It's impossible to go to Maspalomas and miss the lighthouse. Nice area for a stroll around it and a pretty view of the ocean.

we really enjoyed this area. Lots of great bars and restaurants (Maximillians hanging chairs are my favourite!) and a lovely promenade to stroll along watching the sun go down before an evening meal or drinks. Very clean, very safe.

Lovely landmark to visit and a great feature of Maspalomas. Good guiding point too when you get lost on the sand dunes of the windy beach.
