Lovely place for a spot of beach casting. Plenty of places to fish. Rocks, sand, the pier. Just be careful on the rocks. I was nearly washed in by a rogue wave

The lighthouse was having a makeover. So unfortunately not open. But i much prefer this area of the island to player de ingels/maspalomas itself.
