Long sandy beaches and room for everyone
LISTA LIGHTHOUSE was lit for the first time in 1836. At one time, there were actually three lighthouses at one point to distinguish it from others of its kind. At that time, Lista was the world’s largest lighthouse station! The foundations of the two dismantled lighthouses have been excavated and are now visible. At the lighthouse, you will find an art gallery, Visitor Centre Wetland Lista, Lista bird observatory, bike rental, Accommodation in lighthouse apartments, a gift shop and a café.
