Tostón Lighthouse


El Cotillo

The Toston Lighthouse is located in Punta Ballena, a bump of land surrounded by rough waters just 5 kilometers north of El Cotillo.

It is called a lighthouse but it is actually a complex of three lighthouses. The lighthouse in the center, the oldest, is 6 meters high and dates back to 1897, the year in which it became operational for the first time.

Another lighthouse was built in 1960 and is 15 meters high and a third, 30 meters, was built in 1986. Together with the Martiño lighthouse in the islet of Los Lobos and that of Punta Pechiguera in Lanzarote they form a triangle to signal the passage of ships on the Bocaina strait which is the strait that separates the islands inside you can find the Museum of Traditional Fishing, an activity linked to the history of Fuerteventura and its inhabitants.

The small museum collects interesting objects, images and audio that tell the stories, customs and traditions of Majoreri fishermen.

One of the best places to watch the sunset in Fuerteventura!
