Le Phare du cap Camarat

listed (CMN)

Dominated by Camarat lighthouse, the second in France for the height of the light above sea level (130 meters) source, it owes its name to a manor of the fourteenth century. For safety reasons, the lighthouse cant be visited anymore. Classified in 1993 as a natural site, it dates of 1838. Electricity replaced petrol in 1946. Since 1977, it is automated and remote from the lightouse of the island of Porquerolles. Its light signal with a range of 60 km, pace the beautiful summer nights with its white light grouped into 4 parts 15 seconds.

At the foot of his tower, by mistral time, it benefits of a dazzling light that allow to see the sea at infinite, the varois coast and his capes ; at west, the Golden Islands: Le levant, Port-Cros, Bagaud and Porquerolles.

The walkers, take the little path that joins up the coastal trail (littoral), just before the “birds island”: to Est we arrive at Pampelonne beach in 50 minutes, to West, the Escalet in about 2:20 hours, and Cap Taillat in 3 hours.
