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.

Nice walk along the promenade at playa Blanca. Spoiled only by the decrepit men, who deem it necessary to display their ailing bodies. Cover it up is best, unless you have something worth looking at.You will see the ferry going to Fuerteventura and the cliffs nearing the lighthouse. If you fancy a Stroll and to get away from the shops,... More

The view from these cliffs are so beautiful! The lighthouse wasn't open for visitors and there's a bit of graffiti on the walls, but the view to the ocean is gorgeous with the crystalline blue waters crashing into the rocks.

From the centre of Playa Blanca it's an easy walk along the paved promenade. The last 100 yards or so is rough but still a worthwhile walk. Lots of opportunity to be distracted for a coffee or an ice cream or just to stop and gaze!

It's a Lighthouse, what more can you say other than unless you are well into walking, I would not go out of your way to find it. The Avenida Maritima almost goes to the lighthouses and this is a nice long walk if you are able to, or you can now catch the local bus No. 30 from the bus... More

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.
