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.

The lighthouses here old and new aren't worth going to see. However, the trip out from the centre of Playa Blanca by foot or on the bus gives great views and some lively experiences of the sea breaking on the point.

Nt much to see here, granted the walk or bike ride from the marina to the lighthouse is very gd. Once you arrive here its very disappointing as there isnt much to see at all except an old graffitti riddled run down building.

We have walked there and back every time we have visited Playa Blanca. Not been for over ten tears and in the meantime they have extended the promenade which makes it much easier to get to. Great views & great breezes

Its about 5 miles return walk from Playa Blanca along a delightful coastal walk, which is still unfinished in places. The lighthouse area is a bit disappointing with graffiti and could do with some TLC to make it more attractive. There is a large car park by the 'Faro'.

Not much to see after a pleasant enough walk. Shame it is not open to the public or any information on it or the older vandalised lighthouse building. So for somewhere to walk to with OK views and a few bars along the the way for a drink it is fine to pass a couple of hours.

Its a nice walk along the promenade to get to the lighthouse, but when you get there, there's nothing to do. The lighthouse is beaten up and the base is covered in graffiti View of ocean is no better here than anywhere else

Nothing to see or do that makes it unique from the rest of the Island. Also quite remotely located so not worth to drive to unless you are in the neighbourhood.
