Monumento Natural de Ajuy, Fuerteventura
(4.6/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Very impressive natural violence of the surf. Giant cave, unfortunately used as a toilet. Small place right on the beach. Amazing shaped limestone rocks.

  • The combination of the beach with the sand black volcanic with its glitters in the Sun next to the rough seas of the Atlantic Ocean, contrasts with the settlement of Ajuy and its small houses and boats waiting for slaughter.

  • The beach is the only black sand of Fuerteventura, from here you can get in a quarter of an hour (closed toe) in a natural cave quite impressive. We saw many tourists go inside the cave and climb among the boulders even with inadequate shoes, we would not recommend.
