Nice for the views but that's all

The waves and tides clash at this peninsula and so provide a great location to look out and have a expansive view.

We came here twice to watch the sunset. We discovered it completely by chance when we were out in the car. On the rocks below the lighthouse there are a number of large rock pools for exploring when the tide is out. The wind whips up the waves into white horses too which is cool to see. If you're into...

It was a good walk from our hotel with beautiful sea views. The old lighthouse looks very sorry for itself though and is covered in graffiti. The main lighthouse is not open to the public and is at the end of a road of unfinished buildings and open scrubland. An information board to explain something about the lighthouse would be... More

worth a stroll along the sea front to the lighthouse...it's more about the walk and the view to the sea than the lighthouse

Nothing really there except the old and new lighthouse. Not worth the effort. Nothing else to see apart from some rock pools.

We were staying in Playa Blanca which had a nice Paseo Maritimo,( a promanade to us non Spanish). If you keep walking out of Playa Blanca you eventually reach the Faro(lighthouse) it's got very little qualities other than its a good walk to get to and back again. Probably taking about an hour each way. We did this walk late... More

Although the lighthouse itself isn't much to look at it is worth walking to especially when the sea is rough as there are currents that meet by the lighthouse making for some interesting wild waves. Dangerous to swim in but great for watching. also worth keep walking round to the quieter side but few seem to bother.

From the centre of Playa Blanca it will take approx. 45-50 minutes to walk to the lighthouse. Virtually the whole walk is on block paving so easily accessible apart from the last few hundred yards which is on a track. Take your camera!
