On a clear day the 360 views from the top is worthwhile, and more than makes up the climb. It is quite beautiful!

We weren't brave or energetic enough to do the walk to the top, but the lighthouse was lively from the bottom we went in the bunker that is situated next to it at the bottom and had been renovated. Lovely piece of history

While the lighthouse was interesting and fun to climb, the WW2 German bunker was probably of more interest to me to be honest. A visible reminder of the Nazi's aspirations to capture and hold France for as long as possible!

Interesting setting towards the point of Cap Ferret. Some german bunkers still visible around...pine trees provide welcome shade on sunny days

our visit to Le Phare was very informative, we found out history of the Cap Ferret and 360' view was just amazing! Worth visit and enjoy the view over the whole Cap.

Great views of cap ferret. Good little museum showing maps and mapping. All in French so you will need to translate!

This is certainly a must-visit if you're in Cap Ferret on a day trip. Lots of great history to absorb, and spectacular views all around the top of the lighthouse. The admission should probably be less, but that's a minor complaint. It's still worth the...More

I'd say a must see great views of the bay sea and the sand dune at Pyla. We took some great family pictures there is also a ww2 bunker there which was an eye opener
