Majanicho  Tours

When it comes to remoteness and volcanic landscapes, the Canary Islands are good at making you feel like you’re a world away. And the barely-a-village, bayside Majanicho only adds to that magic. It will have you feeling like you’re on an expedition on the face of the moon – albeit one that includes surf-worthy beaches and an ocean.

Located along the northern coast of Fuerteventura, Majanicho is—at least for now—less a village than it is a collection of somewhat ramshackle houses cuddled up around the watery finger of a bay. Don’t expect to find restaurants or shops here, and rather just a rocky coast, and crystal-blue waters filled with the occasional dinghy used for fishing. 

And then, of course, there are the surfers -- from windsurfers to kiteboarders and just regular old surfers – who know that these secluded waters offer up some great opportunities to catch either waves or wind. That is, however, as long as one takes great caution: the underwater volcanic rock makes these shores a natural booby trap for those not especially careful.

How long this humble paradise will remain so quiet is yet to be seen: a nearby housing develop is underway, and there’s word that this charming little bay may be turned into a harbor. Really, though, all the more reason to see it for yourself before it transforms into a tourist hot spot.

Practical Info

Majanicho is located just north of the town of Lajares, and at the end of a short dirt-track road. Though quite close to the town of Corralejo (and its neighboring dunes), this northern corner of Fuerteventura is virtually inhabited, which means the drive takes a little longer (about 20 minutes).
