The walk to the Lighthouse is really nice. If you want an even fresher air to breath in Macao, then hiking up to this place is the best option. Uphill is also a good spot to get a panoramic view of the city —and it's all free. The only downside to this place is that there's no proper English direction to some of the locations. Note: Don't forget to bring water.
Remember to wear a comfy shoes the hills were too tiring a really long walk going up there, bring some snacks and drinks to refresh. I have a fear of heights but I have a great day here. This is the highest point of Macau :-) there's a huge park over there where you can jog on.
Guia Lighthouse gives a very exotic mood as well as great views. The chapel next to the lighthouse is so small that there cannot be Mass held inside, and actually it seems to be for exhibition only. The lighthouse is too small to stay for hours and understandably not allowed to get in.
Really fantastic view of the city, nice old lighthouse and surrounding buildings, not very busy and set atop of a large hill with a nice park to explore. There's a small museum but not much information there. Mostly I enjoyed taking in the view.
Great place with good view to pineapple Lisboa casino. Also can recommend see opposite side of the hill where is are with apartment buildings.
This is a really sweet place to visit! Lots of history took place within the walls of this fort. I do highly recommend taking a cab up the mountain to the fortress, especially if you have no idea how to walk there. Once up there, you'll find fantastic views of Macau (below are three pictures from atop the fort) while breathing in clean, fresh air. Entrance is free to the public
