Hard to rate this attraction. The view is an easy 5 stars, it's stunning and we spent a fair while just taking it all in. The problem is that it feels a bit like paying for entrance in to an expensive cafe, there literally is the view (which you can see almost as well down the road) and a cafe.... More

Well worth the trip from Playa Blanca in the South. There are stunning views. Very windy when we were there so a coffee in the restaurant overlooking the cliffs was very welcome.

The view is admittedly very good, but it is not worth the considerable cost of entry. There is nothing else there but a restaurant (of course ) and a small shop with tourist trinkets, better to walk past the headland and nearly the same view for free.

This is one of Cesar Manrique's creations, a restaurant and Tourist Centre with spectacular views over to la Graciosa island. Nice place to relax with a cool drink and admire the view. Take binoculars if you have them.

Viewing point for La Graciosa, cafe with amazing views, built by Cesar Manrique into the rock, making very little visual impact on the surrounding countryside - a trademark of Manrique, to let the architecture complement rather than detract from the natural surroundings. Quite understated, if this had been in GB they would have made it much more commercialised. Much better... More

We hired a car and drove here having been recommended to come and see the view by a friend. The views over to the island are wonderful. Take your binoculars if you have some. we had a coffee in the cafe after enjoying the scenery. Well worth a visit.

Don't go........if you get vertigo, otherwise.........wow what a view. Not much more to say really. There is a cafe but we did not try it and also a small souvenir shop to browse. It cost €4.50 to get in and in my view, the view was worth it.

Another Manrique masterpiece. Definitely worth the drive to the north tip of the island to gaze over the sea to La Graciosa. A cafeteria and gift shop are skilfully moulded into this amazing viewpoint. I would definitely have placed this attraction higher in our guide book to Lanzarote.
