Interestin defensive tower with good view over the sea towards Fuerteventura and Losbos.

This can be accessed via the promenade from Playa Blanca and the Rubicon Marina. Good views over the sea to the neares islands.

the promontory where this tower is is worth a look but the structure is very much what you see is what you get as there is no access in it or on it

It is just a round building with one room you can view through a iron grill,The information is in Spanish there is nothing in English so we did not know what the building's history was or what it was there for.

A worthwhile photo on your walk to Papagayo beaches but not much else. Seems to be in quite a random place all in all.

Castillo de las Coloradas, sits on a clifftop above the beach. Originally built in the 18th Century to stop pirates raiding the south coast of the island, this castle is a fine example of traditional Canarian military architecture. A relic of a bygone age.

Well worth the walk to see this unique building which also allows for some spectacular views. Just passed the Rubicon Marina.

We looked at this but unable to read the information about it as not in English. We have taken a photo and will try to translate it. Be careful not to slip and keep children close to you as may be tempted to get too close to the edge

A nice walk along the coastal path and a very easy climb to get a good view across the sea. There is a little history written on the walls.
