Worth the trip!

Stunning wild location - well worth the drive to get there. Great sea views - spectacular, shame we didn't have longer at this location.

From the lighthouse yard can see an amazing view of cliffs which are situated on both sides of the cape. I believe this cape,is held out to be the most westerly point in Europe. Next stop North America! The lighthouse is large and is said to have a beacon which can be seen 60 miles away. It is located high... More

Not a lot here but the views are amazing. There is a small gift shop and a Cafe for refreshments. Walk all around the area as the views change, also it is a nice but small museum to visit, reasonably priced, that takes about 25 -30 minutes to walk around with information about the area .

3 miles from town with a working light house. Great views and sunsets will take your breath away. Bring your euros for the restrooms.

There was so much wind and clouds that we didn;t get to see anything. There was an actual white blanket draped over the view. But it was pretty spectacular anyways. When we drove back the air cleared and on the right side was this little stop. Fantastic view and nobody there, so it was really nice to get the views... More

Amazing cliffs either side of this Cape. The site itself is a little underwhelming with a couple of small cafes and gift shops. There is a small museum and apparently tours up the lighthouse but these didn't seem to be running when we've visited It wasn't crowded when we visited but we were out of season Amazing cliff walks either...

Stopped there on our way down the coast line , with the place east to find - not just by the building but also the tourist buses heading there. We were off season but it was still pretty busy , with a mix of locals , foreigners and tourist groups that got shuttled there by buses. Place offers some nice... More

Definitely worth a visit but a bit crowded. Recommended visit is earlier in the morning. It is possible to walk around the cliffs from where the best picture of the lighthouse can be taken.

This is a nice place to watch the ocean. It's very windy and the sea can be very rough. Beautiful views along the cliffs.

Thank NoeB1
