We set out to the Lighthouse only to find this Wildlife Refuge. At $5 per person, it was monies well spent. The birds that build their nests into the hillsides and fly above the ocean are so relaxing to watch. The waters below and caves are a sight too see. Sure wish there was a way to get down to the water as I have never seen anything like it!

Check the hours! We luckily arrived just before they stopped letting people in. Lighthouse itself was under renovation, maybe it's done? But AMAZING, as always. Not sure there's a bad sight on this island!

It's not always open; so arriving too early or late will keep you from touching the lighthouse; regardless, the birds are always there, always viewable, always active, and wonderful to watch.

I've been here 3 different times in a year and love the transitions of fledglings to mating to birds going to sea. I love looking for the monk seal along the shelf of the coves and the green turtles. Weather changes make it interesting from calm seas to high tides never the same. The tropic birds catch an updraft and hang like kites in the air. The mewing of the sheer water. I was lucky to see a blue-footed booby feeding it's young in a nest in a tree close to the entrance, a ball of white fluff . The volunteers and paid staff are all helpful. Whales have been seen here early and late in the season. I wish that you could tour the inside of the lighthouse.

This is basically just a promontory from which you get nice views of the coastline and the many birds that frequent the area. The day we visited, there was a monk seal basking on the beach in the cove that you could see through the little scopes that are mounted by the path. It's the kind of place I would have liked to spend an hour or two just enjoying the scenery and the peacefulness, but my family rushed me out to get on our way to the beach. There is a small fee to enter, but it is worth it.
