Faro is Spanish for Lighthouse and as its name implies that is just where Faro Park is. Adjacent to the lighthouse and on the southern most tip of Playa Blanca. Although a 7 minute drive, or 1hour 20 minutes walk out of Playa Blanca, Faro Park has its own charm.
The villas are located either side of a quiet road, and in well kept mature gardens, the surrounding area is one of natural beauty.
Faro Park is served by the local regular, reliable bus route, and for a euro or so, you can reach the village or venture further around the island. A taxi ride would cost around 5 euros to reach the village. Some holidaymakers drive out, park in the village and then get a taxi back after sampling the local vino! A head-clearing walk the next morning along the beachfront promenade to collect the car is a relaxing start to the day!
As there is an array of shops, bars and restaurants actually in Faro Park, you don’t have to venture out until you want to.
Within walking distance from any of the Faro Park Villas, you will find a commercial promenade.
There is a wide selection of places to eat and drink in, or take away. These include a cocktail/wine bar, a Spanish restaurant/bar, a Italian restaurant, and an English owned café where the baker cooks overnight a mouth-watering array of delights to sell the next morning.
There are 2 supermarkets, the bigger one of the two stocks nearly all that you need, apart from fresh meat and fish, although both are available frozen. As there is quite a community of English residents/villa owners in Faro Park, the shop sells some English produce too. No need to miss out on your English breakfasts though, either buy your ingredients there, or let one of the restaurants cook a full English Breakfast up for around 3.50e.
One of the beauties of Faro Park is the proximity to the sea, with the super promenade meandering along the sea front, all the way along to the new Marina. Although it would take some time to walk it, why not hire a bike and admire the view along the coastal path. There are lots of lovely places to stop and take shade from the sun whilst you gather your thoughts and refresh your senses.
Many of the Faro Park villas have incredible sea views, across to Bocaina straights to Fuerteventura. Regularly you will see ferries, cargo ships, fishing boats and occasionally cruise ships going by.
It’s a fantastic place to base your holiday, and although the rock pools and southern tip of the island waves are fantastic to watch, especially when the sun sets, it is strongly recommended not to venture on to the rocks or attempt to swim. The lighthouse is interesting to look at and again a perfect venue to watch the sunset. Do not be tempted to venture into the sea. The tide and waves can be dangerous.
Only a short drive away is some of the wonders of Lanzarote, The Timanfya Mountains, and Papagayo Beaches. The villages of Femes, El Golfo and Las Brenas, all with their own delights.
