Monumento Natural de Ajuy, Fuerteventura

4.6
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.

  • Pretty black sandy beach and ballad (in closed shoes!) along the cliffs and caves. Superb views

  • which is worth! Had a cloudy day yesterday and are raised spontaneously by Costa Calma (approx. 40 min). Beautiful, small dark beach with many caves and Grotto. Worth a visit in any case, we have shot the 300 photos ;-) The promotion and relegation with the perspective is unique. Maybe not for people with a fear of heights.
