The lighthouse is quite boring, but the view is splendid, especially at sunset. The walk is easily manageable and is pleasant. A view not to be missed

The lighthouse gives you a good view of the sea and L'Ile Rousse. There's a tourist train that trundles up there, but the walk is easier than it looks. Make an effort and get some great photos!

Cool winds and great views from the top all the way up to Cape Corse. In the morning you'll meet dozens of runners - is perfect as no cars are allowed.

Walk this every day of our holidays.... Never tire of the views. Love it on a windy day especially. I think of this during the winter months at home and it always makes me smile. The blue sky and green and blue water are magnificent! Pop down to the little cove and have a swim or snorkel... It's worth it.

Great view and a good place to train uphill running. We took a swim in the turquoise waters below too. Recommended!

A superb beach, with easy parking.. clear blue water and white sand.. When you have had enough sun a walk to the light house is an easy stroll round the harbour.

We took the tourist train from the market place, which was good fun, up to the lighthouse for some fantastic views. It was a very nice experience.

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.
