  • Very good care and when the guides explain features that make navigation of the site, one understands the magnitude of his justified creation.

  • Not the lighthouse at the end of the world, but almost. Beautiful spot, away from it all, beautiful lights, sea wolves, birds etc.

  • Lighthouse located at the East entrance of the Beagle Channel but is not the real lighthouse at the end of the world. Built of brick on a small island with a height of 11 meters and a circumference of 3 meters, it is automatic and powered by solar panels.

  • Furthest light house in the Southern hemisphere in the Beagle Channel. Well, it is what it is, a light house! as part of our boat tour of the channel it was interesting.
  • In the middle of eagle channel which we passed by the boat. There were birds in this little island but all migrated out to another place because a disease rampant last year. This is probably the southernmost light house on earth. Although it has ceased to operate, the light house represent an era of the importance of Argentina. A historic relic it is...
  • Bellisimo
  • The end of the world is a bit nippy
  • Nice trip.
