Ok, so when we visited, the lighthouse was closed - if you do plan to visit, be sure to check opening times! The lighthouse from the outside doesn’t look like much, nothing to really say about it other than it could use a fresh lick...More

Frankly I struggle to give this 2 Stars. It is just an ordinary lighthouse with a notice board giving brief details of its history. Everywhere was boarded up. There is some pleasant coastal resorts alongside which are attractive

We had a nice visit to the lighthouse. The views from the top are really good along the cliffs. It is only open from 2-4 on Wednesday afternoons, but the entry is free and the lighthouse keeper takes you up to the top where you...More

There is only a lighthouse to see I recommend to go to Marina Beach views are better than here so you save time

TBH we didn't actually visit the lighthouse itself but rather walked around it so this review is about the location rather than the lighthouse - as far as view goes you would struggle to beat this one - spent hours just wandering around the cliffs...More

Every Wednesday from 1400 to 1600, you can have a tour of the lighthouse for free. The lighthouse keeper speaks good English, and is very friendly. You have to climb a total of 100 steps, the last few being very narrow. At the top you...More

It is important for people to realize that many of the reviews for this restaurant reflect the previous management. The new operators are offering superb service and excellent food. We were a group of four dining here in late September and we're still talking about...More
