It is cool to walk there in the morning and of course at night. There are amazing restaurants around and the view from there is really cool.

Old fashion shopping experience and not up to date. Need a real fix up. Suggest you go up to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria instead.

A short walk from hotels is this stunning lighthouse at the very southern tip of the island. Lots of shops to visit along with some very good eateries. Wide pathways to stroll along and take in the fantastic views.

Local landmark. Not much else to say. Can't go inside it - still a working building, but for the last couple of years they have been working on converting some of the base to apartments.

Every morning my wife and I enjoyed the walk along this promenade. It is clean, well built and offers nice sea views together with views of some amazing hotels and sea front restaurants.

Expected to find the internal rooms in action, not so, building work continues. Perhaps next year? Still a good meeting point if visiting the area.
