  • Beautiful view of the Arcachon Basin and the Pyla dune. About 250 steps to climb to admire the landscape. The steps are small and easy to climb, thanks to a ramp. The climb is followed by a small exhibition on the sea charts and lighthouse. There is also a small shop at the foot of the lighthouse.

  • Exceptional view of the basin. The scenery is breathtaking. The effort of climbing the stairs is worth it. An interesting and informative exhibition on the history of the lighthouse. To do without hesitation!

  • The entrance fee of 6€ p.P is fine. A small museum tells a little about the history of the cap and after climbing the 153 steps, you really get a magnificent view over the Bassin d'Arcachon, the Cap, the ocean and the dune of Pyla. There is only a limited number of visitors to the lighthouse at a time, so waiting times must be expected at the entrance.

  • Beautiful location, really pretty car park even. How do the French do this...everything is so well considered. We didn’t go inside but walked around at the end of September and it was just the right level of business for us. Such a lovely gift shop, we bought a print which we love.
  • From 1945. 258 steps to get to the top. ~60m high so the 360 view on top is nice but nothing to craze about. I'm happy I did it with and for my 4-yr-old, but would not necessarily do it again. I'm happy I paid to help keep it open for visitors. It's not very often you can visit a lighthouse. Note: as others have noted there is indeed an elevator, but I think it's only for service ppl. I don't see how a wheelchair would be able to get on the outside 360 balcony, it's so tight up there.
  • Such a beautiful lighthouse with spectacular views over Cap Ferret and across the bay! Also, be sure to visit the German Blockhouse discovered on the grounds - Very interesting to see how they were constructed and used.
  • Must Visit: The Phare du Cap Ferret offers some great views over the basin and the Atlantic
  • 250 stairs. It has an elevator for people in wheelchairs. One of the best places to get the most beautiful views of Cap Ferret, the bird island, the ocean and of course the dunes of pilat. This lighthouse is not in use anymore. It belongs to the historicals french monuments
