  • Although Sunday was made, the lighthouse keepers offered a guided tour. Two lighthouse keepers are alternated in the 48 hour rhythm with their work. Almost all works including maintenance on the buildings run by themselves and everything is in top condition. Alone, to clean the lens, both will need a full week together. Things that were replaced as gas lighting, are still fully operational and will be exhibited in the Museum. Since the lighthouse mid-90s was connected to the power grid, the old generator is used only as a backup. A visit to the Lighthouse is really recommended from my point of view, not only the good prospect for, but because of the fascinating art. For visitors, the lighthouse opens every Wednesday afternoon. Visitors with children: Please touch not the lens!

  • For people looking forward to see a light house its a good experience because the view is very nice and you have to walk a bit to the sort of foreland.  more »
  • Awesome place with an amazing view of 180 degrees. A Cove is accessible via a small path on the right or was an old treatment of whale oil factory - remain a few vestiges of the tanks. Possible swimming around the reef. One of the most beautiful places of the island. Sumptuous landscape.
