  • We had an opportunity to visit the inside and it was interesting. On the way there was also a view for a beautiful waterfall. I recommend for the people who can walk uphill (on the way back).
  • Very nice view both of the sea as well as of the land above. Couldn't go inside but if from the outside is worth it, the inside should be priceless. WARNING: Walk down and up, don't take the car down unless it is a 4x4. Things can get complicated otherwise.
  • Steep walk, much easier to drive just up the road 2 minutes and pull over to the side of the road at the lookout and see the lighthouse!
  • Wonderful view from this spot, consider walking by foot, not going by car, because of a steep slope downhill.
  • The lighthouse guide was very friendly during visit
