we could see the lighthouse from playa blanca..so we gave it a go...as it was a distance from our hotel, we got a taxi as near as we could.so sad that the area has been left with litter and graffiti..pity the local history group has not cleaned the area..for it is a part of the local history...

We walked here from faro park where we were staying. The walk was very enjoyable. The lighthouse a bit disappointing. The area where it stands looks abandoned and a target for graffiti artists. Great views to Playa Blanca and Punta Limones

Maybe worth spending 10 minutes so that you can say you've been there. The immediate area is a dump and has litter problems but should not be taken as typical of Lanzarote as a whole which is normally litter free and has a number of hard working individuals to ensure that it stays that way.

Standing in an almost derelict area, the lighthouse can be seen from great distances. You cannot go up into the lighthouse but you can walk round below it. There us a lovely coastal path which runs both North and South from this point. Take the North route and you will find bars, restaurants and hotels along the way. Give yourself... More

the walk thereto on the promenade is very worth doing. But the place around this faro and the building itselve is not worth visiting. the little wall around the square is not inviting to visit this faro

It's a real shame this great local landmark has been left to ruin . There is no effort to mark this monument ,the walk way runs out just before you get there and could easily be built across to the light house ,the location is spectacular the waters around are well worth the walk , you have to cross the...

The old lighthouse is all tagged and the site is a bit desolated. Good view on Fuerte Ventura and the sea

It provides a pint to walk towards. We walked towards the lighthouse one morning, great walk, flat, quite a few places to stop for drinks etc. There is nothing else there as others have reported but we enjoyed the exercise.

We had a lovely walk along the promenade to the lighthouse and there is no doubt that it offers beautiful views. It is a pity however that there is nothing else there. The lighthouse is shut and there is no cafe or bar to stop, sit and relax.
