La Pared - Fuerteventura

La Pared is a small town on the west coast of Fuerteventura, popular among surfers who come here for the great beach. The town only has a few bungalows, a hotel and some private villas and only one supermarket.

If you plan to go and visit the town there aren't many things to do or see, maybe just a few restaurants to have lunch or dinner.

The reason why you should visit this location is the amazing beach, one of the best in Fuerteventura. Other similar nice villages you can visit on the west side are Ajuy and Puertito de los Molinos.

La Pared is an ideal beach for surfing

Playa La Pared

Beach La Pared is 900 m long and just like other beaches situated on the west coast, it has strong winds and waves.

In order to get to the beach you can park the car near hotel Costa Real and then go down following the stone steps. It takes a few minutes to reach the beach and you'll have to be careful at the end where you will have to walk on some slippery rocks, but it's ok if you are careful and pay attention to the steps.

Many surfing schools come to Playa La Pared with their students, because the conditions are ideal for learning.

The beach is not suitable for swimming, since the waves are always strong, but you can lay on the beach and admire the landscape and natural beauty.

Playa La Pared has golden sand and it's usually more quiet than the places you can typically in resorts and bigger towns on the east coast.

The sunset in La Pared is truly spectacular, so you have the change to come here at sunset please do not hesitate, since it's a view you will always remember.

Playa del Viejo Rey

Playa del Viejo Rey, translates to the Beach of the Old King.

It is situated close to La Pared and the sand here is darker in colour.

The strong winds and waves make it also ideal for surfers and dangerous for swimming.

Again the landscape here it's beautiful so if you're in the area you can visit both the beaches of La Pared in order to decide for yourself which one you like best.

Both Playa La Pared and Playa del Viejo Rey are still wild and not many tourists come here, compared to the most popular places like Corralejo Grandes Playas or Sotavento.

If you want to explore more of Fuerteventura and discover its rough side, with the strong winds that give the island its name, then make the trip to the west coast and you will get to see a whole new image or Fuerteventura that you will also love.
