  • The lighthouse is beautiful and worth going. The best is to go by foot and walk there. It got a nice viewing point over the beach of the city.
  • It was a bit of a wait to climb the tower (even in shoulder season), but well worth it for the amazing panoramic views. Not much space at the top (which explains the wait times), which is actually makes the experience quite nice (they seem to keep it to ~10 or fewer people at a time)
