Built in 1857, Phare de la Pietra is an operational lighthouse built atop a square white masonry tower with a gallery and a green lantern. The land is almost an island surrounded by the Mediterranean and is connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. From the top you can see Monticello, the port, and Santa Reparata di Balagna. Remember to bring your camera to this well-known lighthouse for picturesque snapshots from the top.

Phare de la Pietra reviews
Amazing view. The place is going through restoration. To get there take the mini Train from ile rousse city center. The walk is nice but when it's too hot, it's very tiring more »
We really liked the view of this lighthouse, beautiful rocks, transparent water that invites you to swim, very good more »
Good views all around. A good destination for a run or walk. Apart from vistas, nothing really there other than the light house once you get there.
Lovely place! Great to visit before you get on the boats to the mainland. Be sure to also walk down the path to the ruin of the small chapel. There's a train that will take you up from the town center if you cannot walk up to the lighthouse.
