  • One of the best views on the island. Don’t drive to the bottom. Wear good shoes and be ready for wind. You get some views that honestly rival the cliffs of moher in Ireland. The lighthouse is really n...  more »
  • Beware the path that leads to the Lighthouse is very steep... Best to park the car up and down has feet. Apart from the splendid view, the Lighthouse is not open to the public. The climb is then sports!

  • We were extremely lucky to visit the lighthouse on the only day it's open to the public, Wednesday afternoon. We were given a tour of the entire lighthouse by Pedro who explained how everything works, and even climbed into the actual top of the tower after climbing some narrow and steep stairs! The road down to it is very steep so be prepared with some comfortable footwear.
  • Interesting if you like light houses. Pretty view. You get a short personal tour if you want which brings you to the top. Be aware, the road down is very very steep and should not be attempted if you have issues with health. You can drive down but you need to be ready for the incline.
  • There is basically no parking at the top of the road The walk down and back up was exhausting and I wouldn't recommend it in a vehicle. We got to the bottom and discovered the lighthouse was closed and inaccessible. The only thing I found particularly enjoyable was taking a look at remains of a couple old buildings along the road down.
  • Amazing lighthouse with great viewpoints on your way down. It’s a very steep climb though but definitely worth the effort. On Wednesday the lighthouse is open for visitors. But if you see someone around he’s probably kind enough to show you the place on any other day. Nowadays it’s military property.
  • We never got a chance to see inside but it was beautiful from the outside with the lights on. The view around was amazing and there's one waterfall we saw from afar.
