It's a very easy walk down the pier to a very classic lighthouse. Cool to watch the sunset from the pier and watch the little town light up behind you.

Gorgeous Lighthouse with stunning sunsets. Any season is great but winter gives the most bang, with the tremendous waves beating the Lighthouse or when it is covered in glistening ice! Summer sunsets are to be cherished at this Lighthouse!
