El Faro and the Dunas de Maspalomenas
Dec 2020 • Family
Along a pleasant and quiet ocean promenade, the Lighthouse is a great spot to admire the ocean before walking on the magestic Dunes a few 400m away.

Masonry Masterpiece
Nov 2020 • Couples
A large phallic shaped building sitting at the edge of the beach.

It is a symbol of the very essence of Maspalomas. A building well suited to its environment. Standing proud above the dunes. The lighthouse acts as a symbol of the nearby meerkats popping up and down in the dunes.

Good day trip destination
Mar 2020
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 restaurants and shops.

El Faro Lighthouse
Feb 2020 • Solo
Pleasant walk along promenade which needs repairs to pavement, the area nearby has upmarket shops. The lighthouse is a major landmark and has a jetty people walk to the end of to get a view along the coast in both directions, there was an artist carving sand sculptures below on the beach.

Beautiful area
Feb 2020
We walked from our hotel to this area most days, its a hive of activity and a great place to watch the world go by. There are some lovely places to go eat if you wish and a few shops around, including a supermarket type shop.
Not the typical shops you'd expect though, it's mostly designer wear etc. and quite pricey too. There are lots of seating areas around and the sea wall is a favourite for many, certainly worth a visit.

Lovely area
Feb 2020 • Couples
Stayed at Palm Oasis in Sonnenland and was only a €5 cab ride away. Lovely clean area with some nice restaurants,shops and a few bars. Nice stroll of an evening with none of the hassle of time share touts or over powering waiters trying to entice you into their restaurant.

Focal point between maspalomas and meloneras
Feb 2020
Set between maspalomas and meloneras this light house gives a focal point. As daylight fails the light comes on, or can be seen, making it an attractive feature at sunset. There are restaurants nearby too.
