Yes it's a light house. The down stairs is blocked off at present and bored up. Would be great if you could go up and have a view from top. But really it's a light house.

Really nice area for bars and restaurants and some nice shops. Areas to chill and stoney beaches. Nice change from the sand. Great for photography and round the corner from the big bus stop.

The tower looks nice and the surrounding is beautiful, not much to do here, but you can enjoy a nice walk along the shore.
