Waves crashing on the rocks and dolphins leaping out at sea what a memorable place. Landscape is very arid and baron but interesting contrast to the build up areas in Playa Blanca.

The Lighthouse area is worth a visit and is approx 55 mins walk along the promenade from the centre of Playa Blanca, located in the Faro Park area.

Great views of Fuertaventura across the sea and along the coast towards Playa Familiar and eventually to Playa Blanca. The area near the lighthouse is a bit barren but flat and quite easy walking before reaching the path and promenade to Playa Familiar.
