Ajuy is a small fishing village on the island's west coast, close to the Betancuria border.
When Betancuria existed as the island's capital is was served by the port of Ajuy until it was raided by pirates.
Black sand makes up Ajuy beach and Caleta Negro (Black Bay) sits at a distance of approximately 2 km. Here you can find caves within the limestone rocks, and these were once a hiding place for pirates.
The limestone from this area was considered to be the most pure, and much of it was transported from these caves up until the mid 19th century.
Ajuy is located in Ajuy, Fuerteventura.
