My friend and I have been staying in El Cotillo and every person we have spoken to has recommended we visit the lighthouse, it’s museum and cafe! We decided we’d give this a go, the walk along the seafront took approximately an hour an a...More

Visiting this exposed corner of the island is worth the drive. The sea views are great and the museum is good too, if you find it open. Despite the sun you will usually appreciate a windproof jacket.

It is a nice drive to the lighthouse, worth the views when you get there. If you are interested in Paleontology then then it is a significant place to visit

Although the Lighthouse was closed, we enjoyed the drive along the coast road from Corralejo. The views are amazing. We stopped and watched the Wind Surfers, which was such a sight. We must return when the Lighthouse is open. By the way the coast road...More

It was our first stop touring the island for a day. We had a coffee there at the small cafe and sat outside enjoying the ocean. A quite windy spot where you can search for fossiles. I love the colors of the lighthouse and the...More

This large, impressive, red and white lighthouse, is in need of a lick of paint. The sizeable building incorporates a museum, gift shop and cafe, though why as a public building, it closes on a Monday, is a mystery. You can also see the smaller...More
