Port du Cap Levi, a small drying harbor, lies 0.5 mile S of the light. It is used by local fishing boats and yachts.
An area of rocky shoals extends up to about 2 miles N of Cap Levi and is marked by a lighted buoy. This area is steep-to and the sea breaks on it in rough weather. Tete Septentrionale, with a depth of 9.2m, and another shoal patch, with a depth of 9.3m lying 0.3 mile ENE, form the outermost dangers of this area.
La Pierre Noire, with a least depth of 2.2m, lies about 0.3 mile S of Tete Septentrionale.
