Albion Light House
The Albion lighthouse, also known as Pointe aux Caves Lighthouse was built and inaugurated under the government of Sir Charles Cavendish Boyle. The lighthouse is located in the village of Albion and is considered as the only lighthouse being situated on the cliffs and caves of Pointe Aux Caves. It was built in 1910, shortly before Governor Boyle retired, and the architecture was unique for the island. It has an impressive height of 30 metres and it still provides guidance to current ships
Despite being more than hundred years old, the structure is still the same, and the interior is mainly made of the original design and the same materials. The climb to the peak of the Lighthouse is an intimidating one with creaking stairs.
However, you will be rewarded at the top with an amazing panoramic view of the landscape and sea view. Take sometimes to enjoy this peaceful atmosphere. The maintenance of all lighthouses in the island falls under the responsibility of Mauritian Port Authority.
