Mirador Del Rio, Lanzarote

Designed by an artist, Mirador Del Rio is a viewpoint perched 475 m (1,558 ft) on the Batería del Río. Once a lookout for ships landing clandestinely on the shore, this location was used to represent an alien planet in the BBC's "Doctor Who.” At the cafe lookout, you can view the island of La Graciosa. The gift shop located next to the cafe is built into the volcanic rock that makes up the small mountain.

  • Worth a trip to the north of the island for this view point. Entrance to the observatory is €5 per adult which you can avoid as it is more or less the entry fee to the cafe!  more »

  • Such an amazing drive along the north side of this beautiful and unique island. Just after visit of the nearest caves, follow the north road.Lanzarote may not have forest and green lands, but definitely something incredible experience to visit this island. All the Vulcanos and other interesting parks, like the famous cactus park and aqua parks. Also recommended to take the ferry and visit the local islands. Good weather all year round.
  • Fantastic views... Good shop.... Good food... Lovely coffee.... The view from the coffee shop was amazing. Well worth the visit... Lots of parking.
