Nice hike and great views

This is a really nice walk. If you're more adventurous it's fun to climb over / around the rocks. There are two lighthouses. Great for sunset

Visitors to Ile-Rousse should take in a very nice walk up to the Lighthouse. Following the good tarmac path at a gentle pace will get you to the summit in 20 minutes. Fabulous views of the port and old town, great location to photograph the setting evening sun.

We walked up to the light house in the early morning when it wasn't too hot. I would recommend taking a drink with you as there is nothing there except the view. You can of course take the land train from the town centre to the top and back again if you don't fancy a walk when its hot. At... More

The lighthouse is quite boring, but the view is splendid, especially at sunset. The walk is easily manageable and is pleasant. A view not to be missed

The lighthouse gives you a good view of the sea and L'Ile Rousse. There's a tourist train that trundles up there, but the walk is easier than it looks. Make an effort and get some great photos!

Cool winds and great views from the top all the way up to Cape Corse. In the morning you'll meet dozens of runners - is perfect as no cars are allowed.

Walk this every day of our holidays.... Never tire of the views. Love it on a windy day especially. I think of this during the winter months at home and it always makes me smile. The blue sky and green and blue water are magnificent! Pop down to the little cove and have a swim or snorkel... It's worth it.

Great view and a good place to train uphill running. We took a swim in the turquoise waters below too. Recommended!

A superb beach, with easy parking.. clear blue water and white sand.. When you have had enough sun a walk to the light house is an easy stroll round the harbour.

We took the tourist train from the market place, which was good fun, up to the lighthouse for some fantastic views. It was a very nice experience.
