Is empty, if you get there you feel like you ought to have a drink or something to eat. Waste of money, too expensive. Get a taxi to the sea side instead

The light-house is an emblem - and also a perfect place to take a photo - as you have a beautiful view of the ocean on all sides.

A pleasant place for a leisurely stroll. Some nice upmarket shops to browse. A row of cafes bars and restaurants to choose from. Something for everyone. Ideal to choose a good seat to sit and and enjoy a cold drink and just watch the world go by.

Although we stayed in Playa de Ingles me and my boyfriend got a lot of taxis to Maspalomas to walk down the promenade both at night and through the day. Absolutely lovely area with some high class restaurants (well priced though) and posh shops.

The area where the Faro is located is extremely commercial and touristy..... not a big deal if you miss this site
