Just outside of Pajara, you'll find the caves and black lava sands of Cuevas de Ajuy. This ancient fishing village is the site where Bethencourt disembarked to conquer the island for Spain in 1402. Enjoy freshly caught fish at one of the small restaurants on the beach, or have a drink at the bar up on the hill and enjoy expansive Atlantic views. While the waves are impressive to watch, swimming here isn't recommended because of the strong undertow. Don't miss a visit to the caves, free of charge and just a short walk up the path from the beach. Wear shoes with a good grip because the steps can be slippery.

I have been here a few times over the years and still keep returning. The views are stunning, the coarse black sand under foot and a lovely walk up over the cliffs. I will continue to keep coming...

If you visit the place is the best choice to relax and admire the sea. Great view, busy place, fresh and tasty food, as usual, we couldn't finish the fish and packed the rest for taking home. Prices reasonable. They can be a little bit more organized in offering the seats, we manage to find a chair without any help from their side. But let's say they have an excuse considering the hard work to make everyone happy there.
Not typical Canarian restaurant . Lots of oily fried food and little kindness. Waiters except low guy with little rhythm and no experience. Frozen food 😓😖. In other restaurants in the village you eat better and cheaper
