A lovely old lighthouse with plenty of history, but unfortunately the whole place is fenced off with metal fencing. The gardens have been let go as so very untidy and overgrown. If you are in the port area its a stones throw away.

Stumbled across this lighthouse whilst walking around the east end of the harbour, unable to gain access as it was fenced off. Nothing more to say, took a photo and left, don't go out of your way to find it.

Although there is quite a bit of history I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. The gardens around it are a bit scruffy and you can't access it. A good point to aim for if you are walking the Estepona Paseo from the...More

A little walk around here was very informative with notice boards giving lots of information. And great views of Gibralter.

Situated at the town side of the port, the lighthouse is small and uninteresting. Don't go to any effort to see it.

Was expecting to be overcome by cats when visiting this place, based on previous reviews! There were none on the day we went. There are some informative panels about the gardens that have been planted and the lighthouse itself (still manned, what an amazing job!)....More

This unusual looking lighthouse looks odd amidst its surroundings, which I think makes it all the more unusual.
