  • The lighthouse was high and great, but that was it:-) Definitely a landmark as thrones on the long distance. But very nice promenade along the Lake towards the Meloneras.

  • I went here the 1st night I arrived to watch the sunset and it's absolutely amazing...after that a couple more times because it's never enough the view you see there. Romantic place.
  • If you are up for a romantic walk at the beach, this is the best place. Watching the sunset and waves splashing on the shore coupled with occasionally sea breeze is the most romantic thing you could achieve here! I had an amazing shot of the sunset!
  • A place to see have a photo but not much else im afraid. Cant go in or up. Just added it in on a walk along the sea front
  • Old style lighthouse at the end of the Boulevard El Faro, it is worth strolling down after a meal. It is a popular place to see the sunset. Pretty cool.
  • It's a light hours not much to say about it really. The guy who does the sand sculptures at the foot of the lighthouse is pretty good.
