Mirador del Faro de la Sardina has been renovated with an investment of 82,962.44 euros, and will now be an added feature on the route of tourist attractions in Gran Canaria.  

The landscape regeneration work at the Faro de la Sardina viewpoint in Gáldar has transformed the area of the lighthouse into an attractive space, where visitors can come to admire the landscape of the north coast of Gran Canaria and the sunsets with the island of Tenerife in the background.

This work is part of a Cabildo plan that is transforming the island and that is already visible in some of the north and east parts of the island.

This viewpoint is located close to other interesting places to visit in Gran Canaria, like the Special Conservation Area 'Costa de Sardina del Norte', which has been part of the Natura 2000 Network in the Canary Islands since 2010. An emblematic place, which houses numerous submerged sea caves of great interest, a coastline formed by large basalt elements, intertidal sea beds and a multitude of small natural pools, where some of the largest waves on the Gran Canaria coast are happening.

The new viewpoint at Faro de la Sardina offers a panoramic view over the sea. The project is part of a larger project in Gran Canaria, which is focused on establishing landscape observatories in places of great natural relevance, in order to help visitors discover the real beauty of the territory of the northern coast.
