Awesome place to visit. If you know this place you will know it's an iconic viewing area for surfing and watching the Big waves. Don't be surprised if it's busy during peak times. The small town at the top offers plenty to drink and eat and local shops. It's about 500m downhill to the viewing point. The walk down and up is worth it especially at sunset. If you have trouble walking there is an electric vehicle that you can catch a ride in for 2-3 euros. If you walk to the right you will see a slope that takes you further down to the beach and waves. Take care doing this. If you walk to the other side the view is amazing but this is cliff edges so children and dogs should be kept close. At the very end is the lighthouse and to enter will cost you 3 euros. You don't have to do this if you don't want too. If your in the area this is a must visit. I would highly recommend
Interesting spot for everyone who likes surfing or is interesting in surfing history. In the fort you can find the museum, which you can enter for 1€, which is really fun and as a bonus you can take a picture with the iconic lighthouse. Great visit! Was a bit cloudy, but still worth the walk!
A must see place, even when not the stormy season. I would love to come and see the huge waves one day. Exhibition is great and week with the €1 entry. Beach North is quiet with clean water and great for swimming and surfing.
Good views of the bay. 2 Euro entry fee to go up on to the fort roof. There are a couple of very small exhibitions inside showing various surf boards etc. Not a lot to see it's really about getting on the fort roof for pictures
The place is generally impressive although we didn't make it on a day with very big waves. It also has a small museum about surfing which requires you to buy a ticket. The beach below the lighthouse was huge and you can imagine the wave height when you compare them to the people sitting at the beach that look like dots when you look at them from the lighthouse.
