The original lighthouse dates from 1866. It has a small tower and is attached to a stone lighthouse keepers house. Pretty but disappointing that it hasn't been given some... read more

Quite a long walk (easy bike ride) from town to here with limited drink stops on way so make sure you take some water. Nothing much to see except a graffiti clad building but something to do on a cloudy morning. Be warned though - you can still burn!!

The original lighthouse dates from 1866. It has a small tower and is attached to a stone lighthouse keepers house. Pretty but disappointing that it hasn't been given some protection as an historic building (especially as Manrique was so strong on preserving the islands rich legacy) therefore it is in a somewhat shabby state The views are superb across to...

The Lighthouse is situated at the Faro Park end of the Island . It's a long walk from the town , a taxi is about €4. It's a bit run down but there's lovely views. It's well worth a visit and the best time to visit is when it's "SUNSET" we have watched the sun go down a few times... More

. The lighthouse is at the very end of the generally pleasant coastal promenade - although it degenerates a little towards the end. I suppose it has the advantage of being seen as your objective as you are walking, but other than that has little to say for itself. One poster talks about eating in the cafe there - must... More

We have visited this little café every time we holiday in Lanzarote, it is run by an English couple and a great place to go for Breakfast and to buy fresh bread, cakes and quiches.

This lighthouse is no longer in manned and , as such, the buildings are rapidly falling into disrepair. Instead of standing proud on its own peninsular it is now surrounded by new developments but an advantage is that it is easily accessible by a seaside path instead of having to walk miles to reach it. Well worth a visit if... More

Lovely walk and it's about 4/5 kilometres from the port, 4 from Flamingo Beach. It's very baron but worth going to as the promenade is fully paved.

It took us an hour and a quarter to walk here from our hotel but it was a pleasant stroll along a well-paved promenade with plenty of cafes and bars on the way. Lovely views of Fuerteventura.
