Guia Lighthouse, Macau

(140+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse Tourist Spot
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.

  • We came here without knowing the opening hours.. so I added on google. It's a nice place for workout and hike (since there are many uphills). Can't see much at night but could imagine the night view from the night house at night would be really nice (unfortunately they closes at 6pm)
  • Panoramic view of the city. Simply superb
  • It's nice and beautiful, but it needs improve their transportation...
  • The location is magnificent and the scenery is beautiful also its free!
  • A good place to visit. Other than the lighthouse, there is a church you can pay a visit inside and other military setup like air-raid basement and canon. You can have a high level view of Macau there. If you don't want walk down from the hill top, you can take the cable car.
