Fuerteventura trials new ticket admission to protected Lobos island
Fuerteventura has started to take action to safeguard the picturesque Isla de Lobos for the future.
From now on, anyone who wants to visit the tiny island must book their place three days in advance and obtain a ticket.
The Cabildo has set up a web page for reservations to be made in two shifts and with a limit of 200 people in each.
During the first 15 days, the permit system will work in test mode to access the Natural Park.
The new system started on January 15, with the autho-risations available through the link https: // permissiondevisitaisladelobos.entrees.es or the Environment area of ??the Cabildo website, www.cabildofuer.es.
According to the president of the Cabildo, Marcial Morales, “compliance with the regulations of the Master Plan for the Use and Management of Islote de Lobos requires this type of measure that makes it possible to combine the full enjoyment of the natural area with its correct preservation”.
The Minister of Environ-ment, Natalia Évora, emphasizses that “during the first fifteen days, that is, until January 30, we will find ourselves in a provisional trial period, with the aim of resolving the small incidents that may occur in the system”.
Each visitor may request permission for up to three people per day and time slot, establishing a morning schedule from 10am to 2pm (200 concurrent visitors) and an afternoon schedule from 2am to 6pm (200 concurrent visitors).
In the authorisation, the identification data of the visitor (name, surname, ID, passport), the date of the visit and the chosen time will be collected. Once the data and the number of permits you wish to obtain have been entered, the user will access a link where you can download the autho-risations, which will also be sent to the person’s email.
For its part, the validation of the permits will be carried out by personnel of the managing body in the Islote de Lobos Natural Park. The authorisation can be presented in print or with the QR code on any mobile phone. The Cabildo also reminds that people who do not have the corresponding permit or exceed the time limit are exposed to the corresponding penalty.
A link to request the cancellation of the permit is also available to users, through https://entrees.es/solicitud_de_devolucion.
