La Pared

La Pared is a small town on the western coast of Fuerteventura, about 5km north of the better known Costa Calma (which is on the east coast though – this is the narrowest part of the island).

La Pared does have some tourist infrastructure, sandy beaches and generally beautiful coastline, but it is overall much quieter than the resorts on the south-eastern coast. Its main attractions include hiking (along the varied coastline or as a starting point to Jandia Peninsula) and surfing – there are surf schools and shops in the town.

How to Get to La Pared

The easiest way to get to La Pared is via the FV-2 main road (the road to Jandia), which you leave just before Costa Calma. The road number is FV-605. Alternatively you can arrive from the north from Pajara, using the same road FV-605.

Restaurants in La Pared

There are a few good restaurants in La Pared, most notably:

  • Bahia La Pared
  • El Camello

Directions not needed – La Pared is very small and you can’t miss them.

Pared Isthmus

Pared Isthmus (Istmo de la Pared) is the narrowest point where Jandia Peninsula starts in south-western Fuerteventura. It is only slightly over 4km from one coast to the other in the narrowest point and there are paths you can walk – it is one of my favourite hiking places in Fuerteventura.

The hiking trails are accessible from either La Pared, Costa Calma (there is an underpass under the new motorway) or via a dirt road off the main road from Costa Calma to La Pared. Some people drive on the Pared Isthmus trails – please don’t. Not only you can harm the precious environment (it is a natural reserve), but you can also damage your car, as there are many rocks.
