  • Historic site. One of few radio stations installed on shore by Marconi for radio transmission experiments. Not much actually remains - no antennas, equipment and description of experiments itself and people participated. Only old shed left built in 1904. It is worth to visit - nature is stunning, plenty of walks.
  • Beautiful Lighthouse in a very scenic environment. there are some good hiking trails around it.
  • The most beautiful lighthouse I have seen so far.
  • Cash only
  • We saw the sign on the road of the appeal and that there was a bathroom... I really want... we decided to take advantage of the historic monument and toilets... arrive after 4 kilometers in the Woods to be told that the two toilets are break... I liked paying the $ 6 to visit the lighthouse but with a bathroom no thanks... want more it make you sign the cursed book visitor... fix your toilet!
