  • Was surprised to find this one. Apparently recently built as a replica, was in perfect condition. No guides or people around to answer questions, was disappointed by that fact. No stamp, no charge, no tour, just a replica light.
  • Lovely area with a large playground for kids right in the vicinity. Lots and lots of history and just an all around cool atmosphere/vibe! Highly enjoyable on a cool day!
  • The lighthouse is located in an easily accessible area. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Easily photographed.
  • Pretty view and looks awesome wanted to go inside and check out but it was closed and in was in the open hours and came back twice but no one was there
  • Great place for photos in views of the harbor including getting the setting sun light reflecting off the building. Public Parking.
