The walk along the beautiful promenade as fantastic and the Castillo provides a focal point but it isn't possible to get inside so not a lot to see. You can go up the steps half way up and there is an information sign. There are toilets next to the Castillo but they were locked when we were there.

Don't waste time visiting this. Although a lovely walk from the Mirador hotel, there wasn't much to do or see here. We were bored, took a few photo's but that was all.

Really not that much to see, because you can't go inside, but the steps were nice, as if made of lava. And behind the Castillo if you reach the end of the cliff you get a beautiful view.

An early evening walk upto this historic fort provides an opportunity to take in beautiful views of the Rubicon Marina through to Playa Blanca, and facing in the other direction the beaches of Papagayo.

Nice looking building on a headland which is quite spectacular and unusual but there is no access. Couple of pics from the outside and you're done here. Would be much better if you could see inside, I would have paid a few euro for the priveledge but nothing doing. Worth a quick look if you're out for a walk but... More

Castillo de las Coloradas affords great views across Playa Blanca and across to Fuertevntura and to the East across the cliffs towards Papagayo. There is an information board with an english translation expliaing the Castillo. You can walk around the Castillo but beware of the cliffs which remain unguarded especially if you have children with you.

We walked past this every day on way to Marina Rubicon but decided to have a look around one day. What you see in the picture is what you get, it's not open so you just take photos on the step. Word of caution it's exposed to high winds so take off hats etc as they blow into the sea... More

Lovely building situated on the cliff top overlooking an amazing sea view. Not a long stay place to visit maybe 15 minutes but just a good photo opportunity.

Simply a lovely remote place to look across the sea and watch the world go by. Can get windy at times due to the openess but well worth a visit if you want some lovely views for pictures etc
