    Beautiful restoration, unexpected architecture, nice sailing and special thanks to the office lady who called me to make sure I would make it on time and waited for me with the ticket to make sure I could board even though I was a few minutes late. Very much appreciated! All in all I am super happy I could make it!

    Beautiful building that is so much more than your everyday lighthouse where you can only climb the steps and nothing more. Accessible only at low tide, getting here is quite the adventure. The rocks around the lighthouse are a good place to go looking for mussels, oysters, anemones and crabs, and the road that become accessible makes it seem as you though could walk all the way back to shore. The only thing that is less nice is that, once you are done and just want to go home, the boat ride back seems to take an eternity.

    Amazing moment! You take a boat trip to the sea then a boat-truck ride to the lighthouse. The boat floats then rides the bottom of the ocean. Depending of the tides, you may have to walk 10 minutes on the sand/bottom of the ocean at some point to reach the boat-truck, that was a unique experience! The lighthouse is beautiful, the last one inhabited in the world. The wardens are also giides, friendly and funny. A MUST DO!

    Our cruise ship itinerary said we are going to Bordeaux, but we land here at Le Verdon Sur Mer. This is two hours from Bordeaux with no taxi, train, or bus that can take us there. Not much to see...

  • "Bucket list"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Stefan C (Limoges, France) on 05/10/2021

    Another one off my bucket list, I have had a photograph of this lighthouse on my wall for many years, I only saw on TV recently that you could actually visit, so off I went. Not disappointed at all...

  • "The most beautiful lighthouse I have ever seen"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by R0M41N_L (Jerusalem, Israel) on 01/08/2021

    Stunning place, beautifully preserved. The lighthouse guards are friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the trip, but you should prepare an extra pair of shoes in case you have to walk in the water...
