It is located near the sea, near the castle of Jesus of Nazareth, on the seafront in Garrucha, a small and charming town. The lighthouse was built in 1880. The tower is 10 meters high, the focal plane is 13 meters and has a range of 15 nautical miles (+ - 25 km).

The Maritimo Promenade is one of the highlights of Garrucha. It has a length of nearly 2 kilometers and has numerous palm trees running along it and beautiful manicured gardens. Pay attention to its long marble railing and the Fisherman's Monument. The ports and Garucha beach are nearby. It is an ideal place to walk and relax on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The fishing port of Garrucha is located along the Malecon, and is the second largest fishing port in the province, after the port of Almeria. It boasts good restaurants serving typical seafood, especially Gamba Roja de Garrucha. There is an excellent fish market every day near the port which is well worth seeing.
