Amazing views from this beautiful lighthouse in Fuerteventura. Unfortunately the coffee shop is closed due to Covid-19… hoping it opens again soon!

Take water and a camera! Well worth a visit, the lighthouse was shut, but the views were great. It took us 50 minutes to get up to the top and 45 back (against an embracing wind!)

All round great experience

Monday 16th November and we drove the 7 kilometres from the town of Playatis to visit this Lighthouse.

Although a surfaced road it was narrow, rather steep as it winded it's way up to the top of the cliff, 196 metres above sea level. It did feel a bit precarious at times.

We did enjoy some stunning scenery as we wound our way along. Nothing prepared us for our sheer amazement as we turned the final corner to see this stunning structure in front of us.

The building consists of 3 linked towers, with the largest in the centre with the light on its top.

It is still operational and not open to the public. Visitors can park up in the spaces walk up close to the Lighthouse to have a look and take photographs.

It was built in a Moorish style with brown/orange coloured stone and whitewashed cement. It was completed in 1955 and it is the 3rd highest lighthouse in the Canaries.

There is also a small viewing platform, Mirador de la Entallada,  that visitors can walk out on to the edge of and enjoy the incredible views.

Before we set out to visit here, we were not expecting such an enjoyable experience as we had, including the drive up and back down. Fuerteventura does not seem to stop impressing us as it reveals its treasures to us.

Amazing Architecture
Jun 2020 • Couples
Had this place on my list for a year or 2, finally made it, but only just.
The road is ok if your sensible & drive steady, but watch out for mad arse boy racers driving much to fast on the narrow hairpin section.
Luckily we live to tell the tale & made it to the lighthouse.
Notices say beware windy, & boy they weren't joking.
The lighthouse itself is an amazing structure, but the views from the end of the path are top draw, but even windier.

Another lighthouse ticked of the list, plus an uneventful drive down

Note; as usual T/A map position is wrong, but luckily its sign posted

Must visit - landmark
Jun 2019 • Solo
This place is so cool. A landmark for the area. A must visit if you stay in Playitas Resort. Run. Bike. Or take the car. Its 6,5 k from Playitas. The last 1000m up is a real cool climb.

The road to get here is a little scary but as long as you take it steady two cars can pass... views are amazing. The lighthouse is an impressive building but no access in side.
