The village of Pájara gives its name to the region in which it is situated. Quiet and assuming, it offers the visitor a unique opportunity to see the real Fuerteventura village life, away from the tourist hotspots. Unlike most towns and villages on the island, Pájara is blessed with an abundance of trees, bushes, and even manicured lawns, to offer shade and comfort to a weary traveller. It also boasts a freshwater pool to dive in to on a hot summer's day. The local church is spectacular and free to enter. It holds an annual festival within its grounds with traditional food and wine for everyone to enjoy.

Location: Year-round sun and kissed by the Atlantic Ocean

The Canary Islands, specifically the island of Fuerteventura, are the home of the region of Pájara. The most southern area of the island, it is visited by thousands of tourists annually who want the year-round sunshine and sandy beaches the region offers. The coastline is the longest of all the Spanish municipalities and offers some of the finest beaches you will find anywhere in the world. One peculiarity of the region is that the west coast beaches are made up of black sand, whereas the east coast has long stretches of fine, white sand to make it truly an area of contrasting beauty.

Culture: Ruins, religion, and possible Aztec influences

The 17th Century church of Nuestra Señora de Regla in the village has a festival on the 2nd of July each year. Everyone gets involved and dresses up for the occasion and if you happen to be there, you can rest assured you will be invited to join in. The main entrance of the church was built in a peculiar style that some experts profess to show an Aztec influence with its motifs and carvings of a panther, snakes, and birds alongside depictions of the sun.

Activities: Head inland for a treat

The main activities in the area are provided around the beaches and resorts. There are water sports activities everywhere, and the region holds the windsurfing world championships each year. For many visitors to Pájara, the only activity they will wish for is a relaxing break on the beach, but take a day out and head inland to see some hidden delights. There is a rugged landscape to the island that shows its volcanic past, and the lava field at Tuineje is well worth a visit, just take decent footwear, as the rocks can be very sharp in places. For a bit of great fun, try camel riding in the Oasis Park, and make sure you take a camera to capture the moments of getting on and off these ungainly looking, yet sure-footed animals.
