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.

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.

We enjoy going here just for the view and the piece and quite to sit and watch the waves. Plenty of little coves around with some good beaches.
