Easy hike with impressive views of the rugged coastline and caves and becoming aware that this is where humankind probably first appeared.

We visited this location and enjoyed the views. There is a small area to park and then a short walk to the lighthouse to enjoy the view. We did not go inside as there isn't much to see.
