A really fun out of the ordinary tourist experience, the gentleman providing the history and workings was a great addition rather than just looking and admiring the view

We were kayaking out in the bay and paddled to a rocky shore to hop off and see the lighthouse. If it's not open when you are there there's not much to do but appreciate the view and read the sign but I'm happy we saw it!

I saw this picture in the guidebook whilst planning and came just to see this lighthouse. We ended up doing other things in the area, but had a great walk around.

The Lighthouse sits at the left end of the harbour road. The views from here change throughout the day and are beautiful. As has ben mentioned by other reviewers the opening hours vary so we were never able to get into the Lighthouse.
