From Southwest Point, a mile or so south of Matthew Town, you can see Cuba's coast—slightly more than 50 mi west—on a clear day from atop Inagua Lighthouse, built in 1870 in response to the number of shipwrecks on offshore reefs. It's a grueling climb—the last 10 feet are on a ladder—but the view of the rugged coastline and Matthew Town is worth the effort. Look to the west to see the hazy mountains of Cuba. Be sure to sign the guest book, just inside the door
to the lighthouse.
