Faro de Jandia, Morro del Jable

4.1
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Fuerteventura
Found at the end of a landscape of white beaches, the lighthouse Faro de Jandia contains a small museum. Keep your eyes on the water if you’d like to spot a whale--beaked, sperm, and other varieties of these great marine mammals live together here. Note that the gravel road to the site presents difficulties without the proper vehicle. You’ll have to drive slowly either way.

    Typical place of the area, do not expect to find an upscale restaurant, but you better find a spectacular fish, the rest of the same food, product fresh., stock call and pre-booked.

    I visited this remote place in the evening. It is impressive to watch the sunset, as the sun sets in the Atlantic. Have a picnic at the last minute of the day is priceless

    In General, when it comes to getting there, it's a normal car is sufficient (you do not need to have a 4 x 4-as others write in their comments). Normal gravel road, a winding, older or younger-each handle, going quietly all access. The ideal way for rallies, if someone likes a ride is the perfect place, we were treating it like a special stage. Nice place, for this road is worth to go there;)

  • Must see location in the island. Not the most spheric but definitely gorgeous. Driving there was epic as it's mostly twisty gravel roads (i recommend renting a jeep for this - make sure the rental allows off-road - or doing the Buggy Mix Experience tour on quads and buggies - tell them i sent you).
  • Very nice place. It's really worth to stay and watch the sunset.
  • Prachtig!! Must-See!! U have to see the ocean here. There's something spectacular about it. I will not reveal the "secret"....
  • Great location for enjoying a beautiful sunset. The last 20-25min drive towards the lighthouse is on gravel roads so consider getting a cover for the tires in case you're having a tiny rental car.
  • It's a nice little lighthouse in the south of the island. There isn't too much to see there except for a small museum and a few interesting cliffs right next to the place. It is mildly different than the rest of the island so that's kind of interesting to see. This might be due to the long journey requited to get there which might take as much as an hour there and another hour back. I recommend packiging the trip with a trip to another place located west of Morro Jable. I believe I was once able to see Gran Canaria from the lighthouse, which is nice.
