The old lighthouse still stands tall on the landscape. You can't get inside but can admire from nearby. Despite the negative reviews about the graffiti (yes, like many derilict buildings it does have graffiti on it), we enjoyed going there and sitting on the rocks enjoying the sunset and sea.

The lighthouse is in a wonderful position, as it would be ! The surrounding area is obviously a victim of the "Property Slump" with one or two wonderful villas standing in the middle of unkempt building plots and half finished developments. It is worth a visit and a relatively easy walk from the Port of Playa Blanca.

The walk from the hotels along the promenade is good and worth doing unless the trade winds are blowing strongly. It looked like the last 500 m of rough path had been fixed up to a high standard recently. We nowhere encountered difficulty in the walk. It is suitable for wheelchairs. No trip hazards. A possibility here and there to... More

It's a lighthouse, that's about it, the immediate area leaves a lot to be desired in need of development. On the plus side the walk on the front from Playa Blanca itself is excellent for those who like a good walk. All in all nothing to get excited about.

We were only staying down the road and had a car so we popped down. Such a shame it has been left to rot as it is such a lovely building. The views are spectacular and the wind really blows the cobwebs away.

We stayed in a villa about half mile from the lighthouse - it beckoned us and looked amazing from afar - but the closer we got the more disappointed we became - so sad to see a beautiful lighthouse neglected and covered in graffiti - it's a wonderful attraction and truly deserves a face lift

Drove to the lighthouse ,not very well signposted.Very disappointed when we got there as looks very run down and covered in graffiti.have visited El cotillio lighthouse on fuertuventura ,which is much better looked after. The view across to fuertuventura is worth it though.

Worth parking by the lighthouse and then scrambling around on the rocks to get a fantastic view of the waves on a windy day.(There are plenty of windy days!) Not suitable for little ones.

A long walk, roughly around 45 minutes from staying at Lanzasur Club and an hour from the port. Graffiti strewn old lighthouse with bare new one, you need to cross some pretty rough terrain for the last 500 yards to get there. It wasn't worth the hassle!

The lighthouse is very much to one side of Playa Blanca, so it means a very long walk to view it, but if you drive up that end, or get accommodation nearby, then worth a quick visit.
