We cycled here from iberostar hotel, lovely views but very out the way and dilapidated, walls were covered in graffiti, some rude not ideal for kids.

You expect from a landmark that prominent in view something special or magical - unfortunately even the "new" lighthouse makes you fear that something might break off (and actually did). This place looks like the abandoned lands end it marks. It perfectly fits to the broken investment dreams and unfinished apartment complexes this part of Playa Blanca is full off!... More

Start in Playa Blanca and stroll along the coastal walk to the Faro. NIce and easy. Enjoy the sight of the see beneath your feet :)

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
