Description
Punta Espora stands on the southern tip of Isla Gable, a large island that nearly blocks the Beagle Channel east of Ushuia and south of Almirante Brown, Argentina.

We passed this light in the dark as we were crossing the Beagle Channel en route to Ushuaia. Unfortunately, all I got to see was the flash of this light.

Date unknown. Active; focal plane 16 m (52 ft); white flash every 4 s. 8 m (26 ft) conical tower, painted with red and white horizontal bands. No photo available. This light marks the southern tip of Isla Gable, a large island that nearly blocks the Beagle Channel. Accessible only by boat. Site open, tower closed. Admiralty G1311; NGA 111-2684.
