Photographer's Note

The Lobos Island is located in the Canary Islands and is located in Bocaina Strait between the
Islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.
This is a Nature Reserve with a total area of 467 hectares and approximately 14 km of coastline. Its maximum altitude is at the top of the volcano La Caldera, 127 meters above sea level.
The island's name is due to the large colony of sea lions, also known as monk seals, that there existed when European settlement began in the Canary Islands.
The last permanent inhabitants of the island were a lighthouse keeper and his family, having
abandoned the island in 1968, when the lighthouse was automated.
Currently a small colony of fishermen living on the island in rustic houses built of volcanic stone, where seasonally dedicated to traditional and artisanal fisheries.
To go to this island you have to take a boat from Corralejo on the island of Fuerteventura, given that the entire island is classified as a natural reserve, its use for tourism is very slow, there is a camp site with permission, a small restaurant improvised in a fisherman's house, where they serve meals on prior order, it is also possible to initiate contacts remain at home for fishermen sharing their way of life.
