The. Lighthouse is located on a former island, which is now connected to the Corsica mainland by a small causeway. There are some good views to be had from various vantage points on the light house island. The island is made of a pink type of granite.

Worth the walk out past the commercial port to climb up and get great views of the town, surrounding coast and countryside. Nice breeze when it's hot too.

The lighthouse isn't much but the views are fantastic. We took tourist train up as we had a 2 year old but I imagine the walk would be great.

Such beautiful water everywhere! This rocky hike is worth it, even on a hot day. Very nice views of the sea and the bay from there.

Had a wonderful walk out to the lighthouse in over thirty degrees Celsius and so the opportunity to swim in the delightful cove on the way back couldn't be passed up. Best to swim off the rocks as the cove is stoney and slippy but not even two jellyfish put us off the relief of the crystal clear waters.

This is a fabuous short - and at the end steepish - walk from the town. We walked up there in the late afternoon (passed by a little electric passenger tram, complete with French commentary) and were rewarded with spectacular views: back to the town and the bay, over to the Cap Corse, and out to the sparkling open sea....

Nice hiking trip with beautiful landscape. Orange rocks on blue water: really a good contrast for a photo.

It is a fairly steep walk up to the Light House but the day we went there was a lovely breeze and we enjoyed the stroll. The views from the top are worth the trek and it is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours

Nice gentle walk up a road that occasionally features a tourist train passing by... but walking allows you to take pictures from WV very vantage point / angle. Deep blue and green water. Each step seems like a post card slot in some direction. Worth the time to explore. Wear sneakers if you want to go off road and explore... More
