Description
Escarpados Light or Playa Larga stands atop the rocky cliffs along the north shore of the Beagle Channel east of Ushuaia. The lighthouse is a square pyramidal tower with yellow and black horizontal slats as day marking. The light displays a white flash every 10 seconds.

I was able to photograph this light on a day trip on the Beagle Channel when we were returning to Ushuaia from Faro Les Eclaireurs.
