  • I took the car down and I was the first one (and only one) to open the Nature Reserve...it was such a magical moment. You can hike to the lighthouse, it's a 10 minutes route but I highly recommend it.  more »
  • there were great views as you walked up the very steep path with loads and loads of steeps, but everywhere was very crowded,  more »

  • 4 Stars - worth going given its historical significance. The history of trade and sailors fascinate me a lot and that’s why I enjoyed the being here. Otherwise, it’s mostly a typical tourist lighthouse. The wind was very very strong like it could blow you away on the day we’re there.
  • Amazingly picturesque. It is totally worth the hike from the entrance. I felt so inspired to see what seemed like the entire expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. It is quite windy, so make sure you don't lose your hat!
