It would be better if there was more information provided along with this hiking route with respect to the history of the city, the lighthouse and the port itself. If you are interested in those things, read up before you go because you won’t find...More

The lighthouse in Lile Rousse is a pleasant walk with great views of the surrounding area, no ammenities but plenty of hotels and shops within walking distance. Most abilities should be able to manage it.

Walked up rather than going by tourist train. Excellent views of town and seascapes. No facilities at the top which is unexpected.
