The Lighthouse is situated at the southern part of the island around the protected tree park.



Even thou the Protected Tree Park looks totally dead, I tried to bent some branches and there were still green life within them. It's just summer having the effect on the trees, I bet during the rainy season these place looks adorable.


“Baluarte”located at the Protected Tree Park just nearby the lighthouse. It was said to be a historical watchtower built as part of a warning system to thwart slavers and marauders in the 19th century.
