Our family hiked a portion of the lighthouse trail and had amazing views of many nesting Brown Boobies. Our daughter loved being able to see eggs and baby chicks. Be sure to wear proper footwear and bring water and sunscreen.

If you join the trail at the lighthouse end then it is a 20-30 minute drive down a straight road at the top of the brac through the woods.

You don't go to this site for the lighthouse. Its just a steel structure but the view over the cliff is pretty cool. It is very hot on this end of the island so take water and good shoes, no sandals the iron shore will not be kind.

I am not sure which is the foothpath. I drove to the top of the brac where the light house is and walked all the way but did not go down to Peters cave. It was really hot so take an umbrella and water. At some point there are weeds covering the path so you have to traipse through weeds.... More

A great walk on the bluff edge without a soul around to disturb you, with the sea crashing below

The view and wildlife was great to see. Many Boobies can be found nesting along the cliff.

The light house itself is not like the light house we have in the U.S. but the footpath was great as the Brown Footedt Boobies had just hatched their babies. The babies were still white & real fluffy. We were able to get within a few feet of them and we got great pictures also.
