“Exceptional and suggestive place”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

El faro de Maspalomas is a very nice area. Walk along the small promenade and through the many little restaurants close to the beach.
I suggest to go to visit the desert area which is just about 300 mt from El Faro.
The whole area is really nice and clean. Restaurants are a bit more expensive than other parts of the Island, I presume because this area is targeted by many German tourists. There are luxurious hotels and restaurants. Streets and the beaches around are extremely clean.

“Pleasant evening spent here”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

You can walk from the lighthouse to the right along the promenade which has sponsored cows along it ( like the land bananas that were in Liverpool during the city of culture year) Along the promenade there are a number of restaurants which have a view of the sea, where you can sit and also have a drink.
In the early evening you can watch the surfers getting the waves.
Its a safe place to walk ( or appears to be ) and you can push a push chair or wheel chair along quite easily.

Reviewed September 25, 2012

There are plenty of places to eat and the shopping is excellent. The supermarket here is cheaper than anywhere else that we bought from.
