La Pared - The Place
La Pared on the south-west coast of Fuerteventura has a transfer time from the airport of thirty minutes. Surrounded by a barren landscape, La Pared overlooks a beautiful white sandy beached washed by the bright blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a small resort with a limited number of hotels. Most of the accommodation consists of villas or small apartments. The resort is three hundred metres from the beach which is accessed via a dirt road. The beach is typical of the west coast of the island with rolling waves and good surfing conditions. Care must be taken with children and less confident swimmers as there can be strong undercurrents. The few restaurants serve excellent food, but for greater variety and for shopping, trips to other resorts are necessary. The village has a nine hole golf course and in nearby Jandia there is an eighteen hole course. There is also a horse-riding school.
Hikers will enjoy the long walk to the top of Pico de Zarza, at 807 metres the highest point on the island, where the view is absolutely stunning and well worth the effort. Go prepared with water, food and hats as there is no shade. The Jandia National Park is also worth exploring.
In order to make the most of your holiday car hire is recommended. The island is best explored by hiring a 4x4 or by taking a guided jeep safari. The many inland villages with their cobbled streets and whitewashed dwellings simply ooze charm. Here you can enjoy the best of traditional food.
La Pared holidays offer complete relaxation in a picturesque resort with a mountainous backdrop, sandy shores and a brilliant blue sea.
La Pared Nightlife
La Pared is as relaxed by night as it is by day with evenings spent wandering the streets or the beachfront enjoying a meal and a drink in the company of family and friends.
Since one of the attractions of shopping in the Canary Islands is that goods are virtually tax free, La Pared’s paucity of shops necessitates a trip to Jandia or even further afield. Jandia's shops supply holiday essentials as well as the usual number of gift and souvenir stalls and kiosks. Popular purchases include leather goods, embroidered linens and pottery.
La Pared Eating
La Pared has two excellent restaurants serving a diverse cuisine and catering for most tastes. A short car journey brings you to Playa Jandia where there is a much greater choice. A good way to sample Spanish food is to order a plate of tapas which consists of a medley of bite-sized dishes. Tapas are also ideal for filling the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner, which is served later in Spain than at home.
Children are always made very welcome in Spanish restaurants and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated.
Local wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
