  • We took her routa 9 to get to the sign that says it's the end of the road... Then we left to go to the Faro San Isidro on the edge of the water, but it was windy and very cold. After 1 km we turned...

  • beautiful landscapes, you can see bottlenose dolphins while you're on the road... wear good shoes, the beach where walking is pure loose gravel, makes more complicated the walk, especially if you go with children or very elderly people. bring their own food and water because the hotel does not open all year round

  • It is as they say, little less than two hours of ida and two back. The landscape is beautiful. We were lucky to see dolphins and whales, so more than well. The only problem is that the journey is along the coast, rocks and what arena something heavy again it. You should go with good shoes because normal sneakers will destroy there. With a little investment and signage would be perfect.

  • Disclaimer: we didn't make it all the way to the lighthouse , so the description is for the drive from Punta Arenas down to the area. The drive down from Punta Arenas towards the lighthouse is beautiful. Mostly on the coastline which is a beach and with snowy mountains in the background There is also gravel road which is beautiful and winding. There are horses, cows and sheep farms. Highly recommended to take this road for a day trip. We went more than 3/4th of the way but had to return during daylight so returned. Apparently there is a gentle walk at the end of the road to reach the lighthouse.
  • Amazing landscape, bring your own water and food at this time... They say that is 5km, but because you have to walk through the beach, it take us almost an hour and a half to arrive
  • Quick caution: the road ends about 5km before the lighthouse, so you have to park and continue on foot if you want to reach it. There is a trail in some parts, most of it is walking the beach. It's a cool place. Deserted when I went there. Also, you cannot go in the lighthouse as it is all locked up. Honestly it was rather eerie. Great views once you get up there.
  • Wonderful place and beautiful view on the way! But you have to pay attention, because the weather can change very quickly and the way back could be a lot more difficult and wet...
