Although it is up hill the walk is not as far as it seems. The exhibition is quite interesting but the views are the best part. Make sure you cross the road using the wooden bridge which you cannot see from the main beach. Just...More

A worthwhile walk if only for the exercise and the views, but if you actually want to visit the lighthouse itself it would be a good idea to check the opening hours. We didn't and it was shut. Never mind.

Active lighthouse overlooking Calella with fantastic views, well worth the walk up hill to take a few photos.

need to be on the right hand side of the road out of calella, is only a 8 min walk round the bend and immediate right turn on the bend. Free to look around and not a long or difficult walk.

Its a hell of a walk in the heat from calella. And it was shut with no signs as to say when it would be open. However, if you do walk there look out for the little lizards basking in the sun
