Lajares, peaceful and scattered town in the north of Fuerteventura, it is surrounded by volcanoes and just a few minutes away from fantastic white sand beaches. Its population is especial and heterogeneous. People from various nationalities live in Lajares because it is a singular place: a naked landscape that keeps you exposed to the sun, sky, wind, lava and close to the ocean. Lajares offers all the basic services: school, pharmacy, shops, restaurants, supermarkets, ATM, sand ring (to practice the local wrestling version), and obviously, surf and other water sports shops.
