The Phare des Baleines
One of the tallest and most powerful lighthouses in France
Thanks to the wonderful views from the top, the Phare des Baleines, or Whales’ Lighthouse, is the most visited sight on the island despite the arduous climb to the top, 57m high with 257 steps leading to the stunning views available from the top.
Once you get there a stunning panorama of beaches, wild coastline, salt marshes and woodland unfolds before your eyes.
