Luckily got there 5 minutes before sunset and enjoyed the spectacle. Good views of Fuerteventura to the south too. The interesting old lighthouse is next door, but sadly much graffitied. Best reached by car, but possible by walking from the number 30 bus on the main road.

Visiting the llighthouses is OK but they are nothing special. What is good however is the lovely walk along the coast to the lighthouses. We often catch the local bus to near here and walk back to Playa Blanca or Vica Versa.

And thats all. If you like lighthouses you could walk around and relax and take as many pictures as you can. Otherwise it is place just to stop by. But is is mostly empty so the chances you are there alone to enjoy the views are pretty high. It is also quite windy place so it better to take a... More

This is a nice place for a quick look but there is nothing there and once you have seen it you have seen it. Don't go especially, not worth it.

We had a wonderful walk to the lighthouse, the natural beauty of the headland and the crashing waves is in stark contrast to the old lighthouse covered in graffiti - the impression was only highlighted by the two policeman lounging against the wall having a crafty cigarette! Not everything has to be beautiful to be an experience1

It was a lovely bike ride on the sea front. I didn't have issue with the paved path ending, there was a track to follow, not hard to ride on, even my 5 year old managed it without problems. I did like the graffiti on the walls, have some great photos from there and the sea was lovely around there,... More

We rode along the promenade from papagoya beaches to this lighthouse at the other end. We were hoping to be able to ride right up to it but the path stops about roughly 500m before the lighthouse. We chose not to go up to it as it was an awful site. It had graffiti all over it and as said... More

Spent a nice morning walking to the lighthouse, you can't go in or anything but good to be at the southern most point of the Island. Good views over to Fuertaventura and large breaking waves over the rocks. Stopped at a nice little bar for a fresh orange juice on the way back. Fab.

This attraction is a real let down, my son was desperate to visit this "grand lighthouse" however when we got there the original lighthouse was derelict and covered in graffiti and the newer one was bland and uninteresting. The area it was situated in was like wasteland with regular comings and goings of locals "cruising" and other activities. It's a... More
