The ferry operators are awesome. We got drinks and snacks and there was good music. The island is pristine so bring a bag to remove your own trash.

Hello, the dock is located right in the middle of both the light house ruins and the beach. The walk to the light house could be done in probably 45 minutes to the left of the dock. Hope I'm being helpful here.
