The lighthouse is a prominent landmark to spot as the sun sets. Good spot to take photos before having dinner!

There is a shuttle bus running from some hotels to this beach. The lighthouse is well known by most people that visit the island as a good tourist spot. There is a guy next to it who has done some sand carvings that are fabulous.

Nothing much to see, just an old light house. Take a picture and leave. You can't go inside. So ones you have seen it, there is no reason to stay around.

If you want somewhere to go in the evening there are a wide selection of bar and restaurant on the promenade. You can also have a drink while watching the sunset.

The lighthouse and promenade well worth a visit. The colon restaurant was very pleasant. Can't remember the name but the restaurant at the end of promenade with outdoor terrace with sea view was just amazing, from service to food. Definetly be returning

It's very expensive to eat in the restaurants all along the sea front, but that's my opinion unless your happy to pay €30+ for a steak meal or a pretty basic burger. The shops are also quite expensive but at least your be buying real clothes or shoes etc and not the market gear.
