,3 km     Casas del Risco de Paso - Morro Jable

  9. Etappe  18,8 km     Morro Jable - Punta de Jandia


 

I have walked the sections seven and eight as well as partly section six.
