Guia Lighthouse, Macau
(4.4/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • 東望洋燈塔位於澳門島上最高位置,觀賞澳門比旅遊塔還好,絕對是一覽無遣,東望洋燈塔雖然是澳門地標,但又沒有大三巴旅遊區的人山人海,感覺是清靜,心曠神怡,值得一去。 
  • The cable car ride was inexpensive and took you halfway up. You then continued your walk passed sport complexes and gardens to the lighthouse. Good views of the city.

  • macau skylink, very beautful view.
  • Very nice view from above. Use cable car to go up. Cable car can be taken from flora garden.
  • 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!
  • Nice hike up to the lighthouse. With very good views of the city. If you can't get tickets to the tower then this would be a great alternative.
