    • Discover the Cordouan Lighthouse, boarding the Jules Verne III or Cap Cordouan in Royan, and visit this exceptional monument for its architectural quality. Built in the 16th century on a rocky islet, the Lighthouse of Cordouan nicknamed "Versailles of the Seas", 68 meters high with its 301 steps, stands majestically between Estuary and Ocean. For more than 400 years, it has guided sailors through the passes at the mouth of the Gironde Estuary, the largest estuary in Europe.

      First lighthouse classified as a Historic Monument in 1862, it is the only lighthouse at sea in the world still inhabited by keepers and open to visitors. The Cordouan lighthouse is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


      We have been transporting visitors to Cordouan since 1992. The visits are organized in partnership with the SMIDDEST manager of the lighthouse. The islet of Cordouan is accessible only a few hours a day, at low tide; the number of visitors is limited.

    Great service to be able to visit the Cordouan Lighthouse !. We bought the tickets through their website, arrived at the port of Royan we went to their kiosk where they gave us the tickets for both the cruise and the visit to the lighthouse. Awesome! If you are in this area of ​​France, a visit is strongly recommended. The cruise necessary to reach this lighthouse located in the middle of the sea is fascinating. At the indicated time, they embark you at the indicated pier; they take you near the shoal, then load you on a barge / amphibious vehicle and disembark you on the pier of the lighthouse where you walk in the water to the entrance. After the visit, to return to the boat you must take a walk between the water of the low tide and the shoal that emerges during the phenomenon, reach the point indicated for the meeting from which you are brought back on board by the same means and to continue up to port. Beautiful experience, very special. The crew is very kind and very precise in their information. Strongly recommended shoes for walking in the water or plastic sandals. I strongly recommend it

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by OliviaJJL (Bordeaux, France) on 15/07/2020

    Nice boat ride out to the lighthouse. It's worth being early to be on top of the boat though, especially if you tend to get sea sick. The staff was friendly and informative. The last stretch from...
