Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • This well signposted todomuy, is spectacular to see the cavities that has made the sea. Access is a little difficult, but is well indicated and has handrails.

  • You must have seen this spectacle of nature if it lingers on Fuerteventura! Alone, the way to the caves is a highlight, with sandstone shaped by the wind. In the walk-in cave, one can observe the impressive power of the West Coast and has a great view on the other natural caves. Only in the depth of the cave you should not use his nose because many tourists probably confused it with a urinal :/
