3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Don't waste time on it. Much better places to visit. I reached at the ticket booth at 3.30 and was turned away. Rude staff

“As long as you're visiting the lighthouse...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

You might as well visit the wildlife refuge since the lighthouse is actually with in its boundaries. There are lots of birds to see, and the signs explain the part the birds played in making this island paradise such a lush green place.

“Lighthouse and loads of birds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Pleasant afternoon - I was surprised that there wasn't more to learn about the lighthouse. We saw many species of birds, surprised to see some growing chicks being raised in the bushes. We got to use free binoculars and watch spinner dolphins waking up, ready to play. Well worth it!

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

It's pretty from outside looking down but it's truly beautiful once you pass the gate. It's like $5. Totally worth it

“Light House visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This was a great chance for photos and scenic views. You also get to watch a lot of sea birds. The gift shop/visitors center had a lot of information but it was one of the places that cost money to walk up and see. I enjoyed it but most of the scenery on the island is free!
