“Great spot to stop for drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Right on the beach front, next to the Mime/Statues that the seagulls seems to like, and easy to stop for a drink and watch the world go by - most relaxing.

“Lovely Situation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Lovely Spot on the Seafront, but would be nice to have some tourist information or history somewhere, instead you have a sign telling you to call a number for information.

There are some lovely sand sculptures in front of it & there are lovely views of the surfers on the beach.

“A nice spot in Maspalomas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

A nice spot in Maspalomas. Ideal for an sunset view walk along the pier. There are a lot of parkings available nearby, so it's easy to commute to. The pier is long, the Faro itslef maybe not astonoshing, but nicely located and well kept. It's a rating more for the experience on spot, rather than the lighthouse itself.

“Great or people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Went here in the evenings and it is where you go to see the beautiful people. Really chilled out and relaxing and only a 3 euro taxi ride from where I was staying in Campo Internacional.

“Lovely area”

Beach and restaurants to the left, promenade to the right which leads to more restaurants and shops. This whole area has class.
