Pajara

Travel Guide
Pajara which includes a small town or village

Move through this area’s small villages to discover scenic beaches, hiking paths, dunes and an active local fishing community.

Pajara, the largest municipality on the island of Fuerteventura, contains several picturesque resort villages and a natural park. Visit the sand dunes and sprawling beaches on the coast of this large region and learn about local customs farther inland.

Morro Jable, once a quiet fishing village, has now developed into a beach haven. Here, find Playa de Cofete, a stunning stretch of golden sand with coastal cliffs looming overhead. Travel by bus or car along a dirt track to reach the unspoiled terrain. Try not to look down as you speed around the corners of mountains. Morro Jable has several beaches and an old town center where you can eat fresh seafood meals after watching locals catch fish.

Make your way northeast to Jandía to find the Faro de Jandía. The village lighthouse is set in a spacious area with very few crowds. Contemplate the stillness while you stare at the ocean.

Playa de Sotavento is the highlight of the Jandía area. This beach is remarkably long and wide, which means you can find your own space to sit and enjoy a family picnic. Stroll through the dunes for that desert feeling before cooling down in the ocean. Strong winds provide ideal surfing conditions.

As you move farther northeast along the coast, the beach continues with picturesque lagoons occasionally breaking up the sand. Eventually, you will reach Costa Calma, a resort town that developed rapidly in the 1970s.

Pajara receives plenty of sunshine year-round and temperatures that soar above the average for the rest of the island.

The local language is Spanish, although the region is a hotspot for German tourists.

Pajara takes up the southwestern portion of the island, incorporating Jandía, Morro Jable and several other villages. A bus or taxi journey from Fuerteventura Airport will take slightly more than an hour to cover about 50 miles (80 kilometers).

Sand dunes, surfing and sun are among the many reasons to visit Pajara.
