In 1966 La Pared made its attempt to become a new exclusive tourist town in the south of the island. At present the town still only consists of small bungalows, a hotel and some private detached houses.
Situated in on the North west coast of Jandia, La Pared gets its name from the stone wall which allegedly ran from East to West coast of the island that divided Fuerteventura in two halves (Maxorata and Jandia).
The town's water supply comes from the natural caverns in the mountains free of charge because only gravity is needed for pressure not pumps. All the major roads are finished but you'll find access to the beaches is via dirt tracks.
To be honest, there isn't a great deal in the village, but there are some great restaurants in the area, a golf practice course with tee offs covered in artificial grass, and a horse-riding school.
A great place to spend a family day out is at the restaurant Bahia Mar which has a panoramic view of the coast, a fully equipped swimming pool with water slide, and children's playground. After your meal you can sit on the terrace or stroll down to the local beach to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets.
If you fancy escaping from your resort for the day you can get to La Pared via road from Pajara or from the road north of Costa Calma.
