Cuesta del Faro translates as the slope of the lighthouse and this is an accurate description of this dive site. The lighthouse at Playa Blanca is at the western extremity of the island on a small peninsular. From the lighthouse the land slopes away into the water and this determines the structure of this dive site.

The usual anchor point is at a depth of around 10 to 12 metres. From here it is possible to descend down to around 30 metres at the edge of the reef wall. Along the way you are likely to see some of the volcanic spitballs that litter the sea floor here. Also look out for large Moray eels that can be found here and for the valleys and depressions that have formed in this rocky landscape. There is a now a small fishing wreck abandoned on the site.
