This iconic, towering lighthouse has played a vital role in protecting local sailors for more than 100 years.

View the imposing Maspalomas Lighthouse and learn of the many ships and fishing boats it has saved from dashing onto the sharp volcanic reefs of the Canary Islands. Swim off Maspalomas Beach in the shadow of the lighthouse or explore the rock pools at low tide in front of the lighthouse.

Construction began on the Maspalomas Lighthouse in 1886. Four years later, it shone its light for the first time. It stands at a height of 213 feet (65 meters), making it one of the tallest lighthouses in the Canary Islands.

Study the dark brickwork that has survived brutal Atlantic Ocean storms on countless occasions. Look closely to see the small portals that run up the side of the lighthouse to the light room at the very top. It is not currently possible to enter the lighthouse.

Photograph a superb view of the lighthouse from the sandy beach nearby. Swim in the refreshing sea or search for crabs and shrimp in the rock pools on either side of the base of the lighthouse.

Stroll from the lighthouse along the beach to find an array of bars and cafés just a few minutes away. Even at the end of the beach the tall, gray shape of the lighthouse remains clearly visible. Notice how it dwarfs all surrounding buildings while you enjoy a cold drink or an ice cream by the water. Be sure to come here to dine in the evening, when you can watch the bright beacon shining over the sea into the dark night.

Maspalomas Lighthouse is positioned on the water’s edge behind the town beach. It is a short walk from most hotels and resorts in Maspalomas.
