This is not just another lighthouse on a small island. It's at the southernmost point of Argentina and Chile and has tons of birds and perfect for photos. It's easy to visit on a catamaran tour of the sights of Beagle Channel from Ushuaia.

Saw the lighthouse as part of Beagle Channel boat trip. The boat went around the island and stopped up close so tourists could take photos.

This lighthouse is on an island teeming with wildlife in the middle of the Beagle Channel. We went by on a boat tour. The scenery behind it is beautiful so for photographers this is a hot spot to take some very scenic pictures.

We were on a boat tour through the Beagle Channel and saw this lighthouse. It stands as a lone sentinel on a small island in the Channel between Argentina and Chile. I don’t think they let people onto this island but that’s okay since it...More

Just another Faro, but on a special location. The boat trip to get here is nice. Some sea wolves on a neighboring island

We visited the lighthouse as part of a boat tour through the Beagle Channel. While very picturesque, the lighthouse was somewhat overshadowed by the fabulous wildlife we saw on the way to Les Eclaireurs! Still, a nice spot to visit!
