Faro de Punta la Entallada

Punta la Entallada Lighthouse (Highway FV-511, Las Playitas, Tuineje) – this Moorish style lighthouse, located on the east coast of the island (facing North Africa), was built in 1955 (despite its rustic look). Located on the outskirts of a village named Las Playitas, eco-tourists pass through here on their way to nearby eco-destinations like “Cuchillos de Vigán” (a protected natural reserve and mountainous area known for its flora & fauna). Wildlife spotted here include Egyptian vultures, Barbary Falcons and Ospreys.
