Ruin planted in a mysterious setting with ghostly allures, the lighthouse of the Pointe du Sud-Ouest remains very impressive, although it is necessary to avoid getting too close to it and, above all, entering it. The small family cemetery, the remains of adjoining buildings and, also, the strange vegetation that surrounds it certainly help to create this special atmosphere. A guided tour from the Chicotte-la-mer sector will introduce you to this exceptional site.
