It's a lovely 50km drive from Playa Blanca in the south to this viewpoint in the far north but it is a must see attraction. Stunning views, even with clouds blowing over like we had today. The cafe inside has great food & service & full glass windows to enjoy the view. Don't miss it!

Stunning views from the top of the lookout over the island of La Graciosa - you could sit for hours just admiring it! On a clear day you can see for miles and miles and miles........Cafe and souvenir shop as well of course. This is yet another tribute to the artist Cesar Manrique who designed the buildings in his inimitable... More

Mirador del Rio is definitely worth a visit, especially if you have a car and can avoid going on a coach trip as the attraction is not that large. The view of the island of La Graciosa is truly something to rival a few more famous natural wonders around the world. The attraction itself, really adds to the view and... More

This point on the island offers amazing views and should be visited by all. Stand high up above the cliffs and look across to the island of La Graciosa. Once you are done head towards the beach far below!

Felt a bit robbed here as we paid in to see the panoramic views but all we saw was mists. Would be nice to be advised on the till or not get charged when only available service was the cafe and souvenir shop!

This is a must if you want to see the beautiful island of la Graciosa. Visit on a clear day and you will see a most spectacular breathtaking scene with plenty of photographic opportunities. Some reviews say it's scary at times driving but I would advise you to head towards Orzola that side of the costal route to get there... More

We hired a car and drove to here, quite scary at times but well worth it! The views are simply amazing and was amazed to see the clouds below where we were stood!!!

The Mirador del Rio along with all the other Cesar Manrique things are make Lanzarote a great place to visit. The Mirador is a spectacular viewing point that overlooks La Graciosa and is well worth the visit. Also just walk down the road and get a different view.

Hi Guys, Great view from that place ( sister island and 5 volcanoes) + you can get a nice coffee there. You will need to pay to enter but it is worth it. Be careful - it is very,very windy there - get yourself a coat. Have a good trip.

Visited "Mirador del Rio" In July 2014 whilst en-route to several Cesar Manrique attractions. Quite simply an AMAZING view, for goodness sake do not forget your camera. I've been cycling in the French Alps & the Pyrenees and this view easily matches some of the incredible sights that I've seen...................Don't look Down !!!!
