We decided to rent a car and drive to this attraction, although you can do it via a tour for €35 euros per person. Whichever way you decide to do it, I would recommend that you make the effort to go. The views from the viewing terrace are staggering. I didn't make use of the restaurant when i visited but... More

I love the design of Cesar Manrique. It's really nice. Hint: buy a comined ticket for several attractions when you have a car and don't just want to be at the beach. It pays off.

The views across the small stretch of water to the unspoilt island of La Graciosa are amazing. This is a short trip up to the north of Lanzarote (most places are a short trip on such a small island) and definitely worth the visit. The views are simply stunning. The wind at the time was very strong and almost pushing... More

If you have a short time in Lanzarote, please don't forget to visit this place. The view is truly outstanding and will remain with you for a very long time. There are "views" and "views", but this is a jaw-dropping view! Whatever angle you are looking from, you can't quite take it all in. If I had a pound for... More

Another wonderful design by the artist Cesar Manrique. The viewing platforms give the best views in Lanzarote. How they built this on top of a mountain is fantastic. Beautifully designed cafe with huge bay windows and views right across to the Island of La Graciosa.

This attraction is in the North of the island and affords spectacular views of the island of La Graciosa, on a clear day that is. The viewing platform is outside the cafe/restaurant area and you do need to watch your step. The sheer cliff drops down to a small beach and we watched a small boat/ferry leaving the island and...

What a treat was in store when we arrived in the bus, not knowing what to expect! The views on the day were absolutely spectacular. The rugged landscape with some hardy lavender plants eeking out an existence contrasted with the islands and the beautiful blue sea in the distance. Inside was light and airy with large windows, and all perched... More

Well worth a visit particularly at this time of year simply because the tour buses are far a few between. At time of visit the entry fee was 4.50€ per adult which for views is well worth it. The viewing platform is open but very uneven and would be difficult to access for someone in a wheelchair or who were... More

You can make a wonderful and short hike near famous Mirador del Rio, which is well known point on Lanzarote, However few people might discover nearby opportunity for hike. If you drive or walk from Mirador del Rio the road LZ202 towards cross with LZ 201, about 100 metres before Finca Corona, do not miss old paved road on your... More

This building by Cesar Manrique is effectively built into the clifface and on a clear day you can see the whole chain of islands to the north of Lanzerote.The views are from floor to ceiling picture windows - and you can have a decent affordable snack or coffee at the same time! A must to visit.
