For many of the foreign tourists who visit it each year (60.6 million in 2013 with a total expense of 59.082 million EUR), Spain is sun and beach. And they are right: the Spanish Peninsula and its islands are authentic havens by the sea of relaxation, being in some parts of its geography practically just that. This is the case of Pajara, in Fuerteventura, the town with more kilometres of coastline in Spain, where everything revolves around the sea, its beaches and the spectacular natural landscapes, almost uninhabited.
Pajara has 170 km of coastline, of which more than 70 are beaches are perfect for swimming, with fine sand, stretched and with shallow waters. Cofete Beach, one of the most famous, located on the large natural park of Jandia, is a true spectacle of beauty, although its current’s and tides make it one of the least recommended for bathing especially if traveling with children.
This southern municipality is one that has the most beach hotels in Fuerteventura, being especially notable those located in the resorts of Costa Calma, Jandia and Morro Jable. More specifically, the hotels in Jandia beach are the most desired because they offer a privileged location, just steps from everything, but with the peace of mind of being in a more natural areas of Fuerteventura beach.
Book a hotel in one of the southern beaches of Fuerteventura is a guarantee of sun and relaxation, but also gives you the opportunity to know the interesting culture of this area of the island, where the sea spirit of the people is mixed with the tourism boom that it has experienced in recent years.
Pajara retains its traditional charm, its traditional festivals and gastronomy, very much based on seafood: in some of the restaurants that one can find on the frontline promenade of Morro Jable, it is possible to taste delicious and amazing dishes, not only for its preparation but for the excellent quality of the raw materials with which they are prepared.
Towns like La Lajita, La Pared o Ajui are worth a visit, as they offer a clear image of what was and what is Fuerteventura today. It’s small streets, caves and natural sights, its people, its traditional taverns, the pleasant atmosphere of the evening when the sun goes down, the music …
Pajara is a place to get lost in its coast, but also it is a place to discover inland, and discover its true essence. An ideal place for family holidays, and an escapade to a beach destination.
