  • Beautiful view of the red island, its harbour, the beaches and the sea. The walk is easy to get to and worth a visit.

  • 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.
