We could see the lighthouse from our hotel (Natura Palace) and saw the most beautiful sunsets behind it. We walked along the promenade to the lighthouse but apart from the sea crashing onto the rocks, there is very little to see.

There is a long, well made path alongside the sea that runs along from the main parts of the resort of Playa Blanca to this lighthouse. It makes a great stroll, but there isnt a great deal to see when you get there - and the graffiti makes it look rather run down. have a quick look then go and... More

If you enjoy a good sunset, then drive out to this lighthouse just as the sun is going down and enjoy a great view, with the sea splashing on the rocks below you and islands aglow with the setting sun - try it and enjoy

The lighthouse is really lovely to see operating from a distance, which we were able to do as we were staying a stones throw from it and had unimpeded views of it. However, it is a little sad when you make the journey towards it and then see it in front of you! There are a lot of properties as... More

Well worth a visit and a walk round the building but not a lot to see. We have found that the best day to visit is when the weather is wild as it does whip up the surf. The light is still operational in the evening but is now automatically operated. You can enjoy a walk from Faro Park along... More

We drove to the lighthouse but it is accessible on foot but a bit of a rough track the last few hundred yards. Go at high tide and watch the sea splashing over the rocks!

Don't bother, the lighthouse area is a bit run down & messy & the buildings are covered in graffiti.

Local landmark, it is what it is. Are more beautiful spots in the world, but also uglier. Good spot to watch the sun go down.

It's a long walk from Playa Blanca but we drive and then walk away from Playa Blanca along the cliff path ( very rough !! ). Always a lovely breeze but you need plenty of sun cream as no shade. If you have the energy the walk to the abandoned hotel it is really worth it .....

We only visited because we were staying close by, nothing really worth going out your way to see so would not go out your way to visit if you are staying further afield, it was relaxing and peaceful so that was a bonus.
