  • It should be a nice view if it wasn't raining. But it was a refreshing experience and you got a 270 degree sea view. Be prepared for strong wind  more »
  • Had been ago the Cape. After their stay in the Hotel Nikko alivila near, so I went. Morning 10:00 I too got already a lot of tourists. Came from the overseas tourist buses. Near the lighthouse in the car, parking is convenient. I think you'd better walk without problems because the equipped trail from the parking lot to the lighthouse falls out of walkways and around cliffs and rocks to be admonished and heel. We recommend that you explore in safety shoes and sandals the. You could pay the adult 200 yen climb to the lighthouse. All 99 step stairs pretty Cindy, but I climb to the top and waiting for the views. Because the wind is also no stairs are very narrow and on a hot day I watch out for children, elderly people that I thought. Potential heat stroke when you are climbing up the stairs of the lighthouse in the environment is. Lighthouse Museum located at the foot of the lighthouse, so in there where you can enjoy learning about the temple Lighthouse could also.! Lighthouse take on sunny days climb you want. Climb even take a look at the contrast of blue sky and white look. Wow.! Thinking of Lighthouse voice is refreshing. At the remaining wave Park oversized big lion's largest. There were many fishing from cliffs around the lighthouse, so locals can gurukun that fish in this area (lol) it looks so very prominent attention from anywhere and from anywhere in. And then hyahyadkidoki the sight has been fishing at the cliff-edge because it was fun. It is so close to the beach and candy Palace head office is in the vicinity of this I used 10 minutes one day. Walking on foot are highly recommended because it had spread from Lighthouse moved in the temple on foot walking candy Palace is a lovely sight.

You'll find a number of resorts, either on the coast directly west of the town center, or north and south along the shoreline. Looking out across beaches and with ample grounds for pools, restaurants, and the like, they represent the luxury options in town.
