Stopped here and there is really nothing to do. A nice view of the sea. Best to spend your time elsewhere.

CSA has a catamaran trip (booze cruise) several times a week for its guests. The last point before returning to CSA is the Lighthouse. There is also another one before this but not certain if its is functioning or just a tourist photo opt.

Went by to visit the lighthouse but the place was closed and looked abandoned. You can get a nice picture at sunset at Rick’s Cafe which is located couple of meters next to it.
