5 euros entry fee to see this view, but is worth it. I will say to anyone who is afraid of heights this can be scary. still it is a stunning view of a small island just off Lanzarote.

Amazing views and you don’t need to pay the 5 euros entrance fee. Just go 20 metres down the road for free and the views are brilliant.

It’s a little bit of a drive to get here from most of the resorts, however it’s worth it for the views alone. You can also grab an inexpensive coffee or a sandwich and it has a nice gift shop with quality items - not...More
