    Flamenco Island (Pacific Signal Station)

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I love to take photos of lighthouses, and the Panama Canal is a particularly rich place for lighthouses. When I saw this little building set into the side of the hill, I took some pictures but I wasn't really sure whether it was a lighthouse or not because usually lighthouses are at the top of hills and not in the middle. But it is a lighthouse, built in the 1920s and it is an active lighthouse at that.

    It has alternating white and red lights, osculating every 5 seconds. The lantern is mounted directly on the face of a steep bluff. It is on an island about 5 mi southeast of the Canal entrance. Because of that my photos were taken early in the morning when there wasn't much light. The island, site of a popular restaurant and marina, is connected to the mainland by the Amador Causeway, but we don't know if there is any public access to the signal station area.
