Malpais de la Arena

The Malpaís de La Arena Natural Monument is located in the center of the municipality of La Oliva. This beautiful Natural Monument arose approximately ten thousand years ago thanks to one of the last volcanic eruptions of the island of Fuerteventura. Since the origin of this gorgeous landscape of great beauty and strange shapes, it has been practically unchanged by human hands, and precisely because of this in Malpaís de La Arena you can find some of the best populations of tabaibas, tarabillas, gorse and lichens of the Canary archipelago. In Malpaís we can also see La Arena Volcano, which is 420 meters high and the highest point of this beautiful natural monument.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
