The Punta Martiño Lighthouse on Lobos Island

A trio of lighthouses

We have just arrived at the only official construction built on Lobos Island: together with the Tostón Lighthouse (in El Cotillo), and the Pechiguera Lighthouse (on the island of Lanzarote), this lighthouse forms a trio of watchtowers which indicate the maritime route that ships must cross to avoid both islands. This is known as the "Estrecho de Bocaina" (or the Bocaina strait), and for centuries this has been one of the usual commercial routes for traders coming from practically everywhere. Due to its complicated orography, it took more than five years to construct and was inaugurated during 1905. Its six-metre neoclassical tower stands at 29 metres above sea level. With regard to Lobos Island, it represents one of the most attractive panoramic views that you can find of Fuerteventura itself: this lighthouse makes one of the key points on the island for this reason alone.
