A friendly warning regarding the wind here, which is the most powerful we've encountered in Fuerteventura. Here at Mirador Sicasumbre you will fully understand why the island is called Fuerteventura.

At the top you have amazing views over the desert that Fuerteventura is inland and also beautiful views of the ocean. If you have the chance to arrive at around sunset time you will have the most magical light, thanks to the Golden Hour that most photographers love so much.

This place is not on the usual tourist route, so it's likely you will have the place all to yourself. However, the view from up there is incredible, probably the best view of the inland in Fuerteventura.

Depending on where you are coming from, starting at the mirador you could drive towards La Pared Beach or Ajuy (in the opposite direction) and take a moment to admire the sunset on the west coast of the island.
