COVID-19: Canary Islands Safe Travel Corridors

An agreement has been made between the Madrid government and the Canary Islands to establish a protocol for safe travel. The protocol includes:

No test required for tourists arriving from countries with less than 50 per 100,000 cases in the last 14 days to any international airport within the archipelago.

Tourists arriving from counties with a greater case load of 50 per 100,000 will have to prove a negative test 48 hours before departure at the latest.

Before leaving the islands a test will be required 48 hours before departure. If the test result is positive the tourist will have to quarantine in facilities provided by the government. Healthcare or hospitalization would also be covered if necessary.

The Radar Covid App will be translated to multiple languages and its use encouraged for tourists.

Hello (future) surfers!!


Summertime... so we can surf back in our shorts and lycra or in your bikini. The water is now 21 degrees and air temperature is about 27-30 degrees and the waves are still rolling, but probably at you home it is now also good weather (but I have some doubts that the waves are rolling at your hometown...).

The waves don't get that big as in the winter but we are lucky that we have also the wind swell in the summer. When we have wind swell we go surfing on the east coast (playa burro, playa moro, playa blanca) and when there is no wind and we have ground swell we go surfing on the northshore (punta blanca, boneyards) or on the west coast (cotillo, playa de las mujeres).

If you book 1 week surfschool or surfcamp with Homegrown you will be surfing several surf spots and meanwhile see something of the island...

So when you are stoked for surf, book a flight, fly 4 hours and you will enjoy the golden beaches of Fuerteventura and the atmosphere at the Homegrown surfcamp and surfschool
