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

A visit to this lighthouse is a must to see the views of fuerteventura and the sea....as well as views of the Femes Hills etc. Recommended if you have a car! The unfinished properties are unsightly but done spoil the experience.

A must see I was told. Dragged hubby along. Took photo's to prove we went. Cannot go in or anything. The best part was the walk along the prom back to Playa Blanca port. A long windy walk as it turned out, but the views are amazing.

Hmmm... it's just a tower with a light. I don't thinkit's worth a special trip. Nice walk from Playa Blanca, though.

Well worth the sea front walk .from the centre of playa Blanca follow the promenade from the port right ,it will take an hour of steady walking but with cafes and bars along the way it's easy. Just as you round the last bay the light house comes into view .the sea and views of furterventura are well worth the... More

Given three stars due to the fact the lighthouse building is covered in graffiti and there is litter everywhere. However, its the best place to view the sunset
