Worth the trip from PDC for the view alone. Cafe nice enough too. Stylishly designed by Manrique. That's about it. To get there, we took the route up the middle of the island (ie via Teguise) , which is slower and more scenic, but on the downside , the kids got car sick !

At the top of Lanzarote Island lies this gem of a viewing point. Get there in the morning. By afternoon it usually fogs over. View is spectacular. Literally cut into the face of a cliff, you walk onto a balcony looking straight onto the Atlantic and over the Los Graciosa island. Only a short visit is required but it is... More

Had to cancel first visit as too much cloud but returned after market one Sunday afternoon and so glad we did! The view is phenomenal!! You can have a drink and something to eat whilst you are here.

Don't forget your camera (as we did) or 1euro for the telescope. Amazing views over to Grasiosa so long as it is not too cloudy.

Looking out from this Cesar Manrique designed space gives you one of the most spectacular views ever! It is like being on top of the world! Stuart Forster from ecolifewalks brought me to this hidden gem within volcanic rock situated to view Isla Graciosa and the vast ocean. It is breathtakingly beautiful and is part of what Stuart does so... More

Lovely drive to get here... volcanic fields and some rolling hills. On a sunny clear day this would be amazing. My day was cloudy but it was still magnificent.

When we visited it was a beautiful bright sunny day with a small amount of whispy cloud, you can drive up and see some views for free but to experience it all entry is €9 each or do the deal 3 attractions for €20 each far better deal. The views from both the cafe and viewing platforms are incredible, it... More

Visited here recently whilst on our hols. Think it was 4 euros a head. The views are great. Right across the channel to the island of La Graciosa. Take a few snaps and that's about it though t.b.h. The Mirador building itself is a Cesar Manrique design and is basically a cafe with a view. It's nice enough if you're... More
