The lighthouse is place at the base of Mount Portofino and it is at the start of the bay. It may be reached by ground from a nice walk around the green which starts from the right side of the piazzetta, until St. George’s Church and from then onto the lighthouse. We advise wearing comfortable shoes and lots of drinks.
The lighthouse with its white tower, with an adjacent two stories high building, it is of the 3 second interval, red light type and of 7 meters range. Even today, it is a precise focus for boats, as it is the farthest place on the natural port which is very well protected from winds and billows.

It houses the docks where luxurious yachtes that have made the history of Portofino stand. In future times, at the end of the pier Umberto, one will be able to use a lift to get from there to Castle Brown. At the end, one may find local fishermen fixing their nets.
