Having been fortunate to have visited twice once in October and then in April - the air feels so clean and the views - we were very fortunate to have a very clear day even though the bad April storm had just passed.

We didn't visit the Lighthouse itself, we walked around and had a nice view of the coast and the sea.

We did not have a clear horizon. The sun vanished in the mists. Nothing special. Make sure to go there only when you have no mist on the horizon. We waited for the sun set on the patio of the nearby bar. Quite nice.

Definitly worth the visit if you are in lagos. They are now fabricating a wooden walkway which takes you all past the edge of the cliff with great views and lookouts towards the sunset. It ends with a charming little lighthouse, but the route is...More

Spectacular Sea Views and apparently amazing sunsets. Free parking and plenty of photo opportunities.

We enjoyed an amazing sunset here , well worth the drive out this most westerly point on the island for this spectacular natural "show"

Worth visiting for the views. The museum shuts for lunch so we missed it. The car park is full of skinny, stray cats for some reason, none of which move to make room for cars!
