The lighthouse is at the southernmost point of Gran Canaria and as such it is a good landmark when you walk in the area. The building itself is not in anyway special. In Nov 2016 it was closed for visitors.

Lovely point on the coast to watch the sunset. Checked out sunset time on smartphone and made our way down there 20mins earlier. Lovely relaxed time with the waves lapping and sun setting.
