The old lighthouse opened in 1886; it was replaced by a more modern facility which stands next to it, 120 years later. Sit by the lighthouses among the rocks and feel the wild waves crash around you.

  • This is a decent walk from Playa Blanca central, and usually with a cooling breeze. Great views to Fuertoventura, and often a decent swell.  more »
  • Of your hotel is located at the lighthouse while walking, (minimum 30 min to 1 h) walking in the sandstone of the time you can admire the various coves and small beaches that feature the promenade of playa. Blanca to the lighthouse, overlooking Fuerteventura...

  • A real pity is the situation in which is located the lighthouse, as well as the entire environment of the same. Upon arrival, I dared not out of the car because he was afraid of.

  • This is one of my favourite places in the world, after a good walk along the coastal path you arrive at the lighthouse. The colour of the sea is breathtaking as it crashes on the rocks. A place not to be missed if your in the area.
  • A trip along the coast to the Faro de Pechiguera... Take a note of the following : Have cold water with you, Make sure your cap, hat is properly anchored on your head and that you wear appropriate clothing to protect you against sunburnt, Wear hiking boots if you want to venture down the rocks close to the water, The rocks are dangerously and very slippery and wearing flip-flops or inappropriate shoes may put you in danger. Stay away of the edge of the cliffs, the strong winds are very powerful and there is nothing to protect you but yourself
  • Staying nearby, we walked via the lighthouse on our way up the west coast collecting geocaches. There is not much to say about an automated lighthouse. If Graffiti floats your boat then there is plenty here to see and the overall views are good also. I wouldn’t necessarily go out of your way to come here as there isn’t much to see, but if you are in the area then it is worth a visit.
  • Historical place.. Tzz 1 Star dudes must consider there life... Its an old lighthouse outside town what do you expect people. We drove there by car. I would not walk the miles to visit it.
  • Not worth the walk there. The views are the same as somewhere else down the southern coast and lighthouse itself is in bad shape. Did take a nice photo though.
