  • 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.

  • Farest Argentine lighthouse, it's a really nice trip from Ushuaia that takes around 4 hours in a regular tour (El Che Tour, highly recommended, only 8-10 people per tour at 1350 ARS). It is important to mention that this is not the most southern lighthouse, because there is the one at Cape Horn. In the other hand the Julio Verne book refers to the one at the beginning of the channel localized in Isla de los Estados.
  • You can see it from the boat, cannot step on land.
  • 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...
  • 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.
