Reached by leaving the marina. Quieter part of the resort, but being very developed with lots of apartment developments on different scales, but a nice stroll for as long as you want to walk.

Situated on the promenade from Marina Rubicon to Papagoya beach it stands out on the cliff top, but in reality that is all it does. Nothing vaguely attractive about it, best viewed from a distance.

I mean it's great they've chosen to preserve the building and it looks great from a distance as part of the coast....but beyond that is it really worth being treated like a site that requires the ugliest eye sore toilets ever conceived to be erected?...More

It was a great walk but as with loads of places in Lanzarote it was windy. Its close to the Marina and if you are looking for a walk across the hills its great, good views

Interesting old fort, described in Spanish and English on an adjacent noticeboard (but you can't go inside). Also good for views towards the Papagayo beaches and Playa Blanca

We were staying at the Rubicon Palace so quite a walk, but an easy one. Take your time, stop for coffee, take in the sea views and enjoy. Good views at the Castillo over Playa Blanca

Just a tower and no internal access. Nearby info board gives the history in Spanish and English. Midway between Marina Rubicon and Sandos Papagayo Beach Resort
