A special island
With a total surface area of 383.6 square kilometres (23,11% of the total for the island) Pájara is the largest district on Fuerteventura.
Two large areas characterise its territory. On the one hand, the North, the basal complex which it shares with the rest of the island. On the other, the South, the Jandía Peninsula.
A morphology of ancient volcanic activity, which has undergone much erosion, is reflected in its 150 kilometre coastline (the longest of any Spanish municipal district) including some 70 kilometres of beaches.
The conjunction of ancient volcanic activity, complex in its contours, has in Pico de la Zarza (807 metres), the island’s highest point.
The distance from the capital (41,5 km In the case of Pájara and over 84 from the area of Morro Jable) make this a relatively remote area, in many ways distinct from the rest of the island.
