Faro San Isidro

Faro San Isidro

San Isidro lighthouse is located near Punta Arenas in Chile. It’s the southernmost lighthouse on the mainland continent. Lit in 1904, it’s part of a chain of eight century old lighthouses placed along the shores of the Strait of Magellan.

Located in the Peninsula of Brunswick, at the shore of the Strait of Magellan, the lighthouse is located at the tip of South America. The road to reach the lighthous is gravel and sand, but the last 4km are impassable to vehicles. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! Cabo San Isidro is a landscape known for its mountain chains and wide diversity of species and habitat: subantarctic forests full of coigüe and cinnammon tree, peat lands, wetlands, highlands, glacier valleys, rivers and lakes.
