Au voisinage du phare, dans l'W, on voit les pylônes rouges et blancs du radiophare. Le Cap, à l'extrémité S de l'île, porte un phare.

Le phare de Cap d'Armes a été construit en 1830. Il mesure 20,66 mètres et s'élève à 84,06 mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer. Il a une portée de 29 MN. Il fut sauvé de la destruction en 1944 grâce au courage de son gardien de l'époque Joseph Pellegrino. Cet acte lui valut la croix de la Légion d'honneur. De son esplanade, on distingue la presque totalité de l'île: les collines du Langoustier, le fort Ste Agathe, le sémaphore et les falaises du sud. Plus au loin se découpent la rade d'Hyères et le massif des Maures.
