While visitors aren't allowed to go inside this lighthouse, many still make the steep hike to enjoy its panoramic views. Reviewers described the views as "stunning" and "amazing," and called it a "must-see" spot. However, if it's raining, don't attempt the walk as it's too slippery to be safe.

To reach the lighthouse, walk a little less than a mile up the Chemin du Calvaire from the Plage de la Salis. There's also a small chapel nearby, which is listed as a historical monument if you want to pay a (free) visit. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors say it is lovely.
