I took the walk from city center and it took around 2h. It is very nice trail and view from the lighthouse is remarkable. I couldn’t see sank ship as it was very windy but still I can recommend it.

The Lighthouse was a short 5km drive from the William Stree Shops. When we arrived just before 10am, there were already some 8 cars parked around the edge of the Cul de Sac at the lighthouse. We were lucky to get one of the last...More
