Punta Mulas Lighthouse

Punta Mulas Lighthouse, also known as Faro de Vieques, is an historic lighthouse located in Isabel Segunda on the west shore of Vieques island.

It was first lit in 1896 and automated in 1949. Punta Mulas Lighthouse was the second lighthouse built on Vieques after the Puerto Ferro Lighthouse. The light was established to guide through the dangerous passage formed by a chain of reefs. It was of key importance for navigation in the San Juan Passage.

In 1992, the lighthouse was restored in celebration of the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s first voyage to America. The structure houses a museum featuring the maritime history of Vieques and the Americas as well as other historical exhibits and it is listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
