Punta Carena lighthouse

Things to do - general

Punta Carena lighthouse is, for locals, mainly a bathing spot – with its adjacent rocky bay relatively undiscovered by tourists, where they can jump in and enjoy a refreshing swim.

It is, however, worth noting that this isone of the oldest lighthouses in Italy – inaugurated in 1856 under the Bourbons – and the second brightest after Genoa lighthouse.

Its position on the south-western extremity of the island makes it a sight best seen at sunset.

Unfortunately there are no tour offers at this location at the moment.
