If you are into lighthouses then great you will no doubt enjoy it. There is nothing there of any notable interest!

Nice lighthouse, reminds you of the old times with no GPS, seems historic. After long drives on the island, great place to walk around, observe the waves breaking, the lava shore, the sea gulls, enjoyable.

Quite a way out if you are not staying north part of the island. There's a cafe at the light house, where you can sit shielded from the wind and watch the waves. There's not much sandy beach around it but you can go further...More

Beautiful area with it’s rugged coastline. Small museum and cafe with toilets. Nice sitting area for taking in the views and keeping out the wind. Plenty of parking.
