A pleasant little walk.

You cannot drive to this lighthouse so need to park just before its private road. If every one took their car up it would be chaos! Anyway it is a nice walk along the smooth path... read more

Our visit was during a very windy day, so it was quite a lot of fun trying to stand in front of the wind. The lighthouse has nice views, but thats about it. The building is nice, though. On the way you can see a small beach that you can try to walk your (dangerous) way down to, but maybe... More

this modest Light House is a great destination for a morning or afternoon jog from Ile Rousse with great views of the village and harbor.

Take the little "train" from the city and go up to the light-house. There you have a wonderful 360 degree view. The guide is so funny and he knows everything about Ile Rousse and more.

A small walk from town, this is the perfect spot for a picnic or a evening walk to check out the sunset.

The walk up to the Ille Rousse lighthouse is easy but gives a wonderful view of the stunning Corsican coastline and the mountains inland. A definite must.

We stayed at the Pietra hotel very near of the lighthouse. We walked just before we went out for diner in the hotel (recommended!!!) the walk is easy, the views are ok, but nothing really out of the ordinairy. Go there durong sunset, would be the best time. Lighthouse itself is not worth mentioning.
