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.

  • To go to this site we can opt for an excursion. With a better understand some impressive features of this site very interesting. Black sand beach, but going up a ramp on foot entered the access to some caves, formed by the wear of the sea. The route is a little winding and with hundreds of steps. At the top the view is fantastic. The caves are also interesting for the dimension. The way we're finding the lime kilns, which were once used to manufacture cal through the limestone rocks. By roadman route will talking about the characteristics of the rocks and erosion that has occurred in recent years, the fossils milhões, etc. It is an interesting visit.
