“Lovely area away from the crowds”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

A good selection of bars and restaurants to choose from all very welcoming.

The lighthouse is brill for breakfasts, le monks do wonderful brunch. Port of call and the itallian do great evening meals.

The entertainment in the snug is a nice way to finish of your evening, playing bingo every Saturday.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

There is a terribly uninspring walk or drive to the lighthouse and there's nothing much there when you get there. The sea looks nice and the view back to Playa Blanca is pleasant enough but it's not worth the trip. There's no infrastructure apart from some holiday clubs along the way and half-built long neglected villas nearby.

“Once only visit”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

A long walk from the central beach area, so only to be done once. The waves crash all around you and it's a bit of a wild spot, but the view across to Fuerteventura is great. To see the sunset is the best time to go there.

“Lovely view at west side of Playa Blanca”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This light house is at the very end of Playa Blance walking west. There is a walk way all along the sea front and it is well worth it. Wonderful sea views, sunsets in the evening and views across to Fuerteventura.

“sea views and breaking waves”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

might not be the most attractive looking place but climb over a few rocks and you have the most chilled out place. we loved sitting watching the waves breaking while the boys tried to catch crabs and fish, a place we returned to many times during our 2 week stay and cant wait to go back to x
