Description

Inaugurated on January 15, 1854, the "whale" lighthouse was a successor to the "whale" tower erected under the orders of Vauban from 1669 until 1682, and qualifying as a historical monument in 1904. After having climbed up its 257 steps, you are 57 meters above the ocean, the "wild" coast and "whale" cove, and you may savor a fine view of the salt marshes. Equipped with two 250-watt halogen lamps with a 360° range of 27 miles, the lighthouse is among the most powerful on the Atlantic shore.
