This is my favorite place on Lanzarote. The view is simply breath taking if you are lucky and the fog is gone. Do not forget your cammera home ;-)

I love this place. On a clear day you can see forever. :) Another Manrique marvel. It has a restaurant with two huge windows looking out over the Northern tip of the island over towards La Gracosia. Elevation is roughly 475m (1558 feet) above sea level, go outside to the viewing balcony, look down and have your breath taken away.... More

Superb viewpoint built by local architect Cesar Manrique into a cliff with wonderful views over the nearby island La Gracioso. Not much else to do beyond taking in the view albeit there is a gift shop and cafe on site.

State run overpriced cafe - but boy, what a view! We thought there would be more to see inside, but €4.50 to get into a cafe is a rip-off. However, what you get is the best view in Lanzarote.

After travelling 40 minutes, felt disappointed as all there is is the view. However the view is absolutely stunning and if the weather is right it would be spectacular. Be warned it is not some warm at this end of the island, and some of the roads to get there are challenging if coming from Teguise. If I had not... More

Save your money and just walk the road right beside it. Inside you pretty much only pay for the lookout and photo option. Wasn't worth the 4.50€ or so.

Have to admit i wasn't expecting much....even driving up to the car park. ..but once paying the reasonable fee of €4.50 to get in....we walked into the most amazing cafe with a window view that felt like you could see the whole world. This little hidden treasure had breathtaking views both outside and in...if you get chance to go... do... More

Worth a visit for couples or the whole family! Mirador Del Rio is located at the north western side of the island by a single main road, with free off road parking nearby. You pay a small fee to enter, (we paid 5€ per adult) you go though a small tunnel to come out into a large open area used... More

You arrive at a car park with a huge wall, strategically placed to obscure the view across to la graciosa! there was 5 of us over 25 euro for a picture! So we drove 200m dont the road and took the same pic for free! I would have felt totally ripped off if I had been suckered into going in!... More
