Très belle balade, point de vue magnifique ! Possibilité de se garer juste à côté, facile d’accès à pied par un chemin more »Very nice walk, beautiful view! It is possible to park next door, easy to walk by a path
Good views all around. A good destination for a run or walk. Apart from vistas, nothing really there other than the light house once you get there.
Lovely place! Great to visit before you get on the boats to the mainland. Be sure to also walk down the path to the ruin of the small chapel. There's a train that will take you up from the town center if you cannot walk up to the lighthouse.
