The road to the lighthouse has big potholes and is very narrow in places with high drop offs into the sea. One sees the rugged volcanic coast but go on beyond the lighthouse up the old road that is no worse than the initial stretch...More

A lovely place very similar to the Lizard in Cornwall, UK. Beautiful crystal clear waters if you can make it down to the beach.

It's a bit of a drive off the beaten track but well worth the journey, some of the roads are badly pot hold. Great scenery.

Drive around coast through some fairly poor areas. The salt lagoons and bird reserve hides worth a visit if interested in bird life.

The lighthouse offers great views and photo opportunities. The road up to the lighthouse is very good and a walk down the left hand side from the lighthouse brings you to a great diving spot.

First of all, a full view of the lighthouse opens from the road. It only takes a few minutes while driving along the serpentine. It's impossible to stop there, on serpentine, so need to be attentive not to miss the moment when the scene of...More

The cape offers beautiful views but offers no public services: no bar, no toilet, no garbage cans. This place could be managed in a better way.

Scenic drive from Carboneras but worth it. Road good right up to the lighthouse. Good views. Stop on the way back and see the Flamingos on the lakes

After a lengthy drive through some barren landscape we arrived, along with lots of other tourists at this Faro or Lighthouse feature. The lighthouse itself is nothing to write home about, however the views are quite stunning. Be careful if you have small or young...More
