great views from here, very historic building for Lanzarote but you cannot get inside it which is a pity.

The tower although not open to public is very interesting and would have been a focal point of protection back in 1700's to the island, it has stunning views of the sea and landscape and marina, worth a drop off on the walk to marina.

We spent some time here searching for little shells. Nothing much here but is worth a little walk out to view and look over the marina

Visited the marina most days and if you walk a bit further you will see this lovely place to sit and look out over the marina and the sea. You can't go in but good photo opportunity.

The Castillo de las Coloradas is in a spectacular location and it's significance as a military building is evident. It has a twin in Furtureventura. It is located on the coastal path just outside Playa Blanca.

This is an interesting castle to walk to. Just beyond marina in a cliff. You cannot enter but just look in and walk round. Combine this with a walk round marina.

This place is with a quick look, the views are amazing and it's worth it to get a picture and a walk around. You can't go inside but can go up the steps and look through the iron gate inside. You won't be there long,...More

Nice view from the location and an interesting bit of history to read. Worth stopping although you wouldn't need to stop for long.

I am not an historian but I think it was used as a refuge from the pirates that attacked the island. The watchtower’s bell was rang to warn when pirates approached.This is also the spot where Jean de Bethencourt setup base... More
