  • Visited on Saturday 15th February. Since our last visit there they have restored one of WW2 bunkers and is open to see. There is plenty to do whist you are there.  more »
  • Lighthouses are always a cool place to visit, and a reminder of a time gone by. Tours are on offer here and a worth a look!  more »
  • Amazing sunset views, even got to see a friendly seal swimming around relaxing by the pier. Breathtaking and stunning views. High recommend you to take the time to see the sun set. Bring a jacket and or wear long pants are it gets quite windy and cold once sun sets.
  • Wonderful place for a rock ramble at low tide and all ages snorkle in some of the rock pools in low tide. The lighthouse itself is open for tours and highly recommend of you are in the area on a tour day. Beautiful beaches surrounding the tidal rock area are great for general swimming and the pier is great to drop a line in. Photographer s delight 👍
