  • This is an old lighthouse with history, and places where you can read about it. There are also places where you can sit, I recommend going there as well for the sunset, which is beautiful.  more »
  • It's a lighthouse and it now has a new area to sit nearby and watch the world go by. I have always found lighthouses, their localities and design to be an interesting necessity but sadly the enjoyment...  more »
  • The Lighthouse is pretty normal and dates back to the 1920s but around the lighthouse were made of gardens with a nice variety of trees and shrubs, a route with four sights and seating to enjoy the environment. A walk to do.

  • . A lighthouse with cats and migrating mayors. A pretty little Mediterranean garden, with drought-resistant plants, has been created around the old lighthouse up above the marina. You can get to it by walking all the way along the Paseo Marítimo past the rubble remains of the hotel they were forced to knock down , turning right up a steepish wide path right where the Paseo peters out and you are at the beginning of the fishermen's work huts. Alternatively, you can get here from the marina itself: just walk towards the lighthouse and then up the path by its side on the left. It's quite sweet as gardens go, and there are good views down over both the fishing port and the Lonja - the big building where they land the fish and then auction it off - and the marina where there are some medium-swish boats. Nothing Puerto Banus size, though! In my view, the best bit is the educational part, the information panels that they have put. There are some really good explanations of various geographical and biological points, bird life, etc. And, of course, if you are a native English speaker, there's the good laugh to be had at their TERRIBLE mis-translations! They talk about the mayors migrating across the Straits of Gibraltar. . . :-) And the cats? There are twenty or thirty of them, all sizes and all colours, living around and in the garden. They run away when they hear you approaching, but if you are quiet, you should be able to spot quite a few. Then when you've finished cat-spotting and reading the funny English, go back down, along the row of fishermen's work huts and to La Escollera for the best fish lunch you'll ever get. Enjoy! .
  • It is not visited that I know and they have closed access.

  • The current Lighthouse remains the octagonal stone tower, the building has been renovated and expanded. The signal is automatic and a new team of computer remote control installed.
