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

The pharos is not well signposted. The car park is rough and the area unfinished. The sea is spectacular, and as a gay cruising area its interesting.

A long walk if you have no car! Otherwise it is good for sunsets and big waves. Good views across to Fuerteventura. Its a bit of a waste ground area too with some graffiti .Lots of part finished villas no doubt due to the recession!

I have to laugh at the reviews which criticise the lighthouse! What do people expect from a lighthouse? Entertainment, lol? The lighthouse is purely the focal point for an enjoyable if lengthy walk from Playa Blanca. The views are lovely across to Fuerteventura and back towards PB and hills/volcanos. The waves crashing on rocks are beautiful. There's a lot of... More

If the clouds stay away! You'll need transport to get there or it's a good hike from the centre of Playa Blanca. The area is under-developed but it's a good vantage point for a spring sunset.
