A wonderful and well known landmark in the end of Maspalomas famous sand dunes and beach. Surrounded by a lot of cafeterias and restaurants in all kind of price levels. From exclusive first class restaurants to small, lean back atmosphere low price cafeterias and pubs. You find even a restaurant and pub with the rainbow flag here. From the lighthouse you can walk along the famous Maspalomas Beach and into the nice dunes and small dessert. Close to the beach and the lighthouse you find a group of the most luxurious hotels in South of Gran Canaria. If you can afford it, it must be an adventure to stay in there. Large gardens with flowers and palm trees.
Small but full of interesting things and items showing island life in the past. Good views from level above the museum displays, up a narrow spiral stair in the lighthouse tower. No access to the light at the top.
