One can consider this visit as a two in one attraction. Firstly the lighthouse, a reconstruction of the original that was on the small island just off the coastline. I really hope that money is made available to bring this together. There is certainly enough space to put some exhibits together to make this a very good attraction. Currently there are some interesting snippets and all of them good.
One can climb to the top by a set of stairs, to give a lovely view at the top. No fresnel lens in the tower but a lovely view.
The building is set in lovely grounds which are well kept. There are a few picnic tables in the grounds.
Off to the left is a small path that leads down to a set of wooden stairs that will take you down to the beach area. At low tide one can walk to the right and explore the beach, overshadowed by the steep red cliff. Caution is necessary with respect to the the time of the tide, but of course this is reason for the visit in the first place!
The weather was beautiful, the location great and the people at the lighthouse very friendly.
