Lovely visit inside the museum. Boards and maps in both Spanish and English. Great story of the local history. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Adjacent to the lighthouse to the west is a lovely broadwalk with lots of restaurants. Also there is a large viewing platform(half glass floor) with lovely views. The two beaches to the east of the lighthouse have nice shells.
