  • Without a doubt, the lighthouse has many history, but particularly beautiful is the view of the beach from above. You can take spectacular photographs. Cabo polonio is a highly recommended place for those who love nature.

  • If you go in winter, be sure to go well sheltered. The wind is fuertazo! The view is very good. Not suitable for those with fear of heights!

  • 這個燈塔要收取25Peso入場費,基本上可以看到這裡所有景觀,而且燈塔對開石灘就是海獅的聚居處,十分不錯的地方。
