Cape Irago, Tahara

(4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
Considered one of the top 50 lighthouses in the country, the snow-white beacon at Cape Irago stands vigil on a dramatic point, looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1926, the lighthouse's stark white architecture contrasts with the deep blue of the sea, giving way to great views of land across the water. From here, explore either the sheltered sandy beaches on the north side of the peninsula, known for their good swimming, or the wilder Pacific south side, furnished with dunes and attracting surfers. Look out for the "lover's sanctuary," a spot overlooking the sea where lovers write notes on padlocks and seal them to bring their relationships good fortune. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cape Irago by using our Tahara vacation planner.

  • Italian good Lake Cape Lighthouse is a bit behind. I think best spots than to climb a hill and go back to the little lighthouse and take a photo.
