While on the island the lighthouse is worth a short walk from the parking to see this old lighthouse. The site is a "walk around" visit only as you can not go inside the lighthouse. There is a path down to the shore on the...More

This is the best to go! Amazing history about this lighthouse. It is sad that it was not preserved to begin with. Beautiful water view and cliffs! Quiet and not many around.
