  • Park your car at the lighthouse car park. The lighthouse itself is not accessible and therefore of no interest, but a walk from there to the centre of Ferragudo and back (8 km in total) is wonderful.....  more »
  • It's just a working lighthouse, nothing much to see. Not worth a special trip. We got lost and went to have a look as we were right there anyway.  more »
  • Lighthouse open for public tour once a week, check for times. Stunning views down the coast from here. Very scenic cliff tops for walking and cycling.
