“Great view and fun town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We loved visiting the Lighthouse. The town was quaint and the people very friendly. The view from the top was so nice you could see the whole village. It wasn't very big but the town seems quite proud of their lighthouse.

“Fantastic view and quaint village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Yes, the lighthouse has LOTS of stairs, but the view is spectacular! The walk to the lighthouse is through a simple Brazilian village which is virtually unspoiled. The young "tour guides" met us at the boat dock and were ready to recite a poem or song or some tidbit about the lighthouse (for a tip, of course). Simply charming!

“Great view, and the guide was worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

It was really worth visiting the Lighthouse and going up the stairs for a fantastic view towards Cabure. Local children offered us to be a 'guide', offering us information about the village. We accepted this and the boy really had an interesting story to tell. In addition he recited a poem for us and sang a song. Very cute. It's up to you how much you want to tip them.
