It is infallible a photo in the lighthouse; During the summer the place is very busy and in its surroundings are installed craft stalls. it is a good place to observe the immensity of the sea, the unfortunate are the scratches that it usually has and the inclination that is observed in a sector, there must be greater concern to preserve it.
We walked for 1 hour in the evening by the beach to reach Faro and it was a pleasant family walk. Lighthouse is super cute, looks like a toy. There are some works around it going on now and the beach behind as well as area around is not so clean, but cool place to see.
Great place to start the Beach walk along La Serena. Start with ice cream here, but eat it quickly as it melts fast on a sunny day!! Parking can usually be found down at this end!!
