It's a great landmark but it should be made safe and opened to attract more visits. Portable toilets are now there as well as an information spot. These were never open during our 3 week stay but I trust that will happen soon.

Peaceful little spot located just east of the Rubicon marina. Easy walk up to the fort, it is however closed which is a shame. Some nice photo ops, but as mentioned, take care near the edge on a blowy day.

Close to Marina Rubicon. An easy uphill walk for some lovely views across Playa Blanca and over to Fuertaventura.

Some really nice photos to be got up there around the cliffs. Wouldn't plan a day around a visit here, you'll be done in 5 mins. Still nice to see though

This place looked really cool walking along away from our cruise boat. walking up there, it really was not that exciting or special. Just take a picture and keep going, unless you have time to kill.
