    Stunning coastline
    This area is stunning, truly beautiful. It’s a bit of a hike to the caves, but well worth it when you get there. Sensible footwear recommended. There are steps down to the cave entrance, so not really suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

    Focus on the caves
    A majestic, historical and interesting area! The cave hike was an absolute highlight, only such a shame that several tourists choose to use the place as a public toilet, instead of taking in the history and the wonders of nature... The local village next to the caves does not leave much to the imagination, with expensive tourist traps all over the place. Do the cave hike and move on!

    Lovely area
    Wow, the Monumento Natural de Ajuy is a lovely view. A nice little walk from the car park and along the way you may get to see a few chipmunks roaming around. There are a couple of viewpoints were you can get nice photos. The walk down to the caves is via an uneven path and steps but is very safe. Inside the cave can be slippy be careful if you go further back in the dark. A great view and scenery

This is a lovely fishing village with outstanding views and walks - it is absolutely worth a visit and should the waves not be thundering against the shore, a dip in the sea - but absolutely not advised when the waves are roaring.

A beautiful town on the West coast of Fuerteventura. The town and area is very easy on the eye and well worth a visit for a spot of lunch, sunbathing and exploring.

I’ve seen caves before and was wondering if I should skip this. So glad I didn’t. HUGE and deep caves that if you have the guts can go probably really deep but it gets too dark. Absolutely recommend.

The beach was calm and very few people were sun bathing. It was actually very empty even though the water was at perfect temperature for a sun bathing and swimming. From the beach you get the best views to the rocks and the town itself. There is a path starting from the extreme north of the beach that leads upon the rocks following the natural caves of the coast. It was really worth the climb up and the walk along the cliff to get the best pictures of the coast.

The trail to the cave was interesting in itself, allowing us to catch glimpses of the oldest fossil dunes on the island. We could see that some of holes close to the water serve as blowholes, causing water to spray in the air. Along the walkway we saw several old lime kilns. The creation of lime played an activity part in the island past as it played an important role in the construction of traditional homes

We’re so glad we went - amazing! Awesome views, incredible caves - a lively walk in the sunshine. And you even get to see Chipmunks up close - and a few goats up on the rocks, too. And it’s all free - we’ll worry a visit. Take sturdy walking shoes, though

It is a worth visiting place. Incredible Caleta Negra (Spanish for "Black Bay") lies 2 km from Ajuy. Near this bay there is an old lime kiln. These deep and dramatic caves carved into the softer parts of the limestone cliffs by ocean storms gives an unforgetable experience and memories.

Go, it’s well worth the trip! These natural rock formations result in such dramatic waves with the spay and foam you expect from a boisterous sea. The power of the water is mesmerising
