Monumento Natural de Ajuy, Fuerteventura

(4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Just outside of Pajara, you'll find the caves and black lava sands of Monumento Natural de Ajuy. This ancient fishing village is the site where Bethencourt disembarked to conquer the island for Spain in 1402. Enjoy freshly caught fish at one of the small restaurants on the beach, or have a drink at the bar up on the hill and enjoy expansive Atlantic views. While the waves are impressive to watch, swimming here isn't recommended because of the strong undertow. Don't miss a visit to the caves, free of charge and just a short walk up the path from the beach. Wear shoes with a good grip because the steps can be slippery.

  • Already a beautiful drive between Pájara and Ajuy. A little walk (educational, well marked and protected) on the cliff North of Ajuy is a good time between the blue ocean, the white foam of the waves and the black of the rock. The cuevas, remains a picture of undeniable power.

  • Don't miss this amazing spectacle of nature. But don't stop at the nearest cliff, past the net and go up to the top secret (we receive very few) Pebble Beach can be reached in approximately 15 minute walk between goats.

  • Beautiful place Council to inspect it to see first of all the Black Beach el characteristic village of ajuy, then walk on the reef you can see the various layers of volcanic rock
