The Corbière Lighthouse stands as an iconic beacon of maritime safety and historical significance. First lit in 1874, this striking white lighthouse, perched on a rocky outcrop, offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the most photographed landmarks on the island.

Access to the lighthouse is via a tidal causeway, which is submerged during high tide but revealed when the tide recedes. Visitors can walk along this causeway, exploring the rugged coastline and taking in the dramatic sea views. The experience of crossing the causeway adds a sense of adventure and connection to the natural rhythms of the ocean.

Timing your visit with the tide schedules is crucial, as the causeway is only accessible during low tide. Information boards near the causeway provide tide times and safety advice, ensuring visitors can plan their trip safely. Walking to the lighthouse, you’ll encounter rock pools teeming with marine life and have ample opportunities for photography.

Once at the lighthouse, visitors can learn about its history and significance through informative displays. Though the lighthouse itself is not always open to the public, the surrounding area provides stunning panoramic views, especially at sunset, making it a memorable destination for nature lovers and history enthusiasts alike.
