Guia Lighthouse, Macau

(4.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Witness a monumental piece of Macau's colonial history at Guia Lighthouse. The first colonial-style lighthouse on the Chinese coast, this 19th-century structure is 15 m (49 ft) tall and stands on the highest point of the eponymous hill. Though visitors cannot enter the lighthouse itself, a nearby museum narrates the history of the structure and features a small chapel next door. Enjoy the captivating views of the Macau skyline while taking yourself back to simpler times, when this lighthouse served an integral role in navigation and warned the city's residents of incoming typhoons. Guia Lighthouse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Macau Edition.

  • If you have the time I would definitely recommend visiting Guia Hill and making the trek up to the Lighthouse. Fantastic views and steeped in history!  more »
  • It can be a hike up to the top but it is worth it for the view alone. It is one of the few historical things left to see. It is a 10 minute walk up from the ruined church and the walk is shady and all...  more »
  • I went to 10/2016. It is a vantage point overlooking the Macau S.A.R. city just off in Macau S.A.R. 30 world heritage sites, is not easy to access, good spot. It seems to be a park locals run or exercise, and readily available.

  • Lovely way to get an almost 360 degree view of Macau. Spattered with rich history and carefully manicured gardens this place is a must see - be you a local or visitor
  • One of the must visits in Macau. It's a little hike going to here, but at the top you'll have an awesome view of the city and read up some history of Macau and the lighthouse. You'll snap some pretty pictures here.
  • Nice place!when im in hongkong i visit this place,its beautiful!!!
  • One of my favourite, if not my absolute favourite place in Macau. The lighthouse is BEAUTIFUL and overlooks some of the residential areas of Macau, as well as the flower gardens. Accessible by walk or by cable car.
  • Hidden attraction in Macau. Easy to go. Good view from above!
