A very nice lighthouse. The lighthouse is kept in very good condition. You can only view the outside as the is no entry.

Start with a very slow walk around the port side of Punta del Este, head towards the sea front and around the peninusla.

We actually started at SOHO restaurant by the port, so we were very well fed before starting

Stop at the old Citroen? car parked on the front, and have a chat to Jose and buy some of his pastries- all hand made by his wife. Eat them quick though as they blow away with the wind.

Head up to the lighthouse for a viewpoint and a few photos- not open to the public.

Drop back down to the sea front, following it around, taking in the seaviews until finally heading back into the town for a hot chocolate and a walk around all of the shops

It took us 2 hours to do this walk, but we were walking like snails, going down onto the beach at every opportunity and stopping every 5 minutes. It would take about 25 mins i think.

Then we spent 2 hours walking in and out of every shop in town. We had a great afternoon doing nothing.

Take some bottled water as nowhere on the peninsula to buy anything apart from pastries

:)

If you come to this area to see the Iglesia Candelaria, you can't miss this lighthouse.
I'm not sure if you can go inside, but it worth some photos from outside.

Similiar to most light houses you will see but complex of buildings is attractive & location in Plaza Faro is worth a visit

It's a nice lighthouse but you can't go inside. The best part of the lighthouse is the blue church next door which is very pretty.
