  • This small museum is well presented and tells the story of the lives of the fishermen of yesterday. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Interesting museum related to fishing that only costs 3 euro per person. There is a cafe that is reasonably priced. There are toilet facilities, but you need to ask for the key. A good walking trail t...  more »
  • Beautiful preserved site, the lighthouse and Museum are lost in a small setting of greenery, rock, stones with the ocean in the background and its turquoise waters north of the island to El Cotillo common to La Oliva. Small parking lot nearby not of particular difficulty. Photographers will take pictures. This site is worth a visit.

  • Lovely surroundings, easily accessible via tarmac road (not always the case on this island) If you just want to go up this lighthouse it is cheaper than the whole museum. We didn't visit the museum itself as it looks like the history of fishing on the island)
  • We were here for the sunset, it was very romantic. Place is definitely worth visiting.
  • The museum is really worth visiting and very interesting. But, as most of the museums on Fuerteventura, it has its problems (therefore the island government started to privatize the first museums 2016). - If you do not speak Spanish, you see nice things but have no idea what is going around. Everything only in Spanish – what a stupid idea on an island with 80% UK and German Tourists! - Video presentations are very interesting if working. Most times they work not and, of course, just in Spanish. - Very unmotivated girl running the museum. But, if you talk Spanish to her she gets nice and friendly. - Most times the door to the white tower, that was the first lighthouse, is closed. If so, ask the girl to open it, because you can go up there to enjoy a fabulous view to Lanzarote, El Cotillo and the lagoons. Resume: Great museum, badly run but at least very fair. The entrance is anyhow inexpensive but if the video stuff is not working you get e rabat of 1,- Euro. Nice and honest.
  • The museum was closed when we were there at sunset. The area is covered with little stone towers, it looks really impressive.
  • Closed on Mondays but the location is still great especially on a windy day.
