We had visited Ajuy when we were in Fuerteventura last year but we not well enough to visit the caves. After reading recent reviews about being charged to visit the caves, we were unsure about going again. We decided it was worth the trip just to sit and people watch in one of the restaurants, even if we didn't see the caves.
But we did go up the path and once we turned the corner and could see the caves we had to carry on......like kids really.....I wonder what is round the next corner.
It was FREE and a spectacular place to visit. The footpath was clear although the ground was uneven. I would recommend sensible footwear.
It is a beautiful place to visit, hopefully we will return again another year.

Not much here, but the cafe on the roadside opposite the car park is really cute, the service was excellent, staff so friendly and we havd some briliant seafood there. A sweet little beach too.

Well not really recommended…not a beach to stay at…interesting to see the black “sand” and that’s it.
Sincerely speaking…it could be skipped.

Having visited Fuerteventura for over 20 years, today on a vist to Ajuy, we were shocked to discover that one of the most stunning scenic walks along the coast has been "apparently bought" by a group claiming to now own this historic piece of coastline. I have visited this village a number of times over the years to walk the path, look at the caves and eat in the great seafood restaurants......we won't be going back.

When you arrive to walk along the path there is little indication that anything has changed since our last visit 12 months ago....apart from a badly written sign at the foot of the cliffs which states "public road is free" . As you ascend the first part of the path and make your way around to the caves you are now confronted by a sign reading " private property" and a group of 5 men asking for payment at a makeshift entrance - when questioned I was told that a group had recently bought this part of the cliffs and introduced charges to visitors 4 weeks ago.

It would be interesting to know whether this part of the coastline has really been purchased & who from? Does this group have public liability insurance to cover their paying visitors? Why have they only bought the 'end' part of the path? Why not take payment at the start?

We did not pay the €7 each asked & when we returned to the village and questioned our waitress she told us not to pay & that it is "illegal" activity.

How is this being allowed to happen? This can only harm the good people of Ajuy who welcome visitors to their lovely fishing village. If tourists feel they are being ripped off they will stop coming, which would be a great shame.

In the past few days a company claiming to have legal title to the access to these 20 million year old caves has started to charge for access. The charge of 7.00 Euros for Adults and 3 Euros for children is an outrage and totally again'st the "Spanish National Monument" status of this area. DO NOT PAY TO VISIT THESE CAVES
