Right on the beach front, next to the Mime/Statues that the seagulls seems to like, and easy to stop for a drink and watch the world go by - most relaxing.

Lovely Spot on the Seafront, but would be nice to have some tourist information or history somewhere, instead you have a sign telling you to call a number for information.

There are some lovely sand sculptures in front of it & there are lovely views of the surfers on the beach.

A nice spot in Maspalomas. Ideal for an sunset view walk along the pier. There are a lot of parkings available nearby, so it's easy to commute to. The pier is long, the Faro itslef maybe not astonoshing, but nicely located and well kept. It's a rating more for the experience on spot, rather than the lighthouse itself.

Beach and restaurants to the left, promenade to the right which leads to more restaurants and shops. This whole area has class.

The faro can be seen from quite a distance and it is a useful landmark to take your directions from. Around the lighthouse itself are a number of upmarket shopping areas and many restaurants. It is a good meeting place.
