  • Once you have seen the fishing net, the crab pot parts, the wooden model boat you have seen the best bits. Not sure what we expected but it definitely was not this. Nice walk to the lighthouse from El...  more »
  • Lovely place and uncontaminated. There is a walking path that allows you to see the fossils on rocks by the sea. Traditional Lighthouse bar

  • Good Museum. It is worth to visit. The sea and the waves are very impressive. The Museum is well sorted and very informative. A recommendation for a visit if you are in the North.

  • 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 was closed when we were there at sunset. The area is covered with little stone towers, it looks really impressive.
  • 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.
  • Very suggestive place, really worth the visit
