Fantastic ocean view and photo ops. Can be very windy at times due to the cliffs, keep the kids at hand. Occasional whale sightings.

Excellent, well maintained Lighthouse. Take the tour, the view from the top is fantastic! This is a "Can't Miss" attraction...with an unmatched view both up and down the Coast, plus miles out to see!
