We can see this lighthouse from far. In fact we had fun looking for the lighthouse, and most often than not, we saw it often. I liked the white lighthouse and we had the opportunity to visit. Nice view! Worthwhile to see!

Having already walked 10 miles, ascending the lighthouse was never going to happen! Fortunately, the views from the base are pretty spectacular. Great place to visit.

We walked up from the tram drop off point. The views from the location were great vistas of the island. Surprised that there was an additional fee to climb up to the top of the Lighthouse. We opted out on that.

From the information center, the total cycling return route via the central lakes road is about 12 km of undulating hills, which is aright for a regular cyclist, but, for beginners, it can be quite tiring. I saw quite a number of cyclists who chose...More
