We did not stop in the town itself, but followed the road to the lighthouse area. Here there is a large car park with shops, restaurants, etc., but the main attraction is the lighthouse.
From the car park, you can walk down to the rocky outcrop and have great views of the surrounding coast and the small rocky island just off the coast, on which is built the lighthouse. This is a really pretty spot, and we saw lots of paintings and photographs of this lighthouse in the galleries and shops in all the nearby areas. I am sure there is more to do here than sit on a rock looking at a lighthouse, but on a lovely day like we had, not much beats it!
