Discover the Lighthouse of the Whales in Saint Clément, visit to do on the island of Ré

The Baleines lighthouse is located at the western tip of the island of Ré (Charente-Maritime), in the town of Saint-Clément-des-Baleines. The lighthouse owes its name to the fact that a relatively large number of whales used to beach themselves here on the Ile de Ré in the past. It succeeds the old Baleines lighthouse built by Vauban.

Built in 1854, this lighthouse has become the historical emblem of the Ile de Ré. You can discover all its secrets by visiting the lighthouse museum located at the foot of the old whale tower.
