Thursdsy 12th November and we drove the  11 kilometres from Tefia to visit this remote village and its beach.

Just keep following the twisty road, will eventually get there as the road comes to an end at Puertido de Los Molinos. We parked up in the car park, bar / restaurant Casa Pon nearby, we then walked towards the beach.

We crossed over a small wooden bridge, which spaned Barranco de los Molinos (ravine of Los Molinos) and its very narrow river. There were a number of unusual ducks here, more like turkeys. The bridge was definitely the newest structure here by a good number of years.

There were a few buildings here, we assumed were fishermen's house, which had withstood many a battering from the elements throughout the decades, if not longer.

We walked up the steps on the left hand side of the beach. These were carved into the rock face, which took us to a small pathway which led us across the wild and rugged coastline. It was an opportunity to see the dramatic terrain with the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashing upon it.

There was another pathway, up to the cliffs, on the right hand side of the beach, it can be found behind the restaurant by the car park, we did not venture up there.

The beach which stretches for about 200 metres along the coast is located in a rocky bay flanked on either side by sheer cliffs and a mountainous terrain behind it. Towards the waters edge the sand is dark golden brown. However the rest of the beach is cover with large rounded stones which are difficult to walk on, definitely not flip flop territory.

There are no sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, toilets or sports area here. There are a couple of restaurants, when open, and some bins, that is virtually it.

An ideal spot to escape from modern life, no phone signals, basically a place to unwind, relax, stroll along the beach or the cliffs.

We were hoping to visit the caves but we were unable to to so due to the height of the tide.

Despite not being able to visit the caves it was well worth a visit to enjoy the raw beauty and tranquility of the place.

Nice view point with a tiny rocky beach. You can have a swim and admire the rocks among the locals as not many tourists venture here. Not much to fo otherwise. One dodgy restaurant nearby.

I love this little place so much, and really dislike the negative reviews given by some people. And that is why i have given the title "Los Molinos or Marmite"

If you are looking for McDonalds, or 5 star service and cuisine then you should leave this place alone. If you have studied Fuerterventura history, and want to see a lovely little place where time appears to have stood still, then this is a must visit. But please, please, dont knock because it is not as you expected it to be.

If you want the wild wild atlantic crashing against volcanic cliffs and the sound of the waves booming into the caves, then you will love it.

If you want to visit somewhere where they will love you for not judging them by your values, but love you for embracing them by their values, then you will love it. And it will be so worth while making the effort.

We ate at La Terraza restaurant (not a restaurant at all by normal british standards) and were totally stunned by it. For a start, it is the furthest place in the cove and the get to it you have to walk a long path cut into the rocks to get to it, We even wondered if we might get cut off by the tide and have to stay there until the tide went out again, Pure adventure! When we finally got there, the restaurant was almost deserted, just one man sitting at a table reading, no studying social media and the effects on society (in spanish). We sat at a table and after about 5 minutes he rose from his chair and approached us. He was staff, not a customer. He smiled warmly at us, and we ordered a beer and a glass of wine. After a while, he signalled to us that he would be back in about 5 minutes. Leaving us totally alone in his restaurant, he climbed the cliff to the top, so that he could get a phone signal to make a phone call. I personally think that as we had sat there marvelling at the splendour of the location, he knew that he could trust us. He left us alone in his restaurant, with all the food, wine, cheese and everything, because (in my opinion) we had the same values.

The beer was cold and good. the wine delivered by the bottle, and the bottle left on the table.

We sat for almost an hour, before we ordered food. King prawn salad, with canarian potatoes, and goats cheese.

Having cooked and prepared our food for us (which, by the way, was amazingly good food) he left us alone to enjoy it. In fact, yes, ypu could criticise the service because at times we didnt know where he was. But at the same time, he knew that we were happy, and in love with the place, and would not have dreamed of leaving without paying.

We trusted him and he trusted us. Perfect, in the way things used to be, and the way that things should be.

We spent over 3 hours enjoying the food, the scenery, and the moment for what it was. just perfect. In every way.

I wasnt looking for marmite, and i am so glad that i didnt find it. I was looking for peace and quiet, beauty, and nature. And i got it in bucket loads.

Please set your expectation before going, but please, please do not blame this absolutely beautiful place just because it does not meet your expectations.

I hope that this place never changes.

This little cove is just over 8Km from the main road. A pleasant enough drive if you have nothing better to do, and just like exploring, but prepare to be disappointed. The road ends in a small cove and a stream with ducks and a Peahen. There are a couple of habitations and 2 cafe/restaurants. We chose the first one and were surprised by the bad attitude of the staff who became very grumpy that we did not want anything from the very limited menu and just settled for a beer. The toilet facilities are disgusting.

What a find! Thank you to the people on here who recommend this tiny village! Lovely beach, with crashing waves, and some rock pools to keep the children fascinated.
Forget the holiday hustle and bustle for a day and step into Spanish time. We ate at the restaurant overlooking the sea. Very small menu because everything ordered is cooked within the restaurant on a BBQ, it feels very personal and relaxed. The cooking process is very slow but it really doesn't matter when you have a beer in your hand and a ever changing view to look at.
My daughter and I kept popping down to the beach for a paddle while we were waiting!
I would recommend this lovely little place, it's one of the only truly traditional villages we could find!

A bit of an obstacle course to reach it once one has driven to the remote cove it overlooks. But a friendly welcome awaits and some good food. A limited menu - but caprese salad and a tortilla followed by grilled king prawns were all excellently cooked and more than sufficient. Not cheap - 65 euros including bottle of wine - but worth it for the quality of the food and the view!

Our host on Fuerteventura described Los Molinos as "the village at the end of the world".
Well it wasn't quite that bad the road in is new and excellent (Good old EU) at the end is a tiny inlet a small car park, 3 restaurants and about 6 other dwellings, not quite pretty but not a dump either.

What an amazing view ... The music in the world listening to the waves crushing... Not easy to get to the very far end restaurant with a big terrace overlooking the sea but worth the walk

The access to caves when the tide is low is quite something. The beach is good and the sunsets are awesome. Getting there by car is not a problem.
