About the Albion Lighthouse
Ever been inside a lighthouse that is still operational? If you have never been to one, now is the chance for you to correct that and head to Albion for a visit to the Cave Point lighthouse.
Standing proudly on the edge of the cliff and overlooking the sea, the lighthouse serves as guides for incoming ships to enter the harbour of Port Louis. With an iconic red and white stripes from top to bottom, the Cave Point lighthouse was inaugurated in 1910 and is still intact. To access the top of the lighthouse, you will have to climb up the 98-step wooden and cast iron staircase.
You might wonder why you should bother with climbing all the way to the top, but be sure that the effort is so worth the climb. You will be rewarded with magnificent panoramic views of the entire coastline from Pointe aux Sables to Flic en Flac. For those who are afraid of heights, a walk along the trail that runs up to the lighthouse does also offer breathtaking views over the shoreline. We recommend taking a break, closing your eyes and listening to the beautiful sounds of the waves crashing against the cliffs.
Not only is it a popular spot for photographers with the amazing background for pictures, you will also find under the cliffs the entrance to a cave which is inhabited by birds and bats.
Under the cliff, some daring cliff divers climb the rocks for an impressive cliff jumping into the sea or you can also capture the sight of fishermen luring in fishes. The sunset promises to impress you with the beautiful fusion of colours of the sky, sun and the sea.
It is not recommended to visit the Albion Lighthouseon a windy day.
