Fuerteventura's Scenic Drives

The drive between Betancuria and Pájara on the FV30 is one of the most spectacular on the island, although possibly not for those suffering from vertigo. The narrow road twists and turns steeply between a flowing landscape of volcano peaks and lava fields, with the sea visible (at times) in the far distance. In spring, the peaks are surprisingly lush – a vivid green contrasting with the rich ochres and reds of the soil.

The journey via La Pared south towards Península de Jandía is almost as dramatic. Fuerteventura is relatively flat when compared to Lanzarote and the other islands to the west, but you would never know it as you wend your way through this lonely and spectacularly harsh terrain.
