Situated just outside of Las Playitas this is probably my favourite lighthouse on the island. Build in the eary 1950´s it´s perched on the top of a fabulous cliff with spectuar views of the sea and the beautiful landscape of Fuerteventura. The road leading to it is narrow and at times a little too scary for my liking but it´s well worth it when you get to the top.
Aguas Verdes or green waters is located on the west coast of Fuerteventura on the road to Betancuria. Named after it´s green bottomed natural rock pools it´s one of my favourite places to go for a picnic. The views on the route to the coast are your typical Fuerteventura “moon mountains” and the odd goat but as you approach Aguas Verdes you start to see a scattering of houses. Read more “Aguas Verdes”
After 13 years of living here I decided that it was time to go and find the secret forest in Betancuria and have a barbecue! I´ve wanted to go for ages but have never actually made it for one reason or another. I wasn´t disappointed! If there´s one thing that I miss about the UK it´s the greenary- I was a lover of the Lakes and North Yorskhire and used to spend many weekends there hiking happily around the hills.
