Le cap Tortosa est l'extrémité orientale de l'île Buda, au delta du fleuve Ebro. Dans l'W du cap, à 1 MN environ, s'élève un phare, situé sur la latitude 40°42 et la longitude 0°55. Ce pylône en fer est haut de 50 m.

Il n'est pas recommandé de s'approcher à moins de 2 MN et il faut être prudent par gros temps. Les vents de NE provoquent un courant dans l'anse située au N du cap.
