Great short walk out to the lighthouse with wind whistling and sea birds circling. Walk out among the rocks on the shoreline. Did not go inside lighthouse. Good cafe nearby. Bracing!

Nice small lighthouse. Still in use. Has details of the history and building it around it. Views are spectacular towards the sea and inlands.

but don't go here for the lighthouse. The elephant seals are less than 100 meters away. They can be viewed from the platform, but you need assistance from an official guide to go down the steps to get close to them.
