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.

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
