Walked up rather than going by tourist train. Excellent views of town and seascapes. No facilities at the top which is unexpected.

It's definitely worth the walk up to check out the views of the town and the surrounding area. Plenty of places for a drink or snack nearby on your way down.

Nice walk to lighthouse. Lowely red rocks. The best view on a town Lle Rousse, near mountains and beaches. It is a bit windy.

Whenever in Ile-Rousse, my days start with a run to the Light House. Good exercise rewarded with a breathtaking view at the top

Mostly interesting for its pink granite this is a place worth visiting en route to Calvi. There is a nice beach which is not crowded.
