The road goes along merrily for about 5km, though you might have to be careful of the odd goat or two. You then see the lighthouse perched on top of a hill and what a hair raising road up to the summit it is. Certainly...More

Worth a visit - a lighthouse situated on top of a rock. There's a car park and a viewing platform overlooking the ocean. A winding, fun mountain road leads to this place.

The lighthouse is beautiful, but you cannot enter so it can only be admired from outside. The views surrounding it are lovely and can be taken in from a walkway that extends out above the sea cliffs. We only stayed 15mins to have a look....More
