Betancuria Rural Park is in the region of Betancuria, covering 90% of its area, although it also encompasses part of the regions of Puerto del Rosario, Antigua, Pájara, and Tuineje, covering an area of 16,544 hectares of Fuerteventura.
We’re talking about crags, mountain ranges, slopes, and ravines that intertwine to shape this kilometre-long natural space, with a healthy presence of native vegetation and fauna.
The vegetation you’ll find includes tabaiba, jorjao, dogwood, palm trees, and tamarisks. There are also birds like Egyptian vultures, canaries, tits, shelducks, and grey teals.
The landscape of the Park is characterised by its unique colour, the proliferation of small hills in contrast with the ravines, and the moderately tall mountains that stand out above the terrain, like Morro Jable, Morro de la Cruz, Gran Montana or Morro Jana, all of which are over 650 metres in height.
You can enjoy the park in all its splendour from the Morro Velosa viewpoint.
