It is an area formed by small ravines, among which stands out the aforementioned ravine of Ajuy and the Barranco del Aulagar and of lomos that descend from the mountains to the sea, where the coastal cliff that runs along the west coast of Fuerteventura is formed. It is a rugged relief area, except for the small plain of Comisian Board. In the area we find an important colony of tarajales and palm trees.

It is cited in the Geographical-Statistics-Historical Dictionary of Pascual Madoz (1845-1850) as an irrigated agricultural area that produced millo, potatoes, barrel, fruits and cotton, although its population was testimonial, being limited to 4 earthhouses and 3 huts inhabited by 9 neighbors. Throughout the twentieth century the sparse population of the area persisted thanks to livestock, agriculture and fishing, the latter limited by the conditions of the sea.

Next to the small village is the beach of the same name, also known as Puerto de la Peña, since in previous historical moments it served as a place of embarkation of cereals and cattle of the island of Fuerteventura to the interior market .

What an amazing place well worth a visit the caves are so wonderful you need sensible shoes and be pretty fit because the steps and slopes are steep the views from the cliff tops are amazing watching the water and the waves crashing against the rocks.
