On a walk from our hotel to Marina Rubicon we passed this tourist attraction. There is not a lot to see and the structure itself is not large. However, there are some spectacular views and pictures to be taken. Wouldn't go out if my way to visit here but ok to see in passing.

We had a walk around this area after we had been to the market at Playa Blanca (which I would recommend visiting too). Although it was very windy it is worth it as the views across to Fuertaventura are stunning.

This old fortress stands on a promontory above the town of Playa Blanca and a stroll uphill from the harbour will take you there in about 10 minutes. It's a lovely walk and the view across the sea to Fuertaventura is fabulous. There are steep cliffs adjacent to the building so you would have to be extra vigilant with young... More

Nothing amazing but interesting to look at on walk to beaches. There were toilets on the site but they were closed on each of the 3 times we walked by both in the morning and evening.

A nice place to visit if you're going strolling along from the Marina Rubicon to Papagayo Beach. It's a round tower built on the edge of a cliff basically. There is an information poster giving one all it's historical detail. 15 minutes at most is what is required here

Found this interesting landmark by accident on our way to the marina. Shame we couldn't go inside but you can climb the stairs and cross the tiny ( but very efficient ) draw bridge. Great se views to Fuerta

Castillo de las Coloradas is a 5 minute walk from Hotel Volcan Lanzarote it is a super landmark, I walked up the stairs to the doorway where there is a locked gate and inside all I could see was an empty stone circular room. Lovely just being abroad seeing all the landmarks and sights of the area in the sunshine.
