(Spanish: Faro de Morro Jable) is an active lighthouse on the Canary island of Fuerteventura. The lighthouse is situated at the edge of the beach near the town and resort of Morro Jable.
Completed in 1991 this is the tallest lighthouse in the Canaries with a 59m tower, which is higher than that of the Maspalomas Lighthouse on Gran Canaria at 56m, and that of Pechiguera on Lanzarote at 50m. With a focal height of 62m above the sea, its light can be seen for 17 nautical miles, and consists of two flashes of white light every 10 seconds. It is sometimes confused with the older 19th century Punta Jandía lighthouse (Spanish: Faro de Punta Jandía) which lies 22 km away by road at the extreme western end of the Jandia peninsula.
