Punta de Sardina Lighthouse

The Punta de Sardina lighthouse is about as far as you can get to the North-West of Gran Canaria (Spain). I visited the place just to be able to say that I've been there. If that is your reason too for being interested in this place, by all means, do go. I doubt that I will ever return.
There is hardly any other reason for going there. There's the lighthouse, some sand and stone covered slopes, some cliffs on the waterfront and not much else. Have a look around in the image below and you will see that I'm right.
The cars there indicate that the locals come there to fish.



My 360º images in this post were all shot with the Ricoh Theta SC camera with low ISO priority.

You can zoom in and out and move around to look in any direction from where they were taken. You can also click on the link arrows to move to other connected images. You may have to move around a bit to see them.

How to get there
Take the GC-2 in the direction of Gáldar. Take Exit 25, just south of the town of Gáldar. At the first roundabout, drive straight thru and follow GC-202 to the first roundabout in Sardina. There is a Spar supermarket on the left side.  Then follow the map below.



If you're in the area and decide to go to the faro, I would make a stop on the way.
Follow the road Google Maps calls Carr. del Faro (=the road to the lighthouse) for about 11-1200m to an intersection. Walk up the slack slope to the SSW. From the top, you get a spectacular view over the west coast of Gran Canaria and the beach of the town Sardina. In my view is this the best reason for going in this direction at all.



When you return and come to the GC-202 roundabout with the Spar supermarket, make sure you take GC-202 to the right and continue on Av. Alcalde Antonio Rosas down to the Sardina beach. More about that in an upcoming post.
