Ajuy, Fuerteventura

Ajuy is a small village on the West coast of Fuerteventura. It is less than a twenty minute drive from Pajara, most of the drive is along the valley which has Ajuy at its mouth.

The beach at Ajuy is attractive, though covered with black sand. A couple of the few restaurants in the village are on or close to the beach.

The village is probably most visited because of the caves that are to be found a short walk from the town. The path to the caves is to be found at the northern end of the beach, and leads past the hut that has been built into the rock face.

The views from the path are quite impressive, as the coast in this area consists mainly of cliffs.

The caves are quite impressive, and can be entered via a series of steps that have to be navigated with care. We are not sure that it is sensible to enter the caves without some sort of protective head gear that a speliologist would wear as a matter of course.
