  • A really nice spot. You can have a nice walk and a good view of the ocean. Lots of places to get a drink too.  more »
  • We took bus 30 from Las Palmas to see the Dunes of Maspalomas and simplest place to get off was El Faro de Maspalomas. Nice area with decent cafes near the taxi station and further away more...  more »

  • Very nice area to visit as a tourist. Interesting history & some great pictures to be taken. Well worth a visit here & the more up market area surrounding the lighthouse.
  • I've been to the Lighthouse as I was strolling along the Maspalomas beach and it's a good place to snap some photos. It's a small pier and it can get crowded easily, but all in all not much to see from here. If you are in the area you can definitely pass by and get a photo with this landmark, but it's nothing too special. However, there are plenty of other spots which, if bundled together, make for a good day out. All in all there's not much you can say about a lighthouse, but you can get nice food and views all around.
