Could not actually access the lighthouse because the area was fenced off. I suppose we could have went through the hole but it did not seem right. This isn't really worth the drive because unless you come when the tour is.

The entire area was fenced off. We tried several locations to get some good photographs of the lighthouse. It was closed and there wasn't any access we could find. Not worth the trip to find it. We did see a sign that it was closed,...More

Absolutely - you could walk along the road over to the park and to the lighthouse. It was maybe a 5 minute drive from the train station to the park so walking wouldn't be a problem.
