I love this place and have visited it before as the climb to the top is worth the incredible view BUT.. it was sadly inaccessible due to maintenance work on the lower wall and completely shut due to covid.. however there was no real need to do this at all as maintenance on the lower wall should not stop you from walking to the top and there is nothing to cause a covid risk as the chapel cannot be entered except by appointment only. And no risk caused by a little rebuilding work on the lowest wall. Normally would give this place 5 stars as an attraction, two stars is due to the disappointment at having access.

Shame this was closed due to CoVid-19 - we wanted to walk up to it as our air bnb was next to it so we can could see the green lighthouse light every evening. Unfortunately it was surrounded by youngsters climbing the scaffolding and hanging around the church, it put us off going up to it.

Great 360 degrees Views all around once you climb up. A little bit of a climb but worth the views. Located near the end of the harbour. Still is a working lighthouse.

This seen as you wander round the harbour or view the Verity sculpture. Was thinking twice about what looked like a very steep climb up. Wasn't half as bad as we thought. The small road/path is very good, winds around the hill and has a bench halfway up. Though I would say think twice if you have any problems with mobility. When up there it is well worth it. A small, tightly spaced little church with good views and the tiny chapel is very soothing. Very steep twisty stairs lead to upper floors. Not a long visit, but definitely worth doing. In going up there, the views of the old harbour and the rock formations give great views.

there is no signs at the entrance to the chapel.its only when you get to the top of the chapel that there is a sign that says no dogs allowed.. so you walk up the steep hill for nothing .
