  • Many times I have visited Margarita and did not know this lighthouse, is not an antique, in fact its construction dates from 2007, but is an ideal place to appreciate the beautiful view of punta whales, they are 143 steps up to the top of the lighthouse and landscape is worthwhile.

  • the Guard lets you walk, you let your car to 20 meters, they let you turn around when you go back, you can take photos, the landscape is beautiful, the immensity of the deep blue sea, the wind is and the salty breeze makes mischief, also you can see a few salt mines of the area the road is normal,
