I personally was quite disappointed with the lighthouse, but is worth the visit. Nice view of La Manga and from what was explained obviously one of the best places to dive in Spain. The lighthouse itself isn't opened for visitors, so it doesn't look much...More

Had a good walk around the light house. Views are great. Wear decent shoes so you can climb a little. Decent cafe for a nice cold beer when you've finished. Parking free of charge.

I would bring them as we have had some small jelly fish and also it stops the odd stone doing for your feet. You can buy them in the silly shops here for very little money.
