Lovely old lighthouse that is a focal part of the Canaries, lovely to see and great tourist attraction for visitors to see The walk along the coast is breath-taking and certainly worth a visit.

The old lighthouse of Faro. A clue for beach walkers between St. Augustin and Faro. Not more. Some bars in the vicinity

Lots of beautiful restaurants along by the lighthouse, most have entertainment on certain evenings and generally excellent cuisine. You definetely get what you pay for.

Among the rather grotty seafront places of Maspalomas, this stands out like a diamond in a dunghill.

The upmarket place! Lovely bars to sit and watch the world go by. Designer shops, musicians on the front. The indoor shopping centre not so nice , prices marked up a lot as we saw the exact same items in other parts of the island...More

I would not called this an attraction there is nothing there. Walked by it every day and it s a good reference point but that is all.

The beach front area by the light house is lovely to be in. There is plenty to do in the sea and on land. It is very well set up for us sightseers and people watchers.
