Ajuy Beach

Delve into the mysterious caves hidden in this black sandy region and watch the cool blue water lapping the dark shore.

Ajuy Beach is a scenic area with restaurants and boutiques facing a volcanic black shoreline. The sand is very soft and has an intriguing appearance, dotted with little charcoal gray pebbles. Climb the rocky cliffs for excellent vantage points for your photos of the unusual colors of nature in this Fuerteventura destination.

Feel the bizarre mix of soft sand and dark pebbles beneath your feet as you walk along the shoreline. Sunbathe on the beach and cool down in the water, although remember to be careful with the strong tides. Expect to see naked bathers wandering up and down the intriguing stretch of sand because Ajuy Beach welcomes nudists.

Clamber up the hills past the yellow rocks to find the area’s caves. Crawl inside one of the grottoes and sit down with a picnic. It is said that English pirates used to hide their stolen goods in these holes. Some of the caves are very large and include staircases and rails. Bring appropriate footwear and a flashlight to explore the darkest depths. As you exit the caves, admire the strange rock formations surrounding you and look out at the scenic coastline. 

A little inland from the beach, find quaint streets with cafés and restaurants serving fresh fish. Get a bus into the hilly area of Betancuria, where colonial buildings and museums are nestled in a valley.

The black sand is an iconic trait of the island and is the result of volcanic eruptions. Hiking paths on the cliffs surrounding the beach are free to access, and there is free parking.

Ajuy Beach is between two ravines on the west coast of Fuerteventura. A highway connects the area with the small town of Pajara and the rest of the island. Take a bus or taxi on the 30-mile (48-kilometer) journey west from Fuerteventura Airport.
