Saw the lighthouse as part of Beagle Channel boat trip. The boat went around the island and stopped up close so tourists could take photos.

We took a local boat through the Beagle channel to see the lighthouse. It's a beautiful place and not what I had expected in this part of South America. There are many good photo opportunities to be taken here.
