  • About halfway from Ushuaia to the Penguin is the lighthouse of the end of the world. Very impressive. If you're lucky you'll find it right under the sea lion lighthouse.

  • The seals are very close together, look for each other for much needed warmth, because it Is cold in Ushuaia, the road there is about 16. Km! Also many bird species to see and photograph because you can get there nearby!

  • This is the favorite meeting point for cormorants and seals, they are happily stinking and flying all around the the rock and the lighthouse. I would suggest to stop on the way to the penguin island and not to make a trip just to come here. Sunset was lovely!
