Lighthouse with foghorn. Nice views with penguins nearby. Interesting history of the area and a listing of wrecks on the reef.

My husband and I love lighthouses so this was a must do. When we saw it from far, we couldn't believe our luck, it's a beautiful lighthouse in excellent condition and the weather was stunning too! An absolute must do, it's free. Loved it!

Lovely views across the Tamar and around the coastline. Easy to access by a very short walking track and no steps at all.
