“sea views and breaking waves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

might not be the most attractive looking place but climb over a few rocks and you have the most chilled out place. we loved sitting watching the waves breaking while the boys tried to catch crabs and fish, a place we returned to many times during our 2 week stay and cant wait to go back to x

“What's to say, it's a lighthouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Lighthouse surrounded by unoccupied and unsold housing. Marks the southern end of the island. A few cafes struggle nearby.

“If curiosity gets the better of you........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We walked along the other way for a change and walked right the way along to the old lighthouse, MOPU.
The coastline is beautiful and I think this was a surfer spot, a lot of the walkers enjoy
just sitting on the rocks drinking in the beauty of the coast.
This is not where you would come more than once, but curiosity will get you there in the first place.

“The lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

People don't actually go there for the lighthouse they go for the sunset and the sea views. Sunset view is spectacular. All you can see out there otherwise is the last remnants of the housing bubble in the area. Plots cleared that were never built on And forlorn looking lamp posts.
Rating is for the sunset alone.

“best avoided!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

we drove out to this lighthouse, but it was not worth the effort
a graffiti scrawled building, which is set on the edge of a run down housing estate (sorrowfully due to Spanish recession)
better to visit the nature reserve Papagayo at the other end of Playa Blanca
