Apart from the sea views which to be fair you can get anywhere around the island, nothing to recommend this place, covered in graffiti surrounded by abandoned building site.

The Faro lighthouse is a nice place to walk to from Playa Blanca. The coastal path goes all the way out there. The lighthouse itself isn't a great thing to see - it's heavily grafitti'd. But, if you wander onto the rocks there are conflicting ocean currents in the area and the sea is really interesting.

The views were stunning along the way The path suddenly stops so not really great if you have a buggy/pushchair At the end....it is just a lighthouse, you can't go in (or climb... More

We saw this on a map, a light house but what a disappointment was hoping for something to stand out it did that but Light house isnt working and is covered in graffity, has some lovely views looking out of the sea and down to Playa Blanca. Due to the location would suggest getting a car but to be honest... More

This has the tall newer lighthouse with the small rundown old one next to it. Nothing to really look at as it is in quite a run down part of Faro Park. We had a walk down there late afternoon while it was still light and found it quite a creepy area. Quite a lot of graffiti and just generally... More

The walk out to the lighthouse is the best part of this attraction. The sea views across to Feurtaventura were lovely, just be aware the path is uneven in places whilst the paving stops altogether in some stretches.

The area is to the east of Playa Blanca. In an area where some development had started bjf they obviously ran out of money. Now its a vaguely depressing decaying building site covered in plastic bottles bags and other assorted debris

The lighthouse is quite a long walk from playa Blanca and it's really not worth it. Not much to see. I love lighthouses and was very disappointed with this one.

Worth visiting just for the views (and exercise if you've walked or cycled!!!!!) Nothing else here to see though. Landscape barren. Good on a windy day for watching the Atlantic 'rollers' crash against the rocks.

Nice views but looks a bit run down lovely views from the back pity that you can not look inside perhaps the playa blanca council could look in to this
